Multiplayer lobby problems

I start playing multiplayer with no problems, i start the xbox click find a match in a few seconds i am playing. The problem starts when the first game is done, the lobby screen appears and i can see al the other players and we are waiting for the next game. Then suddenly the host always seems to discconect, the screen displays the message finding a new host, but this never works and I am always disconnected after the game appears to fail to find a host. This happens EVERY single time, so i cant even play 2 games in a row, its very anoying and i cant find anything about this in the internet. I had trying playing with friends online to see if maybe all i have is bad luck and the hosts do leave the game everytime, but they tell me the games always keep on going and its only me who gets disconnected.
anybody has any tips or info about this?
thanks in advanced.

Everytime i get on acbh onine it says searching for other abstergo agents but nobody ever shows up help please

I think that the problem has a lot to do with Ubisoft's server setup (or whoever actually runs the servers) than your system or anything that you control. It could also be that there are not a huge number of people playing the multiplayer.
What will sometimes help is if you exit out of the current lobby and start a new search. This will refresh your server request and put you on the top of the list for the server to fill the player void in your session.

How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?


Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

  • 3

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

  • 4

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.

  • Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    As this game is old now, Infinity Ward may have turned off the servers as there is not enough support for the multiplayer aspect. This happens regularly with game that are a couple of years old and not many people play online.

    Empire Earth the Art of Conquest

    The company that bought Sierra has discontinued supporting servers for 21 games, including Empire Earth Art of Conquest. There is a freeware solution, called EE Lobby, which will act as the game's internet server provided all participants download it and run it. Just google the name EE Lobby and you should be set. My friends and I did it a few days ago and it not only worked flawlessly, the game play was much smoother than when we played with the Sierra internet server.

    Good luck and happy gaming!
