It is a glitch but a different one. This glitch was allowing people to… it sounds crazy… shoot skills out of their weapons. So once they activated the glitch with a sticky bomb (there were some videos on YouTube about it) someone could shoot say traps out of their assault rifle and you would see 15 different traps on the ground. This glitch actually makes sense for it overloading the server if you can imagine how some likely wanted to see how many they could put in an area, but it was supposedly patched last night.
I was in the LZ and experienced the same kind of lag that you did in the DZ.
Actually, this is likely the same thing that I was experiencing - https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/111310/does-the-glitch-really-kill-the-server?lang=en-US
(...) I got an extremely delayed notification that I cleared a control point about 2 minutes after I cleared it and then delta’d. (...) When this happens for 3 or so minutes I shoot enemies, but no damage and they just stand there. (...)
That's all rather typical for a connectivity issues. So if you're lucky your internet provider just had a "bad day" and you might be back to normal by now. Or check internet connection and/or multiplayer functionality via your router's UI or the Xbox' settings. And yes, as stupid as it does sound – sometimes restarting the router or the Xbox can solve such problems.
I really appreciate the support but if it was typical connection issues or my provider, etc., I wouldn’t have made the post. I have experienced the typical connection issues in plenty of games before. This was different and perhaps my description did not differentiate what was going on well enough. I’m hoping the maintenance has fixed it. But again, I appreciate the support.
Maybe the servers are overloaded by too many people using the shoot skills from your gun glitch in the DZ glitch, but this game is getting extremely unresponsive at times, unlike I have ever seen on console. A short time ago it happened, I got an extremely delayed notification that I cleared a control point about 2 minutes after I cleared it and then delta’d. Came back and the control was now “white flag’d” or not cleared the defend stage.
When this happens for 3 or so minutes I shoot enemies, but no damage and they just stand there. Every so often I can do damage again then it’s gone shortly after that.
So if the planned maintenance is not supposed to fix this please fix it soon. It’s making the game not playable in the open world bc you can lose all of your progress.
