What happens when the bug occurs? I ready up it shows I'm ready then just snaps back to party not ready. Also happens in Squads then I have to leave party and join through my squadmates profile to go into the match

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure, I know i'm not the only one experiencing this.

at my breaking point. been dealing with this bug since RELEASE. i love this game but i cant handle it anymore. patches look good but when they drop nothing actually is fixed. only loot boxes cranked to oblivion while people with hundreds of hours on the game suffer with unfixed bugs. here i am crying in the same 30 page thread now looking for any insight, coming up empty handed.

This is the worst support in the world. Thank you very much for keeping up to date. And yes, as you put it, I’m not a “parasite” (I spent more than 1000 hours in the game, and almost all cosmetic skins were purchased in the game). Goodbye respawn and EA, thanks for the disregard, you do not support your fans a bit. Farewell.

Thank you all for the UO trace examples. The team is still investigating this and have reduced the frequency of this happening in the last patch. 

It is still listed on the Dev Tracker and we'll provide updates as soon as we hear anything. As others have mentioned in the thread, if you experience this it can be temporarily fixed by backing all the way out to the connection screen (press start at the lobby).


For those being affected by this every time you play, please contact our Live-Support team or EA Help on Twitter for network troubleshooting if you're up for the task of seeing if quick tweaks to your network can minimize the amount of times it's occurring. Some of you mentioned it's happening non-stop and that's extremely disheartening to hear, my sympathy goes out to you and that obviously doesn't sound like fun at all.


Thank you all again for your continued patience by hanging in there with us on this. We really do appreciate it.


Hey that was a great reply. Good stuff. What now? Give them +XP to help level them up!
Did their response fix it? Mark it as a solution so it helps others!

Error still happening after every game. Game breaking fault which hasn't been fixed since launch. You claim improvements but for who? Then have the audacity to release hard copies of the game for cash. You can't sell a broken game.

@EA_Blueberry here's a bit more info. I dont have this problem anymore. All that changed was upgraded my broadband from 100Mb to 1Gb, I have no idea how is could be related, 100Mb wasn't slow, no other game had such issue, and I stayed with same ISP(UK), they just bumped the limit remotely.

@EA_Blueberry I noticed the bug has now moved to recently fixed tab in the Dev tracker as they believe they fixed it in the last patch. Please can you advise the devs that the bug is NOT fixed, this is the 2nd time they claim to have fixed it. I can only speak for myself, but I was playing today and the bug was still happening when I was In a group with my friend. I had a leave the party and re join every game as I have since launch. 


If I play alone 9/10 the party ready tick doesn't appear but it loads me in anyway. The bug still happens 100% of the time when I'm in a group with anyone tho. 


Anyone else who is still getting this bug please message on here to let them know and alert the team the bug is still persisting.

Played again today. Happened after every game when playing with a friend. Or when randomly grouped with someone I met.
