same here make it to select my character then it starts loading and every time at exactly 41 % the loading of the map stops and i am informed that the connection to the server was lost, 20 attempts so far. It always amazes me how the run patches that cause more problems than they fix, stupidity all around!!!
As much as I know you don't want to hear this, but the reality is threads mean nothing to them. The forum is a community effort... to any extent unless the ******** on the forum is substantial enough (as it was with the network issue the past couple days), then the majority of the content here is really just ourselves ******** to one another... not to any particular purpose or eventual resolution.
So ... the closing of a thread really has no real tie to whether or not its believed resolved for everyone or not. It really is just simply closing it because either the issue has gone too far and its become a flame war... or its not producing any more helpful information and is even possibly making it worse... but rarely does it truly have to do with the resolution of the problem itself.
No you are absolutely correct, but i would point out that specific thread i'm referring to was closed with a comment stating the servers were up and suggesting that the issue was resolved.
I'm just not sure i understand why you do that unless you are 100% certain the issue has been resolved... it's just compounding frustrations.
They should get some help from other online games to help them code the servers.... or better yet pay for better servers in general. I can't even select my character without the game crashing. The ones in charge clearly don't pay attention to this or they would have fixed the server problem months ago.
