Yeah, that definitely sounds like you are dropping packets somewhere. Our MP game institutes a fairly aggressive "anti-cheat" tech to prevent some nasty exploitation by those out there who just want to ruin everybody else's fun.
Are you on a hard line or wireless? Might want to check your signal quality if you're wireless, and if on a hard line, run a speed test. Sorry to hear it!
Funny that I always get accused of lagging in Uncharted when I kill someone (never so far on TLOU but lag doesn't seem to be much of an issue) and yet I never froze once in 12 hours of gameplay with a mic and friends messaging me about the game the whole time.
No, you are not the only one. I'm having that problem now. I had to stop playing a few minutes ago. It's impossible to continue. The character just stays there and i can't move. It lasts for over 20 seconds. Never had a problem like this and i play many MP games.
Almost everyone is experiencing this problem which is a big issue, so is getting kick out of games randomly or because of rage-quitting host. These are a big issue which should be dealt with ASAP or else most people might just quit the game before the MP events start to pop up.
