Hello Gents,

A while back I enquired about CCMT & WW2 mods - and CCMT's ability to have more than 2 Players over LAN.
Having a WW2 game such as this that supports more than 2 players would qualify this as an 'insta-buy' for myself and others.

So to the devs - is this going to support more than 2 players in multiplayer as CCMT did?

This is not going to make it into Panthers in the Fog, no.  Multi-player will still be 1 on 1.

We are discussing how to do multi-player for the subsequent release, but I don't really have anything concrete to say about that quite yet.

How will be the multiplayer? Will there be something like battlefield academy one or we must keep playing in Gameranger?

Thanks

Multi-player in Close Combat requires a direct internet connection, and Panthers in the Fog will be the same.  It will have a new lobby system similiar to Battlefield Acadmey, but Panthers in the Fog won't have BA's play-by-email system, if that's what you're asking.  And assuming Game Ranger support, you should be able to use Game Ranger to connect with opponents too.

Sorry if I haven´t explain well. Yes, I know multiplayer CC is not PBEM, I´ve playing it since 2000. I was just asking if it will have a lobby system or we have to meet other players via Game Ranger, Game Spy ,...

I enjoy we can get a new lobby.

Thanks again.
