Ok,

This morning, i logged onto to eso2 and its rooted. It doesnt display any game rooms or chat room in the list, and i cant create my own. Whats going on...

Also,

I'm creating a muliplayer scenario which is turning out pretty good (its kind of like the hero-fest unit pumpout system).

I read that multiplayer scenarios dont work online or something, is this true. Also, if thats false and you can play multiplaer scenarios online, then why hasn't anyone else made any yet?

ESO sometimes lags out, that's why. It's because of Christmas, there are lots of people playing their new game constantly, it will get better once ES's new servers arrive and people start playing less.

You can play custom maps online, however they are not rated, so they're not recorded in your stats (ie. no experience, not counted in your win percentage).

You can only play custom random maps, not custom scenarios, unfortunately. There are already several custom random maps out and hopefully there will be a blood map coming soon but I don't know if/when multiplayer scenarios will be supported.

oh my god, the highlight of aoe2 was multiplayer scenarios, why have they scrapped them from aoe3?

This is the most stupid thing by far...

Does anyone know the reason why this is?

oh, and the map im making is kind of like a blood map. More lik hero-fest in the way units pump out, but its small scale to reduce lag and stuff. I'm happy with it so far... I really want to play with others online seeing versing the computer isn't very fun when they just sit there and you have to run around trying to get a computer fight another computer...

Time constraints.

Trade off between working on the MP aspect of the game, balance, etc vs implementing multiplayer support for scenarios. ES has said they will be including support for MP scenarios in a future patch.

Also, please use the edit button from now onwards and don't double post.

So, let me get this straight. Can we play blood maps or not?

You can play random maps. (ie. Winter Wonder land.)

You can't play scenarios. (ie. Anything you make with the scenario editor)


You could play a 'blood map' if it was made as a random map, rather than a scenario.

Anyway, screw blood maps, I want to see a 'One Hole Jotenhiem' (sp?). They pwned .

How do you make custom random maps? With the scenario editor or with something else?
