We need your help to fix parties

Hey everyone, Dev Tots here.

We are still trying to refine our party system and we need your input and experiences to help make that possible.

If you join up as a party and have any issues I want to hear about it.
  • How many people were in your party?
  • What was the ping of your members?
  • Did you join an in-progress game or start an all new game?
  • What region are you playing from (US/EU/ETC)
  • Any other details you may remember that stood out

The game wasn't made exactly to my specifications, so I feel it's broken.

    6 to 8 players
    North American players
    Almost always creates a new lobby of just players in the party and we wait for others to join in.
    Keeping the party on the same team seems to be very random. Sometimes it will be all 8 of us on the same team vs 5 randoms. Sometimes it will split the party 6 on one team and 2 on the other, even though the lobby is completely full.

    5 in a party seems to be about the perfect amount for keeping every one together, but it seems to throw us into a pre-existing game quite often. Many of which end up being 5v2 or 5v3

    • How many people were in your party?

      6 to 8 players.

    • What was the ping of your members?

      Varying from 40-150.

    • Did you join an in-progress game or start an all new game?

      90% of the time we get put in a game by ourselves, and either people join instantly or we play entire games with no one or one person on the other side, sometimes we're sitting and waiting for what seems like 20 minutes on the lobby screen while it does absolutely nothing.

    • What region are you playing from (US/EU/ETC)

      All party members are from North America.

    • Any other details you may remember that stood out

      The game still separates parties at times, had it happen a few times last night.

    Last night we had 4 at one point and 5 later on. Once it went to 5, we couldn't even get in to a room without losing someone and it wasn't always the same player. What I mean by losing is that they didn't even load in to the server. The lobby host would back out and they would still back out with us but they sat at the searching screen.

    The 5 were in WI, MS, TN, TX and AZ.

    While this is important. I REALLY believe you need to look in to the server issues that are causing the rubber band issue. It happened again 2 times last night, 1 time when we had a party of 5 and I am pretty sure the other side had a party greater than 3.

    The problem we are having is when we put 4 to 8 players in game lags out plus when we go to start game if will not find dedicated server just goes straight to p2p server

    4 party members.
    Ping is not displayed.
    When match is found we are on separate teams.

    I experience the exact same issues F_iction describes in the post and I play between 6-8 players in party.

    We are all North America
    45-80 ping

    Can be on a server and all 8 play together and next map load up we get split it is very aggravating for a game that emphasizes teamwork and communication.

    Some games are already in progress but most of the time we are waiting in the lobby for players to be found to play us.

    Lag has been better since last PS4 Patch
