yesterday we enjoyed some sessions of Online-MP, but I feel I need to report some experiences:
I played (as the host) with 6 other people Death Race mode. It was a quick race and most of us finished the track soon. Unfortunately you have to wait until every driver finished the race or the time runs up. The last drivers didn´t manage to finish the race and we couldn´t see how much longer we had to wait (probably 4- 5 minutes). So I tried to quit the race, which is impossible. Tried to quit the game: impossible! So I Alt-Strg-del Carmageddon via Task manager. This sucked a lot. Please make sure that the host can quit a game, make sure it only needs three people to finish a race. Show the time that needs to be waited also to the players who are done! Give them something entertaining while they wait
After this, my complete progress wasn´t loaded anymore when I started Carma again. So I need to unlock all multiplayerstuff again in single player! This is shit! Anybody knows how to get my unlocked content back? Please make sure in the final version, we DON´T need to unlock Multiplayer stuff in single player.
Include a text chat, so you - as a host - can communicate with the others to tell them, when the game starts or why you are still waiting (for other players)
Please make an option where the host can modify powerup options and/or set a number of credits people have at the start of the race. Some PUps are too powerfull. But deactivate them all gives you no money to repair, because there are no peds to score. So I really really hope peds will be included in MP in the final version
I really love the game already, but it feels unfinished, imbalanced (carcrusher with powerups just sucks) and not well tested in Multiplayer
