No screen rotation? Seriously? How did this simple item not get implemented? My case holds my iPad one way on the table, and HoN is most inconveniently upside down right now.

And no, standing on my head isn't a good long term option, and neither is getting a different case/removing it from the case etc. when this is the only app I have that doesn't rotate properly.

Yeah, this needs to be fixed. The app launches upside-down and is immune to device rotation. Please fix, devs. :)

Hi guys. Sorry about the delay, time differences and whatnot.
So I'm assuming the Rogue Mode, if the same as the Steam version, features NO randomization of maps or units setup?
No, it doesn't, in either German or Axis campaigns.
How many players asynchronous?
Two, I do believe.
Is it true the game lacks proper iOS notifications in async multiplayer?
It's a HUGE bummer for me and a big oversight on mobile imho.
That's what ruined the new Battle of the Bulge too (among the other things).
I got email notifications, but wasn't sure if proper iOS notifications would be part of the test build or not. But yeah, hopefully it can be patched in.

I didn't even think to check that, Harv. Just used to playing on the phone and Mini in my lap, not noticing the orientation lock. Sorry. Sure it can be patched in.

Not a problem - it's important we're upfront about this. I keep forgetting to add it in though, past couple of times I've had to go back 5 mins after publishing and add it in >.<

AFAIK it comes with the 'US Rangers' DLC included in the main game, so that content should already be in there. Someone who knows what's in that DLC though will need to confirm - no other DLCs are currently available for the iOS version, however in our interview the devs mentioned which DLCs should be coming next, and they should be coming "soon".

So, would anyone please explain what "rogue" mode is?

It's not. I just tried a skirmish game and the Ranger items were tagged with a green "DLC" ribbon and the game sent me to the in app store to look over/buy the Ranger pack. Of course, the in app store just says "connecting to app store" and never does. So, some confirmation as to whether Rangers should indeed be included or if not, why the IAP isn't working would be great.
