Title asks the key question. I don't know about most of you, but my multiplayer experience has deteriorated steadily since launch. I've tried all the "workarounds" and have a high-end rig with a great connect (both UL and DL), a compatible router with working port forwarding, and yet I cannot remember the last time I played a match that didn't have horrible issues. Ordinarily I would just stfu and patiently wait for the hard-working dev team to do their job, but in the midst of all this I'm reading posts from management giving their team the weekend off and kudos to their devs for extensive new AI code ... unbelievable.
So I'm wondering. Is there any reason to expect that things are going to improve eventually, or is this it? Are we there yet?
just go die in a fire already, internetz wise at least...
If I were the type of person to take offense to things I read on the internet, I think I would take offense to that. I don't troll the boards all day because I want to stick my tongue in Brad's ear or anything. I am on the boards all the time because I like message boards.
I think they will go drown a few cats instead.
Yeah, I knew the post would draw some heat, I'll live.
As for the software management angle, I've never had to make my team work overtime to fix a problem like this. What usually happens is that team itself feels sufficiently committed to fixing the problem that they themselves volunteer to do what's necessary to get it working. Someone from Stardock posted in this thread that they've been working 14 hour days and that just signals a red flag to me. I would never have programmers working 14 hour days, you can't be productive like that and it kills morale. The last time my team had an emergency situation like this they set up a rotating schedule. We divided the group into three teams that would work around the clock in 8 hours shifts so that no team worked more than 8 hours a day but we had people on the project around the clock. It was actually fun and it felt great to see that kind of spontaneous dedication emerge without anyone having to crack a whip. I didn't have to overwork anyone and a significant problem got fixed in just under a week. Getting the job done and making a customer happy was reward enough for those guys, but we gave them a helluva lot more than that *after* the customers were taken care of.
Yea, I played in a 3x3 the night I posted. You want to know how that game went lol? We came out of the lobby after about 2-3 minutes before we got the "A Player has left the game" message because of the guy who got squeezed out and then we spent the rest of the game alternating between halfway decent play and fits of connect dialog entertainment. The game sucked rubber donkey lungs. You really think the problems were on my end and there's nothing wrong with the game? Right. (rolls eyes and shakes head).
I've started playing Sacred II on the XBox and that's a deep and satisfying game, but every night I check in here to see if there's news about a fix and I try a game or two before I go to bed. I think it's an incredibly cool game concept and it's great to be able to play a quick 25-minute match that is strategic and requires teamwork. I hope to hell they get this thing fixed. But I haven't heard much that's encouraging. When programmers are being worked 14 hours a day and then come on to the forums to tell a customer "I'm not going to kill myself for you", I have a hard time imagining a scenario with a happy ending.
But the game's good enough that I'll hold out hope and keep checking. Geez, it's getting hard...
i see people failing to use the proxy servers despite having issues connecting to ppl
i dont use nor do i need too
I also wager that people are starting games before everyone is connected across the board.
adding onto what I said before ...Lawyers make carriers off winning bullshit frivalous lawsuits like thisMcdonalds got sued for hot coffeeWhy not demigod for a shitty game? (based on opinion of course)
Because spilling Demigod on your lap wont scar you for life?
what u said is the reason most people think americans are stupid and ignorant sueing sd for a game your a moron
if u dont like how they handled it ask for a refund and fuck off but dont waste time posting worthless posts
ohh and your wrong cars are less complicated then games cars are simple combustion engines with between 6 and 12 pistons that get forced down by little explosions in the engine
Not that I'll be the one to do it bcuz if I do finish law school it wont be for quite a few years but like I said, a lawsuit like this would make someones carrier.And I'm sure as soon as someone comes up with a good precedence to go to court with it will be like dominoes.Lawyer after lawyer will be lining up to take their shot at video game companiesI'm not justifying it anymore then I would justify the lawsuit where the women put a chopped off finger in her chili and sued wendy'sI'm just saying. Its been a long time coming
you drive during the rain wind snow daytime twighlight midnight and morningand you think all a car is, is pistons....You should take time to think about deleting that comment
lol stupid and ignorant at the same timeSee I was under the impression that ignorance took some measure of intellegence, because being ignorant would imply that I have the capacity to understant the world around me and I either chose to ignore it or simply wasn't exposed to it.Stupidities assertation is that I am unable to understand the world lacking the capacity to properly observe it...So stupid and ignorant huh?
btw I normally wouldn't stoop so low as to correct someones grammer on a message boardbut that was atrocious
and who is "people"? You speak as if to say people from other countries think were stupid... In which case I assure you, their are much more contemptable differences in our and other developed democratic countries legal systems then frivalous law suits.Our whole system is a joke, personal damage lawsuits are actually one of the only things in our legal system that works.The playing field has to be tipped toward the individual sueing the company because companies possess so much more money. In most VALID lawsuits against large companies the person who suffered the damages is forced to settle for much less then they are entitled to(and by that I mean actually need). Companies often use underhanded tactics to exhaust and demoralize the person sueing. The women who we were talking about earlier who spilled the coffee in her lap was actually entitled to much more then she had gotten. If you subscribe to lawyers digest you can see the pictures and read the real story. The coffee had begun to melt her cup and spilled all over he lap, in some places she had 3rd degree burns. Mcdonalds eventually wore her out and she settled out of court for much less then she could have made and then they spread the rediculous story you probobly heard to the public and used it to lobby congress for tort reform.
I can't muster up the energy to find a picture of Patrick Stewart. I will just emote it instead.
lol I was going to find one for you but I found this why'll looking and couldn't resist
Nope. You are wrong. And I'm not going bother telling you why, but when you've done the research, remember this post.
not going to try anything above 2v2 until an offical patch is released.
ping spikes are unbareable
where are the parameters such as ( /useproxyonly) entered?
Yeah, the fact you are going to attend law school makes you any more credible to listen to than anyone else because it makes you a legal genious. Oh wait, you are GOING to attend... You haven't graduated top of your class, got highered by a big ass firm, and won a 100 cases just like this one, that would actually make you qualified or something, what was I thinking.
Meanwhile, I've watched all of Boston Legal a few trillion times, time for me to get some clients with my encyclopedic knowledge of the law! Who needs the Bar exam!
lawyers are all scum anyway wouldn't take their word for shit.
"contribute" to the judges relection and you win more cases its an amazing coincidence.
I'm sure there are at least 2 decent lawyers but a majoirity of them are greedy dicks that bend the law to line their pockets. No morals just greed the exact opposite of what they should be.
"All it takes is a bright attorney to figure out what to charge them with. Soon other people and other attorneys hear about it and how much another person ->stands<-(I used that word for a reason)to make and hop on the band wagon."
above quote proves my point.
Thanks to TheDakoe:
That being said, I am hearing a lot of people saying that they proxy servers are behaving poorly right now.
And of course it naturally depends on where you are physically in relation to the nearest server.
There are many great features available to you once you register, including:
