For Honor Alpha Facing Matchmaking Issues Due to P2P – Report

Ubisoft’s slasher apparently doesn’t use dedicated servers.

Posted By | On 19th, Dec. 2016 Under News


Ubisoft Montreal’s For Honor will be going into beta testing next month but the hack and slash title but the closed alpha is currently live for a small number of PC users. That being said, things aren’t going so hot.

According to a Reddit user who broke the NDA on the alpha, For Honor is suffering from matchmaking issues. This is because the game lacks dedicated servers for its matchmaking and instead relies on peer-to-peer matchmaking.

Though peer-to-peer matchmaking isn’t the worst option in the world, it depends solely on the connection of the host that players are connecting to. Depending on skill rating, connection quality and other factors, players could face tons of issues even getting into a match. Plus, that’s not counting all the games these days that use dedicated servers to reliable effect.

With For Honor releasing in February 2017, having dedicated servers at launch could be a pipe dream. We’ll see how Ubisoft responds but in the meantime, let us know what you think of For Honor only having peer-to-peer matchmaking in the comments.

    This stupid “always online” generation of games can all die off as quickly as they release. Success is not an option.

    This is all due to the fact that Sony can’t do dedicated servers … Just tell the truth , I’m sick and tired of this parity crap because of Sony when it comes to multi plat ,multi player games online ..For example , the A.I. in TF2 sucks @$$ because Sony doesn’t have cloud computing tech over in that lame @$$ company …FACTS..
    PS: MS wanted to use dedicated servers and they turned it down … because why ??????? Sony can’t do it …
