Direct action or High treason ?
So I'm going to buy one of Act of war games. Which one do you suggest and why ?

High Treason is more an Addon.

Yes. I have the CD version as "Gold Edition" and "High Treason" needs "Act of War" Maingane

High Treason, on Steam, is a standalone addon. Meaning you don't need anything else to be able to play it.

Oh I see, but if I would like to play both campaigns I need to get both. Thanks for info.

HT but it standalone thing.
so far if you not care about campaign/SP - yo may go for HT. pro: naval battles and some new other units. flaw: SP missions is more decorateve/cheaper in HT(even "as tutorial/introduction to gameplay").
ideally - get both just for collection. some folks say that DA bit more W10-friendly but i saw not much practical difference(more depend of drivers(especially for GPU) and other software/hardware combinations and settings).

I'm now running windows 10, so compability is of huge importance. I had played a little bit of DA campaign (with pirated version), but now I'm going to buy it. How is the multiplayer player base ? dead or almost non-existent ?

since services for native/built in lobby(and after company dissloved)now defunct - there isn't any online in game, unless you use it to connect DIRECTLY or with things like Hamachi and alikes. ideally would be to create something like FAF(fans-made lobby)but it worth efforts/manpower, most players tend to avoid.

Hey, if you guys are still interested in playing multiplayer for this game we could make a steam group dedicated to having scheduled events (probably on weekends) using GameRanger. We just need to get 5-10 people who want to play and then we can set up a time for events.

Do you think we will ever find enough people ?

It will probably take some time, but it's worth a try.

First of all Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy Holidays!

Just an update on that group idea I had, there are currently 3 people (including me) interested in the idea. If anyone else is interested, just say so in a post here or in the Scheduled Online Sessions discussion I made, I'll leave a link to it below.

Well in the end, I bough both Direct Action and High Treason, because of the complete price.
