    Absense of invites/messages

    I can neither send messages/invites, nor create groups. Neither in overlay/game, nor in Ubisoft Connect itself.

    As I know, many of you have encountered such issue since last updates. There was another thread about this problem (https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthrea...s)?p=15462768), but I can't see that it has been taken into further investigation, therefore I restart it.

    Platform: Ubisoft Connect (I bought my copy of game in Epic Games, but I use only Ubisoft connect to launch the game)
    OS: Windows 8.1

    As for list of things that were done:
    - Verifying game files;
    - Reinstalling Ubisoft Connect AND For Honor;
    - Turning off antivirus and firewall;
    - Opening all of my ports;
    - Re-allowing game to make changes in computer files or whatever is it called;
    - Restoring Hosts files to default;
    - Making sure I have flushed DNS;
    - Making sure I have a green NAT.

    Here is more details:
    I don't see presence of invites of my friends. They don't see mine either. Just nothing happens. It started 2 updates ago I believe. Initially, only invites of some of my friends were visible. Then, after next game launch, their invites weren't visible. Gradually, I stopped seeing every single invite. So it works like this: invites cannot be seen after game/PC re-launch I guess.

    How it worked when I switched to alt-account: neither of my invites were visible, BUT friends' invites became visible only once (then they stopped being visible after game/PC re-launch).

    Please take it into consideration, since being unable to play with my friends ruins my For Honor experience. Looking forward to having this problem solved
    Thank you.

    Same issues as OP.
    Only difference is my OS is Windows 7.
    I also run Ubi-Connect as Admin (doesn't help).
    In addition to the invitation problem I also cannot open the chat in Ubi-Connect anymore since the big chat "upgrade" about 2 weeks ago.
    I click on start-chat in my friends list and nothing happens.
    The same if i try via the general chat option at the top of Ubi-connect.

    Hey everyone, sorry to hear this has been an ongoing issue with For Honor for you. I would ensure that you have the latest version of Ubisoft Connect installed on your PC and would try out the steps SkillsGamed_TRD has posted in this thread here when inviting or accepting group invites from friends. If this doesn't help, could you please share and video clips or screenshots of the behavior you are seeing when trying to access incoming invites from other players?

    Hey! Nah, that advice didn't work. Invites are not visible at all, so providing you a screenshot isn't necessary (just nothing appears on screen, no invites in Ubi Connect/Game itself).

    Hey mercyle5.Space,

    Thanks for getting back to us. Can you provide a brief video, so we can pass it onto the team for further investigation?

    I have found a temporary solution to this problem:
    1. You need to download a version of Ubisoft Connect no higher than 10324.
    2. Completely exit the main launcher and install 10324 in a separate folder (do not launch it!).
    3. Go to the folder with the newly installed new launcher and find the file there: "version.txt"
    4. Replace "10324" with "10526".
    5. Launch the game only through this launcher. As soon as Ubisoft fixes this error, you will be able to return to the main Ubisoft Connect again.

    P. S I got the old launcher from the torrent myself. If they allow me, I will send a link to the .rar archive with the launcher here.

    Hey mate! Thanks for your solution, I was thinking about the same thing. I assume Ubi wouldn't allow us to post it here, so maybe you could give me your discord tag, so you could privately send me the link?

    I could do it later, couldn't reach the PC right now.

    Have exactly the same problem and have tried all the troubleshooting steps but nothing so far. Have managed to get on only once and play with friends since the chat update but 9/10 times chat and invites just don't show up.

    On windows 7.

    Run the game through Ubisoft Connect.

    Hey folks,

    Torrent Links are something that we wouldn't allow to be posted to the forums nor would we encourage using.

    @DirtyOsvaldo Have you opened a Support Ticket about this on our website?
