Game mode: Online Official
Type of issue: Misc/Server
Server type: PvP
Yesterday I was logged into the server and noticed a massive increase in latency and action delays (for example, I had to click 3-4 times before a building piece would place). It got worse over the course of roughly 15 minutes, then all interactions stopped. My player could still move around, but no doors would open, boxes, etc.
I disconnected from the game to restart it, and ever since then I get either the message “Lost Connection to Server” or (rarely) “Outgoing Buffer Overflow”. These pop up after5-7 minutes on the loading screen.
I’ve managed to get into the server 2 times, but my character is frozen in place and after a minute or so I lose the connection.
I’ve reinstalled and verified the local files already. The server only populates in the list about 30% of the time.
May not be relevant, but in the last two weeks a few large groups have joined and spammed foundations and vaults everywhere on the map. I’ve seen a steady performance hit running around from that. Nothing else out of the ordinary recently.
I’ve checked and I’m able to successfully join Asia #1344, #1342, #1343, 1336 (just the ones I happened to click).
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Attempt to log onto Asia #1345
- If the server populates in the list (it usually doesn’t) then try to join it
- After several minutes in the loading screen, I’m returned to the main menu with the pop-up “Lost Connection with Server” then “Failed to join requested game”
