For example: a player with a soul memory of 45 million can invade a player with a soul memory of million, and vice versa. The Name-Engraved Ring reduces the soul memory required to invade and summon players in the "Top Tier". Another thing to note is the Cracked Blue Eye Orb, a player in the Top Tier can invade downwards to 15 million, however the increased range of the blue eye orb will allow players to invade others who are in the 12 million - 15 million range a sort of pseudo top tier and vice versa a 12 million player can invade infinitely upwards.
Suspicions about the matchmaking issues arose earlier this weekend and the game's official Twitter confirmed things:. Hi there, we're sorry to hear about the frustrating experience. Players were very excited that the beloved Monster Hunter franchise was getting cooperative play but these Xbox matchmaking issues and the recent PSN outage seem to be are no doubt frustrating, especially with Monster Hunter World coming out a mere two days ago. The issue seems to be that when a player begins a game on Xbox, they have an option to either play solo, cooperatively with their Squad, or join into a session where other players are visible to find monsters with fellow hunters. Even though Xbox One gamers are dealing with the brunt of issues, PlayStation users have not been off scot-free. The recent PlayStation Network outage did put a damper on launch weekend, if only for a few hours.
Dauntless did not make a good first impression-actually, it was more like it did make a good first impression, and then had forgotten my name when we met again the next day. I first booted up this free-to-play alternative to Monster Hunter on Monday, used its surprisingly deep character creators to create a cartoony avatar I quite liked, and enjoyed its opening few moments. I went on a super basic introductory hunt, watched a couple cutscenes, and struggled through a few server connection errors before I could make it to the town hub. I crafted some armor, talked to a few vendors, and quit for the afternoon. The next time I booted up the game, my character and progress had mysteriously vanished.
