I have the solution for everybody (I don't know if can be valid for PC users), remove more friends as possible from your friends list.
I had the CE error on Ps4 since Season 2, after 2 or 3 games I crashed everytime, today I can play more than 12 games with no crashes, and still no crash.
I had more than 680 friends, now I have 230.
That's it? I lost 500 today from solo queues lol. But I do keep getting code:net and booted mid game. I'm on my last abandonment not by fault warning though. I hope these servers can be fixed.
Same thing is happening to me. I literally have it hard wired ps4 and still manages to freeze and eventually kicked out to the tittle page. After trying to reconnect about four times, apex tells me I was AFK then get penalized. This is ridiculous.
I also have crashed due to being placed in a glitched lobby with the only way to leave is by abandoning the game. Then penalized. I have also had the game crash or freeze and be penalized. It just makes me not want to play, so i play something else instead. Why wait 10m+ for a broken game that will probably just do it again with a longer penalty next time?
Just here to point out, that over a year later, this same problem is occurring. Computer just crashed(i suspect it has something to do with the windows update that i have been putting off, for this exact reason mind you) and when i try to hop in and reconnect, well the match was over. My friends told me we got third. They did. I got an abandon game penalty.
Good work Respawn. Doin a bang up job this weekend.
