I just checked out the new patch in a multi player game. It seems to be up to speed, although only played until August. I still have not tested this in the 4 player mode-need a few other players.
Anyway, I would like to fire up a game next weekend-we could try 4 players to see if it works. If it does-then we can proceed with that. We can have a couple of practice runs to give everyone a better idea of how the army by army activation thing works online. Then we can start a real game. I would like to do an aar with the MP game.
It is my impressions that playing with 4 humans would make the game easier and faster in the army by army mode. If you only have a nation or two to look after, you should become quite familiar with what needs to be done and who is where. With two player you could be in charge of handling 4 separate nations by yourself. In A by A mode, this can be a chore-as you need to keep track of everything. In MP games, you can get stuck because you have to search around for an army needing orders. 1 nation-easy, 2 or more and it can get complicated.
Anyway, I'm looking for interested members. If you are interested, force yourself to play A by A in single play to get the hang of it.
It might even be a good idea for players to post here as to what nation they want to play in MP mode. You can be completely familiar with France, but if you are going to play Russia, you will be facing a new animal. With that in mind, how about interested players post in this thread and include your 1st and second choice of nation.
It will be glorious. The first few turns may be rough, but after that you will have this thing figured out. Then try to survive.
BTW, I offer to host the game.
