Falling in with everyone else, I was anxious to get into the multiplayer side of PT.. In the beginning stages I had a few random crashing problems during gameplay, but it seemed to fix that problem after a reboot. After the reboot, I tried to join a few random games listed which only had "1/4" players in the game. At those points, the game would crash when I clicked the join button. (Not sure what that could be.) But my serious problem is being placed into spectator mode when the host launches the game. So I'm not able to spawn in.. I make sure I'm on one of the two teams before beginning.. but even then it places me on spectator. I've been able to play in a few games, though. UBI?? Patch please?

If you join a game in progress then you are automatically on spectator until the next game starts. You cannot spawn during a round.

I've played enough multiplayer games to know that. :P I'm talking about when we're sitting in the lobby, everyone readies up, then we launch. It's supposed to pull up a screen to show that everyone has finished loading, then progress to the game. When we switch to the gaming screen I'm a spectator instead of being on a team. My only guess is that it has something to do with Punk Buster.

As more people play the game ubi will probablly look at the forums. They did thus far in Raven Shield. Or BT can tell them what bugs need to be looked at. I also remmebr ubi doing polls in raven shield forum about things that players want changed. It will all boil down to maturity of the post and how many users play pc multi.

This is true, once the game is out, the community managers will PROBABLY (not definately) stop by to see and will read the forum.

however posts of a childish nature, full of insults and flaming will be ignored. Posts that are in a civil mature manner are more likely to be taken seriously.
