View Full Version : Unable to start multiplayer

So i finally got my Anno 1800 edition today from Amazon. Wanted to play it with a friend, but we always get a "Uplay could not send your invitation" error... no matter who of us hosts.

Both of us have the green open NAT type symbol.

So whats the problem there? What keeps us from playing?

Same problem

We are getting the same... perhaps you should have stayed on Steam with this game?

Got The same Problem in Germany and The Uplay Chat is not opening anymore...

Hmm even the old versions of Anno that are on steam are using an internal/uplay matchmaker, and not the one from steam. So staying on steam would not have made any difference there.

I assume that something is off... ore more players using the multiplayer than expected, and causing the server to be unable to handle it.. who knows. I just know that during the open beta it worked instantly, and now i only get those "cannot sent invitation" errors.

Same here. These online only games are so annoying, I will think about it twice before I buy my next game from anyone. :mad::mad::mad:

There was a time where you could look up your LAN for open games or enter an IP-address.... not nowadays.

Hey folks,

Is this still an issue for anyone?

This was reported during an issue with Uplay.

No problem anymore. At least for us

Still having the same problem at the time of writing this. Inviting them now seems to show as sent friends are still unable to join the Lobby.
