I don't work for EA, but I adore BioWare's Mass Effect, Dragon Age & Anthem.

The Devs don't come here anymore, we basically just talk amongst ourselves now.

 

They should rename these forums Ravenholm.

Well, when i load into freeplay, the loading screen keeps getting almost all the way done and then kicks me out to the frostbite screen.

Welcome to the club.

 

I have this issue since release and not even tech support had any ideas to fix it.

Some days it's definitely worse than others.  I'm getting kicked a fair bit today.  It's taken several tries just to get to an expedition screen so I can clear my backpack.

What are your system specs? How much free space do you have on your C:\ drive? How long does it take to load into the game when it does happen? Saying “fix your ****” doesn’t help anyone fix anything, and it could be a case of you needing to fix some **** on your end.

I suspect it's venting due to frustration.  If OP is the same as everyone else, they have already tried everything.  

 

I can't remember what the seven stages of grief are, but I'm at "acceptance".  I haven't hit "hope".  I'm more at "apathy".  No point getting angry anymore.  Nothing will get done.  Kind of like Fallout 3 Gold Edition.  You just lived with it.

 

For those who have no pilot errors, etc, I am happy for you.  You are truly the blessed.  As for the rest of us, stronger together lmao.

Sadly, I think his rig has less to do with it than the latest patch(or 2) by Bioware.  I have had pretty good times getting into games until the last patch.  Before the last patch, I would get a "can't find pilot error" about a third of the times, but since then I haven't played much cause of game issues.  As an example, yesterday I logged in to play, got booted by can't find pilot error, logged back in, got to freeplay, and in first encounter got a green screen system freeze which required a reboot of my rig, and the third time I got in, I managed to play about 10 minutes and game crashed to desktop....I quit for the day(s).  Up until the last patch, the game was pretty stable, meaning maybe a crash during a week or two of play, and only some pilot error, but that changed last patch.  Add in the abysmal loot drops that I get, and it is hard to want to play the game right now....will probably wait for next hotfix or patch and see what's what.

I seldom agree with you, but this time you made me laugh, and I mean in a good way!

I've been one of the blessed when it comes to Anthem, yet I know frustration from other games.

I've got enough hope for both of us.

I do hope everybody's problems with this game will get sorted out rather sooner than later.

And I honestly believe the devs are working on it. 

 

Stronger together!
