Hi,

Just started playing DOW2 and really enjyting it - especially the similarities to COH. Have received a couple of whoopings so far but still having plenty of fun.

It seems to take a long time to find a game (especially 2 v 2, 3 v 3). Is this because I'm playing vanilla DOW2?

Anyway, hope to see you all online at some point.

welcome to the community, and yeah, most of the player base is on retribution, which doesn't use gfwl, it uses steam for matchmaking, and vanilla/cr arent supported with patches etc anymore, so if you can switch to retri i would advise it

Ah, thanks for the advice. I've just installed retribution and about to play my first online game.

Funny you should mention the l2p group - I followed the link from Tsototar's Steam account page (from the link below the avatar on here!). I've already asked a couple of questions and had some great help.

Someone even translated something from German to English for me!

I definitely prefer the Retribution MP interface and the extra content is nice.
