Hi Stako,

if it's simply that you want to try some mutiplayer, then the options are to:
- create a custom game via the mutiplayer menu and either wait patiently, or ask in the global chat (3rd button top right of screen) if anyone is interested in the game type you want to play.
- join the matchmaker in the multiplayer queue and select the options you want and wait.
- play an online realm and invite a friend or ally to a battle (note allies are a bit less common due to the friend function.

Also, if it's to walk through in a bit more detail, then consider adding any of the people on this thread in Steam and message them so that you can ask what you want to know and what you want to play. Most are UK based, so feel free to shout.

Cheers, and hope to see you in game,

If you're on steam, feel free to add me:
http://steamcommunity.com/id/RafiRomero/
Or add me as a friend in-game: I'll accept!

I'm often online during the week, and some UK evenings.
If you've any questions, feel free to ask.

For multiplayer PvP, first time around I:
Click "Multiplayer & Online Realms";
Click "Multiplayer Battles";
Click "Matchmaker & League Games";
Tick everything except 2v2, and select "Live Game" instead of "Asynchronous Game" *
"Save Settings for Quick Match"
Then hit "Back", back again, then "Quick Match".

* You may want to un-tick options you don't want. I'm specifically thinking of whether you want both law-mode and chaos-mode games, and whether you want both classic and equipped games. I'd leave ranked ticked, there are no penalties for losing ranked games.

Game tends to be busiest around UK evening times.
If you want to play at quiet times, it can be good to queue several asynchronous games: these are like play-by-mail without mail. You can hit quick match, and then play any outstanding turns in your asynchronous games while you're waiting for your live match to start.

There's also in-game chat (people icon next to the game guide, top-left), although it is a little bit hidden and so rather underused at the moment - snapshot are fixing this:)

I'm dumfsirg in CR, don't use Steam anymore when I can help it.
I prefer asyncs or asyncs played 'live' :)
