Since buying Vermintide 2 on Xbox a couple of months back along with some friends, most of the time we are not able to join games online or have anyone be able to join our games. Friends or randoms. Either I or someone else has the issue where it says that it is joining a game (even sometimes shows a star for the host on next empty player slot to indicate someone is joining) but after sometime its a connection timeout. I have had it where after 40 minutes of back and forth trying to join a friends game and them join mine and it finally worked, other times an hour and still no luck. Sometimes i load up the game and have no issues, most of the time i do. One time me and a friend have been able to play online together and with randoms for at least a week without issues but back to one day its fine the next its not. Ran out of patience mostly now so if it works it works and if not i will play another game.
Sometimes its working for 2 of us and not for the 3rd.
Ive searched quite a few times online for this issue and seen advice of generalised restarts, check NAT type is open, unplug your xbox for 6 hours and all sorts which i have tried from time to time but since the game released 2018 the issue has been raised but it doesnt seem this has ever been fixed. It probably randomly eventually worked for them the same as it does for me so they never chased the issue? Its only this game i have this issue with. Except for left 4 dead 2 over the years from time to time. And again same with that game it was just the case of one day it works the next maybe not.
Do the servers regularly go down for xbox? Is it us? Why does it work sometimes and sometimes not? Why so regular?
Its a bit frustrating because I like the game, I’ve bought all of the dlc and i can barely play online with real players

I know when its working for me because it shows Aquiring game profiles quickly after searching before loading into the game.
