Why can't we host?!!!!!

Post by Scottb »

The most frustrating part of playing this game is the inability to host. For those of us who can not, we have to wait and wait and wait for someone to "pick" us. Rather than controlling who we play with, we are stuck. Please let everyone host. Thanks

I don't stop people from hosting - it just does not work for some people due probably to router configurations or your network setup.

Thanks for your response Aidan. I have tried all the different configurations to allow me to host, but none of them work. Thus is on my Mac and iPad. I don't understand why a router configuration has anything to do with being able to host. Thanks. Scott

Because for the hosting process, other players need to be able to communicate with a network server you have created withing the game on your machine. When you can't host, its because something blocks the communication. That something can be a firewall, your internet provider's setup, your router configuration if you have a router, or possibly some other factors I'm not aware of.

None of these answers related to hosting are specific enough to be meaningful. I think most would like the ability to host rather than waiting to be accepted or chosen.
