Black Ops 2 PS3 Connection Issues: Server Hotfix Resolves Problems
Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2’s connectivity issues on PS3 have caused players wanting to jump into the popular multiplayer no end of aggravation since the game launched.
Treyarch’s game design director, David Vonderhaar, had previously explained that the studio was working to resolve the issues but has now confirmed via Twitter that it has finally issued a hotfix to its servers and is seeing Ground War matches begin much smoother.
“Hotfix 20.135.19. I’m seeing Ground War games on PS3 get started a bit easier. You?”
Though the PS3 version of Black Ops 2 has seen the majority of connectivity issues, there are some reports that the Xbox 360 version is also suffering from similar problems. Vonderhaar also admitted via Twitter that though some players were complaining about the ‘waiting to balance teams’ problems, which is unrelated, the studio would be making an announcement soon.
“The “Waiting to balance teams” thing is something else entirely. More on that shortly.”
On a funnier note, Vonderhaar also tweeted that while the studio was hoping to resolve the conectivity issues, it wasn’t beyond using much less practical methods:
“We put in some black magik on the backend and I sacrificed 3 stuffed animals.”
Update: NowGamer reader @Spikey_Mikey_23 tells us that if you press square during the ‘Game Type’ menu you can select ‘Choose best connection’. We haven’t been able to test this ourselves, but it’s worth trying.
