masteradam13 posted a topic in QuestionsI admittedly have a very bad internet connection but on good days with fair weather (it is a wireless connection, not from modem to PC, but from modem to service) I can play a raid or two without having more than one disconnect. Unfortunately I love this game so much but I cannot play more than that when the game constantly sends me to the main menu when I experience even a milisecond of lost packets. I understand the instance kind of demands that you resynchronize with the game world, but why do I have to go through this painful and teeth gritting process of going out to the main menu, clicking a couple times to ensure that I actually want to go back into the raid or abandon (who would? I probably haven't even seen action yet at this point), then waiting for that loading screen to finish just to witness my character fall over dead because in the 30 seconds it takes to get back into the raid a player or scav has had enough time to run up on me without me having even a momentary chance to check my surroundings? I know this kind of gripe is a bit conceited but honestly I just want this game to accept that I have somewhat bad internet and let me resync immediately instead of essentially killing me by disconnecting. Just this afternoon I got booted in the middle of a PvP battle in the dorms when suddenly I lose connection, die, and lose all the gear that I had in a fight I was certainly winning. Please I just wish that someone with crap internet like myself will get some attention from the Devs in order to improve the experience for people like me with unfortunately terrible internet connections.
This game uses a lot of bandwidth, excessive amounts compared to other games. I find EFT to be using 2-4mb/s of data when playing, this may not be a problem for any American or European players who have good internet but for me, living in Australia with an astounding 1.1mb/s internet I am unable to play without a server disconnect or 2-minute desync. I have NBN (Australia's equivalent of American internet) at my other house (long story) and am able to play perfectly on exactly the same setup but when staying at this house I am unable to play whatsoever. Do any other OCE or global escapees have the same problem as me? Will BSG be changing the absurd amount of data this game uses?
