When there is such great games as SH3-4-5 ... I can't see wasting time on a browser game.

I can play SH with an internet connection or without one ... I wouldn't waste my time on any game I had to have a connection to use.

It should have been called: Silent Hunter 5 Recycled Assets Online.

It´s not too sad. I am an older SH fan. Somewhere starting from Silent Service. There are a lot of SubSims out, all can be found here at SUBSIM. I never played SHO, I saw some videos. That was enough to know. Right now, I got three installations: SH3, SH5, and SC. DW might be an option... I´ll wait till there is a 5 bucks opportunity . (No Steam pls)

Sounds to me like Silent Hunter Online is preferable to having a fatal disease.

Dont be too hard. Each to their own. There are at least a trillion games out there I would not touch with the proverbial barge pole. I do not play online against humans, but I do play a couple in Steam (Age of Empires 2 HD, for example). New games are rapidly vanishing in the shops for PCs. MY local Asda had hundreds at one stage, now its zero. They sell games for consoles, but I dont, and never will, use them.

So, as a result, I stopped looking. I have my favs, and stay there. SH4 included.

As I wrote in another topic, the IL2 CLOD community found a way around that. They have their own dedicated servers these days.

Ubisoft has nothing to do with that anymore either.

Maybe it is an idea for the SH community ?
