    This happens in other games when you get kicked out the room or if you're disconnected from Live.

    I was disconnected 3 times today, and played 5 games aswell :mad: But i forgot all about it when killing some Rebels!

    There does seem to be a serious issue with the multiplayer game. Looks like CoD2 all over again. Had it 2 days and have probably had more games lose connection than played.

    Got the game this morning and played single player for 1/2 hour no probs. Then played a bit of campaign with a m8 over live. played for about 20 minutes when the game and/or my 360 froze. At the time my controller was flashing at me to recharge it but I don't think that is the ptoblem as usually if a controller runs flat the game in question pauses and flashes a message up to reconnect the controller. I've played many hours on my 360 since xmas day and it is rock stable normally. After the game that locked up I played another hour of single player no problem. Maybe there is a bug which causes a lockup if the controller runs flat instead of flashing the reconnect message.

    Co-op works with max 4 peeps & team elimination with a max 6 peeps!
    Not good i know but the best you can manage until they fix it.

    Just another lazy Ubi game, if Rare can do it so well with PDZ why
    can't Ubi. I can hold 14/16 in PDZ yet only 6 in this...:mad:

    Yeah works fine with me.

    You guys gotta remember as much as pains me to say it but 256k upload just doesnt cut it.

    And i believe it kicks you out because too many people. Ie if you stay then its going to lag.... Who knows but i wouldnt call it a COD yet

    Well we was playing with Saltireone, he also has 10mb/512k

    14 People was our max, occasionally it would kick one or two out so 12 was our usual limit and it was lag free so make of it what you will. :confused:

    Fluke? I'm not suggesting that you can't get a good game. Problem is that it is so erratic that most people will give up trying. Had some cracking games but have to balance that against the hours spent frustrated...

    Ah it was like that for hours, i'm not saying anything. Kinda confusing really. Who knows.

    Its just when people find something wrong they make it heard but when it goes right noone hardly ever says anything..... know what i mean?

    I sure hope it wasn't a one-off :(

    we've been playing with this all night and found out pretty much whjat everybody else has. i managed a solid 8 player connnection for an hour or so with out problems on my 10meg/384 connection.

    found it also helps if you "lock the room" (advanced options) once you have everyone in.

    they need to sort though i was really looking forward to 16 player co-op.

    Talking with a few clan Captains has revealed these stats.

    On standard 256k up adsl lines with low lag

    4 players on campaign max
    4 players on co-op
    6 players on team elimination (7players brings terrible lag & 8 players brings kicks and lost connections)

    may vary but that will cover I guess around 60 people I guess with the captains I have spoken too and what we have expierenced.

    Needless to say I wont be orgainising any clan matches with this game till its fixed.

    Tips are turn off cross com and drones it seems to help, it got us an extra stable player in Campaign and co-op.

    Conection makes all the difference, I can host and get 4 on my connection(ZEN ping is 20ms to www.google.com) others who have a higher latency around the 50ms mark will only hold 3 players.

    Needless to say a lot of very unhappy clan memebers tonight we ended up playing PDZ for 2 hours

    I know what you mean. Trouble is I've had it 2 days and must have joined circa 60 games with a numer of different hosts. Works fine with a small number (had some great matches in the small hours) but doesn't look good for the AVF league.

    I cannot understand for the life of me the problems with this game. Do they not test things these days???

    The 360 is fast becoming a joke... the three biggest Live enabled games are plagued with problems.. PGR3 is a joke due to the car physics (too easy to spin opponents) and the lack of lobby options... COD2, well, we all know about that, and now GRAW.

    It seems its being looked at like PC games just because you can update the 360.... get the game out as quick as possible and fix it later.

    were turning out league upside down because of it. were opting for teams of 4 and not teams of 8.

    the MGC found that 8 was really our max - think i may have had 10 for a couple of minutes but that doesn't count. :)

    i think it maybe as much to do with amount of people playing. at one point last night i had 54 people on my friends list playing. i was getting game invites every 5 minutes and more voice messages that than i've ever had. But that said the box does say "2-16 player co op" so it should be possible.

    I hope that enough people are hacked off - they go and play PDZ. to ease the strain on the servers.

    is it me or are western games more buggy than the games made in the Far East?
    i think they should get fined for releasing a buggy product.

    Last night was a joke. After looking forward to this game for ages it was completely spoilt for me due to the fact we only managed about two or three full games over a four hour period:thumbsdow

    There were at least three people with 10Mb connections who tried hosting but it still seemed that 6 was the magic number...as soon as any more than that joined the room it would be 'bodies dropping all around you' as soon as the game started:(

    It really is a fantastic game on Live though and the potential is there for it be the best 360 Live experience available...if they just sort out the problems! With how long we have been waiting for the COD patch though I am not holding out much hope for this to be anytime soon.

    How the hell is the AVF GRAW League going to run now though ? All the time and effort put into it by Kopite and the fact everyone was looking forward to it seems to have been thrown out of the window in the space of one night:(

    Excellent game yet again let down by the Live side of things. Only time i had a stable game with above 8 players was when my mate hoasted with 1 meg upload, hope they bloody sort this out. Think we spent more time restarting games last night after people getting dropped,.:mad:

    For those who have not seen it there is a thread up on the offical GRAW forums inviting people to post suggestions for the patch linkage

    Like MacReady says lets hope its a bit quicker in arriving than the COD2 patch :lease:
