I only seem to get this problem when I try to join servers that are nearly full, or when attempting to join via match make. If I pick servers with more than 4 slots free, I never seem to have a problem. Try this instead, as I think you get the connection problem when the slot you are trying to take gets filled by another person connecting at about the same time... I may be wrong though...
I use much the same approach and I don't have many problems.
I usually go for 13/16 or less

ok, so further to my post a few days back, i've tried to play Starhawk again yesterday and today.
Yesterday I tried between around 8 and half 9, and tried about 6 different times, trying CTF, TDM, large servers, small servers, near empty servers etc. For each one, it shows loading, then the splash screen of the level, and then "failed to connect". Cue lengthly cutscene...
Today I tried another 5 times starting at half 6, again selecting servers in every way possible, and no luck.
Has there been/could there be any feedback as to what the reason is for this, and if it will be fixed...
So far then i've got into one game out of about 20 attempts.
I'm wired in to a Netgear router, in DMZ.

Yeah lots of "Failed to connect" messages for me today. As others have mentioned, once you're in a game it doesn't mess up but it can take 4/5 attempts to get on first time.

I seem to get booted out of the system alot with network failures and quick match boots. On the home screen the cursor is way to sensitive and goes all over the place and on the "rank" list it does not show anything other than the top players since triangle does not pull up personal rank as instructed

Brief Description of the issue:
- When I attempt to join a game through matchmaking 75% of the time it just follows with a constant black screen that says loading at the bottom. I have not been patient enough to wait it out to see how long it takes before even at least joining a game, but one time I had waited for about 12mins and still it was present with the black screen.
- Almost every time ever since I've started playing the Beta. I will say the chances of me getting into a game straight away through matchmaking is about 20%.
Steps to reproduce the error:
- Matchmaking in Starhawk.

Edit: I should add as I typed this message I am currently waiting on another black screen. It's been about 6mins.

About 80% of the time at the moment, this is the connecting procedure for me:
- Start game up, select Matchmaker
- About 2 seconds into loading, "Failed to Connect" message comes up
- Back to main menu, select Matchmaker again
- Stuck on loading screen indefinately, so I quit game altogether
- Start up again
Normally I manage to get onto a game after all of this. Like I said, once you're on there it's fine though.
