Over the past couple of weeks, Gearbox’s latest series of shooters have had some seriously wonky server issues.
This is not exactly a surprise. Launching online multiplayer games in various states of “restraint” all the fucking timeAnd the Borderlands series itself He doesn’t have the best track record. But it’s a little different than your typical case of server issues. For one thing, sure, while the servers are tuned, they aren’t engulfed in a five-alarm fire that generates headlines for the way windows are run, for example, Outriders or Diablo III Famous was. On the other hand, while the problems persisted, the game’s official channels were strangely silent on the matter.
Wonders of Tiny TinaReleased late last month for Xbox, PlayStation and PC, is the first Borderlands game Launch with full crossplay. Like previous Borderlands games, Wonders of Tiny Tina Facilitates online collections through Gearbox’s online property service, converts. You can also use the service to redeem Transformation Codes, which are single-use codes that give you a rare piece of in-game gear.

On March 25th, WondersOfficial launch day, account pointed How, even though players might see a notification saying they’ve been disconnected from Shift, they’re actually fine; It’s just a wrong popup. Three hours later, Gearbox said it noticed “reports” of “instability”, and spent the next few days dating its efforts to improve functionality.

“We’ve seen some reports of players disconnecting from online play,” is reading The account’s latest tweet, posted on April 2. “If these issues persist, please restart the game!”
Unfortunately, restarting your game doesn’t always seem to do the trick. In response to the account’s tweet, players say that restarts don’t fix connection problems, and when they do, it’s just a temporary salve.

Earlier this week, for example, I shared with my colleague Zack Zwiezen, both of whom play on Xbox Series X with wired connections. We went 75 percent of the way through the tutorial segment before Zack disappeared into the ether. We couldn’t start the game again for the rest of the evening.

He said they often can’t start a game, even though they’re both running on the same modem. In the rare cases where they can get one, the autofocus is slow and asynchronous. Zack told me how a player would kill enemies, see them die, and make them appear again as if nothing had happened.
