    East vs West MP

    Hello! I'm wondering how the multiplayer will work in EvW. Will it be the same as HOI3 or will it use a similiar system as EUIV? Answers from devs are very appreciated

    it is 30 player, although I don't think it has steam support yet.
    Multiplayer is probably being worked on as we speak as the other features have to be decided upon and implemented before they can realy start working on it

    Multiplayer is the best way to play these games so please test it enough to make it work fully.

    If only it would have the multiplayer system from EUIV... That would make me one happy man.

    I think someone mentioned a couple months back that it won't be fully integrated into Steam, which is a disappointment. So the best we can hope for is that they have a hot-join feature otherwise MP will be crap like HOI3.

    Sadly, it is looking very likely that MP will be cut from the game.

    I completely agree with you. I'm not too happy about the news either. I'm still hoping balor is being sarcastic although I'm pretty sure he's not.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see how this unfolds. I find it interesting that no BL dev has said this or even hinted at it. This is simply not the kind of information that is just dropped in thread. While I doubt he's being sarcatic I do doubt if he is accurate. After all BL not PI id the developer. So maybe some miscommunications?

    And all the home pages for the game still has this:
    ■Multiplayer: Battle against your friends in multiplayer for up to 32 players and don't miss the chance to nuke your friends into oblivion


    Let's wait and see what happens to and int his thread. Gonna be interesting.

    Uhh some dev already stated they were doing multiplayer games, and if its not i. The game then I wont even buy the game since Playing it without a buddy is so boring and not even worth my time.

    On top of that everyone knows that a good multiplayer makes people decide to actually buy the game and not get it for free through other means.

    Wow, that's quite a revelation. I guess that the team is worried that the SP will be half-baked if MP is implemented.

    I have been playing Hoi3 MP very regularly. Besides a few issues there and here (which even EU4 has and bit worse), it is no where crap as people say it is.

    Or maybe Johan thinks they can't fix the crappy MP that came with HOI3.

    i domt have any problems with HOI multiplayer, thenagain I only play it with 1 friend at a time.

    I would guess sync problems due to added features. They are damn hard to find and fix.

    Can we know the reason why that might happen?
