View Full Version : Skirmish Modes

12-20-2011, 01:20 PM
Hello, me and my girlfriend just bought this game after watching the dev diaries and reading a little on it to make sure it is what I am looking for. It seemed like a Battle for Middle Earth or Command and Conquer game that had an alternate mode that included rpg elements like quests and whatnot.

In the About page of this site it says:
There are two main skirmish modes available in Dawn of Fantasy online and single-player gameplay: Lay Siege and Stronghold Defense. Each of these modes can be played as either single-player or multi-player team matches. These modes are cut down, fast-paced samples of MMORTS gameplay, meant to provide training ground for players to test out their MMORTS builds and strategies.

I was particularly interested in the line "Each of these modes can be played as either single-player or multi-player team matches." So far I have not found any way to play a multi player team match of lay siege or stronghold defense, which seem to be the only ways to play a non-persistant rts style game which is what I was looking for. I see no lobbies or host/join options anywhere, so was curious if someone could either help me figure out how to set up a multiplayer match that I can play with her, or explain how this is NOT false advertisement.

The ability to play skirmish mode in multiplayer matches has not been implemented yet. You can have multiplayer PvP games both sieging and defending player towns in Online Kingdom mode though.

When do you expect this to happen, as it says they "can be played" in multiplayer matches in your about page (which I suggest you change until you can do so)?

I don't pay for promises, I pay for products.

I dont want this to turn into another black and white 2 incident where they promised multiplayer but never delivered.

That was a question, and it's been five days
How long before all the games advertised features will be implemented in this game that I've been sold?

peeps are busy. Just gotta wait.....

alliance is being added in a few days/weeks.

Making an online empire only takes a day or two to finish too..

Good question tiger, right now the devs are holding the problems 505 games dumped on them when 505 walked away (they wrote the news release you mentioned). So the devs are attempting to make things accurate to the news releases 505 put out on the forum here but it's taking time (which no consumer wants to hear i know). FYI the game was released 3 months previous to what was desired (505 again). So without having to do post game support I think the game would be where or just about to the desired state. Just letting you know a lil' of what's gone down and say that the desired 6v6 matches should be coming after the new pathing system. Thanks

Im not interested in the online mode. I bought it for the multiplayer skirmishes that were promised bro. So it's not in the desired state for me.
As long as one feature is still missing, the person who bought the game for that feature is still being cheated out of his money.
