Naughty Dog Releases Free Multiplayer Maps For The Last Of Us: Remastered
When the subject of The Last of Us comes up, it’s seemingly always in relation to its acclaimed single-player mode. The game has an interesting, fun multiplayer mode, too, but many PlayStation 4 owners who have picked up The Last of Us Remastered have been complaining about technical problems standing in their way of playing online. One issue in particular–long wait times when looking for a multiplayer match–is the focus of the game’s latest update.
Patch 1. The MB update lists only one change, though it’ll be a very welcome one for many: “Matchmaking updates to improve long wait times some players have experienced to find a match.
In the past, we have released a post touching on how the MMR system works. We are updating it to properly reflect the current system in Rainbow Six Siege. Your skill represents your ability to win a game. Comparing two teams’ skill gives you the probability that one team will win against the other. The higher the difference, the more likely a given team is going to win. When two teams with the same skill levels are matched up with each other, they both have an equal shot at winning.
The estimation of your skill is probabilistic. In general, the more games you play, the more information we have about you, and the more confident we are about this estimation. The lower the uncertainty, the higher the confidence. This led to confusion as the play experiences of players of different ranks would vary greatly. This also means that your clearance level has no impact on your MMR. The MMR is updated solely on the outcome of your match. If this outcome is unexpected for example, you lost against players with a lower skill than your team , the skill updates will be more substantial, and vice-versa.
Fall Guys servers down: Matchmaking stalls as the devs prepare for the weekend
Every reality show has at least one villain. As Sima and the show itself frequently remind us, arranged marriage is not quite the form of social control it used to be; everyone here emphasizes that they have the right to choose or refuse the matches presented to them. But as becomes especially clear when Sima works in India, that choice is frequently and rather roughly pressured by an anvil of social expectations and family duty.
In the most extreme case, a year-old prospective groom named Akshay Jakhete is practically bullied by his mother, Preeti, into choosing a bride. Indian Matchmaking smartly reclaims and updates the arranged marriage myth for the 21st century, demystifying the process and revealing how much romance and heartache is baked into the process even when older adults are meddling every step of the way.
Real-time problems for Fortnite. Is the server down? Can’t log in? Here you see what is going on.
However, Infinity Ward is taking steps to address the issue, with a fix confirmed to be coming, though there’s no ETA for it just yet. Over on Twitter, Joe Cecot, Infinity Ward’s co-design director of multiplayer, acknowledged the issue in a reply to a fan. According to Cecot, the problem has now been identified, and Infinity Ward is “working on a fix. Long matchmaking times, in particular, have been a contentious issue for fans. It’s difficult to say when Infinity Ward will deploy the fix, and until the issue is solved fans will have to deal with the matchmaking problems.
This does seem like it will be a priority for Infinity Ward, though, so a fix should be in the pipeline soon. Issues will continue to rise here and there, but it is good that Infinity Ward is squashing bugs now. Still, many are optimistic that the issues will quickly be solved, allowing the game to return to its normal state. Hopefully, Infinity Ward’s fix for the matchmaking problem is released soon.
The only problem with ‘Indian Matchmaking’ is that it doesn’t live up to your fantasies
The Mumbai-based matchmaker Sima Taparia delivers this meme-friendly one-liner in the seventh episode of the hit Netflix series Indian Matchmaking. But she departs from this well-worn model in her attention to one extra characteristic: caste. This silent shadow hangs over every luxurious living room she leads viewers into. She lumps an entire social system, which assigns people to a fixed place in a hierarchy from birth, together with anodyne physical preferences.
This prejudiced treatment includes, but is hardly limited to, workplace discrimination in the United States. For example, the state of California sued the tech company Cisco in June for allegedly failing to protect a Dalit employee from discrimination by his higher-caste Brahmin managers.
As we get closer to the last Marvel’s Avengers beta test – open to some of the problems and annoyances players reported over the last two beta weekends. Across the board, there have been several tweaks to matchmaking, for ultra-wide and super-ultrawide screens, with us planning more for launch.
