Been getting lots of those freezes as well for a few weeks now.

 

It pretty much happens at random, sometimes at the start of a match or at any moment within it, really annoying and not a clue what causes it.

 

I pretty much can't get a day without it happening now, while in the first few months of release it happened 3 or 4 times, now i can get that daily.

It happens to me at least once every 4-5 matches. Hope ND listens to this and investigates. I don't want to have to restart my PS3 just to play the game.

I get the black screen atleast once a day. Either as the match is loading, or after I die, before I respawn.

This happens all the time anymore. Really annoying to find a game, wait for it to load, and then get stuck in a black screen that forces a manual reset of my PS3. I know it's some kind of glitch on ND's end because this only happens to me when I play Factions. Coincidently it seems to freeze a majority of peoples PS3's because my party of freinds all have to restart when this happens.

 

Handle your sh!t ND!

You mean when you play in a party with your friends and the freeze occurs you actually all end up freezing ? Or you just meant it happens at random to all of you.

Could those freezes be somehow related to the host leaving the game then ? A bug with the host migration maybe.

 

Had one today which happened on the very moment my team won the match, or well, more like was about to.

 

Nothing more than a wild guess tho.
