I'm an avid fan of some of the oldest Total War titles: Shogun, Medieval, and Medieval II. I try to play Medieval II online (I have the vanilla version) but it's very difficult to find open games and then roughly 50% of the time the battle never finishes because someone has connection problems. Frustrating to say the least.
I finally got a new gaming computer and want to find a newer Total War title to play. Personal choice, but I don't really like fantasy based titles, so Warhammer doesn't do anything for me.
What is my best bet? Does Attila or Rome II have enough of a community to find public games online? More than Medieval II at least? And did they finally fix the annoying "connection problem" that would pause the game in Medieval II?
