It's also occuring in lobby races, about 50s into a race. You can be in free practice for as long as you want with no issues, but races cause a DC
And nowhere does anyone say that they have.No, the issues have not been resolved.
Seems to me like this problem is limited to online multiplayer.
players are almost uniformly recording post-race disconnections after online races
Yup. Me too. Yesterday, when I was working on a livery, I kept losing connection when I selected a decal.Doesn't sound exactly like everyone else's problem so it might not be related and probably just a coincidence, but for the last couple of days I have been disconnected after racing free run WRS laps as well as doing the daily qualifier... the icing on the cake was when I was doing a livery in the wee small hours this morning and when I finished... there it was again when I backed out of the livery editor! the you have been disconnected notification and need to click the red icon to reconnect! Now there's no big problem as it connects again instantly, But I just wanted to see if anyone else has disconnection issues outside of the daily races?
Tin foil hats on guys... that update we got last week was instructions to activate the PS4's doomsday switch so we all buy a PS5
Guys here in Iceland reporting that they're no longer suffering from the server issues, seems to be working smoothly now. Haven't test it myself, but heard from multiple guys, so that gives me hope.
There's actually several problems with the new "update":
Penalty system - still ****. Went from B/S to B/B in two races. Never got any penalties - just two SR "Downs".
Constant network disconnects/reconnects.
Daily mileage in upper right corner no longer tabulates properly. Mine is stuck on 61 miles - I've driven over three hours today...
Photos/movies that play while game is idle are hit and miss, sometimes displays black screen with just the text across the top.
Anything else you've noticed?
Well, we were never talking about the penalty system in this thread. We all know it's still a piece of 🤬 which is why there's an entire thread with that very title.
The connectivity issue largely has seemed to resolve for most people, which also fixes the daily mileage issue. I'd try clearing the game's network cache (it's in the in-game options menu) and completely shutting the console down (not just putting it into rest mode). If that doesn't work, you can clear the PS4 cache, as well as rebuild the database. I've had to do both a few times since I've been playing Sports Mode.
I've tried all that to no avail.
I haven't seen any mention of SR downgrades without actual penalties.
