      Constant loading and connection problems

      I'm starting a live realm bug report thread here, as KI needs to be aware that the issue has not been fixed for everyone. There have been previous discussions in these other forum threads:

      https://www.wizard101central.com/for...-Spiral-ending

      https://www.wizard101central.com/for...tch-on-Feb-7th

      While my login is slow, it does not give me an error. But once I am in, almost every area transition takes a very long time to load, and sometimes does not complete. Porting home has the same issue, and sometimes it brings up the "area closed" sign. Switching characters also hangs, often resulting in a disconnect. The recent maintenance patches have not changed anything for me.

      If anyone else is still experiencing this, can you chime in?

      I have been laggy and freezing still, but it wasn't like it was before. I'm also still getting the connecting to server messages, but it's not quite as often as it was. Overall, something was fixed enough to make the game run better, but it's still not completely fixed.

      Re: Constant loading and connection problems

      I was just ingame doing some Pet training. Transition screens from one location to another were slow. Movement ingame was choppy.

      In the training scenes, everything looks 'pixelated'. It is not extreme, but it is noticeable. Ex: around the edges of the Items, like the target, it can be seen. And when I moved the cannon around to reposition it, there was a 'black shadow' going over the entire screen, like a 'Shadow figure'. Really odd. Attaching a few ingame screenshots. Not sure if the 'pixelated' issue shows on them.

      Re: Constant loading and connection problems

      Ki is only partially responsible for the server disruptions and other problems related to the internet. Like what was previously stated during the latest server shutdown, Ki receives the majority of their online services through a third party internet provider and while Ki likely has complained to them (as they're easily losing revenue from these losses), there's little Ki could do without damaging their relationship or spending more money (for an internet upgrade plan) they're allocating for other projects. I imagine Ki's hands are tied, which is why I believe these problems weren't solved in the latest Nightmare Standard patch and why I sometimes have to log on multiple times. These connection issues are going to continue forever unless this third party internet provider gets their act together and whenever this will happen, Ki cannot predict. I'm not sure I would call these constant loading and connection problems a bug but it is problematic...

      Still experiencing the issues. I can't help wondering if it's something to do with a regional server; I'm on the west coast.

      It’s been eight days now since Feb 2, the day of the login errors. I hope whatever got fixed for most of you eventually makes its way to me!

      Re: Constant loading and connection problems

      One of my accounts crashed twice within an hour. My other accounts were fine. It was just the one account that kept crashing. There was also the connecting to server messages again when swapping wizards and lagging out still. At least the game is still playable despite the issues, so it's not really too bad.

      Now no one can buy or sell at the bazaar

      I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are. ~ Milton Berle
