First let me say I love the game. And I really appreciate all the hard work and effort you are putting into fixing this as quickly as possible. Can't wait til the kinks are ironed out so I can get all my friend hooked
I agree with ThePanic71. Seems like there are two types of users still. Ones that connect immediately now (where before it was much slower) but there are still users that can't connect to anyone it seems.
I've been very fortunate in that for the most part multiplayer has just worked for me, I've got ports forwarded and I'm on a good solid net connection and a decent computer. However after this last patch (2nd on the 14th) I've had the hardest time connecting to date. I tried to join a skirmish probably 5 times before it finally let me into a game. The first 4 times were all 2v2 matchups according to the connection info and each time there was one person noone seemed to be able to connect to, so it'd drop back to the demigod selection screen with a message about matchup failed.
And I know you didn't ask about connectivity once inside the game, but I ran into a HUGE problem tonight once I finally got into a skirmish. A few minutes into the game my partner rage quit (thank goodness he was horrible, AI was better). From that point forward I was getting a Desync error/warning popup every 2-5 seconds. Talk about infuriating.
I confirmed that the player on the other team was getting the same message. The game was almost unplayable, because even though the message would pop up and take focus the game would continue in the background. You'd click okay and it'd go away, but then it'd pop up in a few more seconds. To make matters worse about 20% of the time if you were in the middle of targeting a skill you'd activated you wouldn't have a mouse cursor, so it made clicking on the okay button with an invisible mouse REALLY fun.
Let me know if you want/need more details. Otherwise keep up the good work, and keep up the awesome posts letting us know how things are progressing!
