I’m playing Battleborn on Playstation 4, so this is from that perspective. If you are playing on PC or Xbox One, let me know if these issues are also affecting you
So since Thursday (which also happened to be the time a PSN update was released) I’ve been having insane connection issues, which in Internet speak means I’m red barring pretty bad.
For me, Incursion on Battleborn seems to be unplayable. I go into matches red barring with the lag being so horrific that it’s a slideshow. A slight movement forward and God knows where I’ll end up that I never planned to. Quick Match (on PS4) refuses to load, with a constant “Failed to connect online session” errors popping up.
This is a real shame, as - I’m sure many can agree - Fridays and the weekends are prime time for Battleborn to play with your online friends and have a chilled weekend. But unfortunately, this isn’t going to be one of those weekends.
I can’t seem to understand why this is happening, which is leading me to believe it could be two issues:
It could be that the servers are acting up. I’ve checked my internet both times when I was playing in the two Incursion matches that I was in and I was at 100%. Yes, sometimes I may dip down to the yellow when I play but in general I have an otherwise healthy internet connection. So it couldn’t be my internet.
2: PSN UPDATE
For me personally, it could also be Playstation Network update that happened on Thursday (or thereabouts), which may have affected online play in general.
I’m not the only one suffering from this problem on PS4, but others seem to be fine, which makes it unusual that its affecting some but not all people.
Anyone else been suffering from unexplained red bars or connection issues, either on Playstation 4 or other consoles?
Edit: Even OPS missions, when private, are red barring.
