I bought the game yesterday, internet play is very nice, as long as you kick most of the 'newplayer' and 'demoplayer's, and put the speed minimum at 5x, to chase some of the trolls away.
(unnamed and demo players have tendency to quit early)
If anyone fancies a game against me, I'm called Oceania there. Demo players can play the game in default mode with up to three players.

I bought LOTR:BFME super cheap, and wasn't terribly impressed. Had some good stuff in it, but when it came down to the guts of the game, it was a very simplistic RTS. My usual gripe with RTS games is the lack of tactics, it's build up base, build up horde, mob enemy, repeat. Tedious in the extreme, and RTS games do not have to be like that. A Middle Earth RTS built in the manner of Knights Of Honour would be fantastic. It's real-time, but is well-paced, has tactics, both militarily and diplomatically.
So, I never played BFME2. I think I tried the demo and was as unimpressed as I was with the first one.

thats a good point for Defcon, btw, the ability to chnage the time speed, if noone has anything to do, you go to 5x, 10x or 20x the speed of the game, that way it focuses on placing and warring, not on travelling. Plus there's no producing or science, which makes for a lot of waiting too.
