@munnsy1 We didn't try kicking anyone. But we did have everyone take turns leaving via pan sign out during a stuck loading screen. It never went through. I think it was my friend, who said he had router issues the next day. Regular matchmaking worked five all night
Router could be the issue. I have players on my party who can't hear each other but I CAN HEAR THEM BOTH.
So one of them turned off his PS3 and router, restart and everything is fine.
We also have frequent problem of someone is Party Leader, and someone else UNABLE to join Party. Changing Party Leader helps. But it's still weird consider he can't join my husband's party but he can join mine while me and my husband use the same modem. Both of us wired internet.
