Woe, woe is me (connection problem)
 
So, i ran tracert......three times in fact, just to be sure and got results all like the following.

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.0.1

Trace complete.

As you can see, hops 8 and 9 run into some sort of issue.

I've been suffering terrible disconnects recently, far more than usual. And it's definitely on the borderline from irritating to seriously problematic.

What advice can anyone give me to either avoid or otherwise work round steps 8 and 9. The connection is so poor I don't even know where they are.

try using the us proxy. on the desktop launcher in the upper right hand corner is a link for options. there will be a drop down bar under proxy with the options none, us and EU. choose the us proxy and click okay.

Thank you, tried as you suggested and have had no disconnects on map transitions since. Launcher is a little clunky, occasionally not connecting proeprly, but it just needs a second or third try and its fine.

Thank you for your help.
