Why is Forge online only?

I have been kicked from the servers at least 6 times in only a few hours. It makes me wonder why Forge is online only. Why must I be connected to the servers n the first place? Has 343i commented on this?

Good question…

Keep your fingers crossed:

Fingers crossed. I have lost all motivation to forge. 2 steps forward one step back. Very frustrated!!! Forging was always a relaxing experience. Not today.

Its online only because you have acess to the cloud when forgeing. This is what allows us to build a base and copy paste it across the map. Now what i have a complaint about is lack of forge ai. By all means this is possible now.
