Direct MP?

Post by cyrano » Mon May 28, 2018 4:34 pm

Rather than find my old topic and necro it, I thought to keep it simple and inquire:

Is direct MP still planned and when might it be expected?

Thanks for what I now regard as the best game of this generation.

Best,

Jim

It is still on the wishlist, but it has a lot of UX work around it and we are still trying to make sure we get it right :)

Any hints as to what parameters you plan on using such as time limits per turn or troop/map restrictions?

I don't imagine we would have any limitations, it would be the game as is now, but you would remain in the battle as the enemy moved their troops.

All armies and all size/type maps ? Sounds great!!

No turn limit may be problematic.

I suppose you could always just quit the game if your opponent got antsy and stepped out to get a sandwich during the game.
Still. a turn time limit may be what's needed to keep everyone in their seats.
I have a bad feeling you'll get everyone's opinion AFTER you release it.

It is a given that whatever we release some people will find it inconceivable.
