When I start a ranked match alone or with friends, the game gets stuck on the lobby and it says “waiting for other players.” After a few minutes, it fails and says “failed to establish connectivity”

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)

:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Start a ranked multiplayer match 3v3
  2. When lobby forms, most of the time (75%), 4/6 or 5/6 players connect, but the last 1 or 2 fail and the game stays stuck at “waiting for other players” and then “failed to establish connectivity”

I’d be able to play ranked multiplayer games without these issues.

Memory dump, log files, and screenshots with PST timestamps of when this occurred. I have a reliable internet connection via ethernet, so it’s not my internet.

Solution would be to bring back ranked lobbies ! Quick search is full of bugs.

I honestly like the quick match. I just wish they would fix the bugs.

same here. They should fix it already -.-
