Sorry if this has already been addressed but me and my brother can't play together. It always kick one of us out of the match. I've heard other people having this issue with roommates.
Invest in a good gaming router. I've no problem playing Apex Legends with my Son in the same house and both of us using a PS4. I've a netduma router.
Hello, first of all, I love Apex Legends!
My friends and I decided to do a lan party, but we found out only one person can connect and enter the lobby through the same connection. The other two would get 'attempting connection' and 'retrieving matchmaking list'
We solved our lan party by tethering our phone but I hope you guys can fix this. Its quite a huge annoyance
To anyone that has this problem.
How are we going to fix this?
From what I've heared you should open the NAT filter in your router settings as default it would be secured.
That way they were able to play together on the same internet connection, However in my case and maybe others the options isn't there in the router settings. So has anyone else found a fix for this?
I'd like to here from the community
I really hate to have to sound like a butt here, but blueberry you do not understand what opening a port means. It is not possible to open a given port to 2 different IP addresses on the same LAN to incoming internet traffic.
what we need is information on how to change the port the game uses to to connect to the game server, not the fount end, not the launcher.
Or it needs to be changed on your end to not crash without us having to dink with router settings like any number of other games have done. I can't help you with that voodoo, but I assume it has to do with not sending unsolicited traffic or making sure two clients from the same IP are using differing ports automatically. As I said I understand the client router part, not the server communication programing part.
WE FIGURED OUT AN EASY SOLUTION!!!
Disclamer*: I have only tried this on Xbox.
My roommate and I play on xbox and faced this issue every time we tried to play.
Our easy solution was to have one of the two accounts on the same wifi leave the party when everyone gets back into the lobby and just have your squad re-invite whoever left and that has worked flawlessly so far!
Ill update if anything changes!
Hope this works for everyone!!
I love this game but I cannot squad up with my roommates as one of us will get into a match and the other always gets sent back to the menu, I've seen multiple people have this same issue and it seems to be ignored. If anyone has a fix please let me know
