Whare are all the playeres in multiplayer!?
Hi guys!
Is it just me or are there a lack of playeres in multiplayer lobby just all the time...?
for any given time i find it quite dificult to play online because i just cant find many players to have a dual, in the multiplayer lobby the maximum number of users ive found was 5!!
and when i try to conect with one in most cases i just get disconected, it takes normaly quite some time to actualy play, when i try to host a game i have to wait about a minuate or two...
I just dont think its normal... where are all the playeres?? somthing is not right

I just dont get it, in the rank list u can see hundreds of thousands of playeres but in the multiplayer lobby u get to choose among 2-5 players at any given time, its ridiculase! whats up with that? is there somthing we have to configure on are steam account so we can have access to all the playeres online logged in to MTG?

This is just a guess, but perhaps the majority of games are prearranged so the players show only very briefly in the lobby, if at all That would explain all the ranked players and still so few waiting for pick-up games.

the same for me. Previously I've gotten a chance to play with other players but during the last month I haven't seen anybody in lobby.
I suggest to add other MTG players to friends list so we can invite each other to multiplayer game.

I must say that I can't recognize the problem of having no-one to play with. Not now atleast. In the past a little at times. I'm admin of a group of Duels players and at the moment we are almost max'ed out with just about 100 players.
Yes it is true that many players, me included, prearrange matches. The fact that the lobby mechanics are a total mess is probably part of the reason why many players like to prearrange their matches.
Anyways I hope you get your games going. ;)

I have just sent friend invites to everyone who has posted in this thread. Maybe we should take the lead of Aeonikus and start another Duels group. If we had enough members we could plan events when everyone would be able to play.

Think thats a good idea :)
I agree with Aeonikus, the lobby mechanics are a total mess, but it shouldnt have to be that way, I cant get any of my mates to play because none of them are interested...
I hope that the next MTG comes out better, epecialy in the multiplayer, I think lots of people whouldnt mind paying a little more next time but having somthing done right so that their whouldnt be so much critisisam. (sorry for my bad english)

I don't think we should create another Duels group. Aeonikus has done that already and we can simply join his community - just to ask him to send you invite.

I think next MTG DOP should concentrate more on multiplayer options probably introducing some tournaments etc... get to have a lobby chat room or somting like that, it whould be more interesting then just having new decks and chalanges, thats my opinion

They should concentrate on removing that annoying backgrounds and console style menus. They should introduce clear multiplayer system that works without clicking dozen of times to pick a game (that won't work anyway). Make all games visible in proper manner showing slots taken/available and game variants on one page accessible by switching to another tab. Current system is so annoying and it make it so difficult to find and join a game that it is unbelievable. But hey, people like flashy things make it glitter in 2014.
