Default How do you play your SE game?

All this recent talk about Multi-Player and Solo Play has gotten me to really wonder how do you play the SE Series? Now this doesn’t have to be just SE5 if you still play SE4 that is ok answer anyway. I would say there is no need to leave an explanation for how you voted. However I know you guys and you will anyway.

Ok maybe I made the percent a little too tight. But I didn't want to get into this whole "what is majority of your time". You guys are smart you know what I mean by 75%.

Lately I've been going more and more multiplayer-only, due to lack of time.

Multi is where all the exciting action is (Games with other humans have more meaning, and more interesting situations), and it takes up very little time each week.
Even 12 hour overtime days are a non-issue, since it is only one turn before bed or while eating breakfast.

It's way to early to tell (with only 11 votes) but I am starting to see and interesting and unexpected pattern? The Anthro training just kicked in with an explanation.

You may only choose one ...
What if the percentage is less than 75% in either direction?
Also, answers with SE5 in mind will be skewed by various perceptions about one or the other mode being currently unplayable, so you'll get people answering either the amount they would like to play, mixed with people who only play another way because they don't think SE5 is viable the other way, etc.

As much as I'd like to play against human opponents, when I do play I like to play 'as much as I want', so the whole PBW style doesn't quite cut it for me. So I'm flying solo.

Don't make too much of it PvK. It's just a simple question and the around 75% thing I addressed in the second post. Thanks for taking the time to point those items out though.

PBW games take a lot of time and people tend to drop from the games or don't bother to upload turns which only adds to the delay of the game. I usually play one or two PBW games a year that go on for years. I think the longest game I was in was just over three years.

If you go by number of turns, SP. By number of games/time spent, MP.
