Like, I had next to no trouble connecting to Skirmish ever since release, and like, I downloaded the patch last night man, and now I can't get skirmish or Pantheon going, and like, I am so upset and going to demand a refund!

 

I mean, like, how stupid can you be to, like, break, like, a working game?!  The netcode was, like, perfect dude, and now it's, like, crap duuuude.  And I am so upset, dude, that I'm, like, not even gonna wait for another patch to, like, fix the problems, duuuude.

Ron, how many times have I told you not to keep pills on your night stand?

Well, sadly that is just bad luck for you. There were a great bunch of people out there who couldn't play online at all. The devs worked hard and fast to  solve the problem and with this patch the fixed the problems of very many people, so they did a good job. You both are the first players I heard of that got this problem now. Sure it would be better if you could still play, but they didn't do this intentionally. Try to do it like the people who couldn't play online until now - play singleplayer.

ViViD, I was making a joke.

 

Yes, my connection is broken now (and I'm probably going to scream holy hell next time I can bend the Frogboy's ears about it) but I'm not actually upset.  Shit happens, and I know SD is going to fix this... "eventually"...  They did their best to fix things for everyone, and something slipped through the cracks.  Honestly, it just doesn't bother me the way it seems to bother some people, so I made a joke out of it.

 

What scares me is people who didn't get that I was making a joke out of the 'utter fail' my efforts to connect to skirmish / pantheon have turned into!

With all the *ahum* idiots *ahum* that roam this planet, nothing really suprises us any more.. It wasnt all that obvious.. Unless people know you I suppose

Does Frogboy know what you are doing with his ears!?!??

Player from Europe here, patch didnt fix/improve my connection problem.

Instead of 'Colonel_Jessep is not connected to anybody yet' it says 'trying to establish connection' or something like that.

Well, maybe when the proxies go up.

Good luck guys, GL Stardock, hope you can fix it for all of us soon. *sniff*
