  • What kind of computer do I need to play games over the Internet? - Top

    Chances are that if you can read our web site you will be able to play most of the games that we support. System requirements do vary though, depending on the game you want to play. You will generally find the minimum requirements listed right on the box when you purchase a retail game. If you are experiencing problems with a specific gaming service, please consult their customer support department for further assistance.

  • What kind of Internet connection do I need to play games over the Internet? - Top

    This depends on what type of game you will be playing. Board and card games usually do not require a fast connection. Action, strategy, and simulation games though require a faster connection. In general the faster and more stable your connection to the Internet, the more enjoyable your online gaming life will be.

  • Where do I find people to play matches against? - Top

    Go to the chat room or lobby of the online gaming service you use to play your game. To find out in which room your Ladder plays, check the “Game-Specific Rules” section of the “Rules” of that Ladder or post in the message forum. Some of the services have special rooms for playing Ladder matches in. Once you are there all you need to do is publicly ask "Anyone for a Case's Ladder match?" If it is hard to find opponents, try to be patient. When new Ladders are created it usually takes a few weeks to get a good pool of players. After that, you will generally have no problem finding Ladder matches.
