I have been suffering through this issue for a few months now and it’s driving me crazy. I play on PS3 and often when my friends and I play the PS3 will totally freeze during spectator mode. In the past when there were connection issues the person would end up back in the lobby or it would at least send us back to the endless battle screen. That is not what is going on here. The system literally locks up and my only recourse is hitting the power button. The home screen won’t even come up. I would appreciate any help possible since this is making the game hellish.
It is worth mentioning that I am not the only one in the group who gets a frozen screen. It seems like it happens at random to one player in the group and they will have to restart their system.
I have a nat 2 setup with direct wire to router. My ports are open. I tried multiple routers myself as well as some of the other players.
My ps3 is about 1.5 years old.
