real experts go random
i bet the leader boards change quick
this should be a mp option
idk know abou tat pppl could creat mod to always pick the same civ "even if on random
Random is for Elite.
I have done random every time I've played MP. I have gotten the Russians once, Chinese once and the Aztec 3 times.
I always ask everyone in my lobby if they are going to go random as well, and always get a yes from almost every person...then inevitably I'm the Aztecs playing Romans and Greeks...maybe another Aztec.
People love thier Romans.
Wish it displayed the oppent Civs in the lobby.
So, I suggest that in Ranked MP, if a person in the lobby asks if everyone is going random...we use a little of the honor system(which is lacking in online play)and truly do what you say.
See you on the map.
