Quit Blaming Rockstar, When You Should be Blaming Your ISP!

Being back home from college made me realize a few things. First one being, the joy of a consistent Internet connection.

 

Both in my dorm and back at home I have wired connections to my PS4. Back at college, I would constantly disconnect or have the dreaded everyone leaves the session problem. However, now at home I rarely have this problem.

 

My Internet speed tests are:

College:

Ping: 5 ms.

Download: 15 Mbps

Upload: 14.6 Mbps.

 

Home:

Ping: 10 ms.

Download: 37.2 Mbps.

Upload: 17.6 Mbps.

 

Both should be fine for online gaming, but I believe that the problem exists because of a connection that isn't consistent i.e. Download/Upload rate dipping up and down. Maybe it's just luck, but I'm amazed that this has changed the times I've been disconnected. Any thoughts?

American ISP's give us crap speeds, fact.

 

Rockstar has also been notorious for server issues dating back to GTA IV and Red Dead.

 

So f*** Rockstar AND my ISP, we the consumers deserve better.

This of course can be a real issue, I had trouble staying connected back when I bought GTA V however the problem was my router settings and not Rockstar. Once I did some tweaking with the port settings and reserved and ISP for the machine being dumped into "solo" public lobbies stopped.

I doubt our connections are the main issue, it's the servers and luck of where you are, I'm in England and most of the lobbies I'm in are full of Americans which is most likely why DC's are common for me!

The OP's problem at the dorm was because everyone there is constantly watching all their media via the network rather than TV sets, all while downloading hundreds of terabytes of pirated movies, MP3's and other content over their tor links, all aggregated into the dorm's completely overloaded network switch :p

There are no servers, it is all peer to peer. Check your facts.

I have a MUCH better internetconnection and i frequently have the "everybody leaves" problem...

Amazingly, my ps3 is connected exactly the same as my ps4, but when i'm using the ps3 i don't have any issues joining sessions, nobody leaves without them actually choosing to leave the session,...

Your internet connections suck. I'm surprised you could open up your browser! You should get 105 mbps like I have.

This this this! Why's that I'm fine on ps3 freeroam, but my ps4 freeroam lags like f*ck, people teleporting, shooting a full clip into their head and then I'm the one that dies.. No such issues on ps3..

That's slow, my crew mate has 300 download and 250+ upload.

 

My internet is slow. Only 5 mps download and around 0.4 mps upload. I rarely disconnect. No problem playing. Just the invites problem.

I was just about to edit my post mentioning this. You would think that Rockstar would have servers dedicated to each region.

If you have that slow of internet then you are the lag that plagues the lobbies. BTW if you do know, whats your mates ISP? Also ask him why anyone needs that fast of internet at home?

Shared internet in your college dorm is not reliable. All it takes is a few people to be watching a film at the same time and your bandwidth gets squashed down to nothing. You can't compare the 2 setups fairly.

I have 100mb up and 100mb down low ping no packet loss when I do a test on my Xbox one. It's rockstars fault. Its sh*t

 

Like an above poster said, I play COD now and have no issues. When I get on GTA it's problems one after the other. Ppl lag, connection losses, new Jesus lag in TDM's. It's atrocious. I sat on GtA last night for 3 hours and barely did anything.

The only way to have an idea of latency is to select a test server near Rockstar servers and not one of your own hometown.

Naw It's rockstar's servers. I can download 10 movies, play Halo CE MP on the computer, and play pretty much any game on my XBO with no lag.

 

My internet is fine, R* is to blame.

I'm on gigabit in Phoenix AZ. 2ms ping / 670+Mbps down / 800+Mbps up hardwired from router to my PS3 (which is running at 100+Mbps every time I to an internet connection test on it) and I still get the emptying lobbies. I don't think it's an ISP issue at all.
