Confirmed. This morning and up to this point the server connection has been very unstable and jittery (live in Finland, Europe) and have gotten several disconnects. After the disconnect I seem to be unable to log back in for several minutes. Two of the disconnects happened when joining Khitomer Accord Space Elite, two others in sector space while DOFFing.
EDIT 13:42 GMT +2 Just got another while running KASE in my Excelsior.
My boyfriend and I we're bothing getting dc'd from around 1 am pst to 3:28 pst, we live in NV, USA. It also put us back in our Elite ground run, but then wouldn't accept my boyfriend back into party, kicked him outta run, and gave him a leave penalty. Very bad system if you ask me. Whatever is causing these crashes fix it soon please. Other people in DS9 we're also complaining about this problem if you send a dev or rep or w/e there you'll prob pick up some conversation about it.
me too the count went to 300secs and was still countin.
If your in the UK I recommend trying to connect via the US proxy (found under options in the launcher). This seems to work around a routing problem outside of Cryptics network. This tip was given to me by another player with Virginmedia as their ISP, so YMMV.
