So, I have a problem and I have no idea where to even start with this, but rubber-banding is at least involved so I figure this is as good as any.
Ok, I can managed to log into my characters, but every time I do, when loading the first area, around 87 to 94% it will slow way down. Then when I finally get into the game I can't interact with anything. If I'm on a station I can't beam out. I can run around, but will eventually rubber-band back to where I started. I can open my inventory, but I can't effect anything in it. When I log into a character that's in space the ship can't move. I can enter my character's ship. If I plot a course it just slowly spins in a circle. I was playing earlier in the day and everything was fine. I was originally working on wireless, but was getting dropped from the server a lot so I logged out of the game, plugged in the Ethernet cable and disabled the wireless. I logged back into the game and I started having problems. I've restarted the computer, reset the router, even had it re-patch all the game files. Nothing has worked.
I tried filling out a bug report, but it doesn't populate anything for me to interact with. I tried requesting GM help in the game and when I hit the "submit" button nothing happens. It told me after a bit that I timed out due to inactivity.
There's some major disconnect somewhere and it seems to be server side because as you can see I shouldn't be having lag issues. I can see people flying around. I see things posted in chats. I'm notified when other people on my friend's list log on. I was notified of a friend request. It just didn't do anything. I have no idea how to fix this.
