How will Multiplayer be handled?

I hope it won't be the zone like in AOK. If it is im gonna throw myself out the window. What I dont understand is why they cant make it an in-game interface which is so much better! I don't even play AOK multiplayer because it drives me nuts!

Rule 2: If you disagree with me see rule #1

Well, I've ranted about this before, and I know how everyone loves my long, irate diatribes so I'll keep this short

I hope that if it is on the zone, they put in a record keeping system like the one on b.net with SC. Even somehting as little as that would make it infinetly easier to find a suitable opponent. Thus much improving everyone's gaming experience.

yes, battlenet was pretty dang cool if you ask me. however, i don't think they'll do their own multiplayer server system b/c they've never done it before and LEC games with multiplayer capability are on the zone.

If your really bad, then you'll be able to find other really bad people and have a decent match with them. The more yyou play the better you'll get. Right now, I'm horrible at AOK, and whenever I try to get a game going I get annhiallated by a vetren player. If you can't play anyone around the same skill level as yourself, its difficult to improve your game. Having a simple win/loss record will rectify all of this.

What about the other lucasarts games? What sevice do they use? What does Force Commander use? Its probably the same as that.

If you really suck and cant find anyone else to play they have a skirmish mode where you could say, put yourself up against 1 computer and type in cheat codes! Then you would finally win!

one word: "wormnet"

Anyways, the zone would be fine i guess, but i would really like to see a wormnet type thing.

most if not all LA games are hosted by the zone, so I say the Zone will be hosting GB as well.

MSN Gaming Zone is ok even if it does crash often and the zone friends mess up. Mostly cause like several 100,000+ people use it.

I hope

I hope they have the same multiplayer system as counterstrike,although unlikely I think that is the best multiplayer system oout there much better than Aok's system
