Bandai Namco have announced two patches to hopefully iron out issues the game has been having with online matches.
The two major issues, an inability to match with other players in Ring Match and getting disconnected from the lobby, will be the focus for a patch at the end of February. Bandai Namco producer Tomoko Hiroki says, however, that one patch is unlikely to solve all the problems, so they are preparing another patch for March, as well.
“Rest assured,” states Hiroki, “that we will not stop until the fix has been completed.”
You can see Hiroki’s video talking about the patches below. She has, in the last few weeks, also signed up for the EVO Championships to play Dragon Ball FighterZ competitively.

To some extent, I kind of want them to take the entire online mode back to the workbench and rethink it from a fundamental level. I guess this is a good start, though.
