Considering it's not server capacity that's causing the problem, there's no reason for them not to release the PS+ version.
I'm not sure how they would be able to do that, I mean without first altering all coding that relates to online functionality, then testing that (because Sony would require that first.) Essentially, all of that would take away from the effort to correct the things that are causing the problems.Anyone have an answer to my earlier question of releasing the ps+ version without online functionality while it's being " fixed"? I know it might harm sales of the full game but didn't they think it through before announcing it?
Evolution themselves is handling all of Driveclub, and they're based in London.
There are more servers coming online and there will be a significant server update to improve performance in the next 24 hours. We will also be running performance diagnostics around this update, but there shouldn't be much disruption or downtime.
This server update will improve online performance across the game and it also brings specific improvements for multiplayer racing and leaderboard updates.
More improvements will follow as we make progress on Sunday and Monday, but we still have more work to do to get everything back on track before we can give you any bigger or better news. We will keep you up to speed.
As always we appreciate your feedback about online play as it improves and about your time with the game in general, so please keep sharing with us.
Today we also released a server update to optimise multiplayer matchmaking so you will now be matched with more suitable players based on the type of internet connection you have, which means matchmaking should be more reliable.
You should be fine with NAT 2 as far as I know - it's more your ping that might cause you a problem though, as that determins the amount of time it takes for info packets to get sent and received.Nah this is what I need. My internet is not good enough to connect with players from various regions...not to mention various NATs (I have NAT 2)
