Attempting to Resume at this point will result in another delay followed by a msg that the request has timed out. If I log out, I am returned to the login screen (after a blank screen with only the mouse cursor for about 30 seconds). At this point if I log back in, I am usually able to Resume Game with no problem. Trouble is, this issue keeps happening and at random intervals. Sometimes two minutes after starting a game; sometimes not at all even after several hours of continuous play.
I've noticed this issue does tend to happen more during the evening hours (EST zone), although I have as yet to identify a common item/area/time that could be the cause. I did check through the thread list here to see if anyone else was experiencing this particular issue, but I didn't notice any previous posts on this.
Oh yes... 2007 24" iMac, running 10.6.8, 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4Gb RAM, RadeonHD2600 w/256Mb VRAM.
I run the game at 1280x800 with textures on high, everything else on low, anti-aliasing and lowered particle graphics enabled. Aside from occasional spikes of high latency, I have no FPS / visual performance issues.
Connecting via CenturyLink DSL with a "max" speed of 3.0mbps. Generally my latency sits between 150-300ms depending on server activity. (From what I've noticed, the bar is almost always in the green—below 300ms—when this issue occurs.)
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
