do I need the expansion to play online?

Post by count_vlad » 15 Jan 2019, 06:13

just found my old EE2 disk, I was going to install the update and start playing but I was wondering do I need the expansion to play online? will I just see most games hosted requiring it?

Also on a side note, I have my CD keys for EE1 but lost the CD..........should I try to download it somewhere?

Thanks,
-C.V.

Hi.
Unofficial Patch 1.5 always contains changes for both: vanilla version and for the expansion pack. It means that buying the expansion pack is not required to use all UP1.5 features. It includes the Multiplayer Lobby. From what I know, there are more active EE2 (non-expansion) players than AOS (The Art of Supremacy expansion) players. Therefore, even if you bought AOS, you probably would switch to the normal EE2 in order to play with active players. However, it doesn't mean that the expansion pack is bad. It's actually pretty much the same + new civilizations, heroes system. Just not all players bought the expansion pack in the past, so the vanilla's version community got much "stronger" with activity. The "Gold Edition" of Empire Earth II was available for ~2$ on Gog Christmas Promo. Maybe it's worth to wait for some new event and then get it.

Unfortunately I don't know about EE1, but if you lost the EE2 or EE2: AOS CD - you can download it here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1520
