I was wondering why the multiplayer object is not allowed in the arcade ?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Maybe because of the influx of "Ghost Shooters", Scirra was just scared that the same would happen to the multiplayer demos, making the servers crash ...
I don't think it matters if they are in he arcade or being tested from home in preview.
Both instances would require the signalling server I guess.
