I don't play Starhawk too often anymore because of this issue that never gets fixed. I love the game. It's very fun.
However, every time I get kicked to XMB, I get so annoyed that I don't play the game for a month. I guess the developers don't care because they already got my money, but this game would be soo much better if those bugs were fixed.
I don't frequent these forums much either, I'm not sure if there's something you can do to prevent the kick to XMB or if all the players here just became calloused towards them, but it's frustrating putting 30 mins into a round, just to have your ps3 bug out. I don't want to risk my ps3 to that.
So Santa Monica, please try to find a way to fix this.
ya there are already a couple threads that have adresssed the problem. You can't personally avoid them, only other players on the other team can by not placing air mines everywhere. Even 4 airmines by one person can produce massive lag in game, when more then one player on the other team is spamming them they cause extreme lag and almost always xmb kicks. If you see them in the air then do your best to get rid of them.
From what i've seen airmines placed by your team cause the other team to lag/xmb kicked, and mines placed by the other team causes your teams lag/xmb kicks.
also i would like to add from my own experience gatekeeper and dogfights are the only exception and don't cause xmb kicks when air mines are placed in those game modes even though they still will produce massive lag.
