Tozai News


Team Tozai has been reading posts and listening to comments from lots of Lode Runner players who are having difficulty finding other Runners with whom they can share levels or play live matches. We want everyone to have a great online experience with the multiplayer modes in Lode Runner for Xbox LIVE Arcade, so we have a couple of ideas (listed below) that can help community members find each other. If you have additional ideas to help the community connect, we'd love to hear from you.

1) Establish the 15 minute rule--When looking to find a match or share lobby, or to set up your own match or share lobby, do so only at the top of the hour or at fifteen minute intervals. Also, be sure to set your clock using an established time-keeping reference, such as Reducing the randomness of matching can go a long way toward getting Runners connected.

2) Follow @LodeRunnerXBLA on Twitter--We've set up a new Twitter account just for the Lode Runner Community to make it easier to connect and get playing. If you don't have a Twitter account yet, it's easy to set up and it's free. We are asking everyone to begin their Lode Runner Community-related tweets with a hashtag--#LRcom--so that everyone in the community can quickly see these tweets in their "in" box or use the Twitter search function to find all #LRcom-tagged tweets. Since Twitter posts the most recent tweets at the top of your "in" box or search results, you'll always see the most recent requests. Be sure to follow @LodeRunnerXBLA, as well, and we'll try to follow everyone in the community; doing so will enable Tozai Games to communicate directly with everyone in the community through tweets and direct messages. @LodeRunnerXBLA will also send out tweets to notify followers if an official gamer event is scheduled or regarding other important community news.

We hope to see everyone on Xbox LIVE!