In the two weeks or four years since Indian Matchmaking debuted on Netflix I just checked: It’s 10 days , I have watched my fellow South Asians do what we do best: Rip it apart. The Netflix reality show follows Mumbai matchmaker Sima Taparia as she takes on various clients looking to settle down. It has been called casteist, colorist, regressive — all the adjectives my generation of allegedly progressive Desis use to describe things we criticize or reject about our culture.
It is being maligned, in short, for doing exactly what it meant to: Presenting a multifaceted depiction of Indians around the world through the lens of our collective obsession: Marriage. Our society is. Let’s start with one note: Matchmaking is not the same as arranged marriage.
Plus, new weapons also available now on PlayStation Store. Happy Thursday! You should see improved matchmaking all around.
They don’t go away just because the younger generation wants them to, and they infect and ingrain themselves in us in uncomfortable ways that.
The Fall Guys servers down problem has returned as the game starts to head into its first weekend. Players have reported problems with finding a match since the servers came back online alongside the fresh update to Fall Guys released earlier today. While developer Mediatonic intentionally took the Fall Guys servers down specifically their matchmaking services earlier this week to manage the server load, it hasn’t made any announcements about taking such measures this time.
This is the most recent status update from the official Fall Guys server status Twitter account as of about pm EDT. It looks like the developers are still getting things sorted out from the recent update and are currently focused on getting the situation stabilized. A lot of requests for an update – we’re still working super hard on getting things all prepped for the weekend.
Thank you so much for your patience, we know this isn’t fun! We will let you know as soon as things have stablised and you’re good to hop back in! August 7, Mediatonic took the Fall Guys servers down earlier today to implement some “optimizations and enhancements” to the game’s backend, ideally to keep it stable throughout the weekend rush.
Some players seem to still be able to connect and play matches, but GR’s own Iain Wilson has gone several hours without managing to get into a game this afternoon. With the Fall Guys servers down, you might as well spend your time strategizing for that next round of Egg Scramble. Make sure you check out our Fall Guys tips for plenty of advice that will help push you all the way to the crown.
And if you haven’t gotten a chance to try it yourself yet, I’ll leave you with this line from our Fall Guys review.
The Last of Us Remastered update 1.02 ‘latest effort’ to fix matchmaking issues
We’ve got details on progress we’ve made, our next projects, and early preseason explorations. Welcome back! In late February we talked about our plans for Ranked in Today we’ll revisit those goals, provide an update on what we’ve done so far, and reveal some big changes that are making their way to you soon. Buckle up!
Activision Support (via CharlieIntel) claimed to have resolved the issue last Friday (May 1st). Unfortunately, a lot of us who played Modern.
Besides the issue of being plagued with hackers and cheaters, the server is not doing too well. Recently, several pro-gamers raised their complaints. They also mentioned the fact that they rolled out an initial fix to take care of this. However, it might be a while before we get a permanent solution for this. The matter remains unprecedented as we do not know what is causing this issue. Neither do we have a clue what Activision or Infinity Ward are going to do to fix it.
Thank you for your patience. With the latest update, few things revealed the issue of cheaters. We now know that Activision and Infinity Ward are keeping things tight from their end. Not only monitoring cheaters but also putting them in the same lobby to discourage such activities. However, this might just be the tip of the iceberg.

The Xbox One beta is currently unaffected since it was without any major matchmaking issues to impact it. Capcom said early in the morning that the company was aware of issues impacting the PlayStation 4 version of the beta and that players were having matchmaking problems.
The company said at the time it was working to resolve the problem. Hours later, it was confirmed that the beta had been delayed on the PlayStation 4 and PC since the issues were apparently affecting the latter as well. We’re aware that PS4 users trying to play the Resident Evil Resistance beta are experiencing matchmaking issues at this time, and are working on resolving the problem. Please stay tuned for further updates.
We appreciate your patience! The XB1 version is unaffected and is available.
