I couldnt download the beta let alone play final release. I tried everything regarding router/firewall settings but nothing worked. Now I just downloaded the Medal of Honor multiplayer demo and that didnt work either, seems I got the same connection problem.
I never used to have these problems. This is just an example. The Warhammer patcher is a walk in the park, double click on the icon and away goes the patcher, and look how fast it is. This patcher downloaded at about 7 bits per second. Try running as administrator, open these ports, TCP/UDP, drivers up to date etc etc ad infinitum.
Thought PC games were supposed to be the thinking mans version of console games, better looking and more involved. BUT if the devs cant get the basics right, eg, connecting then dont release the flipping game until it works for one and all.
Ive had it with PC gaming, too much trouble for its own good.
