I have seen other questions on here about disabling battle animations, but I would like them shown when I play online with friends. Is this possible to turn them on? If so, how?

If my troops get owned, I would like to know where and how. Animations usually help me with this [as I am relatively new to the game].

I don't think its possible to have them on for multi-player games, its part of trying to speed the game up for everyone. – bwarner Apr 30 '12 at 2:07

There is no way to enable battle animations in online play. You need to look out for a mod.

You can disable the quick action option once you've started your online game and this will enable your animations. Basically, "quick action" = no animations.
