Ok… so, I will attempt to remain calm while I type this up.
How many people have randomly been disconnected today while in-game: thrown back to the title screen, during a match or OPs/story mission?
I’ve been running Toby’s raid (solo), or more accurately, I’ve been attempting to run it all morning. I’ve been doing well, too. Getting all the secret shards, every sub-objective: even the god-awful “kill 10 minions in 30 seconds before they even start spawning” objective.
I’ll be 40 points, 50 points, 60 points into the mission.
Me: “Wow, I’m on a roll. This is going great! Can’t wait to get to 100 OPs po…”

Me: “Oh… no. No, no, no, no, no.”

Me: “No… NOOOOOOOOOO!”

This is the fifth time it’s happened. My connection is fine: intact. Steam is fine: intact. No, it’s not the “your time is up” 120 minute(?) server time-out.
I know someone’s suggested it before, but perhaps temporary local backup saves wouldn’t be such a bad idea, in the event that servers are experiencing sporadic hiccups.
As it is, it feels like I’m playing an artificial perma-death mode (without the death part), where progress is dependent on server-load RNG.
It’s extremely irritating, and I think I’m done for the day.
Anyhoo, I’ll be in one of the Souls games, or replaying Dishonored if anyone needs me.
