I was thinking of buying this, is it still active?

Thanks for any replies.

I find a game within 1 minute of searching, however I almost gave up on it after I couldn't find anyone. Turned out my NAT wasn't open, so as long as that's all sorted, you should find people 9 times out of 10 within 2-3 minutes max

There is a great community for this game... Tons of new players still play, so you will have easy games. Also, there is a large competitive community...

Check out this youtube channel for TONS of halo wars content. youtube.com/user/BAS1STA

Also, this is one of the only websites for halo wars, it's worth looking at. www.halowarslegion.com

Anyway, you find games VERY fast, from all different skill levels.

AND it's fun!!

(the DLC playlists are DEAD! COMPLETELY! But you still find 2v2,1v1,3v3, party teams and unarranged)

I'm looking to get this game soon. I'm more interested in the story of the campaign than multiplayer, but since I'm an achievement whore I would like to know if grinding the general rank involves a lot of grinding. Also, are DLCs still playable? Thanks

General is a MASSIVE task. It will require many, many hours. However, I picked this game up the other day and it is a nice thing to come back to every now and then for a few games. So personally, I will be working towards general eventually.

It is a tough game though, multiplayer isn't forgiving.
