Galactic Conquest in Multiplayer? (online?)

Just wondering if this mode is available for mutliplayer, as I couldn't seem to find it when I was setting up a server.

Reading through some of the Q&As from before release, a multiplayer galactic conquest seemed alluded to.

I don't think there is. I know you can in splitscreen, but not multiplayer.

Darn. That would've been fun, even though I can see the complications with an online play VS a split-screen. Maybe a patch or mod down the road...

No way would Galactic Conquest work online.

I thought I read somewhere that they were making galactic conquest playable online, but I guess they never got around to it. Shame I think it could have been fun, if done correctly.


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

a game of gala conquest takes like 3 hours, no one (except some freaks) can play that long at once, my eyes would burn out.....
and besides who gets to call the shots? who decided which bonuses to buy? what units to buy? there would be a big TK fight, which would suck....
AND TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, GALA CONQUEST IS NOT IN MP, AND IF IT WAS, I WOULDN'T PLAY IT......

It might have problems with being publicly run or in the case of many players, but if it were LAN or a 1v1 direct connect I don't see how it would be a problem working out.

Still, there is oodles of other playable modes. I think I'll live without "GalaConk".

You have a vote on it; same with what planet you attack. But I'll guess that they're would be other problems to.

Hey I play whole Galactic Conquest games at once, sometimes even multiple.

well a simple solution to who gets to call the shots is that everyone takes a vote... not everyone would like the out come but it would be fair.

waaaaa jeeedddiii

Or you could have a predetermined "general" who makes all the strategic decisions, but other players can give him advice... voting could work to I guess.

I'd like to see a online vs. mode of GC, much more strategy would be involved

Hell yes it could work online. But the developers were too cheap to do it, just like last time.

I mean if you were saying there was some "technical reason" why it wouldn't work.
