Not the first to report this issue, but since launch there has been a bug in which Apex loses connection to the EA servers after a game or while trying to log in. ". Check the network status. Now, this change is fine if you have a dedicated group of people you play with and that line-up never changes.

Select (Party) from the function screen to view a list of the parties you can join. Now, you can only invite users via pre-formed message groups. I literally can't do anything with the network right now either. Easy right? It has interlinked the messaging system with party functionality to, on the surface, make sending off numerous party invites at once a complete breeze. Select (Party) from the function screen to view a list of the parties you can join. @UnlimitedSevens I just double checked. This is such a glaring issue that I can’t believe it wasn’t picked up on in the beta. Especially for people that look for fill one for groups regularly. I’m confident this will be resolved by the time I get a PS5 in the next couple of years. You can add players to your group. Now - you have to create the party pool only once and those who are in the group are able to join whenever they want without your assistance. It's weird, but it's who we are culturally - we are very sensitive about it for some reason. You can also select [Party] on the quick menu to start or join a party.

Well it was in beta for months so it might the minority who are complaining. Ive had so many times my friends would have a chat private from me just because they forgot to set it on public and id miss out on important discussions all because sony had to change the previous party chat functions.While individual message party invites seem annoying im glad they changed the private party chats back to what it used to be. You can start parties while you're playing games or using other applications. Hopefully if enough people let Sony know how awful the experience is they will fix it or revert it back to it's previous state. @Henlak- next time I'm in a party I'm gonna test this out. An umbrella statement like you "agree to be recorded" for moderation purposes could be valid if you agreed to it, but you would have to agree to it every time you initiated a chat for it to be legal here in my state, I believe. â¢ View other â¦ This update is trash. Sony, FIX THIS *****!!!! With American media corporations getting increasingly idealistic and nosy into other people's business and morals at the same time. Before update 8.00, you could simply start a party by opening up your friends list and popping off invites to your buddies. I had this update from June and didn't have any problems. A child who is restricted by parental controls can't join parties. Use (Party) to voice chat with your Friends and other players. The problem seems to be affecting PC and PS4 sessions, along â¦ I changed accounts, and my internet connection and finally got open, friends still can't join. That seems pretty bad. I play a few online games with a large number of players, but not always with the same people, and now every time I want to be in a party with people I need to create a new group? Today is the only day of the week that they can actually play because my son has a half of day of school. When you start a party you then have to invite people into your party. Please use Russian.

No uninvited players would join and spoil your livestream. Honestly i never liked the private party feature. Stay connected to your gaming friends and the games you love to play, wherever you go with PlayStation App. Their little "By joining, you agree to be recorded"" would be laughed away in court.

Doesn't bode well for PS5, considering it's only a month away.

I knew that you could record audio already but you could just hop on party settings and turn it off but like you said now that they've gone out of their way to moderate you themselves it looks like thats out the window. Report Save. Im just annoyed that they're allowing people to record your party audio now. PlayStation Network (PSN) allows for online gaming on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita game consoles. Might be time to jump ship back to microsoft. When you guys can't fix the problem you just send me a survey asking how ea service was. @scarecrowknife @710King Go for it let me know how it goes. Wow, who thought this was a good idea? Join a party that's already started. They couldn't play today because of the update. Once party made the other 3 can join or ignore it. @MFTWrecks nah you got it wrong. Warzone is an example that was mentioned, and Dead by Daylight (there is no voice chat in the game, so you NEED to be in a party) is also going to be a huge inconvenience to set-up parties, and manage new people that are coming and going. The subsidiary is called Sony Interactive Entertainment and they have two legal corporate entities for Japan and America. You would have to create yet another message group purely to send them an invite, when before you could simply list the party as public and they'd be able to join by themselves. @AdamNovice To be completely fair, it was the minority who was in the beta. @LiamCroft Someone just sent me this:https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/417160488502165524/766042610816516096/image0.jpgWill Push Square do an article on it? Not sure what people are complaining about. Its annoying :/. Doesn't bother me so no not All ps4 owners WORLDWIDE some that like others not bothered. I haven't even had time to look but hopefully Sony will roll this back and fix it. Also if you wanna talk about anything really private I suggest you use your phone or something that isn't in the Playstation eco system cause something tells me your non game related actions could effect your account if they're now actively listening to you and allowing recordings to be taken. @LiamCroft Yikes.

Am I the only one experiencing party chat failure? The implication is that as soon as you join a voice chat, the system will begin recording. Of course a big company like Sony probably knows something I don't, since apparently this has been going on since the PS4 era. Just to send chat invites? A Black Ops Cold War player reached out to Dot Esports with a possible fix for the âunable to join partyâ crossplay bug on Nov. 19. Okay so yeah I pretty much hate the new party system. Also lets them record your voices in party chat for moderation? I'd rather not have what I'm saying monitored on my own console in my own house with no way of saying no, and this is likely gonna be standard for PS5 now aswell. @scarecrowknife That message has been around since the PS4 came out, it’s just being resurfaced again as part of the update. Am I understanding this correctly? Hopefully they can incorporate both methods in a new update. Anyone of my friends can just join? Who tested this and thought it was okay? Not only can you not easily get into a party but everygame i play says its unable to connect to psn. This can't be real. It's really irritating to navigate, it wastes a lot of time, it lags the PS4 when you're trying to do this in some games, it's just all around terrible. What this update has essentially done, as far as we understand it, is introduce so many more steps to forming a party than there needs to be.

Many PS4 owners report not being able to join a party â¦ The past week I have had a strict NAT type and cannot join any of my friends unless our 1 friend is on who has open. What they've done to the message/ party system is atrocious to say the least.

I never liked it and I especially didn’t like the message that popped up when me and my friend logged into our party the first time during the beta and it said that our party chat audio could be monitored and recorded and we had to agree to having our audio recorded. I try and join a party with a friend, but no matter what I do, who is in the party, or who starts the party, I can not join it.

I'm primarily a pc gamer but I own all 3 consoles and when I do pvp gaming I do it on my xbox because pc has cheaters and I find xbl to be a better service. Im fine with this update. I went to college for business law (don't ask how I became a police officer haha), which included some coursework in contract law. So i installed the update and yep friends list failed to load and error code blah,blah,blah...so installing yet another big warzone update (copying takes the biscuit) and then my friends list is now working perfectly so maybe it take a while to synch up? I guess it could be necessary incase of child groomers abusing the feature, but a better way might be to put limitations on how an underage account can accept friend requests and interact with other users. This update is horrible. It works perfect for me as I don’t need to invite anyone anymore. This is why you hear those automated messages when you call a customer service hotline your conversation may be recorded for quality assurance needs.

It's even tougher to test the feature properly right now anyway because friends lists aren't loading in. @Constable_What My point was if this was such an issue then it would surely have been flagged in the beta. @Jagskill Bonkers. I think just by looking at the fact that I didn't sign up due to that reason we can gauge that a lot of people offered the beta didn't go for it and the reason for that is the above.

Reddit PS4 and other Sony-focused communities are pleading with the Japanese giant to revert back to the original system as the updated party mechanic is now presenting so many more problems than it needs to. if its set to no one may join, thats your problem.
