Why is it impossible to play Unreal Tournament 3 online?

Postby Dr Caligineus on Sun Aug 23, 2009 6:40 pm

I just installed UT3 again, as I only just heard about the Titan pack (which came out in March I think).

However, as the title of the thread suggests, it's impossible to play online, because:

1. There are hardly any servers about.
2. It's possible to connect to only a few of them (the rest just fail).
3. When you do connect to server, the lag is utterly absurd (even if the ping's only around 30ms).

When I do get to a server, I'm left thinking, "are all these other people just on here for a few seconds running and shooting randomly with no clue what's going on around them before giving up like me, or am I doing something wrong?"

Roar!

Has anyone else experienced these problems? Would any help be forthcoming? :)

No lag for me, and the few good servers i've found usually got an empty spot or two.

Frent0, are you also running UT3 on Steam?

If that solves the problem maybe it's worth sticking my CD key in and putting it on there (although it means downloading the whole thing and installing it again because it won't just take the installation from the disc)?

Will the Steam version include the v4 patch and the Titan pack?

I do have a steam version, yes. And steam automatically patches every game.

Cool, thanks. I'll give it a go at some point. :)
