So many people complain that they are getting DC'ed from eve all day. I am one of them. The reason this is effecting EvE and not other MMO's such as wow or CoH or *fill in name of online game/mmo here* is due to the fact that all these games run off localized servers with people slit up. go look at a wow server list for US or Europe and you will see about 100-200 servers to play on. most based upon what region u play in. Eve is 1 server for the whole world of eve players. I am American but I am currently living in Turkey and I still play with people back in the US, Aus, EU you name it. I am connected to them all. With a bad turn of events the internet (Verizon and Sprint) are currently taking a dump right now. If you happen to look at that internet health website and look at the stats for Sprint or Verizon in the San Fransisco area you will see that they were down to 85% how big of a hub is San Fran for the rest of us? who knows but in one way or another it effects us all. so just calm down. take a break from eve go read a book go for a walk but please stop ur whining.

I hear ya, Turbo, but my problem isn't so much that I can't play the game at this point - I've given up on that 'til the issue's resolved. My problem now is that the fix to this problem (which, if I may spin your words a bit, could easily be solved by having more than one server) is so long in coming, which is both disheartening and, from the view of many online gamers, unnecessary. Other games get mentioned because other games don't have problems this severe for this long.

To the uninformed, the question becomes, "If these other games don't have this problem, why does EVE?" And from there, the speculation spirals, sometimes out of control.

So yeah, some people can be impatient and don't understand all the intricacies and nuances when working with tech. However, that doesn't make their concerns invalid, and it doesn't make all of them 'idiots'.

This post is hilarious.... especially since the poster is talking about stuff which he has no clue about .. the "sprint" "verizon" thing had NOTHING to do with the problem.



Now who looks like an idiot

except for the fact that there will never be more then one server for eve. And you know what? More then likly 99% of the eve population likes it that way. i sure as hell do, it's one of the reason that i have been in eve for 4 years, and makes me keep giving ccp my money. The lag and crashes will fix, but if they split the server then that will prolly be the end of eve

There, I've removed the most important part of the post for ease of viewing. Now maybe people will hear what the TC is saying and not get hung up on how he's saying it.

so is aus. irrespective of the intricacies of this problem, i pay to play this game, and expect a certain level of quality. this issue first reared its head for me almost 24 hours ago.

now, if its a server issue, by all means shut down the server and get it fixed. if its a connection issue with whoever connects CCP to the internet, i expect CCP to be on the phone pronto and fixing it. now, this is a world wide issue. since the rest of the internet isn't broken, its reasonable for us to assume CCP can fix this issue somehow.

/me has been connected for 2hrs with no problems - [in europe] but if it is somewhere else i.e. Atlantic connection then that may be why lots of US | aus people are having problems and ccp may not be able to fix them because it is not in their domain

Most likely, Limelight did some DNS reshuffling, and the effected ISP's just haven't renewed their DNS's properly yet. Rather like the Comcast SNAFU of the late 1990's

check you are not going thru any server with llwnet or something similar, I belive these are all the limelight servers, which are causing the disconnects.
I checked last night and my route no longer went thru them and it used to, so things should be back on track now.
