Depends really on where you live and what time you check to play. You'll have the best luck in finding players when it's eveningtime in Europe. I'm in California, so from 11am to 4pm is the best time to play mp. I can almost always fine games at that time, although with so many different versions about it limits what's available to join. After 8pm PST, there's very few people playing. Since it's early morning overseas, most sub captains are asleep at that time. Good Luck.....

Well I'm big on sub vs sub type combat so I dont really play MP of SH3. I'd love to battle some people on 688I though, if anyone still has that game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif The thought of sinking AI ships with several other players doesnt seem to hold much more challenge than trying it alone imho.

UF_Excalibur_D has a point..It IS summertime and people are out and about more...I'm one of them, but I try to get on and check it out, in the evenings. I'll bet you come fall the servers will load up again....

Multiplayer apart from the lack of players has major problems. I have played a few and I€ve seen literally Destroyers doing cart wheels, Back flips out the water when sunk and even the odd wheelie in the sea.

When you see such things you simply loose interest and exit and like me put Battlefield 2 on for a challenging online game.

This is probably the last sub game I€ll buy, its looks great but you constantly come across ships ramming the shore line, Destroyers stopping on a dime and reversing at incredible speed then you have in my view a really poor AI with escorts heading at each other, get close and stop and that after you attack and they should know your out there.

Looks great all the same plays at time like a bit of a dog. And considering there might not be a patch for a while if ever I wish I€d just tried it and taken it back to the shop even though it was only 17.99.

I persevere in single player as it seems not too bad.
