... but it doesnt give anyone the right to start calling someone names, respect is the key and seems to be lacking on these forums.
Amen Brother. However, when people are told to call their ISP's and ask them if they would kindly reroute the internet so we can play SWTOR, it tends to get people mighty frustrated awfully quick.
The problem, I now believe it to be, is that the server client is just too sensitive. This is Biowares problem. Example: MMO #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13...etc...etc seem to run perfectly fine, even though there is some packet loss due to congestion. Their developers understood that not every customer has a perfect pristine internet connection and have built in protection to prevent the death of disconnect.
Whereas SWTOR developers did not go this route. They belived everyone had a pristine connection and so built their software without any of thsoe protections that the othe top MMO's have.
Thanks for those of you that offered up the above likely and logical explanation of why this issue affects so many people across so many ISP's all around the world.
People like Mr, Brooks has a pristine connection from Australia so he doesnt understand why so many others are having issues or why we get so frustrated when we are told to call our ISP's. I'm sorry Mr Brooks but you appear to not understand the issue. I'm sure you are a great person and have no doubt you have talent in something.
What we, thsoe that are having problems, need is for an IT specialist who works in the SWTOR team, and who's duties specifically revolve around server and internet protocols to please come forward and explain to us what the heck is happening.
We ONLY want to play SWTOR with the same stability issues of your friend OwenBrooks. That's all we ask. Yes we do get frustrated. Yes, at times we get angry. But you have no idea the frustration that was caused when we were simply told to call our ISP. We felt insulted by the illogical reasoning that led to that ridiculous suggestion.
Please help us Mr BW IT professional. You are our only hope.
