Lately lots of gamers attacking unifi and TM, saying that they blocked the access to their favourite online games.
It started with Rockstar, ubisoft and now NAT type for PS4.
It caused a lot of ruckus and fake news, however unifi and TM already made a statement that they are not blocking any game servers.
So, what's with NAT Type = Failed in PS4, mostly?
Well, it might be something to do with your servers itself. We recommend that you reach out to the server provider directly to check if your login ID has been compromised or if there are any configuration steps that you might need to check.
The error should look like this; (picture courtesy of @Irzadzul27 , add him on PSN)

For quick fix, you can follow this steps by one of our members here, @Frechette
"I'd recommend trying to change you DNS to Google DNS (220.127.116.11/18.104.22.168).
You can do this by following these steps:
Let me know how you get on."
And yes, some said it works for them.
Why dont you try it first and share with us your result.

Hi everyone, recently we’ve received feedback that some unifi users, who are avid gamers, have had some problems accessing their favourite video game servers such as EA, Ubisoft and the PlayStation Network. Understandably, this has caused some frustration. We get it and we feel your frustration. After all, we’re gamers too.
And understandably, there has been some confusion on why these problems occurred. Difficulty accessing gaming servers is not a problem for unifi users only. We’ve checked. Gamers on other networks in Malaysia and around the world are going through the same thing.
There are a number of scenarios that may affect access to game servers. They include multiple logins and wrong login attempts. This has nothing to do with the unifi network itself. Please give us a moment to clarify some misconceptions.
