For a Better Multiplayer in TotalWar: Rome 2
We buy Total War games for recreational purposes.
This is how we see Shogun 2 and worring about direction of ROME 2 that may go:
The game from TOTAL WAR is now TOTAL FARMING and TOTAL BOOSTING. New players do not have a chance to play it fair with others that have been playing long enough to farm units and test/exploit units stats discrepancies.
There is no fun on this level of units stats manipulation : RETAINERS magic spells, DOJOS that favors always randomly the player of the map that is closer , UNITS SKILLS, UNITS SPECIALTY, GENERAL MAGIC SPELLS , CLAN SPECIALTY. Small unit scale acts differently than large units size of the same type .
3. AVATAR CUSTOMIZATION CONCEPT IN THE WRONG DIRECTION
Make upgrades as AESTHETICS OPTIONS with only few skill upgrades starting by upgrading the classical mode.
4. MAPS TOO SMALL
They are nice but too small. it wasnt possible to play 3v3 or 4v4 while using good strategies. we need more multiplayer maps including syrian flats that effect stamina and fatigue or again the possibility to use TeD to make our own. perhaps even larger than 4v4.
5. MATCHMADE IS A TOTAL FAILURE
The ranking system is unfair; allowing for cav spam,redline camping and drophacking. S2 scoring players skill calculation lacks common sense. Add classical battles on more fair mm system
6. GLOBAL CHAT LOBBY FOR ROME 2
We want to return back to the great sucess of Rome 1 MTW2 global lobbies.

7. As ROME 1 bring back FFA (free for all), custom funds, alternative attack as well
We, the community of TW games players , customers, and members of this forum do promise we will express our voice, along with the community of the TW forums, and we will help in any positive way we can to help CA work to improve the neglected Multiplayer side of this great game.
After all it is a historical strategy game.
