The game has crashed on me twice during the arkfall event and i had to hard reset my ps3 to fix it.
Is this a common problem?

You'll need to post this in the beta forums

Quick message anyone that downloads the beta from PS+ and not from an E-mailed code WILL NOT have access to the Beta forums
Sledge has announced that these forums can be used to talk about the Beta

Interesting, I clicked the BETA forums link in my email and it allowed me to register my name. Immediately upon clicking the "return to forums" link to start posting it said I no longer have adequate access.

Well, as we can apparently discuss this here now due to the PS3 NDA being lifted, I"ll note that I too had 2 PS3 crashes specifically during Arkfall (the bug) events as well. One was a soft reset... turn the system off and then on, but the other crash required me to unplug my PS3 to reset it (PS3 slim model). Not a huge issue, many games are known for this, but it's interesting that somebody else also found it to be related to the Arkfall events. It should also be noted that there were LOTS of people at the one's where the PS3 crashes took place.

Overall, it's rare that I would load up a beta and find myself playing for hours and hours and totally lose track of time. The game is enjoyable and I can certainly see the future potential once a lot of the issues like voice chat and grouping and friend's lists (basics) get worked out.

As for the OP's question, what kind of internet connection are you running (up and down speeds) actually not what your should be getting as thats a different issue. I have been testing mine under different speeds by making adjustments to the bandwidth going to my PS3 from the switch. I was dropped as well in a archfall on a lower bandwidth setting.

If your bandwidth is to low you can get dropped at these time it's not the game it just your bandwidth. Let me know the numbers when you can.

I did 3 or 4 arkfalls yesterday without crashing. I didn't actually get anything from any of them, which may be a different problem.

It looks like there might be different kinds of arkfalls. It looked like I had one switch from one type to another and reset progress in the middle of the arkfall. Either that or some other event got triggered and hijacked the arkfall out from under us.

Game crashed on Arkfalls twice last night. But this was a known issue a month ago on the last PC beta. Not sure how much patching in this build has been done for the console port.

Same thing happend to me. Here is a copy/paste of what happened after I tried to view the beta forums after getting a Trion beta invite, not a PS+ one.
