Oh, that isn't what I meant. There can only be two humans though. But other than that it is just like campaign. With the added bonus of whenever the other person attacks an army (and goes into the battle screen) you can choose to take control of the army he is fighting. Just so you always have something to do.
And yes, I feel like the special units are a huge rip off.
so there are still the other factions in the campaign? if so thats fantastic!
