Topic Subject:Questions about multiplayer-related stuff
posted 02-14-13 03:51 PM EDT (US)         
1) Why is there a special option to disallow Warchiefs factions, and why do people select this?

2) What does "op" mean in game names, such as "3v3 no op"? Do people consider certain factions overpowered?

3) What does "hm" and "nws" mean? Why do some games claim no rush for 55 minutes when the top limit is 40?

4) How am I supposed to level up to meet the level requirements of certain games when everyone keeps booting me for being too low a level?! ><

1) The Asian Dynasties does not require The Warcheifs. You can play online on TAD without TWC, but can only join or host games that don't allow Warchiefs civilizations.

2) In treaty, some factions are considered unbalanced. I know this includes French, but I do not play TR so I'm not sure if there are others.

3) Half map -- don't gather on the enemy's half of the map before treaty is over.

No warships -- no ships except fishing boats.

NR55 -- simply a gametype that is not necessarily actually part of the game, but a user-defined rule that players are expected to follow if the game was labeled as such.

4) I don't know. Play with people your level to get started.

They just play on TWC, and cannot join games except those hosted by others player TWC.

I've never heard that part of it.

1. Some people (like me) have TAD but not TWC. Disabling TWC content allows us to join your game!

2. OP=overpowered (France, Russia, Japan)

3. HM=Halfmap. You cannot build on the opponent's half or collect their resources until the treaty ends. NWS= No War Ships (fishing boat whale boom is permitted). NR55= 55 minute treaty. These are purely enforced by honour, there is nothing stopping you from breaking these rules.

4. That is a big problem with ESO. Chances are you won't get in games for a LONG time.

Another thing I meant to ask in the firsts post:

If you leave or are eliminated from an FFA game early, do you get the in-game 75% XP bonus when the game ends, even if you've logged off?
