PS4 BL GOTY Connection Issue

(Callmegoro) #69

I tried opening all the suggested ports and also tried putting my PS4 in the DMZ. Unfortunately, these attempts did nothing. It’s especially frustrating for my because I already own the PC version of this game and only bought the PS4 version, along with a month of Playstation Plus, to play online with two of my friends. They are roommates and so are having no trouble playing with each other, so I told them to go ahead and play without me. By the time this issue is resolved they’ll probably be half way through the game. I feel like I gave 2K/Gearbox $30 for nothing and Sony another $10 for nothing. :disappointed_relieved:

Same here. Only bought this to play with friends. None of us are able to connect to eachother.

According to Sony’s return policy:

Digital content that you have started downloading or streaming, and in-game consumables that have been delivered, are not eligible for a refund unless the content is faulty.

Unfortunately, it might be time for everyone to request a refund if they aren’t taking this seriously:

It seems that there is a common problem with connecting with friends in the borderlands remaster. When you try to join it tells you that you lost your connection with the host.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Has gearbox acknowledged this?

Threads merged.

Yes. it is a common problem. Some folks have had success manually forwarding ports for the game (see up-thread for details and links) but it doesn’t seem to work for everyone.

Well I hope do something soon and let us know what they plan to do.:unamused:

Any updates on an upcoming patch? Please answer if anyone is actually working on a fix or not.

I’ve got it working by enabling DMZ and then creating a game, setting it to offline and then setting it to public. Had a few randoms join almost immediately!

Well this port forwarding business is far too complicated and utterly beyond me…

Guess I’m stuck solo for now! :unamused:

Try toggling the game mode like cookie noted in the most immediately above yours. This has sometimes worked when I’ve experienced the same issue on BL2 on XB1. (Although it doesn’t always work.)

They’re probably not allowed to disclose that

Even if that’s the case, some kind of acknowledgement from gearbox that they’re working on the issue would be nice.

starting to feel like 2k and gear box don’t care

Its only been a couple days. It would be unwise to publicly admit that the launch was a bit botched, from a financial perspective. Kinda ■■■■ business practice but what can ya do. I’m sure they’re trying to get this wrapped up as soon as possible to avoid taking a major hit in sales in its first week, give em a day or two

(Jakeloveu99) #83

like you said it has been a couple of days already . I’m sure people reported it on day one .

(harlenholloway44) #84

Cod ww2’s matchmaking was completely broken for like 2 weeks at launch, these sorts of things can take time

Hey everyone!
I want to let you know that Gearbox and 2K are aware of the problems that players are having and we are actively working on a solution.

I knwo most of you have already, but feel free to submit tickets in to https://support.2k.com/.

Well I think we are all having connection issues online, if you scroll through all the lobbies it shows that there are 3 spots open for everyone excluding the local mulitiplayer games. Honestly I’d just wait it’s been couple days since they released this new version. But my question is, is this just in general meaning both game of the year and regular are having server connection issues?

Iv included my way to get around the not being able to join friend untill they fix this sheet see below.

*can’t join friends or match make (found a temp fix to join friend so joining player hover over the invite send button, get host player to send invite then when it pops you confirm to send ur invite then you press the PS button bringing up the’re invite and join).

*Tearing/shuddering when moving up, down, left or right.

*Poor rendering can just stop randomly making game look like an N64 game.

*Laggy mini map (rotate: on).

*Map displays incorrect information or objective to non-host.

*submitting a ticket just seems to get you what feels like an automated response like we are idiots, please make sure you have ps+ and what error are you getting what are you pc specs, wth :joy::neutral_face::face_with_symbols_over_mouth: on the 3rd I was on the verge of preordering BL3 I downloaded BL1 GOTY in 7min (praise my 402mb fiber) :ok_hand: but my mood soon changed about how I feel towards gearbox and 2k for their poor service absolutely nothing being said on twitter the ignorance is real I’m just not sure I want to give them anymore money let alone another £90 for BL3 :thinking: thoughts.

pretty easy work around that i figured out was to invite your friend to a lobby, have it fail, then they invite you to another lobby and it should work. you can do this on a larger scale with 3 or 4 players, but its a little more complicated.

say there are 4 players each respectfully listed as 1,2,3 4. players 2,3,4 make their own lobbies, invite player 1. player 1 will accept every invite, one at a time. after they have all failed, player 1 will create their own lobby, and then invite 2,3,4. they should all connect without a problem. has worked for me every time
