【Issue with Network Play】
We have confirmed several issues with network connection errors, disconnections, difficulty matching, and long connection wait times in online lobbies and player matches. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
The development team is currently looking into several solutions for these problems. Although such fixes will be implemented gradually, we expect to provide improvements in future updates to reduce the frequency of these errors.
