Adding in an Extra Tier

After thinking about making clients to access the game and the fact that it is probably easier to create a generator tool on a desktop client (Thinking Windows 8 here); I thought it would probably be best to create an Web API web role now rather than later. The website after all is basically a Client as well.
So new way of thinking. All clients including the website don’t know anything about Entity Framework or Azure Service bus. All they need to know about is how to access the API. Having this as an extra Tier will also allow easier scaling in future.
Looks like I’ll be hitting the Pluralsight ASP.NET Web API course this weekend.
