Assassin's Creed: Revelations Multiplayer matching issues

#1 Posted by ProlificShadow (399 posts) -

Me and a couple friends picked up AC:R at midnight and have been trying to play the multiplayer. We loved AC:B multiplayer and very rarely had any problems with it. The only problem we've had with the AC:R multiplayer is that, we can't find anyone else playing. If we do actually get in a match, it's with one other person and they split our party up. We've played with medium and high activity. Is this just a matter of the game only being out for a day? I wouldn't think so considering the activity. Does no one play team modes in AC:R? Have you guys been having the same experience?

I think it's an issue with matchmaking with a party. I was able to find games on my own no problem, but when I was in a party with another guy we ran into some issues. We got into the first game no problem, but when the match was over we were dumped out on our own to find another match, which never happened. We spend 10 minutes trying to get into another game with no luck. Guess they have some kinks to work out.

Hopefully they'll work it out. I think AC:B (and consequently AC:R) have arguably the most unique multiplayer on the market.

I haven't had to wait more than like 20 or 30 seconds tops for a match as a soloist. havent tried in a party

For what it's worth, I also couldn't get this to find a match when I was in a party.

However, when I joined a game solo, my friend was able to jump into that game as well. As long as we chose to rematch, we were in the same game.

My issues with the multiplayer go as far as the simple fact that there just don't seem to be many people playing online on PS3. I've been playing on & off usually between the hours of 8pm to Midnight since the weekend & I am yet to have a match that is completely full up which is very disappointing given the popularity of the team based matches.

Being on an odd numbered team isn't going to kill the fun you can have inside a match but it does become a bummer when you've played for nearly an hour in the same session without a victory.

I find it near-impossible to find games with the Play Now button; it's almost entirely fine when using the Custom Games option.

I have been completely unable to connect to their servers. I have a good connection and no issues like this in any other game. Don't know what's up.
