IIRC services like Gamespy aren't servers that host your game, they just act as matchmakers, the person that clicks 'create game' is usually the host.

I think you are right.. Reading up on the COH forums, they mention "When playing Multiplayer, it is best that those with the fastest PC and the most ram choose to host.".

It's a combination of a server/client and peer to peer system.  If the host drops mid game the system can still recover by shifting the absolute host information.  But, it's still primarily peer to peer because, as we all know, one player with a bad connection in the game can slow it down for everyone.  By its nature, server/client setups do not do this.

Rumour has it that they will be adding in the Skirmish mode in the next patch.  I really hope so.  I finally got into a gmae the other night, and it was SOOOOOO choppy.  It looked like video settings.  Which is Odd.  I can run oblivion with all the settings maxed, and I can run WOW, no issues.  (Gefore 6800gt) but I couldnt run MoC in the lowest setting?  Maybe some tweaks are necessary?

So this is still pretty unplayable I'm taking it?  I haven't tried the beta this week yet.

unless it just happened to be actual lag from the person I was playing with.  I really dont know.  I have yet to be given access to the beta forums.  I have access to the regular ones, and its been two weeks since I requested access.

this is WAY messier than Dawn of War was.

Different companies..

This beta is a mess, I uninstalled it, completely unplayable.

I had some high hopes for this, but Namco, if thats whos running this beta, really needs to address some serious issues.  I understand its a Beta, and not a demo.  It looks to me though, like they bit off more than they could chew.

I am not sure when they are planning on releasing this, but with the condition its in now.  I cant see it being soon.  I am hoping for another patch soon as well.

Rumour has it that they WILL add the skirmish mode, in the next patch.  Which should at least some people get to test units and such.

What a collosal dissapointment this sounds like. And this was one of my most anticipated games this year. Tell me please-is this just typical gamespy is broken bullshit, or is the game itself not good-or the mechanics are flawed? If its just that you cant get games going-ok, so the net code isnt great and Gamespy we all know blows-but at least the game itself might still be excellent. So which is it?

Right now, from what I have seen it looks to be Gamespy.  BUT.  From reading the forums it seems that things are not working right in game, DUE to lack of peoples ability to play.

You can read all this on thier open forum, at the MoC website.

I have heard there have been patches, but Vileplanet doesn't show any beta patches.

Anyone know exactly where to find the fixes so I can actually "Try" to help with the beta?  The guys running the show for this game seem rather clueless about how betas work.

Probably to obvious to help, but did you check their forums, or does the game self-patch?  I thought there was a beta forum dedicated to it?  I can't try until my new system arrives (again...), but I'm hopeful some of you can get on.

No autopatcher, I tried to access the forums only to have my key "Denied" for some reason.  They certainly aren't making easy like the folks over at Company of Heroes did!

the game auto patches when I try and log into the multiplayer.  I have the current patch, but since I have yet to be given access to the beta forum, i dont see why I should really bother.  They are removing posts by people in the MAIN forum, when they post something yet, not giving those same people access to the beta only forum.

Argh, I tried to "Kick" it to autopatch but it just wouldn't when I log in Multiplayer.. I am losing any remaining patience I have had with this game.  I think they underestimated the Warhammer fanbase or something.

Pretty bad.  I'm still hopefull this will turn into a good game though.  Certainly enough history and variety for them to base the game on.  I would have liked them to use a varient of the Total War engine, especially the latest one if it lives up to some of the shots I've seen.

Any idea when a skirmish mode might be added to the beta?  At least people could see the game then, as opposed to being blocked online.

Wow.  today, I check the forums for this, and low and behold, I FINALLY have access to the closed beta forum.  So I might actually be able to test this game now.

i have yet to actually b able to play a ame of this in the beta.  From what it sounds like on the forums though.  Which appear to almost not even be moderated anymore.  Its a wash.  the mechanics are messed up.  The builder is messed up.

They have announced a HUGE patch coming soon, so maybe they will take some of the hints that people gave who COULD play the beta, and fix some of the problems.

It looks like they did what a lot of companies do.  they got a liscence simply for the look of something, then just did whatever they wanted with the actual game.  Apparently you can have a army of ONE hero, fully deck him out, and he will lay waste to entire armies fielded against him.  From what I gather, you just select your army, and throw it at the other pseron.  thats the strat...frown

Maybe they should've spent a little less $ on the excellent trailer, and more on the development side?  Regardless of how the game turns out, that was one of the best trailers I've seen in recent memory. 

Count me as another who was really looking forward to this game, but now has major reservations based on the beta.

Release date has now been pushed back for this title.  Hopefully Beta testers will see at least one more patch.
