The problem: Sometimes the whole game could just stop updating. Every enemy, ally and so on is having their animation going, but they're in same spot. After 20 to 30 seconds, one of these things could happen:
a) The game suddenly starts to update again. Which means that it is updated until the present, so if I'm surrounded by enemies and haven't mashed the mouse buttons while it didn't update, I would propably be dead when it starts to update again :D
b) I get the message: "The game connection has been lost: your client has been disconnected from the server" and will be sent to the character screen. All my stats is saved, but I'm starting at the last checkpoint.
Addition to this: Sometimes when I get the message, if I try to browse with my web browser, I couldn't reach any websites. I get a message in Google Chrome: "Cannot resolve the DNS-adess". Although, my connection is stable so other internet-related things may work". And I can use the internet connection with my smart phone at the same time.
When does this usually happen? During the evening/night, it is unplayable because it happens every 5 minute. Other time it is random. Around 1 pm til 6 pm, it could happens once every hour maybe.
Things I've tried:
- Choose a different class than Barbarian.
- Unchecked the checkboxes in launcher option.
- Joined the general chat.
- Port forwarded the following ports: 80, 1119, 6881-6999 on both TCP and UDP protocol and to my laptops local IP adress.
