These are played online against other human players (or in combination with some AI players). This interaction with other people provides the most challenging games and offers the opportunity for social interaction with friends and new acquaintances across the world. When you launch a multiplayer game the Settlers 7 site will match you up with others looking to play. You may arrange to meet and play with friends you already know. The results of online games are tracked by the Settlers 7 site and rankings of player wins and losses are presented on ladders for all viewers to see.
