Wow! You got the Laptop version? That must be difficult and or different to play, control wise I mean. Yeah when you first load the game it does take a really long time to load, never understood why that is, but after that you just pop it in and play. As for the Online community I beg to differ. While it might not be as big as some online communities like Call of Duty, which I find boring to play anyway, There is still a thriving community for WFC. You have play during peak hours which is mostly during the day. Thats when alot are online. Which I never understood why kids are playing games in the middle of the day when they should be at school. I can hear them with their headsets on and they sound like they are 10 yeas old
. Weekends too of coarse are pretty busy online with people. Late night hours (Night Owls) you get mostly your veterans online. All your Prime Mode players , champs, pro's, MVP's, all your high scorers. When it hits around 4 or 5 am is when its dead and virtually no one is in MultiPayer except for maybe a small amount of people in Team Deathmatch. But then again there still a whole mess of others in Escalation. For some reason Escalation always seems to be running 24 hours with people.I guess its less threatening than playing against actual people or MVP's.
As for help and tips on the game there is a whole thread for any WFC questions you might have located here......http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/war-for-cybertron-ask-help-thread-t66880.php
Personally I love War For Cybertron. The characters, the story, the designs, everything. Its my favorite universe since G1. Wish it could be made into a series or movie.
Enjoy the game.
