Hey guys, I was hoping I could get some advice or hopefully some people with “Yeah, that’s happening to me too!”. I’ve been playing this game on XBL since the day it was released, and I almost NEVER had any connection problems. I regularly play games online, and I’m always listed as 4 out of 4 bars, or 3 out of 4 on connectivity. As we speak, my X-Box (in the settings I’m looking at) sits at 3 out of 4.
However, as of last Sunday, its rare I can make it through 3 rounds of a SF4 match. I’ll get into a match with another player (with 4 bars usually, 3 at the least. I NEVER play below that), and everything is smooth and running fine. Then, all of the sudden, the game will get RIDICULOUSLY laggy and the connection drops. I thought maybe it was the network having issues, but now its been going on for over a week, I’m pretty sure its me.
What could possibly cause this?? How is it that a game, overnight (Things were awesome that Saturday night), can go from great to God Awful? And its JUST SF4 too. I still play things like Call of Duty online, and have no issues at all.
At this point, I can finish about 1 out of 4 matches I start, and with the upcoming disconnect watcher thing happening, I do NOT want to be lumped in with the nutless ragequitting crowd. I’m so frustrated, I’m honestly considering just being done. And I love this game, I’d rather not be.
