Why not - you can do both.

Until or even if that switch over happens, keep us posted with yr rpg exploits!
I will do that ... I'm still playing still levelling up and re-building to level 8.
Anyway, back on topic. I've been an RPG fan for years but finding good ones that are easy to use (point and click is awesome) is hard, I can't manipulate those 'virtual joystick' games, I have difficulty holding the tablet and manipulating the things, which I understand is the method for the mmo game. Enter Forgotten Tales Offline, a blessing in disguise. I'd GLADLY pay for it, if I could do it without a credit card. (see below)
I've tried a couple of other games, that require online access in order to upgrade weapons, armour and as they get stronger require being on line for more than 24 hours to upgrade one thing. I went looking for a game I can play, like the old ones, where if you want/need to upgrade - you 'work for it' And here I am.
I think it was/is a stroke of brilliance that the creator(s) of this game has this offline version AND the mmo game, they compliment each other.

But then this is the Off Topic thread, so that mean this is On Topic
I'm an old man - and well on my way to pushing the door open at 71. Blowing those candles out will be a chore and that fits a bit with whats coming.
I've tried a few other games but the in your face harassment to buy this, buy that, not being able to play the game "unless you buy" things ruin it for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not cheap, I just don't have a credit card, I got rid of it when I retired and have never regretted paying cash for everything. Living on a fixed income is not compatible with let's say ±22% compounded interest, I was stuck in that rut all of my working life. Then, this for everyone, add yearly fees to just have a credit card, now that's a slap in the face and
pay an extra 10% or so for things you buy just for using it, even if you clear the balance every month, that's the backhander coming around, but come on who really does that?
Today I always ask "What's the discount for paying cash?", you'd be surprised. But then, I'm just an old man that wants my few coins to work for me as much as I can today, after a life of 'live' today; pay tomorrow lifestyle.
You pay to have the card, they win
You pay to use the card, they win, the store get a kickback, and
Then comes the crippling compound interest - you're hooked, they win!
My goal with this game: I will prevail! I will find the end ... and if possibly get my memory back. Darned if that doesn't fit real life too.
