If the last (as in, presumably final) Dom3 game folds, I would be game, but as of now the jury is still out on its continued health. I'm hoping it pulls through its patch-related woes.

Neither round 401 or 402 is close to finishing, I don't know about Dom3 round 15 though. But that doesn't mean you couldn't make a new thread at Play With Your Buddies.

Still, if it seems like Bay12 just doesn't have the manpower for four games, you can always check the official multiplayer forum. Often enough there's a newbie friendly game starting up.

Either way, I'd fiddle with the game for a week or so before thinking about multiplayer. Just to get the very very basic mechanics down. You don't need to know about advanced late game tactics or minmaxed early-to-midgame transitions and whatnot to have fun, but the interface is a minor hurdle. Nothing compared to dwarf fortress but it's there.

In fact I think about a week of fiddling was what I had before I thrust myself into my first multi. And there I am, still alive. Teetering on the edge of a razor to be sure, but still alive.

Yeah I assumed I would have time to fiddle with it before going to multiplayer but wanted to check the status.

I got wrecked by the mighty difficulty AI... Everywhere I see are complaints of the AI being bad.  Where does that put me?

Thank you heaps for the sale warning! I was just a bit short when the game was 25% off but with 66% off it was just the right price.

I got wrecked by the mighty difficulty AI... Everywhere I see are complaints of the AI being bad.  Where does that put me?

The difficulty is pretty standard TBS fare, higher difficulties give much better bonuses to the AI. So it isn't that good but it is strong if you set it that way.
Plus at this point the AI probably knows the game better than you do :P

All the AI does is recruit hordes of units and send them at you. It doesn't do proper thugs or make good use of magic or use elite units to their fullest potential, which is why it's not considered very good, but a new player can have a difficult time dealing with all those units nevertheless.

And the fact that they're not really good diplomats might change how you play against them, too ... :-
