FM7 Multiplayer Private Lobbies Instability in Australia & New Zealand since Thu 18th Mar

Has anyone else noticed instability in private lobbies since last Thursday 18th mar?

Multiple Australia & New Zealand groups have been unable to run their usual race meetings - has been happening since around 10pm AEDT Thu 18th Mar, and continued over the weekend

Either lobbies fail to start at all (unable to reach game server or similar error) , or after a lap all two all lobby participants are disconnected simultaneously

Issue only seems to be affecting private lobbies - public hoppers seem to be working fine

Not just you guys, Canada, the US, Europe and Britain, all the same.

ah man that sucks… we had reports of people getting races to work via US-based hosts, but i guess that was just a fluke

anyone heard anything from Turn10/Microsoft about it? Any chance they read these forums? :crossed_fingers:

We are having the same problems on FM6.

Yep, having issues in the UK too for the last week or so. Sometimes we manage to get into a lobby, but the race connection will time out after a lap or two. It’s impossible to complete a race at the moment - really frustrating!
