So Online is working for some people and not for others.

It doesn't work for me. I'm in the UK and get "Network Error" whether I'm trying for Ranked or Casual. It doesn't work for my buddy in the States. Get's the same "A Network Error" has occurred message whether he's going for Casual or Ranked himself.

It's been a week now. Haven't they got it patched yet?

I posted the solution to the error in this post. It's currently the only known fix. I doubt the devs even know what to do.

Bit of a pain in the backside solution as it's going to log me out of services such as Netflix and anything like it. I've submitted an official query to NAMCO BANDAI on their website. If others do the same it will hopefuly pressure them to get something done.

I was having the same issue but found something that works for me. Do the normal ranked search and when you search push the guide button. Stay in the guide until the character select screen. I was unable to get one game and kept getting the network error. Now when I open the guide while searching I have already managed to finish all online achievements.

Give it a go and hopefully it works for you as well.

Summary : search for ranked or join casual room. As soon as it finds a opponent push the guide button. Wait until match connects and you choose players , push guide button to return to game.

We've tried that fix and it's not worked... Or maybe I was pushing the guide too soon... either way when BANDAI NAMCO get back to me at least i can refer them to this video to show them the problem in action so thanks for that.

Hopefully we'll get a patch when they add 2B.

For now the long load times and online bother is killing my desire to play.

I’ve havent played it since, they have themselves to blame if the game flops.

Also can't play online at all (on X) while my friend on S manages to play sometimes...

I don't understand what happens at all especially when the beta worked like a charm for me. cry

I was wondering if anyone has found a fix? Besides the guide button one. That doesn't work for me. I have 3 X1s and I did get this to work on my launch X1 by factory resetting it. I tried this on my X1X and it did not work, do I am at a loss as to how to proceed. I, too, was really excited for this game because of the single player content and the relatively easy online achievements. I didn't think my inability to unlock the online achievements would be due to faulty netcode. I have been in contact with Bandai Namco support 3 times, and they treated me like an idiot each time. Am I sure the Ethernet cord is plugged in? Do I have Xbox Live Gold? I just got tired of their pandering. I would suggest at least trying the reset console trick. You can choose to keep all games and apps, so it isn't that much of a headache. Though, it only worked on one of my three consoles.

I know for sure that devs are aware of the problem and are investigating. Don't know when/how/if it will patched though.
