I'd like to report a pretty serious issue with the game. Despite telling me at the menu screen that I am connected to "Rock Central" the game won't stay that way. I have been trying for a couple days now, at various times of day, assuming it was some minor hiccup with the service that would be corrected. But now I see it seems to be a full time thing, at least for me (and possibly some other folks, if I'm reading the posts right). I am connecting to the internet with no problems on any device. I am connected to Xbox Live, again with no problems in any game. But then I get to Rock Band Blitz and the game says it is connected then apparently disconnects during the song, telling me at the end that I earned nothing for my efforts before kicking me back to the menu....frustrating to say the least!
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! Why is this happening? And why now, out of nowhere? Given that the game requires this connection for scoring purposes and cred earning, this has severely altered my game experience. I just bought this game and I already can't play it!
I would really like to see an answer to this issue from Harmonix. Please, please, please tell me what is going on here and how I can fix it because I really enjoy this game and want to get back to playing it normally. Sadly I feel like I wasted 15 bucks on a game that boots me to the menu, scoreless, after every attempt at playing it.
Sorry if something like this has been mentioned before... If I have a score that is in the top ten or around there, I like to keep an eye on it when I start the game to see if I've been pushed down or not. I think one of the "play this" tabs after the main menu should be the song with your highest leaderboard rank, or maybe even any songs in which you are in the top ten.
Even better would be if you could mark any song in your library as a favorite to display on that tabs menu. That would be awesome!! Anyone agree?
... Why isn't rock band world and all the challenges heavily integrated into the actual game!?!?! Like sure you want some presence I guess on facebook, and its nice to use rock band world when your not playing the game... but I dont want to have to keep going back and forth from my laptop to rock band blitz to start score wars and challenges. Also after you start a score war... you actually have to wait like 15 minutes for it to show up... like why? I really dont understand why there can't be another tab to have you choose challenges and start score wars. You can even add share buttons.
I mean I understand rock band is trying to get people on facebook to share that they are playing rock band so more and more people see rock band and then are like oh hey I remember rock band lets go play!
But really.... let me start my challenges from my xbox.. even if im forced to share them on facebook.. just make the whole challenge/score war thing make sense
not 15 minutes, you need to reconnect to the servers for it to show up. not just wait, just keep pressing b at the title screen till you're all the way back, then press A to reconnect
Being able to see the power-up load out on my highest scored run of a song would be cool.
I don't want to know badly enough to do something nutty like track it myself on a spreadsheet but it would be a nice thing to know and it would encourage replays using different load-outs.
What would also be useful is an on-screen timeline during gameplay that lets you know how close you are to the next checkpoint. That blue line with the rivals on it (on the right side on the screen) could have easily been replaced by this
