No more multiplayer with iOS 8
« on: September 21, 2014, 09:44:21 AM »
It's not possible to get connected with an invited friend. With matchmaking the other guy gets disconnected in some minute of playing, and it's not my overwhelming skill that scares him away.

Friend invites haven't worked well in Game Center for years.  There's no real rhyme or reason to it, but the best thing to do is just try a regular 2-way auto-match at the same time.  That will most likely pair the two of you up.

That's odd, I get direct invites quite often from recently met players. These used to work fine until recently before iOS 8. Regular auto-match works but the other player always gets disconnected after approx one minute of playing.

When we do in-house testing here the direct friend invites only work 50% of the time, so we rarely bother.  We just do 2-way auto-match which works most of the time.
