DLCs and Multiplayer

Post by canuckgamer »

The only DLC that indicates more than one player is U.S. Marines which is 1-4. Just to confirm, that is the only DLC where there is multiplayer, is that correct? Thanks.

What about Allies Victorious. It doesn't even mention the number of players but indicates "Traditional PBEM". U.S. Marines displays Traditional PBEM as well.
I am only interested in a DLC where it can be played multiplayer.

DLCs are single player only. I think sometimes a multiplayer scenario or two are published along with the DLC.

This is the greatest drawback for OOB IMO. AI has made strides but there is still nothing like going up against one of the top-ranked humanoids either 1:1 or 2:2. Alas almost all the PBEM scenarios are designed by other players (Erik's scenarios are among the best!)

Shard's tournament scenarios are quite good, but we need more...

I think that the lack of sandbox games (single and multi-player) are the greatest drawback. Give me a computer generated, random map after I have chosen my units and let the battle commence. There is a limited need for land based objectives and just use unit losses.
