    Default Multiplayer: ROME 2

    I am a huge fan of playing multiplayer. I just don't know what it is about me loving the multiplayer so much, but I treat Total war games like a big live game of chess which it essentially is, and the feeling I get from outsmarting my opponent and concocting a plan which ends up being a winner, gives me a big sense of accomplishment. Mopping up the leftovers of your opponents army while chanting: "I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Gaius Caligula, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God. " Is how I get off...joke?

    So as you can imagine, I am looking forward to the Multiplayer announcement, and I think they may have something magical up their sleeve. It's OK for you SP fans, you have loads of information, but, for me, who is a multiplayer fan...all I can do is imagine.

    So please give me you opinions on what you would like to see in the multilayer. I would also like to hear if you play multiplayer as a preference.

    Bring back the Avatar conquest. But I wonder how CA will implement the avatar conquest if added. Because in S2 in only one culture. But in Rome 2 there will be more than one culture. So when we create our own avatar maybe we must select specific culture or one avatar for every cultures?. Can't wait to see it myself.

    I think an avatar system is good, as in creating your own general. But the unlocking of units or other stuff is very, very bad. Since it gives veteran players a huge edge over new ones.

    And I haven't even started on DLC units...

    Me and my friends look forward to the multiplayer campaign, hope the rumours are true that you play the campaign with 4 players.

    『Multiplayer campaign is practically confirmed for two player if you believe the steam page. That said, I think that the logical next step would be to take a Stronghold Kingdoms approach to online ranked battles, but who knows, the people at CA are very smart and they may have already planned an even better mode than what I can think of as the logical next step.』

    The system of levelling up your troops gave many players an unfair advantage, in my opinion, and I hope that they would leave that out in favour of retainers and other effects. Fighting a team full of level 9 katana samurai, who seemed to beat level 8 katana cavalry in combat with ease, was disappointing. They seemed to have no weakness, whereas usually katana samurai would have lost by a large margin if katana cavalry fought them. If the levelling up system worked as in single player, or if it were not existent at all, then the multiplayer would be more balanced.

    The fact that higher level troops cost more did not balance out the fact that they were horribly overpowered.

    You mean 4 player FREE mpc. Where you can declare / befriend other players at will and have the usual faction's victory conditions.

    It is terrible when the loss of the home city to the enemy player leads to a premature ending of the campaign. Carthage was raided and plundered and finally burnt 3 times, Rome also got its share off during history.

    It would be so easy to get that option in to just have the usual victory conditions in, or a button that asks the victor whether you want to continue or not. You'll see awesome campaigns with Carthage being pushed out of North Africa into Alexandria to establish a new base there, or a Rome that is lost and pillaged but its Legions march into Italy from Gaul and Greece to reclaim what is theirs.
