Skillasaur Posted June 18, 2014 Share Posted June 18, 2014 So I'm trying to get new people into the game, 'cause I'm leader of a small clan and I've put a lot of hours into trying to unlock things but I find myself going through this same series of events again and again. Me: Wanna play a few missions? I know you're busy but it'll only take a few minutes. Them: Sure, I've got time. Me: Okay, so I've got a session - sending you an invite. Them: Okay, got it... and it failed. Resend? Me: Okay, resent. Them: Still nothing. Try again? Me: Okay. Now? Them: No... let me try creating a session and sending you an invite. Me: Okay. Got it... nope, won't connect. Them: Alright, let's try re-logging. *5 minutes later* Them: Okay, now it's saying you're not even in a session. Me: Well, I am... I can see the lobby. Them: Well, I'll keep trying to join. *another 5 minutes later* Them: Okay, finally got in your group. Let's go- oh wait. I've gotta go now. Sorry. Maybe play some other time. Me: Okay... :'( Tl;Dr: Session joining is broken. I actually think this is probably a really easy fix. My suggestion would be to add an automatic retry on the connection, which would likely fix most instances of having to repeatedly manually retrying to get into a lobby. The fact we can eventually connect leads me to suspect it's not a ports or client-side issue - it's likely the server struggling to track sessions. A multiplayer game which you can't play multiplayer with your friends is doomed to fail, and from what I hear I'm not the only one suffering here by far.
