No, we just wanted people to stop e-mailing us about it.

Haha as I expected! This answered my question in a edited post in drastic 2.1.6a thread.

But the way you put it might actually backfire (as seen in this thread): It really seems like a planned feature for the near future this way. Maybe changing the text to "Sorry, it is not possible to emulate multiplayer/wifi right now and due to technical reasons it might never be." or something alike would be more fitting.

The way it is now surely helps the rumours rather than back them down.

Yeah I already asked Lordus to change it a little ;p It's a difficult balancing act - on the one hand we don't want to make people think we're actively working on it and it's right around the corner. On the other hand, we don't want to leave them with nothing but a feeling of being tricked after pressing it.

Maybe add it in bold font to the play store description then as well? (I cant check it though, as my Play store is somehow set to German and that German description there is possibly outdated)

This is what it says now:
NOTE: WiFi/multiplayer emulation is not supported at this time.
Only the "NOTE" part is bolded. You are right, it's not in the German version, need to update that.

Well that seems fair enough :mrgreen:

Really though, no matter what you will do, at the end of the day there will always be some complaint from some teenage kid who hasn't bothered to ready any documentation whatsoever. The DAU (dumbest assumable user) is impossible to reach in the vast Android-verse.
