Make a multiplayer extension to the game, and you will extend your sales. The most famous strategy games are multiplayer. With no multiplayer, you interest only a fraction of the strategy game fans. And for sure, they will not post many comments for a game which doesn't interest them.
As Civilization 2 make a multiplayer hotseat extension (Civ 2 Multiplayer), the sales for Civ 2 have increased...
I know many strategy game players who don't buy FE because of the multiplayer. Think about it, make a real poll on all strategy game players and you will be surprised. (Not just an internal poll for players who have ever bought the game...)
I have played to many and many strategy games and FE has really innovative concepts. It's not like a Civ, or a Heroes Might and Magic and it's also different from AoW. According to me, FE has a real potential for being one of the most famous strategy games BUT you have to make a multiplayer extension or patch. It will be a shame if you don't make a multiplayer patch or a multiplayer extension for the game.
Have a lot of fun with FE!
