Multiplayer not working?
I have treid hosting numerous games, and no one joins, I have tried joining quick matches under the 'any' option and it either says there are not games, or it failed to join the current session. Anyone encounter anything similar.

I sometimes have this issue and then get a "failed connection" message when I try to re-host. Not sure what causes the problem, but restarting Magic usually fixes it for me. Not sure if it's a connection issue that just doesn't last very long, or if it's a problem with the client.

It is the problem with the game/server. To me it happens like 50% of the time just after I try to connect to game and the game is full.

Someone talking about encounters again? Not real decks. Game locks out sometimes and yeah one will prolly lose because of that. It is a lot like a real MTG, despite all bugs. You can learn some rules and strategy. Multiplayer has been buggy for me today but when it works it is a pleasant experience.

Does this multiplayer bug happen often?

And can someone post when it is back up and running?

I had the same experience for a long time. I'm new, and wanted to challenge real people, but the auto match system never worked!

This seems largely due to a Magic 2012/2013 issue across at least the Xbobx360 platform, as well.

For your situation, don't try auto-joining or hosting. Instead, select custom game modes and try to join specific games hosted by others. You'll need to specify the game type you want to play, like Planeschase, FFA, 2HG, but then you'll see games listed.

Be sure to refresh, because active games aren't displayed, and there's no visible game lobby tracking active online players.

Following this method, I can routinely connect to games and make stupid mistakes and lose games in front of real people, instead of just the AI.

Hope this helps!

I hoped i didnt buyed this game, and i will not spend any more money on any dotp before they fixed that damn problem.

I use the above method all the time, but I still get the problem of not being able to join some games. In fact, rooms that I've hosted and then gotten out of stick around (assumedly because the room was established under my name). However, even when I know I was the last person in the room, the room sometimes sticks around and no one can join it, but me.
