Default Multiplayer Fridays


After our recent Tanksgiving day, you demonstrated that there’s an appetite for co-ordinated multiplayer events so that you can find more opponents for asynchronous games of Ogre. That’s why we’re going to make every Friday a multiplayer day!

There are six key times on a Friday to be aware of, they are:

UK - 5PM, 7PM, 9PM, 11PM, 1AM, 3AM
Eastern - 12PM, 2PM, 4PM, 6PM, 8PM, 10PM
Pacific - 09AM, 11AM, 1PM, 3PM, 5PM, 7PM

To get involved, you need to be online and under the Ranked Matchmaking multiplayer tab at one or more of those times, then hit Play to search for an opponent.

Due to the way our system is structured, you only need to be online to matchmake with an opponent. Once a game is in progress you can safely log off, play another element of the game, or even exit the game entirely, and leave it for up to 24 hours before you need to return and take an action (or concede the match). You’ll also receive a notification within Steam when your opponent finishes their actions.

You can also participate in multiple games at once - simply repeat the steps above. To see your active games, go to the Multiplayer screen, and select 'Active Games'. You should see 'Ranked' and 'Custom' tabs, where each type of game is held.

As always, if you want even more Ogre multiplayer outside of these times, join the Auroch Digital Fans Steam Group and check the Members tab to see when other Ogre players are online, and you can add your details to the Multiplayer Meeting Post too.

Important note! We’re going to run these “official” Friday sessions for a trial period up until (and including) 26th January 2018 with reminders on our social media, and we have something very special planned for the end of the year with this too. But whether it continues in an officially organised capacity past that date is entirely down to whether there’s continued interest.

If you feel like this is something you’d like to see more of, please help us spread the word, encourage your friends to get involved, and if you have feedback on how it’s being run then let me know via as I’m keen for this to be a collaborative effort between our studio and yourselves.

Important note #2! There will be a small hotfix to address a Scenario Creator-related issue tomorrow ahead of the event, just so you're aware.
