The game has always been jank as all hell when it came to multiplayer. Before odyssey, it was functional. Now, you can't go 20 minutes traveling with a friend without unsyncing and spending 5 to 10 minutes trying to resync.When is Instancing and networking getting fixed?
There is still issues when in squads on open where no one or some would instance and others not?
Open is not "Open" if it is selective on what is displayed.
Then it might as well be something else entirely.
Might as well pull that "Multiplayer" sticker off your product.
If I had to guess (since I don't know what the netcode is) Frontier probably destroyed multiplayer when they separated odyssey from horizons.
