I still can not play on-line.

I played one single race, and got disconnected before the end.

I am trying to connect right now, and I'm still getting the same server errors I show in youtube.

Since Phenom wants details, I'll give it...

I'm playing in portuguese, so I doesn't know how are the menu options in english... but I'll describe it anyway.

After I click in "Encontrar Jogo", I choose "Correspondência", them "Corrida" or "The Rock". After that, I get a message saying that a game could not be find that matches me.

This time, however, the game is not getting disconnected from the server. I can still see the "global" icon after the error, and I get directed to the multiplayer menu.

I played a lot yesterday (~23:00 to 3:00 CEST 21:00-1:00 UTC) and on average I had a little over 2 disconnects per hour (not evenly distributed though).

That means about every third race! Thats not what I call improvement

I was never the only one that got kicked. Other racers - in my group or not - got kicked at the same time, too. So it seems it is not my setup, it is a game/server related problem.

Phenom, if you cannot reproduce this, I'd be happy to provide a capture of the network traffic to you. Just tell me the pcap filter I should apply (these protocols tend to get very big very fast without a filter).

If you dont know what pcap is: ask your networking team. They will know. If not, we have identified the problem already: have them fired.

Trolling?  lol.   Maybe  you just don't like the facts that I'm posting.

In my experience, the server connections issues persist. 

There isn't a noticeable improvement, and friends that still play the game say the same. 

Like it or not, that's factual feedback.

The most common problems:

* Game invites time out

* Can't join a friends room (time out)

* In the Lobby, and can't find an open room.  Will time out 5-10 times before finding a room.

* At the end of a race, your connection drops and you get a message about issues gathering lobby data.

* When loading a race, you experience lockups.  Game freezes and you have to re-boot.

* Lose your connection during a race

phenom has said that they dont get disconnects with the guys in the office.  that is bizarre and probably not a real world test.

what is the difference.

take your ps3s home, connect them up and play in your house.  and see if the results change.

It has been over 100 Days:

The "People Vs. MotorStorm Apocalypse" thread has still not been answered. and has now disappeared altogether...just like on the EU forum ha ha



...and into another weekend we go..we go..we go..we go..we go...we go...we go...

Just wanted to summarize after being forced to suffer through disconnection-fest, I finally got the Platinum trophy after obtaining the Double or Quts? trophy. I got a sigh of relief after obtaining it. So far, the game rarely disconnects me whenever I finish a race online, and if it does happen to me, I'm not too bothered by it anymore.

You'll always find me anywhere in the world of PSN, whether it be earning trophies from different games, or just chilling away.

yay...the collapsed-tree-legend is back
