Tomorrow marks the third anniversary of GTA IV's release on the PC. To celebrate, Rockstar are holding another special Multiplayer Event featuring themselves as well as various webmasters from some of the long running GTA fansites. The event takes place tomorrow, 2nd December from 4-7PM Eastern Time (that's 9PM to 12AM GMT) and both GTA IV and Episodes from Liberty City will be played. I myself will hopefully be playing a few games, my gamertag along with all the other webmasters participating is listed below, so feel free to add any of us and we'll try and get you into a game!


For more details including R* gamertags and information on the sweepstakes, head on over to the Newswire post. And don't forget, if you can't join in the fun, you can always watch the live stream of the event on the Social Club multiplayer page!

Nope. It's for everyone. Just add me or anyone else or a R* gamertag if you wish and we'll try and get you in a game!

To be honest it was a bit of a mess for us on 360 the last time but that's probably because R* were only on the PS3 version. I assume they'll be handling it all this time. It's probably best if you guys add me AND one of the R* gamertags to be in with a better chance of getting in game. I can create a party and invite you guys but I'm not sure if we can force ourselves into a game with others. I always felt this part of GTA IV multiplayer was really awkward and I'm still not entirely sure how you're meant to join a game with your party. Whenever I tried this it was literally just my own party and no one else could join us so we had to play amongst ourselves. Anyone know how it's actually supposed to be done lol?

Exactly.

So there's no guaranteed way to join...

So this is actually a flaw in the multiplayer system then?

I mean if you have a party... you're supposed to go into a match against another party right? That's like the whole point of a party based system. That's how every other game using parties (CoD for example) works.

Hmm... interesting design choice then. And am I correct in thinking only the party host can invite other players? So say if it was me and a R* guy, we couldn't both invite some people, only he could?

I'm still not quite sure how the party system works but I'm starting to think that when you search for a game, It tries to find another party to play against that has an equal amount of players that you have in yours. If it doesn't find one, it just splits up your own party into teams to against each other instead.
- If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

I think the same Noru, it's just that it NEVER finds another party. And it never has done either, not even when the game first came out and thousands of people were online.

I think as you are part of a private game, you can invite other people, hosting the game or not, though I'm not sure of this...
