Because I'm betting thats whats going on.
You darn right! Many, MANY game had this problem. Vanguard, ***, WoW and others. It takes weeks to find them because they never did the load testing to uncover them in the first place. I only wish it was a client-side memory leak. At least that way I could reboot and get back in the game. But when it is a server side issue (still may just be overload issues) then you have a whole other problem altogether.
