About a week ago, the abilitly to see other riders during 3-2-1 Go events vanished! I am assuming it has something to do with trying to maximize the bandwidth of the EA servers, but at what cost?! IMO, the game mode loses SERIOUS entertainment value not seeing the other riders! Hopefully, this is only a TEMPORARY issue. Does anyone have news with regards to this issue? I have searched high and low for news about it, but no one seems to be mentioning it. What gives?!!!

I have had the same problem. I even asked another rider if he could see me, but I did not get a response.

I realize that showing the other riders must take up an immense amount of bandwidth space, but I feel so alone boarding down the mountain now during 3-2-1 Go events! What was once the BEST thing to hit SSX, has now become a mere shadow of it's former self. :( Anyone else share these thoughts? I would hope the folks at EA are working on bringing other riders back, but sadly, I'm afraid 3-2-1 has seen it's best days come and go.

I have the same problem. No fun the 123 events anymore.
Did anyone ask @kingbitty on twitter?

i remember there was an issue if you used the Radio...you couldnt see other players in any event.

I never use Ridernet Radio, but when I play 3-2-1 I just see 1 other rider. Thats regardless of how many other riders in the heat.

I noticed the lack of other riders on 321s a few days ago and assumed it was my connection gone wrong/ its a shame - its killed some of the fun of 321s no doubt about that.
The thing is slowly fizzling though... players are dwindling and its hard to find much competition these days.
I would like to play Marcus's PSN-3-2-1 on Saturday nights but its just the wrong time for me I'm afraid.
I've been going back to Explore to reclaim a few records but as time goes on its getting much more difficult to beat my own times - let alone others. Oh well :shrug

I used to play alot of those public 321 events and since the last weekend I can't see others either. I pmed other rider asking if he had the radionet on and the answer was negative. But there was 1 time I was playing with other 3 guys and I could see just 1 of them, my guess is some problem with their servers.

I've even asked the folks at EA about it, but have not received an answer. :??? It's actually quite sad, because I think 3-2-1 was incredibly fun and truly breathing new life into SSX. I, too, have noticed fewer and fewer riders participating in 3-2-1 events and longer wait times in the lobby. Certainly, the "vanishing riders" has contributed to these recent changes. I mainly participate in trick events, but I can only imagine that riders competing in 3-2-1 RACE events are having an even tougher time with this recent change, as not being able to see your competition in relation to your own position must be quite challenging--and rather frustrating. Obviously, rider position in trick events is not as crucial, but not being able to see the other riders certainly downgrades the fun factor a tremendous amount! (not to mention, it was just pretty freakin cool to see other riders 'go at it' alongside you during drops!) Now, more than ever, organized 3-2-1 events might be the best option. If I were EA, I would be scrambling to fix this issue, but I suppose they already have my $60, and any newcommers to the game will be oblivious to the almost unbridled fun that the 3-2-1 Go events once offered. :|

The biggest problem for me with 3-2-1 these days is there is nobody playing! :( My favorite thing to do in SSX these days with what little I play is 3-2-1 trick and the last few times I have been on, there is either no 3-2-1 featured trick event, or the event has literally had "0" people in it. :( I commonly just jump off right away when this happens. Not to mention they really need to mix it up a bit with the featured tracks. It is always the same handful of tracks like JT2, Serenity, Big Show, etc.......Lots of other great tracks that would play really well for 3-2-1 and not sure why these dont get better rotation. :???

Like others have said - sometimes you can sit in the chopper for a long time waiting for other riders to line up - even when it says that a few are playing - they never show.
Along with the riders disappearing - quite often - the clock has too. So - I'm racing /tricking against invisible opponents, don't know my position... and I don't know how long I've got to finish either :??? :glare

I asked Todbatty on twitter. He told me the same. Turn off Ridernet Radio. I never used it.

I haven no problem in the chopper I see the racers there. The ranking during the rase is also wrong om screen.
Ik saw chromemaps yesterday and i thought i won but i did not.

Somtimes i go in a empty 123 race and wait read something an almost always there comes a racer.

I organised a 123race an s i did not see the other racers.

I am Japie54

I hope it's something temporary.

I'm still up for giving the 3-2-1 events this coming saturday a shot, even if I'll arrive a bit late.

Don't know if I see much value in playing competitions if I can't see other players. If that's the case, they might as well just remove
3-2-1 go events alltogether... As now a global event will give the same gameplay experience (practically), just without all the waiting.

I wonder if there is a way in the future to have both cpu and live players together, to give the illusion that you aren't by yourself.

Other rider ghosts are now erratic, at best. Sometimes you get 'em, sometimes you don't. Sometimes only one other visible despite multiple competitors. :shrug possible sign that some tweaking is still going on with the EA servers.

Just bought the game and am rather sad to see that I have missed out on all the fun in 3-2-1 events. A real shame, especially since this newest installment was a lot of fun.

Don't get me wrong though, it still is.

Welcome Largo! There is still lot's of fun to be had on 3-2-1 GO! events. Generally, if you check the "most popular" 3-2-1 event(s) theres usually a group competing. True, it's not as populated as it once was, but the 3-2-1 events have only been around since August of 2012--as they were added after the game was released last February.
