  • this awful connection has become worse
  • Playing online now gives me an empty world; not even the marked ones are there.
    Entering combat trials gives me automatic cancellation, and after a few tries gives me an offline status.
    Wondering if this is a bug or a feature to prevent lagging PvP

    Sharing the same problem as you,nothing more to add ,your description fit the same issue i have.
    I hope they gonna try to use a server selection for geo-political reason & technical issue.

    I don't know if their ping selection is IP geographically related or its only on ping frequency but in case they have an ip selection be carefull of geopolitical affiliation.
    A lot of island around the world could be affiliated to Eu & use Eu server as relay, even through they are in indian ocean/atlantic or else.
    It could be more suitable to have a manual server selection to avoid to care about this kind of issue.

    I had play Absolver since the launching day, i had luck to get a few pvp match free of lag before the two patch.
    I hope for the fix of the lag & connectivity issue, so i can get back to play the game from where i left it.

    Wish the best for the absolver's team & their familly.
    I hope the success of absolver to be a stepping stone for more game.
    Thanks in advance for your hard work to come.

    Yeah same here, waited 10 days for them to fix lag issues and now we have this problem.
  • Krasnoyarsk, Russia
    PvP is a lot better then it was. Teleportations are still there but less annoying. But something is still off. System just disconnect random people from you. I met only one guy during my 1 hour in game. I connected to only 3 PvP combat trials out of 7. Maybe cause of you two cant play without laggs. Maybe its for good. Maybe not. Maybe it's a temporary decision they made. Sometimes AI bots could notice me but couldnt touch me. Their attacks were going through me and so were mine. And one time I was in 1v3 battle with bots. Hardly made it 1v1. A few punch to win and suddenly bot disappears and 3 other guys respawned. I was doomed. And the progress that the last guy tought me also disappeared. Thats pretty annoying thing.
  • How about an update for ps4 lag. How about an update for save corrupts. How about an update for audio distortion after combat trials. How about an update on broken bosses. How about an update for desync. How about putting an early access tag on this game.
  • If the fixes take more than a month then an early access label should be warranted. but if its fixed in a week or two the label could be confusing and discouraging.
    Any word on ps update? how long does generally take to get approval. a couple hours? a day? Will it happen over weekends or do we have to wait till monday?
  • hi why move middle eastern players to asia region lock?? I get 200-300ping usually there where in other games ( Overwatch/Wow/Rust) I connect to EU and get 50-60ping

    Conan Exiles tried to do the same, but they've seen the damage it did to middle eastern players, so they brought us back to EU

    the game became unplayable since last patch, things were fine before this last patch:

    - I can't play Combat Trial anymore, matches get instantly cancelled.
    - I can't interact with other players, I just see them joining/leaving session, and they all have asian/singapori/indonesian names ( and I check their profiles too )
    - Whenever I try to hit a player, I get disconnected from session

    never had these problems before last patch!
  • Man.... As much as I dig that the devs aren't giving themselves the opportunity to hide behind the "it's still prerelease" shield-- I think they -really- could have benefited from an open beta phase.

    :/
  • Devs, sincerely i dont see any improvements with this patch but instead of that, the opposed..
    I wanted to try out the patch today, fighted 3 match and i had this HORRIBLE lag, i was attacking a invisible guy and dealing damage, and i saw my health bar draining at 5 metters from the guy lol..

    The playerbase is getting lower at a dramatical pace, if you dont do something soon, the game will start running low on players very soon.... its a shame because the core game its fun.

    You may want to try it now and same goes for other guys who were having these problem last day, today I can play pvp without any lag and I can queue up for 1v1 combat trial without getting disconnected.


    Thanks devs

    EDIT: There are still couple of fights where you will lag alot, even though those lag fights decreased in a great amount but I hope this gets fixed soon.
  • null
    Yep, confirmed. I tried going online again and the online experience has greatly improved. Things are looking up!
  • after the battle the game hangs
  • I'm not getting endless loading between matches any more but still getting quite a lot of people teleporting during matches or unable to attack in 1st round sometimes.

    In fact it seems pretty consistent that even with people that seem to move normally when stagger dodge is used or when I parry the attack the start rubberbanding quite a bit for a second.
    It would be nice if there was an option to display latency to host. Also if multiplayer will remain p2p I suggest match rating system so that players who have issues when joining each other games won't meet as often, since division by region is not ideal.
  • I seem to be the minority in this thread, but my game has become much more stable. I connect to the servers faster and have not had any lag in pvp since the update. So whatever you guys did, it worked for me. Hope it works out for all you guys!
