MW2: PS3 Party Invites Still Broken |


UPDATE: Several people have said that if all party members quit the lobby they’re in, that they’ll be reunited again. This simply is not the case. This just doesn’t work.

Last night I installed patch 1.04 of MW2. That’s right, the fourth patch since launch a week ago.

And the party invites system is still broken.

Let me just point out right off the bat that the initial invite works just fine now. That used to be broken, but now works. You can receive an invite, accept it, and get plopped into your friend’s party no problem.

But that’s where things go downhill.

Say you’re the party leader. You think to yourself that maybe Ground War is where you want to go. So you choose that option, but then decide to change your mind, so you back out. And your party’s gone. So you have to invite your friend again, and start the process over.

That’s right. Unless you want to play in the same playlist all night, you’ll constantly have to reform your party. Am I the only one experiencing this?

    hehe I like Hennings posts. If a game doesnt’ have multiplayer he doesn’t have much interests, but if it does, he tears it apart 😛

    I’m just pulling your leg lol. Yea that is messed up although I haven’t went into multiplayer with a party yet. I’ve only did spec ops and I’ve had no problem navigating from spec op to spec op.

  • I paid my $60. I want things to work.

  • if all the party members quit then they are runited in the same party lobby again.

    Everyone has to “back out” after the party leader backs out of the game lobby in order to stay in the party. It’s been like this since MW1.

  • sam

    that is dumb, the party leader should dictate the direction of the party.

  • Smegmazor

    Not necessarily dumb. Suppose a party member wants to stay in a particular room and break off from the party? If the party leader had total control, said party member couldn’t do this.

    Working as intended?? I agree with Smegmazor.. last night i was in a party and they all left cept me.. I wanted to stay with the guys in the game cause we were working good together. If i had been taken out of the group i woulda been irritated. Just my opinion.. If leader leaves everyone else can leave too if they want..

  • Anthony

    Its always been like this and its been like this in cod4, if you back out to your lobby, then your friends needs to back out too to go back into your party..

    I don’t think any of you know what you’re talking about. Blackstaffer is correct. It is totally messed up. The party should ALWAYS follow the party leader because that’s why they are the leader.

  • JimmyMagnum

    it works the same on the 360. If the party leader quits, you can quit too to rejoin the party. If you don’t leave with them and decide to stay on the server you’re currently on, then you have every right to do so.

    The party system isn’t messed up at all. If its such a big deal, then make sure everyone in the party knows you’re leaving the server. Simple as that. I wouldn’t want to be forced out of a game because the party leader decided to leave it.

  • Except that it doesn’t always work! I exit the playlist, my friend exits, but we’re not placed back into the same party way too often. This is very frustrating.

  • anon

    FWIW, my party invites are still 100% broken. I cannot join a party or invite others. It just says cannot connect to host all the time. I tried the logging in/out thing. No luck. IW if you’re reading this, please FIX IT.
