Have been trying to play games of last of us over the last ten days and EVERY match has had intermittent lag.
Usually if I'm running alongside my team mates with them in my view they will glitch forward a little bit, as if the game drops approximately 20-30 frames. This occurs frequently
When I come up against enemy players, especially when stepping out from behind cover the game will freeze for a second or two, with the white connection sign showing up. (The plug)
At first I thought it was a random one off or two, however I turned off all the wireless devices, made sure no downloads, uploads, vpns, etc were running and even restarted the playstation before trying again. The lag still prevails.
At this point I figured I'll give sony the benefit of the doubt and waited until the psn update went live today which apparently was meant to sort out these issues.
Yet the last five games I played all suffered from the same issue.
I've also tried other games online to see if it is an issue on my end but they all seem to play fine with no lag of glitching at all.
The main issue I have with this is when I was playing the ps3 version I rarely had these issues, at least intermittent lag. Since upgrading to the remastered edition and now paying a subscription I have had constant issues. Does that sound fair? Does that sound like quality customer care to you.
I will delete the game, reinstall and see if this solves it, however I am curious what no d have to say so for arguments sake lets say reinstalling the game did not fix the issue.
Anyways, hopefully there is a solution..
Hi, playing the last of us right NOW. Everything seems to work fine but when I arive at the ranche chapter the game crash. On my horse in the Woods. Fight against some people and drive futher. But then at some point there is no ground anymore. It's like i'm flying and tommy also. I tried many times. Still Can't go futher..
so I play competitively, which means rushing and out of cover shots, but when that little "Symbol of Imminent Rage" pops up, you are stuck in place for the duration that the symbol is on scree, and three seconds after it disappears, this is constantly in every game I play and its really ruining the fun for me, the way Lag works in Factions is complete and utter BS
After entering Supply raid mode, the first minute the games runs steady then the screen starts to show a plug sign and freezes me up, it becomes intermitent and continuosly comes and goes.
I tried all sort of network arrangements as believe was the issues, but just did not solve yje issue, its frustrating. Downstream speed is above 4.8 mbps however upstream is 0.96, I'm suspicoous this is the cause.
Any advice from the PSP team is appreciatted.

Running digital version. I get lag every single match which allows me to keep playing and takes me into a sort of temporary god mode where i can down people but theu cant down me (no one dies) untill lag finishes and i get bombarded from all the weapons and projectiles that they threw during the lag. If i dont get tjat lag i get the white plug lag. Clearly it's not my internet. I find this totally unacceptable to pay for a game and this happens constantly. On Top of that i get kicked from the match for supposed "hacking" and all my survivors die. -.- i have yet to make it through 12 weeks. Fix it please or give me a refund (psn) HydroWolf94
One other thing if you need a minimum Internet speed requirement now could you announce it on the box, save people from wasting money
I can't even without lag all the time, I bought the game yesterday and have terrible white plug lag. My Internet is below, well below these minimum requirements you seem to have ng but I can run every other mp game fine without issue if I am the sole user of the Internet, pls take away this lag punishment feature, pls
I'm having the same problem. White plug seems to appear more when I engage enemies. Didn't have this problem on the PS3 and early days of ps4. It is so frustrating I left my party of friends because I don't want them to suffer on my account. They too experience this problem but not as bad as me. I know for a fact that they have slower speeds than me so it's not my internet connection that's the problem. Please help.
I have also started experiencing this problem. I have been playing factions for a few months now without any issues, however, I have started experiencing considerable lag in the last few days. No issues with other games. Please fix!
@The_Nerdinator - Unfortunately if your Upload speed is less than 1MB, that is going to result in lag, and the behavior you describe below.
Since you said it's a recent development, and changing to a LAN cable results in the same problems (you could run another internet test to be sure) you should probably check with your ISP.
Here's my internet connection test thingies:
NAT type 2
Connection speed download 9.7 mbps
Connection speed upload 171.9 kbps
I've been having exactly the same problem ever since I downloaded the 2.0 patch. Before this, Factions ran perfectly with no connection problems or kicks etc.
I keep getting the white plug symbol every few minutes when I'm playing a no parties multiplayer match, and sometimes I get kicked. This problem seems to have gotten worse the last few days (today I was kicked from a total of 4 out of 7 matches, and the connection was terrible), and it always seems to happen when an enemy spots me, or I spot an enemy and start shooting, which is EXTREMILY frustrating when I want to keep my clan alive but spend half of the match being downed because I am frozen on screen and therefore can hardly pick up any parts!
I don't seem to have this problem with any other multiplayer games on my PS4. My WIFI connection is running at 95 - 100%. I've tried using a LAN cable but It's not any better. I'll post my other stats shortly, but I don't think it's my internet connection.
I'm having the exact same problem. I have a PS4 and am using the digital remastered version. My upload speed is 3.7 mbs and download is 45.0 mbs. The game has been awful online since New Years. Please let us know if there is any way of fixing this!
@Brainzlifted - could you run an internet connection test and post your download and upload speeds?
Im having this problem too! Please fix it ASAP! Its been almost terminal ( every match/lobby ) over the past week and a half with no luck in being resolved on its own. And no lag on any other game i own.
Thanks for getting back in touch with me so quickly. Very solid of the ND team.
Apologies if I sounded a bit rude in my post. I just get a little upset when I can't get quality TLOU. I need my daily fix.
Amendment correction: My upspeed is usually a little higher than 1.4mb, more like 1.7mb to 2mb.
I've basically been playing exclusively no party as I have no friends and I'm all alone :(
...Just kidding. It's been no party the entire time to help isolate if it was just an off couple of days be it me, the servers or the PSN, wherever the issue may be.
I did try playing with all other connections turned off and I still get small, glitchy lag.
I'm no tech wizard, I'm a grunt but I can't see how it's the upload if I still get this intermittent lag when I've been executed and I'm watching other player while waiting to respawn into the game.
During my PS3 days I had the occasional lag or connection issue but this was never the fault of my internet download or upload.
Do you think switching back to 30fps might help? That would seriously suck though. You guys were right; Once you've tried 60fps there's no going back, at least not for MP.
Last thing to add: I'm fairly certain when I first starting playing remastered I didn't have this issue. It only seemed to have cropped up more or less after the xmas lizard squad incident.
Christmas brought me a PS4, hopefully you guys can now bring me that oh so satisfying Factions experience. The best multiplayer I ever played.
Sorry you are encountering issues. Your upload speed (1.4) reported above is a little low, and lag (white plug) is usually an indication of an insufficient connection. As you are already running wired, our suggestion at this point would be ensure you aren't using anything else on your connection while playing factions.
PSN was undergoing maintenance yesterday, so this may also have impacted you.
Are you playing in parties, or no parties?
