I just started playing and was wondering how recalling on multiplayer works.. So far I have I have done about 4 of the campaigns and leveled up a few guys, but I see that they are not available in a multiplayer scenario. I also played a multiplayer game and had an elf level there, but he was not available for recall on the next game. Am I doing something wrong or missing a setting? Thanks, great game!

Then there was no previous scenario to have gotten any veterans from. You can't recall in multiplayer unless it's a multiplayer campaign, and only a couple of multiplayer campaigns exist.lhhgbh wrote:Well when I play the campaigns I can recall guys fine. My question is, how do you recall guys in multiplayer games? I see the option but it says I do not have any veterans to recall.
ok that was my question.. so you cannot recall any soldiers or use any soldiers you have leveled in a networked multiplayer game with friends? so if I set up a local game with a few buddies we can only use the default characters, no recalling?
If you want to play with higher-level units, try using Age of Heroes, it gives you the default factions with the option to recruit level 2 units. There are also some other multiplayer eras you can get from the add-on server. You can change eras for a scenario at the bottom left, when configuring the scenario.
If it isn't a campaign, you can't recall anything as the game you played prior to your current game bears no connection, whereas in a campaign you have scenarios that are connected. Simple as that.
No, because recalls are allowed in some multiplayer campaigns. But it would make sense to remove it from default multiplayer, I think.Zarel wrote:Hmm, should we just remove the "recall" option entirely from the first levels of campaigns/mp?
It could be removed when there is nothing to recall but the message you get makes that pretty clear I thought. Otherwise there is no limitation to not have recalls in the first scenario.

I said the first level. I can't think of any MP campaign where you can recall units on its first level.Caphriel wrote:No, because recalls are allowed in some multiplayer campaigns. But it would make sense to remove it from default multiplayer, I think.

Well I wasnt doing a multiplayer campaign, I was just trying to set up a quick match between me and a friend. I had done a test game between myself and the pc earlier (also in the multiplayer single game) and the veterans from that game were not available for the game with my friend.. I will keep messing with it and check out some of the add ons to better understand it.

While you're free to keep messing with it, I don't think that'll teach you anything new. It's really quite simple:lhhgbh wrote:Well I wasnt doing a multiplayer campaign, I was just trying to set up a quick match between me and a friend.

You can recall units only in campaigns. If you are not playing a campaign, you will have no units to recall.
