I edited the title because this is happening consistently and everywhere now. Especially when you first port zones... sometimes it takes a few minutes to smooth out, sometimes it NEVER smooths out.
This has been happening to me since I came back at the beginning of February. It's not my PS4 overheating, it's not my connection (I've 196.10 download, 16.29 upload, 13ms ping). It happens after travelling to a new zone, as if the zone hasn't caught up. Nothing I can do fixes it (I've tried going to less populated areas, etc, it still happens) and it lasts anywhere from a few seconds to a minute.
PS4 NA server, in Ontario, Canada if that helps. It's frustrating.
On the topic of bugs... is the Anvil wayshrine in the Gold Coast going to be fixed ever? It still causes the game to freeze on load and forces you to crash the game and restart it. This happened prior to the TG/DB event. I'm surprised it wasn't fixed before then.
PS4 NA, game frame rate will slow to a crawl sometimes when traveling to a new zone. I notice when I am moving that it is choppy, I move/stop/move/stop, etc. It seems to be like every few travels, doesn't seem to matter where I am going.
I have resorted to Chat, Say, /reloadui. And then several seconds go by while the UI reloads, and I can move again without severe lag and chopping.
With the current event going on, I am traveling with my character to do the WB and Delve quests all over the map, so I am seeing this a lot.
I just came back to the game and this is a problem now for me. I dont know if it was the switch to ps4 pro or some kind of update that caused it but i do not remember it being such a bad freeze before! Its bad and still happening. Please zos update !
ZoS's only response to any issues within the game are, Have opened a support ticket? whats the point? to be given canned response's and directed to stuff that a 10yr old would of already tried.
Then the next is big promises of things being fixed, when is that happening? The interaction with the community is an absolute joke, complaints of performance issues dating back months without acknowledgment of any sort from the community managers(or moderators with a fancy title)
The only interaction the community see's is "were closing this thread, because we dont like that you criticise us or the game" everything is perfect in the sand we bury our heads in.
Absolute full on joke of company.
