Game running horrible now

Recommended Posts

Game ran great until launch. Going into combat I'm lagging up so bad. Please either add more servers or get a fix out please.

I've noticed this when my playstation gets hot and the servers are crowded. I turned off my PS4 for 5 minutes and it was running great. It could've just been a coincidence or serer issues. I've also noticed disconnecting for a few seconds clears up a lot of combat latency. Hopefully this maintenance will help resolve it.

Same issue. Too much lag, especially during combat. Been disconnected from server 3 times today. Tested a few other games and they ran with no such issues.

At the moment, as im heading back into the game after my 3rd disconnect, all the available servers are "crowded". 

Looking forward to new servers.

You won't get new servers. Valencia update on Xbox was very crowded and people were screaming for new servers. It settled after a month when the initial influx of new players went away. 

They actually removed a server on Xbox when they added Arsha the PvP server. Instead of giving us an extra server they replaced an existing one without telling anyone. To save them money no doubt.

I think the issue is more to do with the servers that they host the game on. On Xbox I still get about 2-3 random crashes a day and that's with servers that aren't very busy at the moment. Also it lags in areas and has issues with synchronization between players. Been there since day one and never been acknowledged or fixed so I wouldn't hold your breath.

If that's base PS4 or OG Xbox then I wouldn't expect wonders. 

even on ps4 pro im having the same issues with stuttering and disconnects. they need more servers for sure.

Have you ever considered that this is a hardware issue not the server side issue all the time? 

They are working on fixing it "their" way but for now SSD is what will help you. Besides, ps4 pro is not the strongest console. My life in BDX changed when I bought ssd for my xbox one x

Dont think its a hardware issue since the game was running just fine during early start and it only went downhill when the game launched for everyone which leads me to believe it might be player volume that is affecting these issues and that can be resolved with more servers.

Lag spikes like crazy all of a sudden today! :( Did we have a maintenance with PS4, because my family name change + character name change didn't take effect, or the lag wrecked it xD

I'm using Ps4 Pro, on EU PSN, Serendia-2..... All server are overpopulated so nowhere to go :(

Ps. I have an EU BDO account: absolutely no lag when I play on PC. Ps4 Pro shows 20mb/s download, 4mb/s upload during "test internet connection". PLZ ADD MOAR SERVERS!!!

Well for me the game is worse now than before the last update of the game. I died twice yesterday because my character was stuck and not allowed to move or doing anything just after I closed the quests log... Performance is not great too. Still I love the game, I hope it will get better !

No expert on these issues, but with a full server and a daily quest counting kills, every kill freezes the game for 0.5 to 1 sec.

I stopped at 30 kills because it feels so bad to get a time stop after each kill.

Console runs smoothly btw. so no overheating in this particular situation.

That is terrible news, but I appreciate the info man... this is bad, theres too much lag. Honestly Ive died about a handful of times so far, most of them were from lag spikes during combat; one moment I have full health fighting a mob, the next im catching my final blow coming out of a lag freeze. Ima fall back on BDO a bit.. im down to two friends who still play it and they both bought that control game earlier this week, so ive been solo. Lets see how things go through september, hopefully the lag settles otherwise I cant see me sticking to this. The game feels broken.

Btw, I run a 4 month old ps4 slim. Quiet as a ninja, even during all the lag.

 

They added a PvP server? I thought all servers were PvP after lvl 50, whats the point of a pvp server? Are they adding a PvE server as well?

Yeah they've actually made the servers worse again. People who have been playing on the old Xbox one / one S were experiencing horrendous lag after last patch, which made the game completely unplayable for them. It seems the lag was more to do with the hardware capabilities of the older Xbox than actual server lag, as the Xbox one X was fine. They decided to do a band aid fix for all consoles to combat it by delying the loading and rendering time of NPC's/mobs/terrain. Basically what you have now on all consoles is in internal lag that effects loading times of screen information making you run into invisible walls or get hit by stuff you can't see on your screen.

The company is a complete joke tbh.

All servers are pvp, but the actual PvP servers allows for PvP with no karma penalties. It also give you a 50% increased drop rate on items.

Today i had something interesting happen in Altinova. The lag has been horrible since official launch day but today....the game froze and I had to reformat my PS4 as it crashed it and i couldnt even log in to the PS4. I Reid to rebuild data base but nothing short of reformatting did it. I now have a clean ps4 with only BDO. I logged i logged in, played for 10 minutes and it froze again.

Im pissed i paid $80 bucks, love the game but simply not worth the hasle until servers are optimized.

There has been an issue on Xbox since release that will occasionally give you a system warning message about the system memory being full & the game not being optimized. It will ask you to restart your computer and if you don't it will crash shortly afterwards. I've been told this is a memory leak, which I'm not 100% sure what it actually does, but it's something along the lines of the game not processing & removing memory correctly causing it to leak into the system and reduce performance until its reached its limit. Some people have said that's it's actually caused permanent performance issues on their console.

It seems the game has been ported over from PC and still includes many of the bugs that the PC has had for years.

This explains why every npc takes time to load, like, literally have to stand in front of where they appear and wait a few seconds (literally). Same goes for enemies, they dont appear as you close in on them, they just pop up out of nowhere... so this was a part of a "fix" attempt? Oh man... as if world rendering wasnt bad enough already.

So with the PvP server I can basically go on a rampage jumping whoever I want in PvE, and when I feel like getting back on track I just hop over to the PvP server and get a 50% increase in drop rate. I bet this doesnt sit well with players who favor the PvE experience. I have friends who didnt get on this game cause of the PvP aspect, even though I tell em to this day that its really not that bad... its actually fun, and keeps you on your toes. Anyway..

The game feels broken, and its a shame things on the xbox side havent gotten any better after all this time. This is starting to look like a bad investment.

This is exactly what I'm saying to myself for a few days now...
And I paid for the nearly-100$ edition...

This game is about monsters farming and you really need to cope up with the others because the PS4 servers are too crowded. I knew it was about killing a lot and a lot of monsters and I was OK with that but I had no idea that I'd have to race against other people to get the kills... when you're 10 or more in the same spot, what the hell... and even after switching to another server it's same nonsense... but they will never do anything about that, it's a deep game design thing deep in the game. The only thing they could do would be to make enemies locally available for each player...

I'm really annoyed by the lighting and brightness issues too. The game is always too dark or too bright, when the sun rises and goes down specifically, the game is really ugly and hardly playable...
