is anyone else completely unable to join ND's servers?

10 replies 161 views Edited May 10, 2014
I'm worried that this is gonna sound like a rant. If so, I'm sorry.

But I am unable to join TLOU servers. Even if I wait at the "Connecting" screen for half an hour. When I try to quit the game, my console resets. The same problem happens with Uncharted 3.

And no, it's not my internet. I've checked, and I'm also able to join other online games wiyh no hassle at all (e.g. 2010's War for Cybertron).

Anyone else? I mean, what's the point of buying a season pas if I can't even use most of it?

I had that problem earlier. Logged out, switched off and tried again and it worked.

I would guess that something happened during the last patch download for you. I'd delete the Game Data for TLOU and then start the game up again.

 

BTW, checking you internet via playing another game, is NOT checking anything really.   http://www.speedtest.net

@Nidhoggr_1971 those are some decent speedtest results. Try testingto servers at least a few hundred miles from your place. As you likely don't play people in your general area very often. Low ping equals good connection.

^thats normal.

Expand the map and pick another location far away. I'm in VA and I test to GA, TX, CA, MN a lot to see more varied results. You gotta imagine that the lobby you find on TLOU is not full of your neighbors. Probably not even within a few hundred miles of you most times. Your speed to them can explain why things act really stupid in game sometimes.

For some real fun, test to Brazil or The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Watch your speeds plummet.

The thing is, you should never be pitted against BRA/KSA players, so those speedtests are pointless, unless you live there.

Your ISP has no control over transcontinental fiber-optic submarine cables. Distance can cause congestion, packet loss and jitter. It's not just gamers that use submarine cables.

 

Ideally everyone should be matched with close players. The problem is that your 5-bar neighbor might be playing Interrogation no-DLC solo, while you're playing Supply Raid DLC parties.
