Default [PC Steam] Cannot join or host games

What happened?

Everyone on my friend list is having an issue with ACM:

Game starts, we get "Failed to create Party", matchmaking doesn't find anything, cannot host, invite or join any friend games. It was working fine about an hour ago?

EDIT: Gah, nevermind, it's Steam having issues..

You know I have noticed the last few days Steam has kinda gone to hell in terms of dropping connections, makes me wonder If that has anything to do with the increased lag people have been experiencing lately.

Ok, now for some reason I cannot connect to a match. I can host a match, but no body can connect to me. Funny thing is I can setup the match for friends only and it will let me start the game all by myself with nobody else in there with me, but nobody can join me before or after I start the game. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Same here. I'm setting up the MP match to "Friends-Only" and inviting some Steam friends to join me, but the game refuses their connection.

I got a steam update on the 7th just after getting the 1.2 Patch, had friends that had the same issue, until they turned off steam and then turned it back on for the Game update. Also a thought is that if everyone gets a 1/2 hour download or longer (depending on bandwidth) than almost no one will be online. Times that by those that play often, and then those that hear about the update and are late.

Just my thoughts.

Steam has nothing to do with that.

lol you can't even mention this fact on the forums. People will freak out and say you're lying. Great screenshot though. It's a prime example of Aliens MP. You can't even enjoy the season pass content because it's damn near impossible to find a match. GEARBOX could at least give us the option to host dedicated servers.

^I'm forced to agree with you! It's pathetic that you now have new maps but cannot play in them because of the poor/broken matchmaking. Also, the Lobby screen could have more information to help us identify who does have and who does not have such maps.

Host migration is desperately needed also. C'mon Gearbox, we are trying hard to have some fun with our new DLC and you have the obbligation to make it happen.
