yeah i cant find any on optimatch either, and when one does finally come up as soon as i press on them to play it says game session no longer exist or it straight away says not accepted, seems a little strange to me.

Post if you have a similar problem please

the only way I have been able to get a game so far is by creating

quick match or optimatch tell's me either it can't find an opponent or the session no longer exists

what with the minimal online options it adds up to another piss poor live effort as per Pro Evo 4

It is piss poor with no rooms thing, nor lobby's, I dont know what they have done, I mean how can you create leagues?????? Maybe I need to look in the manual. So far played Wrighty and Classic losing 2v1, 1v0.

Yep, 9 times out of 10 when you do an optimatch search and stick everything on 'any', it says there's no one there? Find that hard to believe.

Had a look at the manual already Carl, nothin' there about lobbies or rooms at all.

Game seems a lot less laggy than last year though, liking it so far.

I thought when buying the game all these options would be there, then when it connected the big eager grin on my face quickly turned into a harsh frown

Love the game tho more realistic like pes1, konami are crossed of my people to kill list (scene from billy madison)

i too have only played one game by hosting 1st half. Must be a fault of some sort can never connect to anyone else.

Wish id bought the game from game not tescos, it would be going right back.

well, me, noted fear and my mate all tried something yesterday.

we opened some ports on our routers, and its worked so good.

All 3 of us couldnt find anyone on quick match, optimatch and when creating a game no1 would join.

also, me and noted couldnt connect to play each other for ages. So we both opened these ports on the router and hey presto, it works now.

Im also pulling up 10 names at a time on optimatch, i couldnt believe it when i saw it!

heres the guide for openeing the right ports for your own Router, hope it helps.

Had a go at that, says I need to forward/open port 88 but my router setup page says 'The public port number cannot be 88.Because it will have a collision with the Home Gateway Service'.

I've just opened those ports on my Linksys router but still can't get a game. I guess it is late but even so there surely must be people up playing this at 1am.

I think i may have figured a way of finding more games on optimatch... when you search for a game, instead of leaving all the options as 'any' change the obvious ones (e.g injuries on, subs = 3, match = 10 mins etc) and then search. Everytime i did that i got at least 4 or 5 people come up, whereas when i just searched without making it more specific i didn't get any.

Not sure if its just some sort of coincidence or actually works, but i'm finding a game straight away now everytime :)
