After choosing the multiplayer, I choose "Standard" and then I am supposed to be able to choose between Internet or Local Network but the only option the game gives me is "Local Network". Does anyone know why. My internet connexion is through wifi and it's fine. Thanks!
If you're running the game through Steam make sure that Steam is in online mode.
I have had this issue before and what fixed it for me, oddly enough, was disabling the intro video. The way you do this is by going to
Options and select the
Interface Options tab. After that, in the bottom right hand corner you should see
Skip Intro Video, go ahead and select that. If it's selected you should see a green check mark in the radio button.
If neither of those two options are the issue, it could very well be your firewall. I never really suggest disabling your firewall, but you could always give it a whirl.
Of course as the comments on the OP say, if you have pirated it, you're SOL my friend.
