Default Thanksgiving Multiplayer Event

Hello!

Jake here and it’s time to talk multiplayer!

If you’re an avid player of Ogre and are looking for new multiplayer opponents to take on, then I hope you’ll join the rest of the community online this Thanksgiving (Thursday 23rd November). We're looking to organise a total of six play sessions at the following times:

UK Time - 3PM, 5PM, 7PM, 9PM, 11PM, 1AM
EST - 10AM, 12PM, 2PM, 4PM, 6PM, 8PM
PST - 07AM, 09AM, 11AM, 1PM, 3PM, 5PM

Be in-game under the Ranked Matchmaking multiplayer tab, then hit Play to search for an opponent.

While you do need to be online to matchmake with an opponent, once a game is in progress you can safely log off, play single player or other multiplayer games, and make custom scenarios. In fact you can exit the game entirely and leave it for up to 24 hours before returning and taking your turn. You’ll also receive a notification within Steam whenever your opponent finishes all their actions - perfect if your opponent is halfway across the world.

Pro tip: you can participate in multiple games at once. Simply repeat the procedure to enter a Ranked or Custom Game. To see your active games, just go to the Multiplayer screen, and select 'Active Games'. You should see 'Ranked' and 'Custom' tabs, where each type of game is held.

This first multiplayer session we’re organising is a bit of an experiment, but we’re hoping to make this a regular event if it proves popular, so tell your friends, tell your family, tell your cat... basically tell anyone who might be interested to come join us on Thursday 23rd November at the times above for some Ogre multiplayer action!

And if you can’t wait for Thursday 23rd November, in the meantime you can join the Auroch Digital Fans Steam group, and enter your details on the Multiplayer Meeting Post and start adding the other players to your Steam Friends List - they’re a fine bunch of folk who are regular Ogre players looking for more opponents.

See you on the battlefield!

Between this and an MST3K marathon, could be the best Turkey-day ever.

Given my cooking skills, the family will probably be happy to let me go play.

Hmmm.... I don't think I'll be telling my cat about this. She is already a BOSS at destroying any opponent's army she sees. Who knows what'll happen if she sees this. It might end up being destruction on a scale mankind has never seen. :-D

We'd ask that anyone involved in these sessions removes themselves from the beta beforehand - there will be an update ahead of the event :)

Thanks a lot!

So . . . does everybody get matched against Bounder? This is my third or fourth online match and I always get him.

Hah. Let's just say he's been actively trying to get games. ;-)

I am finally done with Turkey Day activities, and I am guessing that I missed it. :(
