I started playing this game 5 years ago for a period of 2 years. I often got frustrated because a) the connection was poor and b) my computer overheated, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

I decide to have a 3-year break. I come here with a new 1.5k computer with brand new broadband as well with 35mbps wifi on my laptop... and I come on and I get ******* constant 'packet loss' errors and I get ditched by the client every 5 minutes or so.

Well, this game is unplayable for me. At least it was only £7 as opposed to £10... but seriously, what's happened to make the connection even worse than it was 3 years ago?

I don't know what happened to your ISP since you last time played. I have WiFi and everything is ok.

I'd bring your problems up with the ISP and ask them what they're doing with your packages.

my internet isn't bad... CCP's overly sensitive network is bad, the rest of my internet works perfectly fine and the eve client ditches me.

On a serious note, when you are finally able to log in, perhaps a transfer of your assets to me is in order?

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

I run two clients on a 7 year old system with 2GB RAM over an translation layer (wine) in Linux which uses a ZFS raidZ which consumes probably half of that RAM already.

I don't think your problem has something to do with the EVE client. I have hardly ever seen a game that runs so smooth (recent DDOS incidents excluded).

Are you sure it's plugged in?
Have you tried turning it off and then back on again?

I run this game off of a local internet provider, with a relatively cheap router. Eve works fine for me, barring obvious outages, and I typically run two or three clients at once.

But then I actually bother with things like port forwarding, network optimization, and such.

I was just in Houston, playing Eve on my business laptop, with cheesy hotel Wifi.. Houston isn't the problem.

I can log in I just can't sustain more than 5 minutes online. So don't try to be funny it makes you look stupid. Also it is CCP's fault because I've tried it on two separate wifi networks and the same problem occurs.

Just about everyone's been in Houston at some point, I was making sure she was aware of this thread.

On a serious note, the OP may want to refer to the correct forum area.

I hardly fi d it is the ips issue as most days mg net is fine and other days I get disconnect with socket closed every hour at a specific point is inc I have my first socket closed at 2035 I can expect my next socket closed at 2135.

And another reason I know it isn't isp, because it would affect other online games and even net browsing as the socket closed on eve often kicks the net connection offline as it reconnects and only happens when I'm on eve.

I also dont believe the garbage ccp tries to feed us about our data getting lost and that its not ddos/ other attacks

You're right! It is totally ridiculous that you would blame CCP for your ISPs problems.

Also ... WIFI lol!

Umm, I'm afraid it *is* your internet that is bad. CCP isn't singling you out.

Somewhere between your laptop and the on-ramps to the internet superhighway of the future, someone with about your level of networking expertise seems to be mismanaging things and causing your issue.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.
