It's not my internet and I can't sign back into PSN without restarting my ps3. Any others having the same problem?

This is way more aggravating than being dc'd.

Exact same thing has happened to me a few times in the last couple of days. Definitely a Defiance thing and not an internet issue.

I have had this happen, and the only other game that does this for me is Battlefield 4, Every other game I play does not do this to me at all, it has done it to me when I have had my PS3 hardlined into my router.

welcome to Defiance, you must be new to the new Frontier. Remember to lock your roller and keep an eye out for raiders. Your stay here should be a pleasant one except for the constant Disconnects that have plagued our lands since the terraforming spike went off in April of 2013.

Also happening to me a lot in the last few days, especially during DM monoliths. I have been playing defiance 5 months, I have always suffered defiance DCs, but quite rare I got a PSN DC, even then, if I checked my router logs I usually saw a network glitch. Not now, router log is clean. Found if I (menu) quit the game and started it again, got a PSN DNS error. Only way to get back on is to restart the PS3.

One theory I have, which is probably crap, is that the PSN network is being overloaded by activity caused by destiny downloads.

Not sure about the psn, but I can't remember the last mono I played from start to finish and I'm xbox Na. With every hotfix they release for stability, my game gets worse. I've tried everything anyone has suggested and nothing has worked. Played for 45 minutes this mourning, ran two monos and critted 4 times. It was enough to make me log out and give it a break.

PSN disconnections-not normal disconnections from Defiance- where it says you have been logged out of PSN, is most probably due to Destiny.

If you read some google news about it, there has been a huge rise of PSN glitches and dc's, due to overwhelming demand that Destiny players are putting on PSN, it will probably will happen for Xbox too.

Haven't noticed any probs while playing Destiny, but, when I tried Defiance recently, I got psn dc'd about 3 times.

Thanks Ace, looks like you have confirmed it is the PSN network.

Found http://downdetector.co.uk/problems/playstation-network, gives a graph of PSN network problems (also .com). Next time I get a PSN DC I will check it against that. This seems to be reported problems, anybody seen anything more official, though I guess Sony are not going to show how crap their network is.

On ps3 I stopped fast travelling and doing anything around any amount of people yesterday. It was impossible, noticed it was happening around the hour mark too. Twice I was disconnected from the PSN network too.

I would make tickets but they haven't answered any of my tickets in game and even deleted mine from the PC system... I feel a big "and so" reaction when that happens. The only way there has been communication is on here so I come here and say "still broken".

You should be getting responses, unless you're submitting bug reports or you don't have your Trion Worlds account linked to your Defiance gameplay account. It's important to have them linked if you're submitting them in game so that we can send you an email response.

Kiwi, can memory leaks cause hard freezes?

Greybush
07-21-2014, 12:26 PM
This problem is limited to, and only to Defiance on my end. I can play any other game or run any other app on the PS3 problem free. Playing Defiance is the only thing that ends in me getting kicked from game or app, losing internet and returning to DNS errors. It's also getting progressively worse. I will not be wasting time with live chat for something like this as I'm already certain they have no idea what the cause is or the remedy.

Well the Destiny beta will be down today and tomorrow for maintenance. So if there are problems again on Wednesday when the beta starts again I think we can safely say it's because of the Destiny beta traffic.

You're completely misinterpreting what they are talking about. They are not talking about the critical disconnect issues. They are talking about getting signed out of the Playstation Network while playing. People getting signed out of the Playstation Network has not been an issue since launch.

So I finally bit the bullet and bought a flashdrive saved all my save game data then I did a default reset on my ps3. Now my ps3 runs like a dream but my defiance experience is the ****ing same. One hard freeze since Friday. Several dcs a day, at least 20. I tried to get into the island exp coop and got dcd 7xs in a ****ing row. I was about to break my disc.

I've been getting this so often lately on NA-PC side that I've just about decided to walk away from the game, even with all the free Patron Pass time I have left from the Vet reward and the TV show codes.

Nothing like trying (repeatedly) to complete the Incursion contract for 7th Legion, only to spend upwards of 30 minutes going from site to site, then having a disconnect by Stage 4 or 5 of the final event, only to log back into a completely different Shard where the final event is not taking place. If I'm lucky, there's another early stage Incursion somewhere on the map I can rinse-and-repeat the process all over at. And logging in and out never gets me back to the original shard with the final event going on.

It's to the point now that the frustration with Defiance is out weighing the fun by a serious magnitude.

Being disconnected in the middle of a Co-Op or a major or minor arkfall (that I friggin wasted the spikes to call down) is another point.the almost one week that I was off of the game I seriously reconsider reinstalling the game I've just dealt with this for a full year and I just felt like no more please lol. Still a fun and interesting game though I don't know if I could ever truly walk away

Well, I've played Champions Online, Star Trek Online, and Neverwinter. And when Defiance hits me with more server issues than Cryptic ever did, there's a major problem. And Cryptic servers are notorious junk, ever since they expanded to running all three games off one cluster.

I just installed Diablo 3 again (never did finish that one), and purchased some G-Coins for Marvel Heroes, which I've been enjoying a lot the past few months.

Pretty much breaking from full MMOs until the Warlords of Draenor expansion drops in December. Tried Wildstar on a buddy key, too. Didn't care much for it.

I have been playing since beta, my console is connected... just ignored. I have done feedback and bug reports as well. I have one open ticket on pc still, the ps3 tickets disappeared as did all of my pc but one. I play because of the show and go on hiatus when its off the air, so its not like I am flooding the system all year round.

Tried live help once, unless things have changed I dont have that kinda time or nerves in my old age. :)

Surprisingly on XBOX NA i have not disconnected from a monolith or warmaster in a couple weeks. One of the recent patches had to have done something to fix this. The only disconnect i had was the other day from getting two group invites at once which gave me a hard freeze rather than a disconnect

Not that Trion will do anything constructive with this information, but if memory serves, this has only been happening to me at infected seiges and incursions. Though I've cautiously stayed on the outer reaches of any major arkfalls to avoid this, seemingly with some success. But I can't speak for everyone's experience.

Twice yesterday on Kenn Farm, twice already this morning, Kenn Farm and Volge Siege. Waste of time me even trying anything major until this is sorted.

Please PC/xbox users don't derail this thread with your disconnect sagas. This thread concerns Playstation Network (PSN) disconnects probably caused by too much activity on an already crap network. It seems to be a recent thing, last two weeks, and maybe related to destiny usage, though has destiny finished now ?

Disconnects from the game yes, Disconnects from PSN no.

The PSN DCs while playing Defiance(and only when playing Defiance) that neccessitate repowering the PS3 to restore PSN access started at least a couple weeks before the Destiny Beta for me and several other people. It is not related to Destiny at all. It is most likely some errant Defiance server chatter misbehaving as it traverses the network.

Please don't help Trion pass the blame. They need to figure out what they are doing on their end or the client that is causing this.

Indeed. Nevermind that I've played since the beta on the same internet connection and the PSN repowering issue is new this past month or so. So sad to see the same old isses return(constant DCs, freezing and new faction point spending keeping you from gaining rep independently of the rep currency) mixed with new(PSN booting ). Also, still getting booted from entering arkfalls and now I also freeze at the end of incursion seiges, but only if I need the daily rep. If I don't need the daily incursion contract, I can run them nonstop. Something about incursion contract fulfillment seems to break the client often.

This is why I will be contacting Sony customer support. Trion doesnt take this serious so maybe Sony can push them in the right direction...it has been weeks of this and they dont even acknowledge a problem.

I urge everyone else experiencing these PSN disconnects that require a system restart to do the same.
