Jumping disconnects players
Maybe some of us jump too much in game ....
Hopefully they can reproduce and fix it since that video from a poster above appears to show it quite easily.
05/01/2012 09:29 AMPosted by AlyviaWeird. I jump 99% of the time I'm online and never have this issue. Maybe it's all of your guys's isp's being crappy at the same time. :o
I can say with 99% certainty that it's not ISP related, it's a client issue. The "proc rate" so to speak varies from client to client. My raid leader is able to invoke a DC by spam jumping into a wall in <30 seconds where it can take me minutes to do it.
THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE WITH MY INTERNET CONNECTION AND ALL MY DRIVERS ARE COMPLETELY UPDATED.
Since 4.3 I disconnect randomly when jumping (or disengaging, which is extremely frustrating in arenas and rated battlegrounds), running, or flying near a wall or down stairs. For example, I hopped onto the fence at the farm in AV during an RBG and disconnected.
I can force it to happen by jumping down the staircase in front of the Violet Citadel. But otherwise it is usually pretty random.
I am able to log back in IMMEDIATELY. I do not lag at all. When it happens, everything stops for a literally one second and I am back at the log in screen seeing "YOU HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED FROM THE SERVER" for the 500th time. It is NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT my internet connection. I stay connected to my calls in Skype, my vent/mumble servers, and my streams to not pause or buffer.
I KNOW for a fact that MANY other people have been having this issue as of the last patch. The frequent "randomly disconnecting" threads being created in this forum makes it clear.
PLEASE help me pinpoint the REAL issue here as it has become beyond frustrating and I am finding it extremely difficult to "just deal with it" as severely impacts my performance in the game, especially in PvP.
Everyone vote this thread up. Maybe we can get some attention from Blizzard.
I have been unable to pinpoint where the issue is coming from.
It could be one of several things.
1) Same type of issue that occured with the Death Grip off the boat in stranglethorn bug. The server doesnt know where to put you, so it dumps you. I have logged back in several times and been at the GY in the barrens, which is the default GY when wow doesnt know where to stick you horde side.
I think the above is the most likely.
2) It could be an issue with a graphical bug of some sort. I am less inclined to believe this though.
I am going to start posting in this thread, each time I DC, and where I was at when this occured. Hopefully I will get a response, as this is very annoying, specially during the middle of a Heroic attempt.
Mouse turning against walls causes this too.
Go jam your character against a wall, hold down right click and wiggle. You'll get DCed soon enough.
I am surprised this isn't brought up more. It practically ruins pvp. Starting to wonder if most of the player base are keyboard turners.
It isn't necessarily only jumping but rather terrain based.
See this video for an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZImtgz0XYM
Jumping might seem like the trigger but its really the terrain that you are jumping on that causes it. In some parts of the world I can jump 5 billion times without a disconnect. On a rocky surface though even walking across it or dropping off a small incline will cause the disconnect.
Here is the other tread in case you are wondering:
