"The network status has changed"
"You will be sent to the main screen". Or something like that. Now I've got this message a couple of times. I am not complaining (for once ) may I just know what kind of message is that?
BTW Now I managed to get into Ranked and Unranked games. I could get into the game option screen. usually after that the game starts- Still half of the times (Failed to host, Failed to join). Is gamespy working on the servers? I saw a similar pattern with GTA4...
I got the "network status changed"-message when I signed in/out of PSN.
Since patch 1.20 I've mostly gotten ranked matches without error messages (there has been freezes leading to loss and some that hasn't uploaded score though). When I get those error messages, I just try again and it usually works after a couple of tries.
The worst problem at the moment for me is that it doesn't seem like there are too many players on ranked games on the PSN...
I could not find anyone playing the times i have tried on the psn.
It took a while, but they eventually showed up for my last game...
I guess we're a little short since most people are used to this not working, and won't try.
I'm hoping there will be a few more players showing up when they realize it's started (semi-)working again. I don't believe it'll be as many as if it'd worked all the time though. Hopefully enough to get the games going.
I had empty lobbies as well. Then after 5 minutes there were 3 or 4 games. I believe that this is due to the fact that the games take long time. So the statistics to get available players is low. To get 10 players available every minute we need 600 players looking for a specific game (like Unranked + FFA + 60 seconds time limit) per hour. Liz wrote about 300 players connected at a given time. Which is not too much.

Nope. In that case I get the message "You have disconnected from the network", Which does make sense. easy to check with the new in.game XMB.

so ranked games seem to be working fairly well on Psn? Even FFA?
It depends. I don't remember any problem in the last few days with any ranked game (well, apart maybe that I have to wait for few minutes). Other people said that they can play unranked bet get fails trying the ranked ones.

At times, you often have to work very hard and wait for a long time to get into a ranked game. But if you don't give up, you'll usually find one.

What I don't get about the lock-ups; Even when the game doesn't lock up before you exit to the main menu (from the victory screen), even though the final rank list has shown that you won the game, you'll get a loss from the system.
edit: I'll have to take that back... Although it happened to me once, that wasn't the case. I just got a win from a similar situation now.
