    Empty Servers?

    Post by Falls on Tue Jan 11, 2011 5:11 pm

    So, at least for the last couple weeks, I've been getting rather bored with Vietnam and figured I'd go back to vanilla, but 90% of the time, there's never any full servers-- no wait, not even any populated servers. Just now, during peak gaming time in the states, I literally just entered 6 different empty servers, all on diff maps, diff game modes, etc. Freaking ridiculous.

    Oh, look....black ops.

    Anyone else been having this problem?

    Check your internet connection with your ISP Falls.

    Slow internet = Emptier games.

    I don't think I've ever joined an empty game, to be honest...

    Hmmmm....

    So maybe my internet is sucking right now then? 'Cause I played for HOURS today on Operation Hastings, just me alone attacking a single defender....

    Been finding similar situations lately whenever I go on. Another thing that has never happened to me before - when I go to load in on a friend's game (either they invited me or I joined session in progress) I end up in a 'frozen' load screen that never loads. I say 'frozen' but that little swirly circle loading thingy is still spinning in the lower corner. It's like I'm stuck in some sort of 'perma-lag' and can never catch up....

    I've only managed to play lately by not joining anyone - just starting games alone. Inviting others to my game seems to work okay, though.

    Well i an empty Rush game.For half an hour myself (Defender) and another guy (Attacker) we booth spent half an hour playing Cat and Mouse on Africa Harbor,was quite fun.

    Prior to joining DFA there quite a few times that i had to search continuously to find 8 plus players on a server. Dice really need to Remedy that situation.

    Could adverse weather be affecting things? We got flooding and snowing happening in different places, perhaps this is interfering with internet signals or something. 'Cause I ain't never seen this before like this...

    NOw I remembered...This happened to me a few times. In order to get out of this cycle I selected a specific map (not the one which the loading screen was stuck on) and all seemed to be good as long as I finished that match

    Um, divine? I think you might want to make your avatar your signature instead, it's kind of hard to tell what it says :P If you need help changing signature, check this topic Smile

    i have too often Experienced empty Servers in my time,so i have tried in the following ways to remedy this situation,try the following:

    1- go to your friends list,navagate across to recently played and try and join there session

    2-Dogtags, the people that you have Knifed still play the game,maybe there online playing,so goto your Dogtags tab on the menu Press 'Y' and see if you can join there session

    P.s. Be patient, the search for a decently sized game can take some time ,Happy Hunting Wink
