Creating a multiplayer lobby has gotten worse again. For a while there you’d create a lobby, it would actually create and people would join. Now it’s almost impossible. I will sit in a lobby for hours with no one joining. I have to keep re-creating for almost an hour until it finally really creates and people can see it. Games that do show up fill up so fast because not enough lobby’s can be created for the people waiting to play.
Go in to multiplayer
Watch as no one joins for hours
Have friend look in lobby to confirm yours isn’t showing up
I got the same problem. I’m with a friend and we are terrible for ranked so first we need some practise in the custom games but we have no chance of anyone joining my games or my friends… The patch you did was really needed and great. But there are 2 things we find it difficult.
1st The mini map is hard to understand for new people should be more visible.
2nd The posibility of having people to join my games, they can’t see them in the lobby.
Yes we have exactly the same problem, we create a lobby and people can join normally. Then after about 1 minute, nobody can join the lobby. If my friend quit and try to go back the lobby disapeared.
Did somebody found a way to fix this problem ?
I’ve read elsewhere that in AOE 2, players only see 10-15% of the lobbies hosted. It seems that since AOE: DE and AOE2:DE are hosted on one server, our lobbies are being “hidden” almost. In a game like AOE2:DE where there is a plethora of lobbies already, I’m sure it’s not that big an issue especially with a working match making system.
Our match making system already doesn’t work. This has further increased the alienation that our community feels and many have already left to move on to other games that can at least be played.
Yes, as today, July, 07, servers are still buggy, games are not showing properly sometimes.
I noticied it usually happens when servers are more stressed, like in weekends. Probably because aoe1 and aoe2 DE share same servers, so aoe2 number of players stress the servers a lot.
So i think its related to servers but not only that. I have checked aoe 1 DE and aoe 2 DE at same time when it happens, lobby browser works much better in aoe 2 DE, it loads faster and barely miss any hosted games in the list. That said i think its server related but also game related.
Many players are getting stuck on “Fletching game lobbies…” message.
Many times it get stuck on this message and we have to go back and reopen multiplayer or even close the game.
Many times it shows no rooms at all, even tho we know there are games been hosted.
Other times it shows parcial hosted rooms.
Gotta fix it asap.
