For Honor Alpha Tester Highlights Issues With the Game’s P2P Matchmaking
A For Honor alpha tester has broken a non-disclosure agreement to highlight issues with the game’s P2P matchmaking. The upcoming Ubisoft hack-and-slash title won’t have dedicated servers and seems to be suffering from matchmaking and connectivity issues since the first alpha. With the game coming out in February, those partaking in the test are understandably concerned.
Over on Reddit, user MexGrow writes:
You spend a whole lot of time just sitting in menus or looking at the VS screen, it takes forever for matches to finally start (And it’s not loading, if you play against AI, it loads very quickly) so imagine how frustrating it is to be thrown back to the main menu when it fails.
For Honor is an excellent title, but we all now how terrible P2P matches are, and if the game does not ship with proper dedicated server support, I for one, will not be purchasing this game.
I hope to bring awareness to this issue and that Ubisoft understands that most people are not happy about playing on P2P connections.

Ubisoft has yet to address the concerns.
For Honor is out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on February 14, 2017.
