It appears as though there servers a struggling with the early swarm of players trying to play the game which isn't really exceptable as they should have been ready for this. What good is a multi-player only game if it is unplayable? I know it's just come out so things might get better, but I doubt I will get the full game untill they sort it out. I'm downloading the trial now.

Welcome to xbox360ACHIEVEMENTS where people whore achievements.

The biggest waste of money however is that he can get a cheap old game with 1000gs for the same price as a normal priced arcade title.

Nice to hear that EAs servers still sucks ass! good job

It wouldnt be so bad, but the Official BF1943 Site said "the Servers are ready"!

I think not!

I am getting major lag but I am not that bothered. I can play some other games and Thursday I have got work so by Friday it should be up and running to a great standard like Bad Company is now, no lag what so ever. Hopefully.

Hmm...

Kind of disheartening, as I was hoping to jump right into this tonight after work. This is exactly how Bad Company worked out, and consequently, I didn't play it for months. :(

Ridiculous Lag! Thank god for trials! Although i wouldn't mind having my trial time back when the lag gets fixed (if ever). It was only a few weeks ago that i picked up Bad Company for 9 pounds anyway, so i am not going to be too fussed about missing out on this. Should the lag be fixed however then i will buy it, if not, my points will be saved for Serious Sam HD when that drops or to buy some more Fallout DLC. I will give this game a few days to fix itself.

the glasses should be avalible for free for your avatar at somepoint, the hat is off the avatar marketplace, and my shirt is an award for being in the xbox 360 summer preview beta.

Yeah the lag is really bad but it was the same for Bad Company which went away, I think the games great, can't wait for the lagg to go away so I can fully enjoy the game with friends.

Its dissapointing but hopefully this will be sorted pretty soon. What is the craic with the trial? As a multiplayer only game. How much of a trial is it and is it not possible that it could it be on a different server so that the people who have forked out money and 1200 points are on a better server?

Double2Seven
07-08-2009, 11:53 AM
They must fix the Lag, i wont buy a multiplayer only game if i get lagging all the time, ive heard the developers at e3 saying they had lag problems , but thats just because they were playing against overseas oponents in Romenia and Sweden.

How are european servers doing ?They have separate servers, some of my friends here in Europe are not reporting to much lag....

How does the demo works ?Is it time limited ?Do we have acess to all veicules ?

Well the trial is 30 minutes only and it was a complete lagfest. My friend bought the game straight away and said even the tutorial was really laggy and almost unplayable.

This is a truly fun game, my friend and I had no problem for about 6 or 7 games and then the lag just hit us like a brick wall. Its just everyone playing on all the servers at once, I'm sure there are ridiculous amounts of people trying to play at once, just let it pass.

I had some issues while on a 8mb line at a friends. Im on a 100mb line at home and its smooth. I think it might be EA's servers but hopefully they should sort it out in a few hours.

Lag was horrible for the first hour of play for me, then my mates found a none-lag match, and we have been in that for about 3 hours now lag free.

07-08-2009, 01:52 PM
Bad Company managed to sort out its lag after a while. Dice can do online games well. After the surge of new players trying it out, it will balance out I'm sure, and be really good. I'm looking forward to trying it out later, but will maybe wait until its less laggy by the sounds of it, before I really get into it.

I was about to say this too, Also I Gordon Van Dyke has put a post up about working a 24hr day today. So the dev team know what to expect and are ready to start fixing. But If they knew then maybe a big beta test would of been better maybe?

yeah horrible lag. plus the game freezes my xbox and screen goes black in places. i think they released this a bit too soon. I think i might wait to buy it untill they fix it first.

Guys you just gotta think though it is the end of school time now sooo there will be 1000's of kids dowloading it right now the servers can probly cope with the ammount of people playing just not with people downloading to :(

but dont worry by the week end when everybody has this game it will be allllllllllllllllllllll right giddy ;)

For what, expressing himself about his experience playing the game? That's stupid, don't matter his posts, he ain't talking shit about someone or the site.

Game is ridiculous right now. Can't connect to a game cause the servers are full. If you get in to a game it might be laggy as hell and you can't play a PRIVATE game without 12 people. It's stupid

from http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=2138472#post2138472

*** This thread got closed as i was typing this out, so i found this as the closest relevant topic ***

If he cant learn to control himself, then he shouldn't be posting on a forum like this. Not with that sort of language. Id like to remind you to go take a look at the topic title.

I have no problems with people "expressing" themselves, but its in the manner they do it publicaly. Ofcourse thats just my take. I know for sure that he wouldn't last more than 10 minutes without a warning with that sort of language on many other forums i regularly visit.

As for the game being ridiculous, the sooner people get used to the idea that EA more often than not fail on epic proportions on the release date of nearly all their games, the better everybody will be and the less rubbish time wasting topics like this we will have. As a developer, EA are not too bad, but as a Producer, they are terrible. They set unrealistic targets to the development companies and more often than not the product (in this case BF1943) is released earlier and full of problems. too list a few games in the Battlefield series this has happened too.

Battlefield Vietnam *Redux - Re-release*
Battlefied 2
Battlefield 2142
Battlefield Heroes
Battlefield Bad Company

and now... Battlefield 1943.

I can't comment on Modern Combat as i have never played it, so i am unable to assess wether it was plagued with problems. Battlefield 1942 was the only Battlefield game as that i can remember that their was no "outstanding" issues on release, just a few glitches/bugs (like the superman glitch from the windmill), which did eventually get fixed.

Also, as ive read on Twitter and elsewhere on this website, the issue regarding the Lag is not actually due to the game or the servers, its down to Paket loss which they are trying to create a fix to circumvent the issue.

So, settle down son. Stop crying that the game isnt running well as it could, you have not "lost" any money. All you have lost is a little time, which is hardly something to split hairs over. Impatient little buggers.

I agree;)

For people with doubts wait till problems are resolved , and then try out the game, and see if its worth it.

Its frustating for the people that already payed for the game, but they will be working 24 hours to fix the data packet loss.

Hopefully in a few days or maybe even hours, all problems should be much less severe and we all can enjoy the game.

From EA FORUM :
"Good News, the game is incredibly successful beyond even my expectations. We have reached server capacity, but the bad news about this now some people can't join unless someone leaves. But don't worry, we are adding more servers ASAP to Xbox and in preparation PS3 that should start going up ASAP with priority on Xbox 360.

We have also isolated the issue and improving until we have close to 0 packet loss.

Please keep an eye here for updates.

Update#1: We are adding new servers, this may cause some disconnection from now until 17:30.

I've played around 10-15 matches so far and have yet to run into any of this lag. I dunno, perhaps i'm just lucky *touch wood*, but DICE have said on their twitter that European players will experience some lag problems but are working on a fix this very second. The game has only been out for a few hours, give it a chance guys. =)

Awesome game though, especially in a room with 23 other friends!

I had pretty bad lag when I tried to play in the one match I got into so I am not going to play it again until later today after they have had a chance to fix the problems with lag/packet loss/whatever else is wrong. I tried to tutorial and it was fine but I know that BC was laggy at first but I know they did fix it so can't wait for this to be fixed.

How many games on Xbox live have servers? Just as few right? And games with servers on xbox live are laggy right? Take L4D for example. I don't think xbl should have servers. It needs to be peer to peer. I could be wrong but games with servers are always laggy for me.

I was one of the first to DL the game I think. It was amazing for the first hour or two, then the games became shit when people started waking up.

Don't worry, its amazing if you can get a lag free game, just wait for them to sort out the server troubles.
