  1. I personally cannot attest or contribute any theories relative to @Noob_Guardian. I have never encountered a time where my "proximity" to another player may or may not have been the contributing factor to my disconnect. What I can do is provide a brief synopsis of what happened to me a few days ago. Read on: For Entertainment purposes only. The most interesting part of my story, is getting Disconnected 3 times in a 20min period. Keep in mind, after a disconnect, I go through the "Re-Update" process on the APB Launcher client, cause ........ Well, I use the vanilla launcher. (I know ,,,,, boring ... ) So I am back in district for maybe a total of 3min before my next disconnect. 3 Times in a 20min period. A bit odd I would say. So what exactly was the prelude to these fantastic moments ? Hmm. I remember I was not in any mission, just kind of trolling in District chat. I wasn't saying anything Hateful or mean. I suppose I was making fun of someone, a little bit , and then BAM ... dc'ed I hop back on a few minutes later, everyone is still there, and I pick up where I left of. () and then BAM ... dc'ed Huh, this is odd. Perhaps I should play a mission. Which I did. A PUB group mission. A mix of Gold's Silvers and Yellows Our group was winning. I made some absurdly good kills, and received the proverbial angry whispers. THEM: You are such a f*cken noob, you suck ME: Hey, are you that guy I just killed ? THEM: FU ME: Hey , I get it , you're Yellow, and you want to get better THEM: F off and die ME: So.... I should not send a friend invite ? ME: I really think I can help you get better. (of course they have trounced me like 5 or 6 times before, with whatever skills or tools they have) and then BAM ... dc'ed This happened right before the mission ended, and we were winning. DOH !! Haha, you get the picture . This is my life ... I used to get angry or frustrated ....... Not anymore ...
  2. Odd that this topic has come up again. This brings to mind this statement by @Noob_Guardian; So I thought that that exploit had been patched. I was playing a few days ago over the weekend for a couple of hours and DC'ed 4 times. The 1st time was withing the 1st hour. The last 3 times occurred in a 20min period. I thought that was a bit odd. I'm not one to really believe in coincidences, and my internet was fine. Hopped back on the district after a re-start and noone else was effected. I may have upset a Yellow player or two. There's always that possibility.
  3. Glad that the exploit was patched. Do you know what that exploit was ?
  4. Are you sure ? Do you have "Empirical proof" (I love that word) Haha... I was always wondering the timing of my disconnects. Oh well I still have my threshold to fall back on.
  5. Ok, so now you have my attention !! You're saying that a player can DC another player in game ? I always wondered if that was possible. Only because the only times I get DC'ed is at the most opportune moment for the oppisition. We were on a tail end of a mission and winning, and I would lose connection. I'm assuming in those cases, I get no standing or money. I never DC when just driving around and playing tunes, only when on a mission. My DC frequency level does increase however when I might be trolling some low rank yellow player using a Legendary, and I either wreck them, or annoy them. I am never toxic towards other players, but I know I annoy some players with my comments and subsequent kills. So without giving too much detail, how the hell can another player DC me ? Anything a player can do to protect themselves ? Is playing with a VPN a possible protective measure, and is it allowed. All I ever wanted was some competitive gameplay. When I annoy or wreck an obvious "aimbotter"/"wallhacker" , someone who relies on 3rd party tools, and then loses to me... Well, they are not happy .. haha I am what you would call a Generic player. No Tools No Special Launcher Just me and my subpar to average skills wrecking low rank Yellows
  6. Just me ... I quickly Startup the APB executable, it goes into "repair" mode.. (downloading) and hop back on. Noone else was effected. I think God hates me After the 3rd disconnect of the evening. I call it quits. I figure God wants me to do something else with my time. YouTube surfing, another game, hell, even doing my laundry without any issues.
  7. I am usually in a mission when I get the disconnects. And almost ALWAYS, our group is winning. Typically, we are on the tail end of a mission, we're gonna win, and then BAMMM. I get a disconnect. I just want to cry.
  8. Been playing this game for a number of years. Will be probably be playing this game for the foreseeable future. I am sure we have all experienced the proverbial Game crash and the Windows Pop-Up to Send a Report or Dismiss. Admittedly, I was dutiful in the first 6 years of game play to click "Send Report"... Now a days, I ask, "Why bother" and click "dismiss" Even posted on the forums for some input from the gaming company as to the value of these reports. Never heard a word... c'est la vie...... But my threshold for "when I call it quits" for the evening has always hung around 3 disconnects. This usually occurs within a 2hr game play session. Have not been very successful in passing that threshold. Typically, in a 2 hour game play session, my avg disconnects has been 3. and then I call it quits for the night. What is your threshold before you end your gaming session ? 2 3 ... more Curious what the avg threshold is . Hell, not much else to talk about .. let's talk thresholds.
  9. @CookiePuss, not to "rain on your parade" or anything, but I'm not sure what would be accomplished by providing you any evidentiary proof or even a name. As thoughtful and measured as your responses to forum posts have been in the past, a tone of cynicism can only go so far. I mean, granted you are a member of the "SPCT" team, just not sure if you would run off and perform any due diligence to either refute or collaborate @DreAmGirL' s alleged witness allegations. So, maybe there just wasn't any value seen in providing that information to you. We can't all be Heroes..
  10. I am not one to give up hope .. hahahaha .... Merged. I believe that it is important to believe ,,, Granted we are a bit behind schedule .. hahahaha ....
  11. System uptime is a bit behind schedule .. This stuff happens. We are running behind a bit .. We are about an hour late .. Please stay tuned .. I am happy to answer any questions ... Merged. I admit ,,, I was hoping for more .. but I got less .. C'est la vie..
  12. Hopefully no one has any time constraints this evening ...
  13. Thank you LO for another month of Premium. I could very well be a millionaire by the end of the year. WOOT !!
