Hello guys, me and several friends went out and got Age of Empires 3. In the multiplayer mode, i can join everyone, but one friend. Him and i cannot be in the same lobby as eachother, no matter the host. We have opened ports, tried with/without upnp, tried disabling firewalls, still it doesnt work. Thanks for reading.

have you checked serial numbers? some of the older games only allow one person per unique serial number to join a game.

I guess you have tried seeing if your friend can join a hosted game when you are not in it?
