A tactic I've been using against formations is to formation up your MWs, march them into the other formation and when they're about 1/3 inside the max formation firing radius, right-click and undo the formation. 90% of the time about 5-10 of your MWs will throw grenades right into the heart of the e...

Yeah, I've had issues with Xbox Live and the Speedtouch - refusing to accept ports are open. My ports look okay in this case, though. It also has a few issues with UDP traffic, and naturally Multiwinia (at least from my traffic logging) is generating absolutely tons of that. Sod it, I'll chuck it an...

I see someone already made a more populated thread on the same issue, so let's move discussion over to that.

Hmm. I have a Speedtouch 780 (BeBox) and 4000 and 4001 are forwarded for UDP. No dice. I would say that 80% of the servers are unconnectable. It doesn't seem like people can join my games either. I've not got to the point of dumping the incoming traffic to find out what's actually going on, but I ma...

Interesting - I'll try turning off my forwards.

It's laggy as hell, though. I just started a 2v2 coop on Holy Tree and couldn't give any orders cos the lag was horrific.

Only just discovered you can sit in the turrets! Oh man, that was great, slaying absolutely tons of yellows as they came romping over to my spawn point. I really, really hate the flying worms from Darwinia - how the hell do you kill them? Darwinians just sit there and happily fire lasers at that whi...

Weird. Maybe patching will get it later - it's always like this with NAT firewalls, even though uPnP is supposed to help. Well, I managed to join one game eventually, and it was great! The game seems a bit laggy in the endgame, I guess cos of the hideously large numbers of little guys moving around....

multiplayer and connection attempts

This might just me being cognitively challenged, but... I can't connect to any multiplayer game. The connection retry counter just goes up and up and my hopes go down and down. Ports 4000 and 4001 are open, and pointed at my machine. No dice. How are the rest of you early starters finding it? Additi...
