Is online multiplayer asynchronous?

Hoping the multiplayer is asynchronous (cause that's how I roll). Can anyone confirm?

It is not. The gameplay in Bottom of the 9th is not suited for asynchronous play for several reasons. A primary aspect of gameplay is "the stare-down" where the state of mind between the players, including the timing of when they do things, is important. The game is relatively short - 10 minutes or less in total. There are no "turns" between players and the interactions go back and forth quickly.

Thanks! Problem is most of my friends don't have the patience to focus on one game for that long. I might pick it up for the single player though.

Cool. There is an option for quick ranked and casual play as well against random opponents =)

- We are also going to keep improving the AI in updates.

Happy to answer any more questions.
Any eta on the tablet Update as I only game on my iPad. Thanks!
