MANY GAMERS ON-LINE: I'M NOT ABLE TO PLAY :-(( Sun, 19 June 2011 21:39
After a long absence due to study, some minutes ago I I've tried playing but I wasn't able because the connection fell continuosly. There were 140 players: maybe this is the reason?
It seemed like when I tried to participate to the test "LET'S BREAK THE SERVERS!": for 2 times I stayed connected for 1 hour but I couldn't play because everything was very slow (with about 80 players).
Please, can you tell me if the problem is the great number of players or if the problem is just my (6 years old) PC or my internet key (28.4)?
Anyway, I'm very happy that M44 ONLINE is growing in popularity!!!
Bye Bye!

I've had the experience of VERY slow computers at work - and they are about 5 years old, IIRC.
I don't think it has anything to do with the number of players on the servers (at least not at the level that there is now).

Hope you solve it.

I have to agree with Nygaard...the DoW servers haven't seemed to have any trouble with lots of players. You might look at updating some things on your current computer and starting to save for a new one! Smile

You really need a stable Internet connection. And I agree your PC might be a bit old.

Maybe it is time to do another test like the "Chaaaarge" ?
That is to make an appointment wilt all players to test the server(s) with many, many players on it at the same time.
Knowing that there are much more players now than last time we "chaaaaaarged" ...

Just my input:
my laptop computer - that I use to connect to the internet - sucks. It plays M44 on-line, providing an average experience; it drags a bit, especially when there are animations (when switching from main board to battle report, when displaying casualty animations, when choosing between 2 cards after playing a recon card, etc).

I never observed any difference in performance related with the number of players on-line, and I have had between 20 and 130, give or take.

As far as I can tell, DoW servers have been perfect.

I must say that for the last two days I'm unable to play, not solo games and not multiplayer, mind you I got an i7 with a broadband Internet connection.

Have you sent any log files in with a Bug Report? You can find a link to the form in my signature.

The Bug Report Form is going to be the fastest way for the development team to identify and help fix the problem you're running into. Cool
