Looks like this week is going to be another "hang out and chat" session. Accoding to the latest update (#14) from CIG, the main culprit of the multiplayer problems is the "party service module", which is responsible for grouping people into matches. They are asking people to avoid private matches until it's fixed since those are more likely to cause the module to become overloaded.

Wanted to update you that we discovered a major culprit in our multiplayer matchmaking system: the party service module.

As a test, we're recommending that players avoid using the party system to join matches with friend for this weekend.

We've got a lot of investigation to do in order to fix this; it isn't work that will happen over the weekend. When the party service is overloaded, it doesn't speak to the other modules nor back to the client, and as the larger party service is a required component of keeping multiplayer online (currently all multiplayer traffic flows at some point through it), it's not a module that we can simply disable. It touches several different systems, all of which will also need to be investigated.

Thanks Eris.

I think I can probably manage to talk to people. :P :D

On the plus side this has pushed their backend to it's limits and has highlighted many issues and bugs they didn't know they had. By the time they have all these problems fixed we should have a much more robust and stable system in place.

We've managed to get some matches rolling during the week.

At the current time it's better to load up a group in a public match. We have had a couple of instances where people crashed out and we received some pubbers in return. Wasn't a good trade so we killed the session and went back to match selection. The second time it worked fine.

I had a feeling the party system would be an issue since it has to search for room for the party at hand and that must take a lot more time...

It is good they are getting this now before FPS because it will explode once that action gets out. :P

Ha, yeah. They think they had to wind up servers for 1.1, wait until the FPS goes live. XD

I'll probably be on around the same time. But the clocks change tomorrow, so not sure if UK time will be midnight or 1 am now. :)

Sorry I disappeared so abruptly last night (Before most of you were online actually :D ), but I had a migraine start and needed to get off the PC quickly.
