The fifth game in the Tsukihime series, Melty Blood: Type Lumina released a few hours back and it’s currently topping the Steam charts standing at second with a very positive review. The game appears great, but there are some issues with the game’s multiplayer. Users are reporting that Melty Blood: Type Lumina freezes and crashes when trying to access an online match or during an online match. The reports are so widespread that it seems like the issue is with the game servers and not the user’s system. Some users are also reporting issues like the game not starting.
At the current state, the game is unplayable as a simple interaction with the network tab freezes and crashes the game. The game seems to have no problem in the training queue or when users initially started to play when the game was released. This could be due to the servers running out of capacity, but that’s just our guess as there is no official word from the devs.
When the game launched the recurrent player count was 4k, but it has been growing rapidly with the current recurring users above 12k. The number of players encountering the problem seems to be rising as more players are joining the game.
If you are desperate to play online, there are a few ways to do it and bypass the crashing and freezing issues. Users who created their own lobby were able to play without any issues or you can search for ranked through the training mode. So, we suggest that you create a room of your own and then invite friends.
Now, a strange solution but it works so try it. If Melty Blood: Type Lumina is crashing and freezing on Network mode or in Ranked matches, change the download region on Steam. Here is the path you can follow once the Steam client is running. Click on Steam on the top-left corner > Settings > Downlaod > under the download region, select another region than your current. Some users have had success with Barcelona Spain, London, and Tokyo Japan. If these don’t work for you try a few other before you give up.
