I am 100% aware that this issue has been reported many times already, but I just want to put my own experience out there just in case it may make a difference. It's a simple bug (From our perspective).

We play a game.
Die (Or win)
Leave to the menu
Click ready aannndd .....

This happens solo or with other people actually in a squad. This could be related to the one where everyone is ready but the other people get into the match and you're stuck at the menu, OR you get inserted late into the character selection.

I just got this on ps4 ?

 

A restart of the game does fix it though. :\

It may be a temporary fix, but it doesn't fix it altogether. Doing that every single time gets incredibly annoying. In most cases it'll fix itself, but the time varies. This shouldn't happen in the first place.

So you keep saying you're working on it, but the latest Reddit thread doesn't mention it at all, so yet another patch coming that doesn't address the issue.

You dont need to do that. Faster fix: just press options and then the motion pad. You then go back to the sartup screen, then press X and you are back in the lobby. But you need to reinvite squadmembers.

The steps above seem to be the easiest workaround solution for this. Those on PS4 have had success putting their console network in DMZ mode as an alternative method of getting around it too.

Is this annoying when you experience it? Absolutely. We're not going to pretend it's not, but we're also not pretending when we say it's being worked on. For this particular bug, it's taking much longer to fix than what was anticipated. Some factors that can contribute to that could be the following below:

 

  • Is it easy to reproduce and fix when compared to other reported bugs?
  • Can it be fixed in the next upcoming patch without breaking more game features?
  • Severity of impact on community. 

The Battlefield V team has an "Issue Identification and Communication Process" which has a great explanation on identifying issues and defining severity which is worth a look if you're curious on what goes into the process of bug fixing.

 

We really really do appreciate your patience on this and we can tell you it's been added to the reports we send to Respawn every week. We'll keep relaying your thoughts to the team around how it's negatively impacting your enjoyment of the game. When there is a list of all the things in a game the community wants or needs to be fixed, the team will do it's best to knock them all out but there will be prioritization. What was mentioned in the recent Respawn Check-In should not come to a surprise to those in the community as they are features of the game the community has been very vocal about.

What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Readied up, waiting to connect.

What happens when the bug occurs? When I try to hit ready, it says "party not ready" but my teammates are ready. It will also give me the same message when I am not on anyone's team and just trying to play a random game. It also will put my teammates into a game and leave me in the lobby sometimes. Or I get a connection error message.
What should be happening instead? Should be entering the game with teammates.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? IDK

This has been going on for at least 2 months for me. I waited this long because I thought the updates would fix the issue. I was wrong. I love this game but because of the issues mentioned above, I am unable to enjoy it. Which is extremely frustrating because I bought the battle pass. Please fix this.

104 days since launch if I counted right, thats how long this issue has been out aswell.

 

Eta on fix = non existent

Are they even close to fixxing it? Nobody has a clue

Is the game dying day by day still? Yes

 

Whoever is working for fixxes at respawn must be getting paid in potatoes for salary, noone can be this slow at doing their job.
