One of the reasons for a lack of tutorials is that there are way too many ways to do multi-player. It's a very broad term that includes everything from a two-player turn-based game (think Words with Friends) to a near real-time game like Fortnite. It includes LAN/WiFi games to Internet based games. 


Then there is the sheer number of online services that you can choose from. Google supports multi-player through their Google Play Game Services (GPGS) and Apple supports multi-player through GameCenter. Neither of these are cross-platform solutions. Gamesparks and PlayFab are two services that have plugins for Corona that you can use.  You can see some additional plugins on our docs site:  




And in our Marketplace:




Any community advice is going to need to know more about what you want to do. Can you provide more information about what type of game you want to make?
