After going through Monks pdf on opening some things up on the router, I immediately played 2 games with at least 4 people all the way to the end, no one got kicked!
There were troubles with people coming in and not connecting, so it took maybe 15 minutes, give or take, to get a game started. But it definitely seems to have helped. However the patch may have had a part in a slightly improved online experience. Who knows, but that you Monk.
Monk helped me out only to get taken down last night!
