No Current Solution For MGO Problems

If you've experienced major issues with Metal Gear Online recently, you're not the only one. And worse, it seems a solution to the problem is nowhere in sight.

According to CVG, Konami has certainly acknowledged the string of issues that have plagued MGO ever since the new expansion went live on July 17, but they also say they don't know what to do about it. Reported problems have ranged from log-in failures to the on-and-off status of the community support page and MGO reward shop, and most users are pretty unhappy about the current situation. Even worse, it seems that some payments made through the site haven't gone through properly, and Konami has had to refund lost money to some accounts. And here's the official response to all this:

"We have been taking numerous corrective measures since the problems initially started, but unfortunately there are no permanent solutions we can announce at this present moment."

Well, at least that "at this present moment" will give avid MGO players some hope. We do expect Konami to fix this mess at some point, and we'll keep you updated on their progress. In the meantime, you may have to play something else until the widespread server issues have been fully repaired.

Well, the game itself seems to have little problems, so there's no need to go away from it yet.
It's mainly the store and reward store that's the problem.

Konami really needs to get better at handling heavy server demand. I can't believe they didn't learn from the beta problems. Wasn't that the point of the beta?

yeah it's so messed up that i didn't even understand what the hell was going on when i logged on 2 days ago. the good thing, at least for me and hopefully for you guys as well, is that the old system is working well and it still clocks in the time i've put it. I'm getting closer to the MGO psxextreme clan.

Yeah the reward shop is still down. Was playing earlier and everything was going smooth. I did however experience a lot of lag two days before. btw, GTA online is getting pretty buggy as of late...

We were all noobs at some point man.
Practice is the key. Start slow and build up into tougher battles.

This is freaking lame because i can't remember which Konami ID goes to which Gamer ID i have (Me and my brother both have 2) so i have no idea whish account to buy the expansion on. Konami are idiots for not just putting the expansion on the PSN like every other dev!

The problem I had - but i had since before the update - is that you shoot someone and only 3-5 seconds later they actually take the shot...arrghhh...i shoot someone in the head and they live for long enough to kill me...
anybody else experience that?

i experience the laggy headshot all the time. Does anyone know if the MGO servers are dedicated or not? They need to get better hit detection because after i kill i gut with a headshot, i shouldn't have to worry about him killing me.

Why Konami did not use the PSN and PSS? They trying to make their own store and it's just messed up

Sony did the same with Singstar. What's the point of having a Playstation Store if so many games don't use it?
I hope Konami switch to the PS Store in a later update.
