I Want To Make Sure My Understanding Of A Freeze Off Is Correct

SDS

So, was up 6-1 in the sixth inning of a ranked game last night and the game froze up. There was no “game server closed” message, and no record of the game logged on my universal profile game log.

It was pretty late so I figured I’d turn my monitor off and let the game sit over night. I wake up this morning and I am still on the same frozen screen, still no game log recorded, nothing.

I have things to do today anyways so I’m gonna continue to leave the game in its’ frozen state. Is my opponent doing the exact same thing right now? When one of us does finally turn the ps4 off will we be the one that is ticketed with the loss?

Just want to make sure my understanding of the “freeze-off” process is correct? Thanks guys.

Your understanding is correct. Also, BS move by him to not turn off his PS4. Down 6-1 you should give the other guy the W IMO

Yeah, I’ve been playing my original NES a lot more lately and can stream Netflix or whatever on my Roku so hopefully he’s prepared to not use his ps4 for a long long time. I’m a hard headed Slovak and now I’ve decided to see this one out until the end.

Just worries me a bit that I could fry my PlayStation but I’m sure hardcore gamers have left theirs on for days at a time so I’m probably ok.

I e left mine of for days on accident. You’ll be fine. Good luck!!!!

Just got back to the house and we’re still frozen. Working on about 19 hours now... I guess I’ll be firing up some Super Mario 3 for the NES tonight.. 😂

I haven't turned my PS4 off since I bought it on release day, except for a move, and updates. You'll be just fine.

Stay strong, don't give in, the show 21 isn't that far out anyway.

Just watch out for Server Maintenance. If they end up doing maintenance while your still in the freeze off you'll both lose connection and a few things can happen:

  1. The game never counts.
  2. One of you randomly get the loss.

I know that you're winning and the team losing, unless they have a chance at coming back, should quit; but it's been going on for longer tgan a few hours. Imagine how many more points you could've gained, even if you quit out while winning.

Oh I won’t be giving in. I’ve got plenty of other things to do. I’ve got an NES library of about 140 games which I never play because The Show takes up all my free gaming time.

Just put my hand on the PS4... she’s holding up just fine. Not even warm.

Oh it’s not about the Ranked Seasons points, or my record, it’s just principle now.

I just think it’s hilarious that I found the one dude that’s as hard headed as I am, and then I manage to get into my first freeze off in over a year.. lol.

Wouldn't the timer run down and you can forfeit your opponent? I'm missing something here...

SDS

Are you playing quashtag?

Unfortunately no. We are just in a frozen game state in the top of the sixth inning. He’s down 6-1 and refuses to take the loss.

Lol. No. Is he notorious for having epically long freeze offs?

SDS

Assuming your game didn't crash in place, you're fine. I had a PS4 crash without the blue screen when I went to the store and it bricked the system

This would be most epic. Finally gives up mid July to find out it wasn't a freeze off after all, his TV was just stuck.

Here’s the screenshot of what I’m looking at.. and the little yellow ring around the analog stick button is still flashing... so I’m pretty sure that’s a good sign.

Super Mario 3 is legit one of the greatest video games ever. This is time well spent

Agree!!! I force myself to play it the long way without the whistles when I do sit down and give it a go... much more satisfying.

I grew up on the NES and then sold off all my games and the console in the late 90’s.

About a year and a half ago I started rebuilding a library of games (mostly as a collector but sometimes I play them as well)... I’ve got just over 140 titles now. I do well searching eBay and Mercari for game lots.. garage/yard sales are good too and they should be starting back up here soon.

It’s insane what some of the carts go for in sealed mint condition. Wish I would have known these things when I was a child.. I wouldn’t have to work anymore.. 😂

Last year he basically did what your opponent is currently doing, trying to wait his opponent out for over 24 hours despite being down in the game. He was also a Sony partner so it looked extra bad on his part
