Default Anyone with info on Demigod?

Hey guys. Been looking at this and gameplay wise the game seems like a winner. However, I have read early reviews that say the networking code is abysmal and I'd rather not purchase something that effectively cannot be played.

So, is anyone playing this and if so, have the networking issues been resolved?

Demigod

There were massive networking issues when the game launched, it was also discovered that most of the users trying to connect had pirated copies of the game which had flooded the servers with many times more connections than they had been anticipating based on sales. From the reports I've heard they resolved most of these issues within a month or so and I haven't heard of any complaints since.

Its a great game mate, ive played it a fair bit at a lan recently and had no problems with networking then, but i think the issue was with online gaming. A patch came out for it recently which fixed a lot of the networking issues out along with a lot of balance issues.

There's an article on this game in the latest PC PowerPlay.

DEMIGOD - Birth of a genre or a forced mishmash of broken promises?
PC PowerPlay #167, page 56


It's an excellent review. I'm definitely getting this game, it sounds great!

Even if I wasn't interested in the gameplay I would have bought Demigod just due to the developers philosophy on piracy. These guys deserve to be supported. See article for details.

Oh so it was there, I was going to mention that Neddie but I couldn't remember for certain if it was this developer or not. I really liked how they addressed the piracy issue.

DaBing and I play online quite a bit with no issues, at least not connecting between us. Games with others seem to be pretty smooth these days too.
