Hey guys, I just bought the game and have played it a few time with friends (yes I'm still a noob), but I already really love it. Having played a few TCG's before (mostly WoW TCG) I fell in love with playing card games with people online over the OCTGN program and I was wondering if people in this community used it, and if so would want to play a game or two with me. Its a great way to cross-pollinate communities with new deck ideas and it allows people to play many more games than they could normally put in. FYI there is a great OCTGN 2 plug-in for W:I already which is current up to the Skavenblight battlepack.

Its a free program which allows you to play TCG's over the internet. The old version was kind of difficult to use (it was built for MtG so other games were hard to play on it) but OCTGN 2 is really intuitive. You just download the client and the W:I plugin w/ card data (I'll link them at the bottom), create your deck on the files, and get the port code your opponent is using and play.

W:I Plug-in Site (in English and Spanish... for some reason): http://eloooooooi.net84.net/

Perhaps because the guy who did the plug-in speaks spanish

I'll have time to check this out on the weekend.  Playing W:I online would be very cool.

Well you have to give out an IP... which sucks.... apparently the server host feature go them into legal troubles so they can't do that anymore... The good news is that I'm willing to host if people will PM me on the forums to set up times and stuff like that. I don't have any important info on this computer anyways. Also, we could set up a IRC  channel if needs be. I guess if you guys wanted to host that could work as well.

Strike that... there is no PM system... well that sucks.... There is an OCTGN IRC so if you give a time, I'll go on it and we can exchange game info...

Hell just email me if you want.. include W:I OCTGN in the subject... My email is on my profile

 I'd be up for some play online! Facebook pages are good ways to organize things like this.

Thank you but I was speaking about OCTGN. 

Somebody knows where I could find the last battle pack?

I just discovered OCTGN and would love to play some Warhammer Invasion over it. Please PM me if you're interested. I'm in the eastern time zone. Thanks!

I finally had a chance to find a willing tutor to walk me through a couple of games of Invasion on OCTGN. To this patient European gentleman, my thanks.

I'm still really shaky and still might not be able to play with some help from people who're more familiar with this kind of computery stuff, but I'll get there. It sure would be a heck of a lot easier with skype, though I haven't found anyone who is agreeable to that yet.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to trying this again when I can find some more free time.
