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.
Since sometime last week I'm getting frequent random disconnects, maybe as often as every 10 or so minutes, sometimes faster, sometimes slower. This occurs in open world, battles, port, etc. Ping is stable around 100, then when the issue occurs it spikes to the thousands and kicks me to the sever selection screen. I can get back in after waiting 5-10 seconds for it to resolve and log back in. This is a new issue I haven't experienced before in the two months I've been playing prior. It just now happened right as I was hitting X to loot a ship, then when I got back in I was in OW and so much for that battle which took 20 minutes (and I disconnected once while in it). I've disabled any anti-virus, firewall, etc, have pretty idle network traffic otherwise too. I've verified local files through steam as some clan member suggested but that didn't help any. Just ran a connection test: NAS-1403897 Thanks in advance! UPDATE: I found the ip for the peace server, and ran a continual ping (ala "ping 22.214.171.124 -t") while playing just now. Pings were consistently in the ~110ms area with no loss, then after 10 or so minutes they timed out, after 5 or so timeouts in a row I got disconnected, saw another 5 before the pings resolved again and then was able to get back in. UPDATE 2: Did some research and tried something (posting this in case it may help others). I connected both ethernet ports on my PC to the router, and used Speedify app to bond the two connections. I see that sometimes there is a massive lag spike on one port, but the packets then goes over the other one. In light of this balancing, I have now successfully been logged on for 4.5 hours without any disconnects. Thus, I think one can draw a conclusion that potentially this is ISP/Router/NIC based problem reaching the server.
Nobody likes seeing a ship just sitting where it started, doing nothing, not even the enemy, who has to beat upwind to kill it. Why not turn command of logged out, afk players over to NPC's until they log back on? In addition, this might work, let the sunken captains take over logged out ships, after they sink their own ships. There is a chance they are better than an NPC.
