    Default Multiplayer fix by C.A. ( Lobbies are now visible)

    Multiplayer lobbies can now be seen by opting in to Beta update in the properties tag on steam, it is jolly welcome if you ask me, thank you LestaT for pointing that out.

    Default Re: Campaign Multiplayer lobby is still Blank!

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the lack of campaign and battle multi-play lobbies are missing since launch, I have checked the official forums and so far not a word from C.A.

    I can play ranked battles but.....

    Default Re: Can anyone tell me if Campaign & Multiplayer is working for them please?

    179 views and nobody has given an answer, this seems to be a problem for many people according to the official forums, but so far they havent said anything about it?

    I don't think there is an answer... apart from you're right, it seems to be a problem and there isn't an official statement. I've seen some people saying you can join a game if invited by a Steam friend.


    (& I can confirm that LAN campaign multiplayer is working just fine, but that's probably not helpful )

    Thanks Mak, I'm very surprised that hardly anyone mentioned it on TWC?

    Default Re: Strange that hardly anyone has mentioned the "broken" multiplayer game on TWC?

    Is it because like me, everyone is just happy the game runs out of the box, the brilliant campaign map, the awesome graphics and gameplay, that nobody is bothered that multiplayer game lobbies are missing, this means in actual fact, the game is for intents and purposes "broken" from day 1?
    C.A. are keeping quiet about it?

    ....ready for crucifixion.

    Well I have played multiplayer, I cant say I'm any kind of expert though, that isnt the point, people are asking about it on the official forum ( me too) and on steam, I havent seen any acknowledgement from C.A. (someone please prove me wrong)
    Great campaign map,single player, mechanics and graphics
    To me this indicates an unfinished game, par for the course in my opinion... probably have to pay for multiplayer DLC (sarcasm mode off )

    If multiplayer works via LAN (and it definitely does) - and works via invite from Steam - then it can't be the game that's broken, but something missing from the Steam lobby system... ??


    (and I definitely bought the second copy for our household purely for the multiplayer option - I'd probably not buy TW games ever except to mod and/or for some sort of multiplayer option)

    This. 95% of TW players never touch MP elements of the game.

    I've never done a MP battle or MP campaign since i've been playing TW games starting all the way back in 2004.

    I had good memories of Avatar Conquest back in Shogun2, the balance is goodish(since everyone has the same unit) and it is before I discovered mods.
    I cannot imagine playing 3K multiplayer at all, with the romance mode comes absurdly overtuned heroes and questionably balanced units of vanilla.

    Might gave it a second look if ranked has records.

    I am disappointed really, I finally want to get into multiplayer battles and find the lobbies empty? I wonder what our "hotseat" community will think?
    Ah well heres me all dressed up and nowhere to go......

    It would seem my "campaign" is gaining momentum? Official Forum

    Although no reply from C.A. as of yet,as to why lobbies are missing, which is pretty bad form I would say!

    I have a theory that it has something to do with concerns of security about China?

    I don't have this game yet, waiting, with hope, for summer sales, but since Rome, the first one, I never, ever, played a online battle, for me total war games are single player games. In the opposite side, I never played a Company of heroes 2 campaign. Conclusions, total war games are very moddables, people install different mods and barley have the same version,and they mainly like campaings, so, they don't care about online battles.

    Started a co-op campaign with a Steam friend before the last update, so at least that was working.
