Reading through this forum I see many people are pissed about so many people disconnecting online. Well, on playfire we figured out something really problematic: All of us have the problem that we get randomly disconnected!!
Even playing Player matches against each other, streetfighter shows a message: “connection to the player was lost” while our PSN never logged out!!
It happens on two moments: 1. Once the stage is loaded and the host character is performing his intro animation, disconnect.
- Second round. Beginning of the match, before we could start fighting, disconnect.
I feel so ashamed when I get beaten one round and this bloody server disconnects me after this round… as if I disconnected! The truth is I’m just back in the SF:IV network gamemenu and my PSN never logged out. Seeing on different forums how big of a problem this is, I really doubt many people actually pull the plug. Most likely if it happens “during” a fight, they have… but who would do that? It would take a lot of time to reboot your PS3 and reload the game. Players that suck would have to do this over and over; who’d go through all that?
This happens to me roughly in every 5 matches!!! It’s really frustrating, especially if you’re in a good and close fight.
If you experience this problem too, please post ahead in this forum. In hopes enough people report this problem, Capcom might fix it.
Note: I played tons of Wipeout HD and Burnout Paradise online, I never received disconnects in those games; so this would mean it can hardly be a firewall issue. Given my 18Mbit/1Mbit/18ms ping connection, this shouldn’t be cause of trouble either. Hope to see your input!
