    Default Getting Started

    Fertile ground for discussion here.

    I'm not much on MP play tbh, but I can see where this would be a good area for Creative Assembly to break new ground. They've struggle some, imo, on the MP side, especially with the Shogun 2 stuff. The F2P MP has potential for them if they can get it right.

    If they can get it right then I would very seriously reconsider MP play.

    Anything that will help to get the MP community back together as it used to be will be more than welcome IMO.

    When playing MP, you can play a single player or multiplayer game. If you'd like to play with other people, survival is the default Mine craft, with life points and hunger, creative mode allows you to fly and place an infinite amount of blocks, and adventure mode is similar to survival, but players cannot place or destroy blocks

    Free to play. Usually there is some scheme to get money (skins, special abilities/items, etc), but basic play is free to all. Not a bad way to get lots of people playing, to "set the hook".

    Ok thanks.

    I followed the link in the other thread and what I gathered at a glance was that you get to lead 3 Units as part of a larger army in a big MP battle (with some 20 Players in a game).

    Not a bad idea - especially for someone like me who was alread callanged controlling an army of 15 Units, let alone 20 in the later Releases.
    I might give it a try when it comes out.

    I can't remember when I was less enthusiastic about a release.
    Occasionally, we have to break our own rules and go against our principles in order to save those principles. Certain situations warrant that.

    Been playing stronghold kingdoms a lot recently, good fun.

    Like - the political geography resulting from the house/faction system works really well
    Dislike - the complete lack of physical geography is very disappointing, no such thing as a strategic point

    Give me barriers, chokepoints, and logistics and I will be happy.

    I got a key to closed alpha, but when I try to join the game it crashes for no reason :/ Will have to reinstall my sytem anyway, maybe it will fix the problem.
