New to MP

Post by Grunthex » Fri Jun 17, 2011 1:14 am

So, anyone want to talk a MP newbie through this? Howabouts do I get started?

I browsed the forums a bit, installed Xfire, applied to join the sots community there. What now? I figure I'm somewhere between a Normal and a hard AI (based on the fact that I play 8-player games, and find Normal AIs too easy, and Hard AIs... scary), but I have no MP experience.

More info: I have ANY 1.8.0, and a fairly free schedule between oh, noon and 5 AM or so, pacific time.

Start up the game, browse the games currently available online.

If you see any Forumite regulars playing a game, jump on in.
They usually politely let you know if you have jumped into a spot reserved for a latecomer / early departure.

Alternatively, start up a game and wait for players to arrive...
If no one else shows up, you still get to play a game of SotS... ;)

If you want to get into the regular chatroom, peg someone you've seen on the forums who is online and in XFire at the moment, and ask for an invite to the chatroom.
( look in the SotS clan listing :) )

You'll probably notice the games play a little differently than single player...
