Combat is the Cause of Connection Issues

I’ve recently reinstalled the game to try out the new content, but sadly I noticed that most big fights will cause the game to disconnect making the game unplayable for people who like getting into fights.
I play on XB1 so it’s likely nothing to do with graphics settings unless the devs added a script or something to combat in the newest update, and game works perfect if I play passively for as long as I want.
The problem always, ALWAYS occurs when NPCs are fighting nearby especially in groups of 4/5 plus.
If any devs read this please focus your attention on the combat because I promise you that is the issue everybody is having whether they know it or not - for instance in one scenario I got a DC which I assumed was random but after logging back in I checked around and noticed my thrall had died among about 11 enemies, and whenever I am in combat with several enemies at once the game is 90% likely to crash.
Maybe check out the spawn count too because I have seen a single Croc multiply into 4 on spawn so maybe the game cannot handle that much at one time.
That’s my 2 cents, I’d appreciate an acknowledgement because I’m not picking this game up again until I know the problem will be looked into.

Welcome to the forum. The disconnection issues have a joker face. Me for example i disconnect almost every time outside scittering cavern on 3011. Then on 3023 no matter how over builded this server was i had zero lags and disconnections no matter if i played the whole map.
The first complains for disconnections was about world bosses fights, however i never endured the same.
Nobody says lies, everyone reports his-her observations, whats crazy is that we do not suffer disconnections for the same reasons so it’s difficult for devs to locate this issue :confused:.
I hope they 'll locate it and fix it, welcome to the forum exile and thank you for reporting your experience :+1:t6:


Its already been acknowledged and fixed, the fix will come in the next update:


Thank you Dennis and team, looking forward for the patch!

Most of my connection lost problems appear to be during login to the server and loading in general.
It happens about 3-4 times before I manage to enter the server, then it happens randomly from time to time.


Yup - sand reapers are the worst for this. Any time I get more than one in combat, as soon as they spit I get kicked. I am running a series x with 1000/1000 ethernet internet. It’s the friggin game. I can reliably duplicate this bug. It has cost me my server pop on 2 servers that I run.


Happy Cake Day.
