This started happening to me about a month ago after two years of it not happening at all--in fact, I can't get to the server right now. Usually there's a logjam inside Cogent Networks which slows everything down, but this morning it's clean from here to there. I can trace to the server but it's just not responding.
"Frustration level increasing exponentially, Captain. It will be off the scale in three, two, o--"
You can thank the horrible internet companies here in the good ol' USA seeing how its infrastructure is soooo out of date and held up by big businesses providing poor quality service for over inflated prices.
seriously what in blazes is going on!? at this very moment i'm getting such serve spikes that my ship appears to be not moving at all at full impulse for over 20 minutes!!
I can see everybody else moving but i can't even turn my ship!
If this keep happening for the next ten days, they need to push forward the new season release date to November.
If they don't its going to be chaos
Now, the funny thing is... ...even if they magically improve the US internet-infrastructure, we'll still see a few days of utter chaos when the new season arrives.
I feel with You though. The only thing worse than bad internet, is no internet.
Strangely enough my connection here in Denmark is pretty ok, rarely any rubberbanding, and few disconnects. -Some... ....but not hair-rippingly bad.
