You should be seeing fewer connection issues after today's For Honor Live Update 2 for Patch 1.03. Ubisoft has fixed two specific bugs with For Honor's multiplayer matchmaking and should be improving match stability overall. The second Live Update should be implemented at 1PM EST after a short maintenance.
Once the servers complete the maintenance, you should restart your game.
We are aware that some players are experiencing errors that are causing disconnects in multiplayer matches. Our team has identified a bug causing some of the #6000018 and #6000039 errors. We are deploying a fix today at 1PM EST on all platforms to fix this bug and improve match stability.
"Maintenance should last around 10-15min," FredEx finished. "Our team will monitor how these changes affect the player experience in addition to investigating other causes of player disconnects."
Also: due to the most recent Live Update, there will be a graphical glitch for the Conquerors weapon during his death animation. The glitch should be fixed in an incoming update.
Ubisoft has had their sights on connectivity issues for some time, but would rather fix their current peer-to-peer system than transition into a dedication server system. For Honor's game director Roman Campos Oriola had already mentioned fixes were inbound when Patch 1.03 went live.
It's more a bigger network structure that sometimes got fucked up when there are too many people running on it, and it was not intended to have that many people. We are working on that overall load. That should improve.
Currently what we're seeing from the data on PC after the last patch is it's getting much better. We'll see when that patch is deployed on console whether it will have the same impact. But so far, we think it's more a problem of structure and infrastructure and the way we connect with them in the game, than something related to peer-to-peer.
The developers may reconsider switching to dedicated servers, but not any time soon. They want to improve the stability of For Honor as much as they can before they re-evaluate the current system.
For Honor's Live Update 2 for Patch 1.03 should be available at 1PM EST today, March 15, after the server maintenance.
