For those who have had trouble connecting...

how long has it taken to join other games by yourself; without other party members.

From my experience it has taken around 5 minutes on average when searching without any other party members.

When it first came out (IE that saturday and sunday) it would take 15-20 minutes to join a game

Now it seems to have gotten down to 5 - 10 minutes. I dont know if its because epic heard the complaining and fixed the issue, or if its because people went out and bought the game. But its noticeably better.

well, whenever I have trouble connecting; I would just pelt people with coconuts to pass the time.

So in coconut time, I would say 10 coconuts before I can get connected.

Yeh I think that's just because people went out and bought the game.

yeah, when I'm alone it takes me about 5 minutes. With a party it is considerable faster.




anybody gotten to level 50 in horde mode? I got to 20.

Its normally over 5 mins for me, half the time it just seems like it goes faster if I fiddle around in the menu's while it searches for player's...

It's kinda crazy if you think about it, getting the "Party Like It's 1999" achievement could be 5min wait  X  1999 matches (not including the time for the match itself) = 9995mins  = 166.58 hours = 6.9 days just waiting for games to start.

I know I am exaggerating here but they really need to fix this.

Normally about 3-5 minutes, then sometimes i lose my 'connection to host' just a pain in the ass really knowing that probally why dudes keep leaving in the pre-game menus. Epic should really sort this out, as it is otherwise a superior shooter.

Some times it takes a few min, other times its quick.  The worst seems to be when you are looking for just one player.

damn, i just quit playing the multiplayer by myself. I only play with a party so I dont have to wait for 5-10 minutes. Went back to playing Battlefield: Bad Company.
