    Question yet another multiplayer kickout

    Hello, I've noticed that I get kicked from online lobbies quite alot. This always happens when I join a lobby and at least one of the other players is "muted" (crossed out speaker symbol - I did not mute him, the symbol is there right from the start). Sometimes I can get on the track and drive anyway - but get kicked after a few seconds. And - I can join other Lobbies with no speaker symbol next to other drivers and play without problems. When a player joins and the speaker symbol appears right next to his name, I get kicked. Why do I have problems with certain other players in the lobby? I can't really enjoy this game right now :-(

    I have no issues playing other games online, my PS4 pro is wired to the router using a vdsl 50 mbit connection (psn test says 40mbit down - 5mbit up, NAT 2)

    Yep same here on the One X.
    I thought I'd done something wrong but I've just exited the pits and then kicked many times for no reason too.
    I tried rejoining about 6 times for the hell of it but kicked each time, so I wondered if in that case they really didn't want anyone ?

    Not even getting onto the track !
    I'll take note next time whether it's 'kicked' or 'disconnected' (I've certainly not done anything to warrant that, and my connection is extremely quick).

    I have the same problem. Continuously disconnected. I have Complete fibre hookup, with exceptional up and down load speeds.

    Im confident this is a PJC2/ Sony Server issue..

    What is your NAT Type connection? Most default nat type for PS4 is to go to NAT Type 2 which is the most restrictive. Since this game uses P2P connections it is not a server side issue so not it's not on pCars2 or Sony side. It is suggested due to the large packet transfer sizes during multiplayer and that you must maintain that connection to ALL separate drivers entering the lobby, you should change your NAT type to open or Type 1. Also use a wired connection if at all possible.

    I've had over 200 multiplayer races with no disconnects on ps4 and now have switched to PC and have racked up another 50ish races I'd guess and again, no disconnects.


    NAT Type is displayed when you do an internet connection test. To change NAT Type, refer to your router's manual.

    Are those of you that are getting disconnections using a PS4 Pro?

    I have a pro and was normally getting one or two disconnections at the start of an online session, then at the start of last week it started disconnecting me continually - I could only be in an online room for a minute or two at a time before I got disconnected (costing me a league race entry). After about 3 days of trying repeatedly and checking wired as well as wireless and monitoring my network to make sure it wasn't dropping anything it finally occurred to me to test on my old (non-pro) PS4 and that has worked perfectly in many sessions since - I haven't been disconnected once.

    I'm really hoping that patch 4 improves the stability of the connection so that I can go back to using my PS4 Pro..
