I will give that a try, hadn't thought of that. Also, as I understand it, if you want to play online, there is no way to do a direct match versus friends?

I haven't tried the game yet since I'm undecided about getting the iPhone version and scaling up so I don't have to buy the game twice plus the IAP or to just bite the bullet and settle for less online gaming with my iPad.
I play every day on both the iphone and ipad. On the iphone just play single duels and on the ipad I play campaign. If I were you I'd get the $4 ipad version first since it's the best implementation and play the six mages and put it through it's paces for quite sometime. To me this game will be played for years I'd imagine.

Yea I've tried ipad 2 and ipad 3 and have yet to get local multiplayer working. I really hope they fix it as I wanna utilize that feature soon if possible.

I downloaded this last night and am highly satisfied with my purchase. I may have overlooked it if I TA had not done a feature article. I was a fan of Kard Combat, even spending 9.99 for the full unlock but eventually lost interest in climbing the tower. Although Kard Combat's interface is slightly more sophisticated, I appreciate Spectromancer's simplified and more lighthearted, less sinister, presentation. It also seems to be much more expansive than Kard Combat, undoubtedly due to the addition of more cards and classes, more detailed story elements in the campaign, and also the suggestion of traveling the countryside as opposed to climbing a dark tower. In the end I think that it is a more than suitable replacement for its iPhone predecessor and will easily gain a permanent place on my phone next to Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer.

Indeed. Fantastic game.

Is it already a known issue that switching between League and Campaign saves can cause corruption? It may have only been a one time freak thing but I had a campaign save in which I failed the last duel. I then played some league matches against the AI. When I went to resume the campaign game it started me back in that last match and treated it as a single duel match. Win or lose the match I was just dumped back to the Main Menu at the end as if I was playing a single duel with no way to resume the campaign itself.

Any word on the local multiplayer issue myself and others have asked here and on the official forums? It is the main reason I bought the game and not very happy at not being able to play.

I have no good answer. Problems with local network were reported, but I don't know what is the reason of problems. There are 2 local networks around me, and current iPad version work fine in these networks. We will try to find out why some players have problems with LAN, but I don't know how promptly it can be fixed.

As temporary solution you can play in online league and duel only with people from your local network.

PHP Code:
Proto    Recv-Q    Send-Q    Local Address    Foreign Address    (state)

tcp4    0    0    192.168.11.4:56864    17.173.66.49:443    ESTABLISHED 
On both ipad 3 and ipad 2 .....the TCP state ESTABLISHED lasts for about 8 to 10 seconds. Then it changes to TIME_WAIT for about 5 seconds and then dissapears.

the first one is ipad 3 and this one below is ipad 2.
PHP Code:
tcp4    0    0    192.168.11.3:55111    17.173.66.48:443    ESTABLISHED 
now another time I run it port changes from 55111 to 55116 then 55119. Also on ipad 3 port changes each time to 56936 and others.

I pulled up Scrabble which has local wifi play and it's TIME_OUT seems to last about 15 seconds longer than your TIME_OUT.

Not sure if this helps or not.
