Ok, from the off, I much prefer playing against a live opponent, and in the main haven't struggled to get games in my area, but sometimes this just isn't possible. Many people have tried playing solo to try out a new unit, or rule or whatever, but some people are not lucky enough to live anywhere near other hobbyists, and it's those people that this is really about.

The question is this: Is the idea of coming up with a decent set of solo rules a good one, or is it unnecessary, as people can just control both sides without having to resort to a system to do it for them?
