    Host migration selects the next best available host in the party when the original host leaves the game. One of WFC's biggest issues was whenever the host quit everyone else was forced to quit as well.

    SHOULD BE A BULLET POINT FEATURE ON THE BACK OF THE BOX

    Its 2012. Why is this not in every game for forever?!

    In War for Cybertron multiplayer, when the Host (player with the best connection to everybody else) quits, the match ends and everybody gets dumped back to the main multiplayer menu.

    With Host Migration, if the host quits, or their connection is otherwise lost. The game will seek out the next best player in the match with connection and make them the host -- after this brief pause, the game continues as normal.

    Bought. Insta-bought. I can now fully enjoy the game, flaws and all, without fear that the match will just randomly end for no reason.

    High Moon aren't idiots after all. They're just sub-par developers who take a while to cover the basics.

    Although it's pretty sad that we're all excited because a fundamental aspect of any acceptable modern game is included.

    There'll still be rage-quitters.

    Just that rage-quitters won't screw over anybody else's gameplay in the process.

    Oh thank...everyone!

    This alone makes the game that much better, and multiplayer, oh I cannot wait to get my hands on multiplayer now.

    True, and this is what I meant but didn't word clearly. Always be rage quitters, just won't affect everyone else's game.

    why did HMS wait so long to announce this is what I'm wondering--it was only the BIGGEST complaint people had with WFC, so much so people asked if host migration would be part of DOTM's setup:lol 

    Anyway, it IS nice to hear that it is finally going to be part of HMS' Transformers games from this point forward. Now, if they would fix the random moving body parts on their Transformers, and stop making all characters look like they are cheaply built every time they explode, I'll be super happy:p

    Amen to that.

    In order to avoid such situations I tend to create lobbies when I play. But that doesn't take away the fact that it's way easier to just search for a game.

    This is great news. I hated when the matches just stop because the host would quit.

    Does anyone know if there will be dedicated servers on the PC version? Or will it be the same as for consoles?
