Just wanna throw this out there:
I love the fact that Multiplayer was added. It gave me more drive to think of creative game ideas that would utilise Multiplayer. I did make a game and put it on Newgrounds that uses Multiplayer. I made a pairing system that would match 2 players up automatically and make them have to battle, then they can move to the next player.(Although the trouble is, is that I didn't know how to get my games known so it didn't get much attention.). Regardless, It was a blast to develop and I learnt a lot from that project and will continue to experiment with implementing it into my current/future projects.
It would have been horrifically tricky if I had to rely on the WebSocket stuff or whatever there was before multiplayer.
So, from a non-business and more personal perspective: thank you adding Multiplayer, Ashley. I reckon it increased the value of C2 and it certainly makes a lot of people happy, even if they don't say it or even post on these forums.
With that said, I'd certainly be interested if there was to be another poll or something.
