No single player?
What the hell guys? No campaign? And you cant port your old account from Bloodbowl (i have legendary and chaos edition, chaos edition accepted my legendary account details).

This is pretty poor. They need a single player campaign and a tutorial.

Thanks for heads up. Im really disappointed with the direction this company has been taking the franchise. I bought the first 2, but they fail to included even a SP game in this? Pretty sad corner-cutting.

Unless there is some AI, I won't be buying this, even if it's $0.50 on a steam sale.

Yeah I just bought it at 50% off not realising this. I PREFER single player. I don't WANT to play multiplayer. I can't even select and customise my own team! This is ridiculous. I will for the first time be contacting steam to demand a refund for this one.

Thanks for the info guys, sorry you had to learn the hard way.

I've been playing BloodBowl for years and never once played or have had the desire to play co-op. If this has no single player, it's not the game for me.

Does it at least offer hotseat play?

There is hotseat play.

Thanks for the quick answer, that's at least something I guess.

I really enjoyed the original Dungeonbowl (the boardgame/miniature game by Games Workshop), so no singleplayer makes me sad.

Annoyingly, there isn't even the private league admin tools that Blood Bowl has, so if a match gets disconnected, you just have to live with it, you can't reset & replay....

All those dlc's and still no single player game.

Guess I have to wait for dungeonbowl 2 and hope that gets it right.

Thanks for the heads-up :)

On importing teams:
This would not be possible, as team structures are different on DB (also in the "real" one).

Apart from that: Yes. Totally bogus not having a SP-option. (Also having to buy a lot of DLC, which is even badly explained, as sometimes a single college is mentioned, then again 2 in one pack - so their packet-price-saving is a lie also...)

But since I bought it, I am trying to get more friends into playing it. Because apart from marketing decisions, this is a very good game and a good enough port from the boardgame.

How nice. I thought. Discovered Dungeon Bowl which I didn´t even knew were out. Dungeon Bowl have never been mentioned on the Official site however. Strange though.
At first I wanted to buy it straight away, but rather then doing that, checked these forums to see what other ppl thought of it first.

Hhmmm. Ok. No Single Plr option whatsoever. Online play ONLY. And well, ok. Hotseat.
Checked who made this game. And yes, it actually WAS Cyanide Studios. The same who made the great Blood Bowl series.

So. Why/What is the reason for leaving out such a common thing as Single Player from Dungeon Bowl???
Cyanide Studios said anything about that? Can´t find anything about it on the Official site.

Anyway, won´t buy it as long as no Single Plr option in this game.

I suspect that the only reason to omit SP would be the difficulty of doing decent AI to play against. The AI for DB is trickier than BB, but given how even a poor AI may help attract people to the game (who may then move onto MP) it would have been worthwhile doing.

I just wish they'd found a way to add an SP AI that's open to modding - I'm sure someone would be able to make tweaks to a poor AI to make it play better.

i.e. If a decent DB AI is beyond the devs, do a poor AI and crowdsource improvements.

is any1 still playing???
Kundaks Sep 1, 2013 @ 7:14am 
Oh well. Let´s just see what they will do in the near future. I hope for one they add Single Player option to Dungeon Bowl, cause if they do I will surely buy it and all DLCs.
In the meantime I at least have fun with Blood Bowl.
