Yes and I've narrowed it down to UPNP. I can see in the logs that WWZ requests my router to open 41414 but somehow that request gets ignored on my router. Seems like this is due to my modem/router being around 8 years old and the current UPNP WWZ wants it's not supported on my router. I can totally confirm it as I've used a router (different brand) that's around the same age and it suffers the same issue. Borrowed a router that is current (2018 model) and it works. Why this only affects WWZ i do not know but you might want to pass this on to your network team or the like. From my point of view, i'm not buying a new router just for this game since every other game works perfectly fine for me. Yes i can spend very little money on a new router but at the same time i don't want a simple router.
Hopefully you guys can somehow narrow it down as to why this is an issue and get it fixed.
Nothing is blocked outbound i can guarantee you that, I've checked the logs. Firewall is off, DMZ is set to on so everything is routed to me only in and out. Something is not letting me hit your servers when trying to join.
PS: i don't use any sort of anti-virus/malware software. Windows Defender is even disabled.
Still having issues stuck Joining Server. Have had this problem since day 1.
Only way to get it to work is to connect to my friends VPN which he is on a different ISP and on fiber. I have even tried bringing my PC into work and it joins perfectly from there.
All ports forwards are active.
Is there some way the WWZ servers have blocked my ISP's subnet preventing me from joining online games?
I want to advise the black screen issue is still happening when trying to load a map during online play. Here's what i found out, i got my friend to create a VPN server as he has fiber connection and i connect to his router. If i do this i can load online maps 100% of the time but if i use my internet to try to load online games i get the black screen loading screen. I don't see how this is my issue as every other game works perfectly fine (Battlefield, APEX etc) so something is still broken with this part of the game.
I still get a black screen and the map does not load when i play online campaign, offline works perfectly fine. The clock on the bottom still counts so it hasn't froze so to speak. Sometimes it does load but that's about 2/10 times.
Other bug i have found is that my pre-order weapons will never stick, I always have go customize and select the golden weapons every time i load the game.
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 (8GB)
Acer XBH241H Gsync monitor
Hopefully that's enough info.
