Is The Multiplayer Broken?

#1 Posted by ProlificShadow (399 posts) -

I have a four person party that I play multiplayer games with, and we've already been having a ton of problems with the multiplayer in ACIII. We stopped playing Revelations because the multiplayer was, for all intents and purposes, broken if you wanted to play with a party and not get split up. We were hoping that we wouldn't have the same problems with ACIII, but so far we have been. Anyone else having issues?

I stopped playing AC multiplayer when I sat there for 20 minutes trying to find a match during AC Brotherhood launch week.

You never told us what is broken.

We can never connect to a match. Either it freezes, or some of us get kicked, or we are just stuck searching for a match constantly.

Could be one of you is having an issue. Can you connect alone?

We have all connected separately fine, and we don't have as much of a problem connecting to free for all game types, but team modes just don't work.

If we ever manage to connect, it drops us into the middle of a match and splits up the party.

I haven't had any problems playing with friends.

I've seen a fair number of dudes talking to each other as if they were in a party.
