ps4 why does it take so long to join a game

So I have been trying to play this game all evening. I am located on the EST time zone and I am playing on PS4. My PSN name is Packhead_Zay971. I keep getting some dumb error code saying that “connection to the host failed”. I have a feeling that TRS does not want people to play. We have been playing for two hours and have only played two games not to mention these times the server gave up and gave us bots. WTF!!! This is really annoying as I love playing this game. Please fix this ranking system as players are going to start dropping soon. Please help as I love this game but these bugs are going to have back on GTA 5; at least their servers work correctly. I know this is something that your working on but come on guys BUG after BUG after BUG. You might well invest in an ant hill. Plus now you have a penalty for leaving the game but most of time we leave the game it is before your servers crashed. Your fault your server should get a penalty. Is it a certain time that I need to play this game or what? The only game mode that seems to work is evacuation (No one fun plays that anymore) Developers please explain why this is happening

@Shaners you should look into this ant hill thing, and potentially address it next Tuesday evening.
