I just bought this game for PC, never had this game before on any other platform.

I'm downloading it right now but I wonder how the activity is on the PC platform multiplayer? Also is there any leaderboards? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No replies yet, doesn't look good.

And the only two votes goes for people can't find anyone to play with online.

This looks really bad :|

I hope you are right. I'm still downloading the setup files from Ubisoft, so can't wait.

Just hope it works!

It works. be prepared to accept that the problem might be on your end. I just played a few Ranked sessions in a row.

Will post pics in a second.

I don't have any trouble playing MP. Sessions are starting in 1-2 minutes from hitting Play button and no lag, no high ping. Everything works extremely well for me. And MP is great http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Only thing that i don't like is only 8 players per map. I would like maybe 12 max per map it would be more dynamic on larger maps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ubisoft support said that port 1000 should be open on routers.

I also opened the 27015 port, as per intstructions on portforward.com

I had no problems prior to doing that anyway. Doesn't help to cover all bases though.

Hi, i posted this on another similar thread so it shouldn't do any harm to posted here also.

I'm reading the posts on this forum and some of the people are complainning about matchmaking, pnkbuster and random disconnections.

I had some similar issues and i found out that the problem rested in the way ports are opened/forwarded.
In the game's read-me all the users can find a port that needs to be either opened or included in the router's FW list.
Also, like most PC Multiplayer games, issues like slow to no matchmaking are the source of several connections through badly configurated routers.
In my case the problem was that i couldn't find any sessions in COD4, talked to support and they asked me if it was possible to have one connectio that was independent of any routers...and it worked. The same problem appeared for me when i tried ACB - so i just made some modifications to my connection and now it works fine.
Let me know if it worked out for you.

Yeah, the few times I played, I saw quite a few people run n' gunning too.

But I like how you (most of the time?) get more points than them by killing stealthily.

Edit: Got into a Manhunt round where my team would just run like monkeys all over the place and alert our targets all the time.
The score difference was quite big in the enemy team's favor. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

And it's so annoying while you're going to get your kill without the enemy seeing you and then your teammate runs right to him and the enemy smoke bombs both of us because I was almost on him. :P

Windrius
03-19-2011, 07:54 AM
Uhh.. So annoying.
It worked an hour ago and now I'm getting problems again.
Either I can't find players or when all 6 connect I get dcd from the host or a message saying session is unreachable...
Uhh... I'm just gonna play SP until MP is fully fixed.

03-19-2011, 07:59 AM
yeah i had to wait alooot of time to get a game i should start adding people on steam just to play it more

unfortunatly most of the pc gamers are noob runners that i easly intercept for a easy 300 points kill(after this i don't get how console players whine about those noobs)

I'm not happy with multiplayer. I was waiting three month to play this one, and I can't. Because almost every player on session have high-*** ping. So it's impossible to understand what the hell is happening. I really hope it'll be like that just a few days after release.
And of course waiting for the other player is terribly slow. =\

I have tried for hours! Only gotten into two games, the first one I got disconnected from after 30 seconds.

Second one I got to stay and really enjoyed it for like 3 minutes then disconnected. Didn't keep any score, points.

And I am giving up, I have to like use half and hour just trying to start over and try again, again.. And when I get into a game, I get disconnected sometime?! So I had one real try after trying to enter a game for 3 hours now!
Update Got into my 3rd game, killed someone, was fun! But.. Got disconnected after 10 seconds, yey. *tired* *giving up* http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The multiplayer actually works very well. But, although I'm generally a pretty good gamer, I'm not able to play this AT ALL. I'm getting completely asskicked, just like I don't understand what I'm doing. I feel like having an IQ of 50, even though that's faaar from the truth. I'm the worst player every single round, even against people on level 1. It's actually getting worse and worse the more I play. I'm obviously doing something wrong, but I have no idea what. When I'm pursuing people, they know I'm coming (even if I'm hidden - I try to be stealthy), and if I'm being pursued they know it's me in a group of 7-8 lookalikes.
In Modern Warfare 2 I'm always getting better (which means it's more and more fun), I'll probably stop playing this after tomorrow. It's just waaaaay too hard.

The poll won't give an honest answer, the only people who visit this forum are people who have issues with the game (for the most part)

So everyone who would possibly say: yes is not here :P

Anyway I voted yes, considering how large and great the SP is, the MP is surprisingly well made for a small addition.

I like it so much I'd love to see them expand it and release it as a separate small priced MP only game, packed full of new features and such.

I hope they have an even better MP in AsC 3 when and they make it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Get 1 Minute into the tutorial and disconnect and then forced to load up single player all over again.


Why does it force you back to single player instead of just letting you reconnect? So stupid

I'm starting to like the MP more today. Not getting asskicked like yesterday. But, it's a bit too random IMO. Whether I'm winning or being number 6 is only about luck. I might lead by a long shot halfway through a round, and still lose, and vice versa. It's all about luck, as everyone seems to have the same tactics, and are equally skilled. It makes it interesting and fun, but can also be very frustrating. Oh, and locking is somewhat awkwardly hard at times.

Ok for starters I haven't had any porblems getting into a multiplayer game and I haven't opened any ports for this game nor have I turned off my firewall, I was prompted to allow/block the game from accessing the internet to which I allowed.

As for the people having problems with punkbuster, my game didn't even install it nor did it tell me to update/add tghe game to PB which is install for a dozen other game I have.
I haven't read anywhere that PB is required for ACB multiplayer. I could be wrong and have just haven't noticed that PB is needed.

I've never heard anyone speak in this game yet...
Oh btw, how hard is the wanted mode? I've struggled a lot in this MP game in general, but still in this mode I always have 2 guys after me, while someone else always take my kill. I also seem to spawn almost in front of the one looking for me, while my target is on the other side of the map. Plus, I can't use stun, while being stunned all the time myself. Assassinate mode works perfect though.
