Dear Age of Empire community,
It seems like I have a problem not many have. Till this day I have only found a handful of people on reddit who suffer from the same problem.
I can’t play Quick Matches in the new PUP version.
I can observe other matches that are going on and also custom lobbies I can join just fine, but the Quick Match option seems to be the problem.
This is the Error Code I get while trying to look for a Quick Match:
The Reddit I am referring to is this page: https://www.reddit.com/r/aoe4/comments/10g2wr4/anybody_else_unable_to_play_games_on_pup/
I have tried the following things.
I have tried to connect to different servers (original is West Europe), used a VPN to see if that would work, de-installed all of my mods, re-installed the whole game, checked my firewall and anti-virus software and I also verified all of the files again on steam.
It is weird because I can actually start my own custom game without any problem. I can also start a skirmish in single player, the campaign works just fine. People can also join my group. If I go back to the “normal” version there is no problem at all.
So basically the PUP match making seems to be the factor that is broken for me.
I hope one of you have a better understanding of this situation and how I, and the others, could fix this!
