Anyone else having lag and disconnection problems in the last couple of days? In some battles, lag comes and goes in a stop-start-stop-start fashion. In four or five others over today and yesterday, the connection has just dropped at some point during the battle, costing my team the game on at least one occasion.
The rest of my internet is fine while this happens. There was also a period last night when I got disconnected that I couldn't log back on or access the website for about 5 minutes, even though other websites were still working.
Any ideas?

EU servers are laging like crazy over last month or so. Compared to Ru which is just fine regardless that my ping to RU site is double the ping to EU website.

Yes, my ping is jumping up to 40 more than I usually have. Started like a week ago.

I confirm that for the EU-Server. Lags in every second to third battle, ms > 400, fps < 3. Since I've checked my hardware to exclude that as a reason, I always wait for the fans in the garage to slow down, and when they speed up again, I start the next battle. *g*

Similar problems with the EU server. Lag goes up like crazy, blocks the game completely for between 1 to several seconds. Happens in every second match or so. Occasionally, client even doesn't respond any more and I have to kill it.

Has anyone also having issues actualy connecting to the game itself? i have been disconnecting in the garage or unable to connect when logging in. I have also had the in-battle lag.

Strangely although i cant controll my tank it takes a while (10-15 seconds) before everyone else stops moving/shooting at me.

Just happened again. I could watch the other tanks leaving the deployment zone and waggle my turret, but not move. Reconnected and managed to move forwards for 5 seconds then was disconnected again. Logged on for the third time to find my E-75 dead, half way up the map. It then took two attempts to log into this forum!
Think I'll quit for a bit and attempt something more constructive.

I've been having lag issues for a couple of day's, normaly 30-40 now sitting around 80 with massive spikes.

During 1 battle had 3 disconnects during game and then another in garage, as well as game not loading.

Also this is my second attempt to post because forum stopped responding. :Smile-angry:

I give up. Third time in as many games everything around me freezes within seconds of game starting, then I'm disconnected after 2-3 mins.

Yeah, been getting the same issue, have had a few disconnects in the last few days, but today it's unplayable, appears to be a UK-specific problem from what I can tell, pingplotter seems to indicate there's a lot of package loss to the wot server for me (perhaps specific to BT?)

Exactly the same for me. Also BT in the UK.

I'm from UK. Gave up when I was disconnected this morning twice in the same game. Logged on just now and started a game in my E-75. Was disconnected after 20 seconds and when I got back on was surrounded by the enemy and died after getting off one shot.

Think I'll try again tomorrow now.

Also BT...

I wish my first post was a happy one.. Anyway, same problem as everybody else, every single game hitting 999 ping either right off the bat or very shortly soon after but until the past few days came the game ran fine. I was living with it when it was only once in a few games but today it has been nothing but 999 ping and probably some very angry team mates.

Like some of  the others I'm in the UK and with BT.

I haven't had any other issues with other websites while this is going on however it may be worthwhile to mention that this happened to me once before with BT and Guildlaunch forums, the packets were getting lost in Texas and it (appeared) to of resolved itself within a couple of days despite the service team not saying anything to me about fixing it.
Whether its the same kind of thing in another area I have no idea, figured it could be worth mentioning that it might not be WoT's fault with everybody who has said who their ISP is using BT.

Hi WG staff, If you bother reading this, Please provide an address to test connection to - Ping, Trace and check where this issue is - if you know its an issue with the server or its connection just let us know

The same here yesterday and today.  After 5 seconds of every battle I lag then disconnect from the server.

If I manage to get back into the game, then its apparent that the European players outside of the UK are still in-battle and have either already killed me or are in the process of doing so.

I have lost 2 days of my premium account and also lost a LOT of experience due to crashing out of games that my team have managed to go on and win without me...

I WANT THIS PREMIUM AND EXPERIENCE REFUNDED!

*Angry face

Defeat
Battle: Lakeville 05 September 2012 14:05:07
Vehicle: VK 2801
Experience received: 70
Credits received: 4,309

An example of one that just happened where I thankfully lost...
