Pumped by the newest hotfix release, a group of us determined to play multiplayer attempted to start a game. It took quite a while for us to come to this conclusion and a grand amount of attempts to determine. It appears that we cannot get the game to support more then 2 players at this time. During loading of each attempt peers were disconnected at or before the start of turn 1. We attempted to remove one player thinking there may be some sort of port issue with multiple users accessing from the same IP. That however did not solve the matter for us. I reduced the game size down to tiny and put all settings on the minimum. Still no luck. Thinking it could be one or another persons connection we attempted various hosts and missing each player in an attempt to load numerous players. We began reducing the count. Finally when each game was down to just 2 players we were able to load, and play games. Adding a 3rd to any variation we attempted resulted in the same peer disconnection issue we faced. My only thought is perhaps there needs to be a brush up on how the game relays information to more then one user? Maybe it was just our dumb luck, though the number of attempts would suggest otherwise. Has anyone been able to connect more then 2 users and play?
All that being said, the game is amazing and this isn't a complaint... though it was a frustrating process of attempting to play today. I love the game, my friends do as well. We just want to be able to crack heads together... and also I wish to crush and devour them but don't tell them that. in fact... forget that last part. This is not the comment your looking for.I would be interested to know if others have had any success with this yet.
