Aussies - Can you get into a game??

G'day all, before I update and get my hopes up, have any of us Aussies managed to get into a game?

It's been literally over two months since I have been able to play online, and after reading some of the reports in the Ping Sites thread . . . . let's just say I'm concerned that it hasn't fixed anything for us other than the label sticking in the UI.

I await your comments patiently, and look forward to a 'sense of pride and achievement'

  • I'm in Melbourne on Xbox One and I can get into GA and HvV with no problem.
    Xbox Gamertag: Brad Cafe
  • I might try it now
    Ps4
  • Yea tried last night after the patch, could find both GA and HvV. It appears the server switch issue has been fixed too.
  • No
    1 person in lobby
  • Yea
    Left a lobby
    Then tried again and in a full 40 player game

    Switch to US-OREGON and you will always get games. A little lag is better than empty lobbies.
  • It fixed itself for me about 2 weeks ago now, after a month of not being able to play. Just completely randomly fixed itself like nothing had ever happened.

  • I'm in Adelaide, and can find games of GA and HvV no problems (occassionally Starfighter Assault too) but have not been able to find any games of Blast, Strike, Extraction or Hero Starfighters for a while now - surely those modes have at least 1 lobby at any one time?

    I see your name pop up in lobbies for me ALL the time Moondyne, , usually on the other team where we have some good tussles. I'm always looking for more people to party up with!
  • Are any of you playing on the actual Australian server? Couldn't find any matches on the Australian Server last night after the update, but could easily get into games on the Virginian Server.

  • at first i couldn't and posted about it in the ping issue thread. but then i switched my ping site back to sydney manually and then it seemed fine as long as i chose the CW tile. when i went through the normal assault path i got empty lobbies.

    I was on after midnight, so maybe it had more to do with no one playing on the server, rather than being able to b connected to it.
  • i played 9 to maybe midnight with the ping site set to sydney.

    will be on tonight at around 9 aest

  • As a PC user, I can assure people that the Default Ping Server Bug is fixed. It was the evry first thjing I looked at once I'd downloaded the patch.

    That said as someone who mainly plays Starfighter Assault, there rarely ever seems to be a game of it going on our server these days. Those of us who play it spend time on the US Viriginia Server or the german server as we always seem to be able to finjd a game on one of those two.

    GA and H v V on the Australian Server seem to be ok to find a game, but the rest? I dunno.

    Hi all,
    Hi everyone,
    The Ping site issue has been fixed in the latest update. This means that your selection will now properly save.

  • on PC:

    1. Select AU
    2. Join game, empty lobby
    3. Check server - South Africa
    4. Select AU
    5. Join game, empty lobby
    6. Check server - Hong Kong
    7. Rinse repeat

    Any ideas why I'm being sent to Hong Kong and South Africa?
  • no, but raise it in the ping issue thread.. i know that there's still issues with that and they're asking for more information.
  • actually although admitting the ping issue probably aint fixed that thread is closed. try posting in the 1066 error one. unless lots of noise is made nothing will get done.

    I'm in, playing Strike again.
  • I just had a heap of GA matches
  • Ok, I might give it a go this afternoon.

    Hoping to get into my first GA game in over 2 months ...........

    What a horrible thing to type.
  • I've been playing matches in Aus servers the entire time the ping issues were going. Not sure I understand why people weren't?

    The Default Ping Server bug occurred in teh patch prior to this one. If you changed to an overssaes based server to find a game, when you tried to go back to your default server, after setting it to "Aus" it would instead set you on either the UAE or South Africa server. So if you never treied going to an overseas server then you would not have gotten it.

    That's the thing, I understand that. Would go overseas and always have it default back to Japan when I tried Aus again. Would just reset it buy joining then quiting and bam, back in Aus servers until the next time going to overseas servers. Did nobody do this?

    Yes I did. I helped work out the problem, and workedf out a couple of work arounds which got me backl to Australia too. Problem is many people didn't read the bugs forum so didn't know about it.

    There's only so many times you can play the same 2 maps

    That's the other thing, they gave us instructions how to fix it which involved disconnecting from the servers manually and when you reconnect it should default back to the closest. Something like that.
    I never used this method as I found something that worked which didn't involve getting up to unplug my Ethernet cable haha. But this proves that there was multiple methods to fix the problem, one was posted on the top of the forums.
    Don't mean to be the devils advocate but it's people's own fault for not taking the initiative to fix their problem in this situation (yes a situation we shouldn't be in)
