No Online Games?

Is anyone else having trouble finding online matches? I only ever join campaign games when I choose quick match, and if I search for either ranked or player matches in any of the competitive game modes (king of the hill etc), I never find a game. I've tried hosting games and sat there for 5 minutes with no-one joining.

I thought with this game having just come out and the seeming popularity of it there would be loads of online games, but I just can't find one :/

It only takes a few moments for me to find players. The ranked matches tend to have very little activity, despite the leaderboard support. I would suggest bringing a friend to the mix, that will bring the players needed down to two.

On average, when I host, I get players in about ten to twenty seconds.

It also heavily depends on the gametype. Some are obviously more popular than others. The soul snatch game seems to be the most popular. If you need the achievement you can play solo against bots. Otherwise I know what you mean. For a highly anticipated new game the servers are quite empty. Just give the game some time for more people to buy it and finish the single player.

It seems to depend on the game type. Some of them dont seem to be as popular as others.

However, sometimes i have hosted and had people join instantly. Other times i have waited quite a while. Could just be a lot of people want to complete single player before hopping into the multiplayer.

My girlfriend and I hosted all day, people continuously rage quit until no one was left to play us. It's annoying!

Found no online games so far when I've tried and no luck with hosting

Mainly tried to get quick match to see if the Viral Achievement would pop!

I have trouble as well w/ most of them, especially ranked matches, but luckily if your doing this solely for the achievement it can be done local and not over live as well. The only thing online is probably trading w/ ten different people.

I have found no ranked games at all, and player match has some players. I usually just use quick match, most of the gametypes are fun.

I think the multiplayer can be hit or miss and the later in the day the harder it can be to get a game that has been my experience however most games I get into everyone is annoying and just goes to the shop I just want to play there should be a way that blocks the shop.

I have exaclty the same problem.

Playing the game about 2 Weeks now here and there...when I try ranking I never find a game or players....a pity such a great game seems already dead.

Now that this game will be free in July, maybe more people will join online than ever before.
