Does anyone get errors and kicked on COD Ghost when they try to play on PS4?   A lot of people are having problems now with the new Patch and haven't been able to get on and play a whole match.     I can start COD Ghost and then after about 2 mins then it kicks out of anything that I started?

I have played a few games and the game play seems smoother then before. It took a couple of minutes for the ps4 update and about 10 minutes for the ghosts update.

I saw a tweet from Activision a couple of hours ago that said the issues had been fixed. Anyone still having issues? I played for about 4 hours last night and only had a couple of hiccups (rubber banding) but no issues like described here.
