Ubisoft can you please consider giving us map makers more advanced hosting options for private mp matches. we need to test our maps, the public lobby system is way too basic and restrictive for our needs as map builders, we need to be able to make a playlist of maps without voting for any. please think about it. thanks :)

All we need is an option to start a private lobby with a playlist of say ten maps no voting, then we just invite people in and we can play and test out our maps, it's as simple as that, this would be a huge deal for us mappers.

Please! At LEAST for private! Private lobbies should be fully customizable by the host.

This small change would make a HUGE difference for the map making community and that would have a knock on effect for the whole arcade mode, everyone wins. it's a bit more work for dev team, but it will pay off, im sure of that :)

Did you learn nothing from Far Cry 3 regarding the definition of insanity?

Far Cry has not had a good lobby system since Far Cry 2, which coincidentally was the first full Far Cry game developed by Ubisoft (Far Cry Predator was basically an enhanced version of Instincts).

Anyone expecting Ubisoft to fix the lobby system is going to be sorely disappointed. We're just gonna have to adapt to whatever they give us.

I do find it odd that they listened to the mapmaking community in regards to what they wanted with the editor itself, but not for mutliplayer or hosting matches.

I would agree FC2 was the best lobby system they ever had.
Many have left and never returned to FC because of the disastrous change.

It could be one of the best games released with a revamp of the lobby system with MP and hosting options.

I am one of those people. Been waiting to dish out my money for a good FC since FC2. This time around seems like the editor is amazing. I just hope they update it so we can host matches and get advanced map options.

I agree OP. I think at least if we have to vote in private matches there should be an option to pick a host and rotate with a host choice map vote. In the old days of FC:IP the host would just ask what people wanted to play, that made it more social. Give private lobby more options. Public is a different story.

Nice! Congrats. I know making a good map takes lots of time and patience.


Side note: Was it sponsored by Mountain Dew? :)

If we're talking about learning from FC3... then how about we learn that people won't adapt to whatever they give us.
No, I'm not seriously expecting Ubi to do anything, I have no confidence in them whatsoever. But that doesn't change the fact that this lobby system will cripple the game just like FC3.
I don't want to just dismiss the game outright, but the only thing I can really do is voice my complaints here on the forums.

People won't adapt, people will leave. If they don't want people to leave, they need to fix this.

Fingers crossed they do a few tweaks for private hosting.
