This morning's maintenance is a prime example of why an offline mode is absolutely mandatory before I would recommend someone pay for HLO. If the service is unavailable for any reason (whether at the host or because local conditions preclude access) then a scheduled game session is suddenly cancelled. I hadn't noticed the announcement and just went to update a character, and found I couldn't for an hour. In this case it's a minor inconvenience, but if I had a game scheduled, I would be unable to play if I used HLO as my primary source.

This is an honest question that I haven't seen answered: How can LW consider this product usable for live, in-game play if there is no facility for an offline mode for these circumstances? The circumstance will just become worse when they try to get people to adopt the Campaigns module, as then the GM will be tied to web access as well.
