Yeah, I had some trouble with it, so I just got off. I'm guessing it's the coding. These guys aren't very strong at internet coding.

I thought i was the only one.

So we are waiting for a patch, huh?

Fraid not. I've just played locally. And hot damn the game is fun.

Got my green knight to 19. Really liking it. Sadly they don't let guests sign in when you do local MP. So any achievements they get. You don't get. :/ Oh well.

I played 1 game and a little into it the game said everyone has left then tried to join another but it could not find no one or if I did then it would freeze when the game starts. People wanted this game so bad and now we have to wait for an update >_> Atleast there's the fun Single Player :D :(

I've managed to get a few games in. Won a few. But most times there's connection problems.

I was in a 4 player game, but all a sudden, it froze blacked out and i had to turn it off n back on again. The same happened with the other 3 players :S

yeah I am having tons of problems with online multiplayer too :( It constantly freezes up either when I search for games or when I join any. Oh well, guess I'll start building up my character until they fix it or until some friends come over to play multiplayer.

Yeah, it says "you've lost your xbox live connection" and all that. I've connected to several "all you can quaff" matches, and one arena match.. But people press x and y way too damn fast.

It's a shame; I've had no problems when playing with just one other person, but as soon as others join it all seems to start going wrong.

I'm on the same boat with you guys, problems with multiplayer all morning, shouldn't be an issue on a 1200 pointer. Just my two cents though.

Exactly, and especially for how long we've been waiting for this game to come out, this problem should have easily been seen while testing. Unless they had to "rush" it out for that Summer of XBLA they've been promoting on XBL.

Regardless of this disappointing problem it is an awesome game none the less and hopefully they'll have it fixed in an update within a matter of days.

The Behemoth is only a team of seven people though. It's gotta be harder for them to test a game with the same level of scrutiny as say, Bungie or Activision.

They probably tried harder than Bethesda though.

I've managed to make it into a few co-op games but it seems like 2 or sometimes all 3 of the other players get kicked out pretty quick. Good to know it's not just happening on my end.

I've had alot of problems while trying to do co-op.
First we could all get in the lobby, then it kicked us all. Then when I tried hosting, it would kick 2 people leaving just me and someone else. Then it ended the game only after we had beat the first boss. :(
Hope Behemoth fix this soon, I'm stuck with single player till they do, which is okay, but one of the main reasons I bought it was epic 4 player co-op.

I see where you're coming from, but we're not talking about let's say a glitch that's hard to find and happens to only 1 in 10 people. The problem is the multiplayer which is one of the main features that should have been tested, it doesn't need to be tested with the "scrutiny" as Bungie or Activision to figure out there's a problem man. Right off the bat quick match and custom match have been problematic. I figured that out in 10 seconds of playing the game because the first thing I did was Xbox Live > Quick Match. No go? Xbox Live > Custom match. That's weird, Custom match is telling me that the game is no longer available? but I haven't even selected a game yet!

15$ isn't a lot of money to pay, but the majority of the games on the arcade are 800 points, excluding retro classics. So when you price your game above the majority it should be damn good ( see Braid's excellent example. ) and in perfect working order seeing as how I haven't even been able to complete an online game, out of the many times I have tried connecting I haven't gotten past level 1 without the game kicking everyone out. If you ordered a 30$ steak in a restaurant and got the quality of a big mac, You wouldn't think hey only 7 chefs in the kitchen, cut em some slack.

Know what I mean Jelly bean?

Same here only being able to connect once in a quaf match.

For a game that has its major selling point to be multi-player this is a big fook up.

They could be using turbo controllers. I haven't played online but tried once solo with my turbo pad and beat the computers before they finished one block.

I haven't had a whole lot of problems getting matches. Maybe thats because I am hosting a lot of them. I already got the all you can quaff achievement. Funny thing is is that I got it at 15 wins, not 20...

its a fun game and actually worth 1200 but
online is stuffed and they should offer refunds.

I've had not problems when playing online with only 1 other friend, but anything more than that and we haven't gotten through a single level...which sucks...

But, this game is still really really fun, so if/when they fix the multiplayer, I'll get the 4 player achievements and rock out.
