Hi all,

I just wanted to officially jump in and let you all know that we are aware of the MP issues that have been flagged up in the various forums and are currently doing our utmost to rectify them as soon as possible. We conducted an extensive multiplayer BETA test in the months prior to release, but some new problems (primarily due to the extreme extra demand on our servers at release) have surfaced. We apologise for any inconvenience and/or annoyance this may have caused and can assure you that fixes will be patched in as soon as is possible. We are ready to release the first update (with a number of major fixes) imminently. This should be out within a week. The fixes for this first update are:

-All stats should report correctly
-All avatars being flagged as ‘dishonourable cowards’ fixed. This will be removed from all existing avatars. [Incidentally, this trait has no actual effect in- game]
-Avatar cost contributing to naval battle funds fixed.
-Occasional inability to add avatar skills has been fixed.

There are a number of additional issues that we are looking at for a subsequent update. These include: fixing use of global regions for the chat channels and battle lists; fixing the leaderboard and general crashes and matchmaking problems. We will release a bigger list of these issues in due course. This second update should be available within a few weeks.

Please note that the blue screen issue that a number of users have identified has been tested extensively and we have determined that this is actually caused by old drivers or an outdated motherboard BIOS. Upgrading your BIOS is something you should be careful with, and users are individually responsible for this. Please seek advice from your computer manufacturer's technical support department on this.

As I’m sure you have all seen, there are many new features within the multiplayer – many of which involve a significant burden on our central servers. We have all worked very hard to make the multiplayer for Shogun 2 special and I can assure you that we are currently fixing the problems with a high amount of urgency. Please bear with us for the next few days/weeks while we rectify this.

Regards,

Thank god for that stat fix!

I'm still at 0/2 despite winning two today, even after waiting for the computer logo to change to their own as you suggested. Irritating to say the least.

Indeed, the updating still seems rather arbitrary and capricious. I should be something like 12-5 or 12-6, but I'm sitting at 4-1. I'm also pretty sure that I haven't been contributing points to the clan for my battles either, which is a damn shame.

I think I've lost slightly more than I've won, but when I have won it's been in a couple of key provinces.

The game is counting my battles correctly, although I have got the Dishonourable Coward trait. The only other issues I have is that the game gives me new personal bests for most men killed and lost in a battle after each game.

Well i've played 3 multiplayer battles (2 land, 1 naval) and lost all of them (good start) and the stats board doesnt show them yet. i also found it impossible to get siege battles going, and had to wait for the timer to run down before the naval battle would start.

This is my signature. Trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again.

Naval battles, what you have to do is get you and your opponent to delete both of your armies, then add each ship in turn I've found.

Fire Projecting Mangonels are also bugged. For some reason I can't use them in land battles, even though I've seen an opponent use them.

Hahaha,

You can say that again.
Utter failure of the multiplayer department. XD

RPG element, No game rule set, No battle map overview, Crap servers.

Have you ever played TW online?

Hi bakaboza, welcome
RPG element, No game rule set, No battle map overview,
When you create a game in the battle list you can speculate map and so forth, and the battle map overview is given on the loading screen, unless you're talking about something else?

And you don't like the RPG element of leading your own Daimyo and Clan into the battle? I think you might be the first!

There are some other things that are strange, too.


For instance, I have played 28 games. And the stats menu lists me as 15 and 13. BUT, according to the records on the clan page, I am 15 and 15. This is after it had previous failed to record one of my wins. So, it looks like in the process of giving me the win it never gave me a few days ago, it also added 2 losses. I'm puzzled.

Dishonourable traitor! Again!. I've never quit a battle. I've never desynced. I've had times where 'the host has left the game' but I don't understand.

Anyway, I don't think I'll take any flak online about it, but still.

XD,

Battle map overview is a 3d minimap in low resolution, rotating and showing elevation with the initial deployment of defending forces.This should show during setup where you select your army!

Multiplayer battles need to have a flexible rule set. To set which units are allowed and which are not! How the **** did they manage to forget this after 6 series and even more releases?

I don't like the RPG element !
Anyway its a nice retarded unbalancing act......

Please stop yer sad whine about stats not showing correctly, go play tetris in the arcade!
I could not care less.

And they should have put Dishonourable Ripoff on their game instead off Dishonourable under my name!

Crap server, Crap server, Crap server.

    Hi! Unfortunately I do not know what **** is meant to be, but I hope it is something nice like "boat"
    I like the RPG element.
    I do not think the game is a ripoff.
    I do not play tetris.
    You could make rules and go on normal battles instead of match-make if you want.
    I am not sure what you mean with the mini-map. You can learn what each map is like and remember the name.
    Steam servers are down rarely. Maybe it could be your internet connection?

    Anyway, Afty, wish to do the honours? Since I am unlucky and do not have Mod powers.
