Not the last time I played it (on Windows even). Unless you start a lonesome
campaign or obtain additional maps, all it comes with are the 4-6 basic
maps. I am not talking about a paid product here.

Speaking of which, what would be the point playing with 'drones'? Would you
distribute ammo among your peers only to receive fake, computer-genearated
gestures? Well, I guess they are computerised either way, but at least when
you play with actual people, there is some true group work and emotion comes
into play.

Maybe we should set up a game between you guys (on Windows) and some of us of
Linux. We will of course play the Allies. [humourous /]

Best wishes (don't take that last remark seriously),
