Any xbox game I play online I always run into people I can not group with due to NAT issues and such. Will this still be a problem in Defiance?

yeah, it a router thing not a game thing look in your instruction for router to fix it, or get a different router

My router is set to open NAT. The problem is when others don't have their router set up correctly.

Because I want to know if the dedicated servers for Defiance will prevent this from being an issue.

It's an MMO, if your network is malfunctioning you'll get some serious problems with everything, if someone else is lagging their voice will break, their character model will teleport and when they disconnect their party slot will either leave or become stuck there.
These are the basic results of someone with a bad connection in any MMO

as long as your router is set to open, and set up correctly, then no you shouldnt have an issue.

It won't be for YOU. But will be for any one that DOES have issues. Get ready to see people with bad NAT's or connections rubber banding around the map.

Would just be nice if people don't have the correct NAT settings that they just can't connect and get a small reason or something as to who they can't connect. This would really avoid the rubber banding issues and a few others overall.

This is a good idea.

So true. Never understood why people play online games with DSL. It's broadband but not highspeed.

I had a moderate NAT setting for a while, and I noticed it was only an issue when joining a person's game when they had a strict NAT setting. Seeing as its server run, rather than player based hosting, I don't think it'll be much of an issue. Hopefully.

I think the server run will work for the open world but I am afraid that when joining parties or playing with clan mates NAT issues could cause problems. Just last night I was playing Halo 4 with some guys I was randomly paired with and after wining a few matches they sent me a party invite and even though I have an open NAT I still could not join them.

What?
You crazy. They're going to be there. And, I'll take them. The more people playing, the better.

I don't understand why people can't figure out how to keep an open nat.
It's really not that hard. All of the routers I've seen the settings for are pretty straight forward. No excuse. Open dem ports, yo.
