View Full Version : Host closed the game session?

I've yet to play a whole Fragile Alliance match because of this. What's up with it?

I'm assuming it's the sort of thing where the match is hosted by one of the players, and when they leave, it ends the game for everyone, right? Shouldn't there be some sort of host migration set up? :(

Unfortunately, it's the same as the first game. Quitting was a major problem and there were no consequences for the quitters. I'm not sure if there will be consequences in the sequel.

Not ONE whole match! WOW.... Thats sucks. I know I probobly get shanked for saying this but.... It should be like MW2! NOW WAIT WAIT, before you eat, me let me explain:
- In MW2 when the host leaves it picks a new host. Preferably one who has the best connection.

No one should be able to close the game down, if some one quits it should start looking for a new host.

I agree. It's really annoying and discouraging. The whole game shouldn't be closed just because the host has a bad connection. Or is just a bad sport.

Couldn't another player just be made the new host, and the game continues?

Apart from that issue, the rest of the game was great! :)

EDIT: I still haven't been able to get a whole session in yet, because of the hosts quitting. :(

This is going to sound stupid coming from someone who isn't really a multiplayer gamer , but , why don't the game Host itself sessions ? like it creates all kinds of sessions with all the different maps and types , and then all gamers has to do is join in the table , and when its full the game begins , and another session will be hosted by the game's server itself ...

Is this not possible ? ...

Yep. That's another possibility.

That's my favouite thing about MW2, It's just straight into a game ASAP, no readying up and a new host is found when necessary.

C'mon Eidos, let's just assemble the crew and get on with it.

Doesn't it annoy you when someone else quits a match mid game , forcing everyone to leave as well ? ...

We're not being babies. This is a perfectly reasonable forum.

You're all welcome to stay in my lobby when you see me host. I never quit early. Not in the first game, not in this demo and not in the full game. I'm a gamer, not a crybaby. So you can enjoy the whole match when I host.

That's because you like to 'get close' to people more than they ever wanted , isn't it ? ...

Don't get your hopes up, Grievous.

Anywya , even you can't satisfy all the people who wishes to play with a host that never quits , so the problem still persists ...

At least I'm helping out. Now if more people would do the same...

I would be doing the same, but I don't think I'd be able to commit myself to all those hours.

That's the thing , there'll never be enough ...

The best thing to have is that the game hosts matches itself , twenty four seven ...

I hope one of the devs is reading this. Really want this to get fixed up.

GrievousOdyssey

The game is set to release in less than two months ... you think they will have enough time to fix this ? ...

Zidrien
2nd Jul 2010, 11:30
Well, they can always bring out updates after it's released, can't they?

I'd imagine IO would. Aren't they trying to redeem K&L?

Less bugs and trophies? Isn't that a profit?

When ever i see the host get betrayed, he/she quits!

I liked how when there are breaks after each round, you can not quit (of course if you turn your xbox off you can) but you have to carry on.

This should be an option, you can not quit untill the game is over.

By the way , when the host quits and ends the match , are the scores saveguarded to the leaderboards or do you absolutely have to finish all rounds for the score to register ? ...

Bevacur

I never noticed a score. You only get cash for that specific game, once that game is over you have to get cash from scratch.

I don't think there is a leaderboard.

It was really annoying, i happened to have..err..my finger slipped and happened to kill a guy with a ton of cash. This guy also happens to betray someone, he dies so he is the only one i can hear.

He was singing how he enjoyed sucking pork < this was his actual words then was changed to ***** through out the whole game.

Then he just started screaming gay's for the last 3-4 mins.

I finished my 1st match without a problem. I guess this was because I was the host and I never quit.

I wasn't able to join any games where I wasn't the host. It seems like the hosts gets impatient and closes the lobby before enough people join.

Either that, or the host is getting disconnected.
