The hero engine does not support mac. Regardless of any other reasons. This is the most basic reason it does not exist.

I don´t play this beautiful game with bootcamp or parallel desktop! I am really angry about the situation, why they don´t offer the people who play this game with mac client! I spend a lot of time in this game and i play it since release! They promise us, that they want to bring it for us! But nothing! i am said about the situation, because they can do it, but they don´t.

No, Apples star has reached it's peak, with Jobs gone there is no innovation, the big announcements are not big at all.

Plus people are starting to wake up and realize what a closed system it really is.

It would be crazy to invest millions in a new client.

Yes, I support anything that makes players happy to play games the way they prefer.

Some of these comments are crazy. What impact would a Mac client have on you Apple doomsayers? How would it impact your game at all? I've never understood this Mac vs Windows, iPhone vs Android etc. debate.

The impact it would have is a lot of developer hours burned to produce ZERO new content and features, and all to support a platform that's already workable if the player wants to make it work.

Stated more exactly, burning a ton of developer hours for a net zero benefit is not good for the game.

There are more Xbox gamers than Mac gamers. So, they should port the game to Xbox1, PS4, and Wii U before they do a Mac version. Followed by an Android version.
