    Hi everyone I bought M:TW about 2 months ago. Unfortunately, I've been abit too busy; Christmas etc., to play it as much as I would like. I did fool around with it, starting campaigns,ending them; just to get a feel for the game. Now I'm in my first real campaign; Biz.,early. Just finished teaching the Egyptians a very harsh lesson. I'm getting the hang of the game. Online play has always interested me, but I've never tried it. I was wondering when did you try M:TW online for the first time? How many campaigns did you complete before you tried M:TW online? Thanks.

    I played my first online game only four days ago. i lost it. i played my second online game two days ago, and won it.

    I've played SP campaign since the game came out, and have won maybe three of those. Haven't played all the factions yet.

    Well i had the game for a month before i played single player cos i had no modem. then i got a 512k cable one and wooohooo my first ever mp game was mtw and would ya belive it i won my first game.

    since i discovered the stats page ive noticed its covered my first 30 games now without any tips etc i would say that 30 games is a noobish level so as a noob i won 50% of them.

    however if u want a tip read just a little more


    Always always always bring valour not armour or attack but valour, at least 2 and hopefully 4 3 is the average.

    seriously fighting ppl who have not brought valour is a walkover and although slightly funny it gets annoying.

    Make ur gen a merc calvary unit with 3 valour and keep him away from combat.

    do not expect archers to kill a lot of ppl.

    THE most important thing though is do not ever quit the battle without either a vry good reason or routing ur army first.

    MP is 20 times better than sp just read the manual to see how to join a game and ull avoid alot of flak.

    hope that helps

    I play online when time permits, which isn't often. My first MTW online battle was about 2 weeks after I got the game and the next battles were about 2 months later. I've managed to put together a 1 win, 12 loss record (approximate).

    Mith keeps asking to come on line so he can get some more easy wins.

    I tried Mp just 2 days after getting the game and I had only started my first campaign however what I learned from the two matches (that I lost) was very usefull and helped my delopment as a player both in SP and MP.

    Hoi Julius

    i played MP even before my first SP game. I highly recommend MP for the fact that you are playing other people rather than AI. It's a lot of fun not to mention all the fun, interesting people I've met online.

    Thumbs up

    I was trying to connect after I had the game for almost two months and completed two campaigns (1 total and one minor victory) but was unable due to some hardware problems. Will try again soon, maybe when I get another campaign done. I am not sure if my modem will be enough, but who knows.

    I think that experience is not a factor, if you know how to not get losses to bother you. I was playing AOE2 online constantly, yet was getting a lot of losses at the beginning. You learn as you go I guess…

    Do we have some games for newbies like AOE2 had?

    I played mutiplayer for the first time three days ago. After stuggling with gamespy and reentering my CDkey many times, I got into a game. I didn't do that bad concidering the bloody mess I made of my troop's position and my troops. I kept trying to pause the game and issue orders.

    The second game I was slaughtered. Baddly. My entire army ran 30 seconds into the game. I keep meaning to try mutiplayer again but I barely have time for just single player let alone mutiplayer.
