    How many people still play DOTM and WFC?? I ask because I was thinking of buying one, but if no one is on multiplayer anymore...

    I still play both games. Matches get full in both games in Multiplayer.

    I still play. For PS3 or XBox? I have PS3, and a decent amount of people play. You'll have no problem getting a match in Team Deathmatch or Conquest, however the other 4 minigames are rarely played.

    Almost nobody plays Deathmatch in WFC. In DOTM, it's different. All three game modes are always full. Btw, I play on the PS3 as well, so I don't know how active people are on the Xbox 360.

    I play escalation from time to time, and there's still a decent number of people who play online. I say decent because the amount of players has dropped quite a bit since it's release, but that doesn't take any fun away. So if your planning on getting WFC I'd say go for it. As for DOTM, it's fairly new so I'm sure lots of people play it. Personally I dislike it's online, so I haven't picked it up since I beat the campaign.

    So you can count me in for WFC but not DOTM.

    On 360, it claims there are usually 800-1,000 people online most of the time. Team Deathmatch usually has 150 people or more. Conquest is similar. In practice I have very little problem finding a game and the teams are balanced in 99%* of the games. I should also mention that I have the DLC so I do not have the issue of being put into a game and getting kicked, but even if I did I wouldn't think it would affect it enough to diminish the experience drastically.




    *Totally an actual percent and TOTALLY not just pulled out my tailpipe... ;)

    It lags a lot for me. And I'm not a fan of stealth force. Kids will drive around in alt mode and never attempt to actually fight. Oh, and there's not many maps.

    So WFC is superior in playability, but not player count?

    Sorta. Like Josh said, you can still find matches no prob. There's just less people playing than there used to be. The first few months I played it on PSN there was around 2,000 something players online. Now your lucky to see 900.

    The Dark of the Moon game is a Diet War for Cybertron. They literally just took the WFC engine, cut a couple things, slapped a new coat of paint on it, and shipped it out the door. One of the reasons I'm playing WFC so much right now is that when I was playing DotM I kept saying to myself, "Self, why I am I playing the clone when I could be playing the superior real thing?"

    WFC has decent numbers, although I haven't played online in a while, if anyone wants to get a match going (Escalation, Deathmatch, whatever lol) add me on PSN and send a message! Haven't got DOTM (waiting for a lower price) but like others have already said it sounds like a watered down WFC. ROTF still has pretty good numbers online. I don't have any problem getting matches going on there.

    Been playing WFC almost every night since it came out. At it's high point, (PS3) it had around 8500 users at any given time. Nowadays it's down to 500-800. The geewuniness has me hooked more than anything. I haven't even bothered with DOTM as it lacks that aspect as well as having no Escalation. You'll find me on Conquest every night under the PSN name wikkid00d.
