Skirmish Booster, play against other people?

Somebody told me that the Skirmish Booster made Age of Empires Online into a real Real-Time Strategy game. But I'm getting the impression that it allows normal RTS play against the computer only? I realize you can co-op, but I'd really like to play like a standard RTS against other people.

Thanks.

AoEO is always an RTS, the Skirmish Booster does not define that.

For the Skirmish Hall, it can support up to 4 human players against 4 AI. It is just like any other skirmish mode out there, like SupCom2.

You can also co-op quests, where it is one human helping out another human for the quest.

Right now as far as PvP is concerned there is Champion Mode where everyone is level on the same playing field and gear stats are not counted and only used aesthetically. This is so it is fair.

There is also the Arena where you can do 1v1 or 2v2 for PvP.

See you out there.

If the cumbersome introduction is an indication, Age of Empires Online is not a standard RTS.

But I suppose the skirmish pack is necessary for practice anyway.

By the way... How can you see anybody "out there" when you are always in the forums? What is your player name? I will look for you out there.

You can add me on Steam and LIVE.

Oh, and I play on the Marathon server.

Annoying how there are so many different servers....I've moved a few times now & have finally found one with many folk I know from steam. I'm on Athens so doesn't look we'll be battling anytime soon.

Well, I don't mind switching realms. It only takes a minute or two. So maybe if I see you're on we can get something going.

Sounds good mate. I spotted you on a few nights ago but already had some skirmishes lined up. Soon though, very soon
