Okay, so while playing BL1, I lost connection to PSN, which was temporary. However, that loss caused me to get booted back to the main menu of the game. I honestly don’t recall that being an issue before, when Gamespy was handling the MP. I certainly don’t have that problem with BL2 or BL:TPS.
I had just killed Pumpkin Head and found Zombie TK in Jacobs Cove when this happened. Getting booted back to the main menu before I could save resulted in my progress being reset, and now I have to due that quest all over.
When the connection dropped, a message popped up notifying me of the droppage, the screen went black, and I got sent back to the main menu.
I’ll be posting this message on the Borderlands FB page just in case I don’t get any responses here.
