    Greetings WGT

    I would like to Suggest for a  full game download to get rid of the loading that one has to go through on each map. This would be best for users with slow internet connection .

    Hi,

    the game is designed to be accessed from anywhere online, so there will likely not be any down loadable content offered

    What i am saying is users can download the full client version and the web browser version can stay as well ,In the downloaded version users will be needing an internet connection to play on multiplier it will just be like many MMO games(world of war craft ,Americas army etc).

    Does WGT want to keep it as a web browser game only ,is it for safety and privacy reasons or are there some other issues ?

    HI,

    Our main reason is to keep it as is, so anyone can play anywhere Nothing else :)

    You already do download them, every time you clear your cache and play WGT again, you re-download every thing all over again.  And if you have your browser set to clear cache on exit, you download everything all over again next time you play.  Keeping the game browser/streaming only is only good for the bottom line, has nothing to do with customer satisfaction or being able to "play" anywhere anytime. We have seen the problems this game has in it's current form, the lovely virus/malware issues derived from flash and advertisements, the meter which is our pc's fault.. Seriously, why is it the meter always seems to choke up during PEAK times. This is all WGT, nothing to do with our pc's whatsoever. They plaster advertisements all over the place, some shady obviously, and that just makes it more laggy. How bout an option to turn adds OFF for those who pay for the game??

    Sure, I have more gaming experience than I care to remember :)

    Simple fact is that this is what this game is designed to do: to  be accessible from anywhere and I do not think that will change

    Folks, it's called cloud computing. Check it out. That's their business model.

    In my humble view most of the issues with the meter would be addressed if the game was designed to use the graphics card processor to render the meter progress, instead of using the main system processor for that - after all graphics cards have very capable processors nowadays.

    However I am not a pc expert and don't know if there are limitations that would preclude such implementation.
