Starblood Arena was one of the first games I purchased when I got PSVR a little over a month ago. Since then, I have only been able to actually play the game 3 times. About once every other day, I try to get on and play, but always receive the Network Error message.
It would be one thing if I could actually play the single player portion of the game, even though this is clearly built to be a multiplayer game. However, I can't even do that. I didn't pay hard earned money to simply play a tutorial. The customization section is essentially useless since I can't earn any customizations without being able to play.
I could understand if something caused an error to persist for a couple days, hell, even a week Would probably be just fine, but to have this issue for more than a month is ridiculous. I am able to play every other game that I own, I have a PS Plus subscription, my network is in perfect running condition with a strong connection of 121 download and 23 upload. So this is clearly not an issue that is being caused on my end.
If the development team can't get the game to be playable, then I would like a refund of the purchase price. Funtional multiplayer is something that every other developer seems to be able to incorporate into their games, so I'm not sure why Starblood Arena is unable to make it work. At the very least make the single player portion of the game accessible offline so that customers get SOMETHING for their money. To charge people for a tutorial is wrong.
I have been having the same issue. I have not been able to play the game since I bought it.
I am now up to 3 days in a row of getting the network error. It seems like a really bad design decision to require a connection to a remote server even for single-player games. I would hope that whatever info they need to get from or send to the remote system could be cached locally until such time that the remote server could be reached, and not completely block all access to the game because the remote server is unavailable. What is going to happen if/when the company that runs the server goes out of business or otherwise decides it is not worth it to run the server anymore? At that point, the game will be completely and perrmanently unusable. If I had paid for this game, I would be pissed. Fortunately, I got it as a PS+ freebee back in January, so I don't have as much to complain about. Still, it is very annoying.
I just tried the game again after a couple of weeks, it worked fine for me until now! I'm just curious why the developers still did not respond to this I would like to have an answer for this.
im having the same issue as the people above, if this game could remove its connection issues and secure that in stone this game would be one of the top played games on vr, this is based on the tutorial, plus it needs to be cross platform as well to maximize cash flow
