so this bug has been alive for 74 days now, can we make it to 100?



How hard is it to make a refresh button for the lobby? What could that possibly break?

I'd at least like to know if they're aware of what might be causing it. I suspect it's to do with some people's networking settings as some people are getting it and not others, and it's being replicated across devices in the same house on the same network according to some reports. I switched routers a month or so back and suddenly the bug started appearing whereas it wasn't appearing for me before, and have tried numerous port forwarding options to no avail. Are there certain types of networks that seem to bug out and disconnect after a while?

Unable to join or start match after playing a game

Everytime a match finishes, if I try to ready up I remain stuck with a "party not ready" indication even if everyone is readied up. I'm forced to exit the game and load it up again, which is ridiculous. I'm on a PS4

it's nothing to do with your network or anything, it's their account server. 

I've done this thousand of times, if your game finished within like 3-5 min(hot drop etc), then I can matchmake without exit to main screen(which is essentially re-login), it's to do with some sort of server side token expiry that got stuck.

But why does it happen to some users and not others? Is there some network configuration or type of networking that the game bugs out on? I say this because it never happened when I started playing but started happening all the time after I switched routers.

As far as I'm concerned they havnt even looked at this issue yet, I tried getting a straight answer from 1 of the EA guys since one of their messages was passively hinting that they sent the issue forward but like this isnt gamebreaking enough to get fixxed or something. Eitherway I asked if that meant they havnt even looked at the issue and yet to get responded, funny enough.


Anyways 76 days in now, still no look at any momentary fixxes, still no confirmation that they're even trying and no attempts to fix it as of yet. Still a massive gamebreaking bug left unfixxed.

Yeah, I agree, don't think they've really looked at it either. I'm running out of patience so just trying to debug it myself as some people on other forums have also hinted at it being a networking or ISP thing.
