I'm playing coe2 right now. I figure if coe3 goes on sale, I'll grab it (I get overexcited about games like that, so I force myself to wait for a sale, so that I can stop myself from making too many impulse purchases. If I still want it when it goes on sale, than it's something I really want).

I'm enjoying it. Lots of surprises. Fast turns. Winning a game on med map on baron level took about 2-3 hrs.

to delve more into details: its much quicker, however i dont find single player mdoe more challenging/satisfacting or more fun than dom3's: the AI seems to be on the same level, and i get bored about as quickly.

i havent tried coe3 in MP yet, i wonder what it would be like.

Single Player in CoE3 also depends a lot on luck, if an AI gets a strong start, it can pose quite a hazard. Obviously it also depends on what class you play and what class the AI players are and other factors. And an AI is never going to be the equivalent of a human.

CoE3 MP is fun, because the games are quick enough that you can get things done and actually finish games in a reasonable timeframe. And the balance between doing things in CoE3 MP is quite good.

I like both MP and SP, but MP is a lot more fun. Other players do unexpected things which makes the game a lot more interesting.

SP is still a blast because it feels like every time I play there is something new I discover, whether it be a new spell, unit, special location, magic item, etc.

I treat SP a lot more like a dungeon crawl. Its all about seeing the land and fighting monsters.

MP still definately has those aspects, but it has opponents that make everything a lot more exciting and unpredictable.
