@gunns

The game kicked me out. I was the only one that was kicked out, not losing connection to the host.

I guess I was too good.

SMH at this entire thread.

With all the little issues that can be fixed with a simple codd change, the Dev team is going to waste time compiling data for an issue that is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to diagnose and fix.

MacGruber this is a pointless thread.

The freezing and crashing is caused by a PSN issue. Every single Multiplayer game played on the PSN is subject to this crashing. It occurs when a Host abruptly exits a match and migration fails. (This is common because of the need for wannabe elite players to rage quit). Your PS3 will continually send outgoing data requests to the last known host. No response is ever made because, host has disconnected from PSN; and migration failed. I can literally write a 2 page list of MP games that this freezing issue occurs with.

The only "fixes" you and your team can implement are...

A) Create a Goto screen for when Host Migration fails. (This may prevent systems from continually looping host request, but will not fix crashes to XMB bar)

B) Address the nature of rage quitting. There is no penalty for signing out of PSN mid game. Everyone does it. This is the main reason for such freezes and crashes.

Unless you plan on helping SCEA rewrite their network, this is futile waste of resources on your teams part. Give the god **bleep** Machete lower loadout points already. How long does that take? 2 days?

What?

 

No, this isn't a PSN issue. 

 

I've never had any other game cause so many console freezes and black screens as this game after a certain live update (don't remember which one)

 

Before that update, freezes and black screens did happen, but were very rare. 

 

It has something to do with the game's coding, not PSN's

 

Instead of a technical fix, you want them to do a balancing one?

Re: MP Freeze/Crash Report

well to be fair, out of all the games I played on my ps3 for years and years, I only had 2 games freeze more than 1-2 times while playing it. That was Uncharted 3 and The Last of Us, and while UC3 wasn't too bad, it still happened a handful of times to get annoying, and well we are all experiencing how often it happens on TLoU.

Im sorry but when you have players abruptly signing out of PSN midgame because of whatever asinine reason, you're going to get these crashes.

I believe Slapper is right. The vast majority of games out frozen in, my team was beating the other one by a wide margin and people start quitting. I've had so many occasions where I've gotten a hadshot on someone, just to freeze a couple of seconds after.
