The only time Ive ever had server disconnects is when the server has crashed and kicked everyone off.
i.e. very rarely
How very nice for you. There are still quite a few people who are experiencing this issue. Now that the number of people logging in has gone down things have gotten much better. I still get the "server disconnect" message but now it just hangs there and eventually it sends me to wherever I was headed. It just takes me longer. Of course it has gotten me kicked out of a group or 2 as by the time I'm in the system they are normally working on the second objective.
Hey there just to inform all i have fixed the problem thanks for your thoughts and suggestions. It would seem all i needed to do was to change my proxy from none to eu and it seems to work now, yeahhhhhh off to frag some borg.
PS: the extra capacity was never put in. They said they were going to one weekend and never did. Stability has gotten better because a lot less people are logging in now.
Not true at all. We did two large orders of new hardware, and added all of that hardware to the shard at the end of open beta and during the first week after launch. We also made numerous performance improvements to the software.
i was getting disconected yesturday every 5 min in space combat for the first time ever but as soon as I started a ground based mission they stoped. And it was like a crash, straight to log in screen. kind of wierd actualy
