  1. Ran off a hotspot for 2 hours with no disconnect. Returned to Frontier and have had more disconnects. Weirdly, in the PZ just now, disconnected near end of long battle, and when I recovered I was in the OW and had earned 0 xp. Which was the point of the PZ. I would have had at least enough for 10 combat medals. I may to quit this game (sigh)
  2. Yes, the problem still exists, but it gets better and worse sporadically. Two days ago I had 2 disconnects in 5 hours of play. Yesterday I must have had 20 or more in the same amount of time. I will run another game session tomorrow off a borrowed hotspot to confirm that the disconnects only happen when playing through my Frontier ISP...if that is the case, is there a course of action you recommend? And if I have disconnects while on a non-Frontier hotspot, what would that tell us?
  3. yes, it has been happening for two weeks now, but with such irregularity. Some sessions I will hardly disconnect at all; others I will disconnect so frequently that I give up on playing. Within the same session, I may go as long as 30 minutes without a disconnect, and then get several within 10 minutes. Should I contact my ISP provider? Wipe and reinstall my game? Ask for a different router? I have had other disconnects that happen when I first enter battle, or first enter the open world. Those disconnects take longer to recover from. These new ones, thankfully, happen but then I reconnect and resume gameplay within 45 seconds - sometimes the other players do not even notice. It has actually been an interesting gameplay expereince - no enemy expects me to suddenly drop all sails and hit a speedbreak like that lol/
  4. Yes...after a full day yesterday of playing, with the disconnecting continuing randomly, I borrowed a friend's hotspot and the game did not disconnect for the full hour I ran the computer that way. My computer accesses the internet off a landline (Frontier), while the hotspot accessed the internet from a different provider - Verizon. What does that mean for resolving the problem? Thanks for your help!
  5. Disconnected 13 times in 2 hours - 10:35, 10:37, 10:49, 11:02....CST....you get the picture. If it was not for the rapid RECONNECTS, the game would be literally unplayable for me, after 3500 hour in game. I hope we can get this figured out...
  6. Played 90 minutes tonight, had 10 random, rapidly resolved disconnects. Makes the game almost unplayable now. Here are the first few reports: NAS 1404483 5.33 CST NAS 1404490 5:46 CST NAS 1404496 6:12 CST NAS 1404504 6:20 CST also it disconnected at 6.25, 6.32,6.45,6.57. 6/55 and 6.59 when I gave up. What other info would you need to help fix this?
  7. Just logged in and while in port disconnects began. NAS-1404021...my machine is in Dallas Tx area
  8. For the past week I have been having frequent, random disconnects, though teamspeak stays online, so the internet is not dropping. These disconnects happen under multiple conditions. I cannot force the disconnects by any particular action. I disconnect in open world sailing, in port, and in battle. When this happens, I can reconnect immediately and I reenter within a few seconds. I do lose the to-date battle summary (my hits etc are reset to zero) but I still get about the right amount of xp, and credit for ships I sank earlier in the fight. There have been a couple of days in this week where I did not disconnect at all. Then other days I can disconnect 4 or 5 times within 5 minutes. This is very annoying, though I can still play the game. I have a high-end video card, and my ping rate is stable at 100. Any suggestions? Last occurred last night around 11:30 CST.

  10. Welcome to the game! There IS an excellent players guide, with a link in the forums. Maybe someone has the link offhand, and can post it for our friend here? Also, you need to hook up with a clan, and get on your nation's Teamspeak. Many seasoned players, myself included, enjoy orienting new players and many clans specialize in equipping, resourcing, and training new players. It is so much easier when you can talk with someone. If you happen to be USA, look me up in game.
  11. I would submit that the change in exit timers ALL BY ITSELF would solve the griefing problem...and allow you to keep the screening fleets. I do not enjoy Port Battles. I enjoy screening fleet actions. It is a major source of my game enjoyment. Screenng fleets also represent training opportunities for noobs as they ascend in levels. Who welcomes noobs into Port Battles? Removing screening fleets, in favor of porting into PBs, will diminish the game for most of us A LOT....
  12. I suspect that there is a sweet spot with the snow where a reduction in its capabilities would make it enjoyable but not OP. Perhaps 5% reduction in speed? A tinkering with the sail profile? Seems to me the snow/stern camping is the single highest generator of complaints in the game atm.
  13. I have tried Loki around ten times. and only once was not in a position of sinking or being near sinking when I popped in. The Loki system needs some tweaking. It is frustrating for players who have a Loki take over the ai ship they are fighting, and it is pointless to use a Loki when all you get is horrid situations. Just saying.
  14. i believe you can get this on Amazon Prime. Good movie, actually.
  15. A new building? Can you give us a hint? Will the number of buildings we can have be increased? As for trading, the current mission structure works for me. Hauling items across the map does not.
