Well isn’t this a fine mess.
For those of you who don’t play AC:R on the PC, let me fill you in on something that’s happened lately. Basically, there was an update which meant that a large number of people could no longer connect to sessions or play games.
As you can imagine, this slight problem means that no one can actually play multiplayer so Ubisoft got to fixing it.
I, not knowing at the time, chose to schedule the tournament right as the fix was rolling out.
It was with trepidation and fear that I tried to connect to a test session and, to my surprise, it actually worked and I was able to play a number of games. “Excellent,” thought I, “this means that the tournament can go on without a hitch.”
Nope! There were a number of problems where people couldn’t be invited, couldn’t join the session or even disconnected during a match. This meant that for one bracket, only four people could actually enter the lobby.
However, I feel like I have to point out that there were a few people in the brackets I tried to struggle through who did not add me on Steam or respond to my friend request. Remember me saying that you should give me your Steam username so I could get in touch with you if there was an emergency or something went horribly wrong?
Something went horribly wrong.
The PC tournament is cancelled until the connectivity issues are fixed. At that time, I’ll hold new sign-ups so that we can truly see who is the Templar to be reckoned with on the PC.
