It's not a secret that Ubisoft's For Honor has a few connectivity issues. There's long load times and you'll probably run into a few matchmaking issues every session. The time spent during those long load screens, though, could be better spent and Reddit user ndl17 did just that. He's been creating miniature weapons based off ones found in For Honor during the load times and player disconnects.
He first started off with the Lawbringer's poleaxe, but has taken requests for weapons of other classes as well. Down below you can check out his craftsmanship with For Honor weapon miniatures.
Each weapon's required small carved wood for the base, however, he works in actual metal for the blades.
The weapons aren't extremely well-polished, but they're a pretty cool side project instead of getting antsy during the wait.
Ubisoft's in the progress of making their servers more stable all around. They've fixed a few of the larger matchmaking issues last week with their second Live Update to Patch 1.03, but they still have plenty more work ahead of them.
Some of For Honor's problems can be fixed on your end as well. Having an Open NAT Type should improve your connectivity and the quality of your match overall.
To get your NAT Type to Open, you'll have to open up certain ports in your router. Specifically: TCP 13000 to 14001, 14008, and 14020 to 14024.
You might also want to open up uPNP on your router. Keep in mind that router behavior varies from model to model.
When you open up the specific ports, you should start getting into matches with stricter skill level gaps — which means, if you're an average player, you'll see less "Rep 20, Gearscore 108s."
We should see more improvements to For Honor's server stability in the coming weeks as the developers are striving for weekly updates to the game.
