As the downloadable client doesn't even work on many Windows installs, I'm not confident that Parallels will handle it.
    Agree re time sclae but gets them online for now while find an alternative. And does work, got 2 in guild using it.

    From what I see it is an annual subscription, the monthly figure is what it costs per month

    There should be some free alternatives to Parallels (virtualbox?), you can also run windows 10 without a license for quite a long time (with restrictions, but those don't matter if you only plan to use it for settlers online).

    Adobe air is meant to be cross platform, the windows exe file is just the way the files have been packaged together, it should be really easy for a mac/linux client to be packaged in the same way.

    Yup, totally agree. They should have at least left open the browser option until the death of Flash.

    That will only allow the VM. You then have to download a Windows OS.

    Disgusted, why not release the Mac download asit is now and let us test it for you. If it crashes now and again, we can probably live with that. Come on guys get your act together.

    Thumbs down Very disappointed

    I am very disappointed that us Mac users will not be able to play, I was looking forward to playing the Christmas event, I have put a lot of time and money into this game and think that we have been let down.
