I was thinking in a few days I might have a few friends over, hook all of our comptuers up to the big-screen, split screen it 4 ways, and play some online Armada II with all of us on the same team. This would be pretty flipping sweet to do, but how many people play Armada II online now? Am I guaranteed to be able to find a game? Also, what portion of the online players are using the unpatched version, version 1.1, Concept Future, Borg Incursion... etc? We usually install the 1.1 patch, then install CF ontop of that (with the sounds pack), and I think its really fun. So to sum it all up, am I guaranteed to be able to find a game... and if so, what version of the game is most widely played? If you can manage, some exact figures of how many people play online would be nice. Thanks for the advice.
couldnt tell you, but if you find one let me know, I need someone (or four) to test my metal against ...
We should set up a time to play. We could do some 3 on 1, or you could have some AI bots on your team... either would be fine. What do you you usually play? We do Concept Future with unlimited recources and max officers, but anything is fine with us. Let me know if you want to set up a time to play.
I like a challange so three on one sounds fun, All trek is fun, so I give every race a shot .... :smokin:
Well, one of my friends is completely untouchable with unlimited recources.... he will have hundreds of ships in your base in the first 5 minutes. So if you're looking for a fair challenge, we should do some Concept Future with max officers and limited recources... and you might want atleast one AI on your team. So, do you have broadband? Also, are you in school now, or do you have any other time restraints? We can set up a time to play in the next few weeks... and if you have any Armada II playing friends, feel free to have them over and have some real players on your team.
Not at school, I left 8 years ago, the time constraints I have are my job, Iam a manager, so I dont get a lot of free time, I will check my rota over the next few weeks and see what I can do, can I just ask a few questions - 1) which country are you in (this could cause time problems) ? 2) are the only MODs being used Concept future ? 3) do you all have the 1.1 patch. 4) How much do you want your butt kicking ???? I will sort out a team from my end - assimilation would be nice compared to whats coming ............... :smokin: :cool: :naughty: :moon: :beer:
30th October 2004
1. all online players use stock a2 1.1 patched, unless they have friends playing a mod ;) 2. no one uses 1.0 as its not the latest offical. 3. there is almost always a game in there(4-9 actually) and atleast 20 players :p 4. there are ainly english speaking people, and some germans 5. I can meat up with you and teach you how to play online? As its much different then vs AIs.
I know all that I was just checking what setup carl and his friends have, so we all start on level playing field, different languages are not a problem, its the different time zones that are
I live in the United States. It says los estados unidos... for some reason I just decided to make my location in spanish, but english is my primary language. What we do (in order) is first install the 1.1 patch, then install concept future full, then install the concept future sounds pack. Most of the time we play with unlimited recources and max officers. When we do this, by the time someone attacks, they usually attack with well over 200 of the strongest ship we can make. It's very cheap that way, and the balance of power can shift very quickly... so we have no problem changing the unlimited recources if you would like. Right now (in our time zone) it is 5:07PM on August 2nd. We don't start school again until August 17th, so were free all day of every day until the 17th... so just let me know what a good time for you is. I have never played anyone (especially 3 vs 3) overseas, so does anyone with some experience know how bad the lag is? I have a 5mbps cable connection over here, so usually its not to bad. Let me know when a good time is, and if that game type is good with you.
Right I will see If I can round a team up then .......
