Facing issues with Chivalry 2’s multiplayer feature in 2022? Well, there can be quite a few reasons why this can happen. Chivalry 2 lets players party up and battle against online players through a matchmaking process. However, an unstable internet connection can cause unappealing trouble. Chivalry 2 does support a cross-platform lobby. But funnily, it doesn’t support cross-platform teaming up. Tom Banner Studios, the developers, received umpteen complaints about the missing cross-platform party feature. As a result, they promised to bring cross-platform parties via a content update by the end of Q2 2022. As of now, if you are trying to team up with a friend on a different platform, you will not be able to do so.
Chivalry 2’s violent gameplay may not be for everybody. However, it is definitely fun to slash some enemies using melee weapons. Add some friends to the picture, and Chivalry 2 becomes your favorite way to bust your stress after a long week! The first-person slasher can feel good even if you are a solo player. When you hit the start button as a solo player, you will be matched up with random players via a matchmaking process. As you can understand, the game obviously sounds more fun to play with friends. But some issues can complicate the process of partying up in Chivalry 2.
How to fix Chivalry 2 multiplayer not working in 2022?
You could find yourself stuck in queue for minutes before finding a match. This may get annoying after a while, especially when the queuing process makes you wait for so long but ends up in a “matchmaking failed” error. During Chivalry 2’s release back in June 2021, the developers had received hundreds of reports regarding an annoying party invite error which stopped players on PC from teaming up. However, the developers soon fixed with a patch. If you are facing trouble with inviting friends to the party, it is either a problem on your side or a new bug. Here’s what you should try to tackle this issue:
Troubleshoot your internet connection
It is needless to say, that a stable internet connection is the backbone of all multiplayer online video games out there. Chivalry 2, too, can misbehave if your internet connection features fluctuating ping. To fix this, try rebooting your router and modem. While doing so, make sure you unplug cables from the router and wait for about 2-3 minutes. After ward, plug back in the required cables and switch on the devices. Restart your system, PC or console, and then reconnect to your WiFi connection.
Make sure your system is set close enough to your router’s position. You could also try a wired or direct connection [via ethernet] to check whether it solves the problem. If you are sure that your internet connection is not stable and are unable to fix it, call up your ISP for help.
Update Chivalry 2
This is obvious, but you musn’t keep any game updates pending. Developers release patch updates to fix bugs and glitches. Keeping them pending could trigger older bugs as well as new ones and cause your game to misbehave. Hence, you should also mandatorily complete pending updates to eliminate an issue with multiplayer in Chivalry 2.
Reinstall Chivalry 2
It may seem very inconvenient, but things could go wrong because of corrupted files. Third-party anti-virus programs may be the culprits behind such situations. Experts recommend disabling your anti-virus programs while installing a game from platforms like EGS or Steam, to avoid running into “corrupt” situations. You could also face similar situations on a console, where unstable download speeds could cause packet loss and ultimately, a corrupted file. In such cases, reinstalling the game would be the best thing you could try!
If none of the above works, it is most likely a server outage that’s bugging Chivalry 2. Make note of server maintenance timings, as during maintenance, online modules in video games are usually unavailable. If so, try playing the game after the maintenance ends or the servers are back up. You could keep track of bugs, server maintenances/outages, and other updates from Chivalry 2’s official Twitter handle. Stay tuned for more updates on Chivalry 2 and more video games!
