I love this game and I’m really impressed with the recent updates, however I have been consistently upset by the game downloading patches and using my mobile data without me being able to do much about it.
Edit: To be clear, I’m only referring to the in-game patches etc. Not the updates from the store.
In the better areas of the world, I’m sure enough people are on Wi-Fi or have unlimited data plans where they don’t need to worry about this, but I’m in South Africa where data is still very expensive and Wi-Fi is a luxury that not everyone is able to use.
I have no problem with the game downloading updates and I don’t even mind if it does so on my mobile data. But I want to be able to say no if I can’t do it right now.
Please add a simple confirmation to the game before it starts downloading anything. If this means that a player cannot play until they update, that’s fine.
(An amazing way to handle this would be an offline mode that just allows the player to just view their collected creatures list and use AR mode or something until they update. This could also just be a menu option somewhere in the game for future use with the ability to go online as desired.)
