Creating a new local account is not a great fix though. Like Jaydoh, I can probably play a couple of games before I have to restart my PS4 before I can get a connection again. And we do lose all progress that we’ve accumulated in the past, which is a bummer…
Now I did try what Jaydoh did, and connect through my data tethered from my phone, and like Jaydoh, I was able to login to the main page. But wouldn’t that and our semi-fix (because we are disconnected shortly after) with a second local/ps4 account further reinforce the theory of our IP block being banned or disconnected from overwatch servers?
As for the other players that are connecting with the same ISP, are they connecting fine in British Columbia specifically, or is it throughout Canada? From what I understood speaking with the Tech, our connection compared to Ontario (for example) cannot be compared because it’s completely different connections of sorts. That’s why I was wondering if our IP blocks were the same, hence possibly connecting this in an other way than just living in the same province.
Since the start of the issue I was recommended to switch routers and modems, which I have done. It did not fix the problem, so the ISP Tech and I did a hard reset on modem and router, updated and removed the firewall for testing. I even initialized the playstation and reinstalled the game just to see if it could have been a setting on the playstation I accidentally changed. No dice
