Xbox One Updated! - Patch Notes and Update on Matchmaking

66 posts in this topic

Game was patched for XBox ONE today.

So far it works.

Still using peer to peer hosting and not the dedicated servers that were promised.

But it's letting people play the game instead of staring longingly at the menu.

Got a few matches in earlier.

Let's hope it keeps up.

Any crashes yet?

There was a crash on one of my 4 games.

We all got in the car... a first for me, was a passenger.

Then got dumped.

Because of Peer to Peer hosting it could have just been a grumpy host annoyed they got nicked.

Quick play works but I get put in a lobby by myself a lot. I just exit, try again, and about 2-3 more trys i'm in a full lobby. Its okay for now.

No dedicated servers is the real kick in the nuts.

Are they working towards the Dedicated Servers?

I don't mind baby steps as long as they are in the right direction.

They've barely gotten the game working correctly on Console but at least Quick Match is playable now.

So i'm not going to be upset if they don't have Dedicated XBox Servers up by Tuesday.

As long as I know they are working towards their promise.

yeah, that's the problem though :/ they refuse to comment on anything related to dedicated servers for consoles.

As much as I appreciate the so-so fix on quick matches, getting stuck into a your own lobby while joining a quick match gets old. If I wanted to start my own lobby I would have created a party.   It doesn't help that some times while exiting this solo lobby the game goes into a freeze that requires me to eit the game, quit it and then restart it.

Well, post-patch seems to be this now:

1. Quick Play just means starting your own lobby, apparently

2. Quick Play hosts quit 50% of the time

3. Surviving as a counselor is waaaay easier now. My survival rate went from maybe 1 out of 10 to 5 out of 10, immediately after the patch update.

4. Killing everyone as Jason is much, much harder now (at least, it seems so -- only gotten to play as Jason about 4 times since the patch, out of dozens of games)

5. You'll be lucky to get 2 solid games out of 5, unless you get very lucky and manage to join a lobby full of good players (but that takes persistence and luck, unless you have your own group you regularly play with)

My experience has been much better. 

Sometimes I'm the host and I don't mind because I'm not gonna quit out.

Other games have been alright.

It's gone from being completely broken to "working most of the time".

That's not ideal but it's progress in the right direction.

"Working most of the time" is fine for me as long as they keep improving.

The game is fine.  It's harder to kill everyone in the game when some of them are miles ahead and know what they're doing  but so what.

It's still a learning experience for Jasons and Counsellors alike.

Well, today I put in 2 hours. Tried Quick Play 10 times, and 8 of the times I wound up in a lobby by myself, and twice with 2 other people (but closed out soon after).

Went and joined private matches. Got 5 matches total that went all the way to the game (many other attempts but the games never materialized, either because people kept leaving, the host left, etc), but in 2 of those 5 games, the hosts quit (both around the 10-minute mark). In 2 others I wound up as Jason, but my Morph didn't work (well, technically it worked, but the red dot on the map was missing), so those were no fun (even though in one of them I still managed to kill 6/8).

Also between each match, all of my counselor and Jason perks kept vanishing, so I had to keep going back in and re-selecting for all my counselors and each version of Jason.

So in 2 hours, I had 1 solid, error-free game that lasted about 15 minutes (of which I think I was actually playing for about 8 minutes).

I'm still experiencing a lot of crashing back to the dashboard and randomly getting disconnected. Makes it kinda hard to get XP or level up when you don't get rewarded until the end of the match.... That being said, this is an amazingly fun game even with the little minor knocks.

They know they fucked up plain and simple.  It's the simple avoidance game.

Seems they fixed Quick Play simply taking you to a lobby by yourself! Yeah, now it searches for rooms for about a minute before taking you back to the Main Menu!

EDIT TO ADD: Oh, spoke too soon. Lonely lobby again.
