I don't think it's my internet... Lately, I've been getting these long hangs during battles. Everything slows down and stops, either for a few seconds, or long enough to kick me out and make me reconnect, which happens immediately, hence why I suspect it's something to do with the server and not my connection... EU1.

 

Speedtest shows normal internet speeds when I run the test. I'm not sure how I could check if I lost connection when it happens...all the lights on the router are lit up as they normally are, so, it shouldn't be on my end.

 

Anyone else experience something similar these days? Talking about EU1.

I'm on EU1....no problems.

Just to note, that Speed test only checks your connection between you and your IP provider, not between you and the WoT servers, the problem is most likely on route after your IP providers hub.

EU2 server is in Luxembourg, EU1 is in Amsterdam. Different routes and cities.

Well, then it's most likely as was pointed out. A bad apple between you and WG. As this is all run via the server, and your data goes from your ISP to WG via at least 8 to 10 other points, and has to go back before you even fire. If anyone of those has an issue, is past capacity or just bad. You will get those spikes. If you run a plotter trace you will spot it instantly.

I had a similar issue but the game froze, required me to sign out and back into windows - where I discovered the "Display driver failed to start" error.

Only happened in WoT, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling graphics drivers etc - I changed from Nvidia Gaming driver to Studio driver and also found a post on the US forums that suggested reducing graphics settings to High from Ultra (I also went back to SD), haven't seen a freeze so far since then.

I take it you have both tried safe mode? and run Pingplotter to check your connection to the servers?

When this happens to me it is usually an update of some sort. In settings, try pausing your updates for a week.

Or just, you know, get faster internet. :trollface:

 

It wouldn't disconnect you if it was that. The connection just breaks for a few seconds, then comes back. Sometimes it takes longer...

 

Your best bet is switching the server. That's what helped me...

I have this problem not during the game but just about after every other game, this don't happen in WoW's and it don't happen when I visit other websites, damn annoying.

It is an old discussion, but do you realize that the portal you log in to is not the same as the server you play on?

You can ping the portal, but not the servers.

 

So it is a bit of a futile exercise...pingplotting to the WoT servers...

I only play on EU1, and dont have this problem at all. I can count on one hand the number of games Ive disconnected from the last year.
