Re: Network issues related to Apex in game - 10/20 secs disconnection

★★ Novice
I having excatly the same problem! It's disconneting me from every online service like discord, teamspeak, twitch streaming for like 10-20 sec. It's really strange because there is no packet loss or something.
My system:

Intel Core i7 4790K
Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming3
Corsair Vengeance pro ddr3 4*4gb 2400mhz
Gigabyte GTX1080 8G Xtreme Gaming
Samsung 650 Evo 240gb

Playing on US servers from Germany?

★★★★ Novice

Hello Community.

 

I started playing Apex Yesterday and noticed that sometimes it is a bit laggy, means I rubberband a bit. So I ran Glasswire in the background and discovered that I was playing on US servers. Problem is that Im from Germany and according to other sites there are Servers in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and London. 

 

So why am I playing on US servers than? Did I missed a Setting or a Region selection?

Maybe the same issue on PS4 pro, every 15-30 seconds the game freeze for about 1 to 4 seconds. Don't know what to do.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J141t0IXbE this is my experience on PS4 Pro. It lags/stutters in contexts where connection quality shouldn't even be a factor. Just looking at the character's animation loop in the party screen shows the game stuttering at irregular intervals.

 

I have no idea what they did that could cause this. My brother has a PS4 Pro and does not have this issue at all. He even signed in as me on his PS4 Pro and does not have the issue.

 

Things I have tried:

 

- deleting and re-downloading the game

- deleting my save data

- disabling "boost mode" in PS4 settings (you can tell I'm desperate)

- disconnecting my PSVR from my console

- setting my resolution to 1080p instead of 2160p

- having someone else sign into my account on their PS4 Pro (works fine for them)

 

Someone else not having the same problem on the exact same platform is kind of baffling to me.

Same here, we need a hotfix as fast as possible, it's actually unplayable for a lot of players.

I get this every game, I have tried playing on the very lowest of settings and still get frame drops always while in combat I freeze and it comes back and guess what I am dead lol, I think we need some sort of hotfix as its frustrating that you can maybe get one decent game a night.

 

Cheers
