    So I've made a few alts because wanted to tried more powers and was getting bored with my main, but these few days have been frustrating, I'm afraid to do any booster exploration, any exploration or normal story gameplay because I end up linkdead. I play and out of nowhere the game closes,South Gotham, Metro dome and others can't remember right know. Are other people experiencing the same thing?

    There is one outside by the hive base outside area in metro and you prolly know the other by Gotham sub avatar area/ bottled duos area.

    This is something we are actively investigating. Any further details may be useful.

    When you teleport from the watchtower directly to the bottle area in Gotham, you can end up in one of these zones.
    Every time this happens to me I use the PS4 thing that will upload video after a crash. Don't you look at those reports?

    Metrodome in pve phase and surrounding area is a link dead zone.

    It is quite a big area, i was on Soul Alchemy 1st time it happened so thought I was being clever by giving the area a wide berth....still got me (metrodome)

    OK now I'm stuck there because whenever I log back after LINKDEAD goes away I immediately crash again - doesn't give me time to warp - my main toon as well :(

    As a hero, go to the Metrodome and try to collect the side missions. You'll go linkdead before you can reach them.

    Just got a character stuck in a dead zone for the last 10 mins. EUPC, Little Bohemia, Metropolis General Hospital. Was doing the leveling up missions just about to go into the Brother Blood mission, now I can't get out of the place at all! I don't even get a disconnected game screen error like I would if I normally crash, my game just shuts down instantly.

    It is a large area. Mostly in the bottles. After seeing more threads and posts...I experimented a bit. It would seem that DC has its own 'Bermuda Triangle', as the areas that disconnect you are most concentrated within a roughly triangular area between these three points: the little square building next to the diamond heist villain van, the enemy- surrounded buildings next to the western most gazebo on the south border of the lower island, and the Gotham riverfront walk in portal. There are other dead pockets near and around them and throughout the entirety of the bottled area but you can forget about farming the astral gear and deconstruction missions. Just don't bother you'll disconnect. I watched a couple of players go past me into the dead triangle and just stop, with disconnected indicator on their tag.
    ALSO: there IS a way out. I found that if you keep attempting to log in, you get chances to move a bit; 2 to 4 seconds before disconnect. Not much, but you can inch your way out of a dead zone given enough attempts.

    I will continue experimenting...I will also post a map of dead zones, and record a few videos of exact places. Stay tuned...

    Last night I tried the Metrodome deadzone again with both of my characters that had previously kept crashing. Both were able to get to the side quest givers and successfully complete the missions in the area without an incident.

    I also took another character of the same level there to test and he didn't crash either. So, either this area was fixed (I did see a character in the area named "Test" Something) or the problem resolved itself (for me at least).

    So I've had this problem since episode 22(? newest one) dropped metrodome area everyday between 11 am (Pacific) to about 8 pm. Around 4 pm to 6 pm ish it's instantaneous, I'm flying then bam I'm staring at my desktop going "Right forgot to fly around". Before 4pm and after 6pm it's just lag spikes and eventually I see my desktop.

    South Gotham has been a problem since I started playing. If I look up instead of forward or down while flying/gliding I tend to not disconnect. I think it's all the bottle graphics.
