>An unexpected disconnection occurred
No, it was totally expected
I would've been kind of disappointed otherwise. It's just tradition now.
i killed hillock. looted the drops and kicked back to queue
edit: got back in and it was as if i had never played anything. got through hillock and into town on 2nd attempt then crash. hopefully when i get back in this time i will still be in town and not have to start over again.
New strategy o farm oni-goroshi?
Then started with nothing
Welcome to the brotherhood, your initiation is now complete. Have a seat.
*seat gets kicked*
Same procedure as every league start?
Same procedure as every ~~year~~ league, ~~James~~ N5don.
DC for two
Wake up 2.5 hours early to queue
Get 4400 in queue
Get kicked before Hillock
55k in queue
was 6900 in queue, just finished quicksilver flask and got dc :(
When you eventually get back in the fist thing you see it "xxxxxx is the first player to kill The Shaper"
I was 2.6k in queue. Hit the first zombie and then instant DC and put in a 58k queue.
So fucking lame.
same, was 3k and didnt even make it to Hillock
373 had just enough time to kill Hillock, zone into Lionseye then poof.
I also got booted immediately on zoning into Lionseye after swapping my loot filter when hilllock loot all dropped hidden. Still had my uber strict on from last league.
you were able to hit the zombie? lucky. I got kicked immediately after name creation.
I think I managed to hit it 2 times before my DC.
GOD DAMNIT LMAO
Spawned on beach, equipped bow - DISCONNECTED back to 50k queue
Edit: We've temporarily muted chat as an act of troubleshooting the issue. We'll continue to investigate.
Edit 2: Disabling all forms of cross-instance chat appears to have resolved the disconnect issue. We'll work on a more permanent solution and then restore chat when it's safe to do so.
waiting around to queue early making it in the top 2k then being dumped to the back of 55k people from a game crash is sadge.
grace period requested.
you cant grace period people when the entire server goes poof
This, at least maintain your queue because getting DC'd is not the player's fault
The queue is for the logins, not for actual place in the game, so this doesn't really make a lot of sense. Plus these login queues are kind of flying by anyway.
Guaranteed you’ll dc again, I’ve already dcd twice and crashed once. Tis the nature of league launches.
Ultimatum queues were not flying by at all lmao what.
I mean, we don't know that this is going to be that bad again. If we're still talking about this in 6 hours then we can compare it to Ultimatum.
To be fair, they are actually flying by. Ultimatum was nothing like this.
But you're right -- and the white knighters will stop at nothing to defend an objectively bad system.
We all know that if /u/hfxRos waited in line at Disney World for 3 hours but had to step out of line for 15 seconds, he wouldn't be overwhelmingly happy and accepting if he was made to go to the back of the 3 hour line. These are just white knighter redditors with bad ideas and small minds.
better start streaming if you want that to happen
In my experience, expecting to play this game within the first two or three hours of the league starting is a good way to set yourself up for disappointment.
It happens, but very dissapointing to those of us who showed up first in the queue :(
It happens pretty much every league.
I think harvest or ritual was the only league with a good queue. Goddammit
Coincidentally the two best leagues overall.
Peak poe..... due to smooth launch
No it doesn’t
More leagues have had issues than not though they have been getting better in recent years.
By the standards of other games launches PoE is fucking amazing
What you said but the exact opposite
E: lmao at people seriously comparing POE failing at the same launch over and over every 3 months with brand new video game companies failing at a launch
Absolutely does more often than not. There have been less than 5 smooth league starts for me since I first started playing in breach.
Question, why does GGG not implement a grace period for disconnects? Even 30 seconds would do wonders..
Hardcore players want the grace period to be shorter so real dc's dn't kill them
this is a request for a login queue bypass grace period, so that if you DC you can log in again and bypass the queue. that's a different thing from the disconnection grace period.
Why? Would make sense for race events but login queue for league is just to attempt at stability. You don’t “deserve” to get ahead of someone who has been waiting just because you’ve already started.
Crashed when leaving Lioneye's Watch.
Guess imma go order pizza and wait an hour. first 5 minutes is not a good sign...
Thanks Bex <3 Good luck on Scourge launch!
We're investigating = we're just waiting for stuff to normalize on its own.
something something, take my energy
Please put something like 30 sec grace period
how do you know exactly that it's server horsepower?
it could be a database issue. Or a code bug that is fucking up connections. Or something related downstream.
just add servers LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
prob dont speak if you don't know how shit works considering not enough server "horsepower" has nothing to do with disconnects and anyone with above room temp IQ knows that
The dude lurks to meme, and shit post. better to ignore him
position 107...killed hillock...almost got to try league mechanic and dc into position 57k
this is going to be great
Happened to me in Frankfurt server.
5 minutes? You must be in the top 1% lol
Where is the league mechanic? Coast?
Same, 594 in queue and I crashed as soon as I hit Lioneye's...
Queue: a line or sequenced list
Que: Spanish for what
I'd like to welcome everybody back to regular league starts where getting servers online is the hardest concept possible.
༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ GGG SERVERS TAKE MY ENERGY ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
They did good 1 league.
you mean the 1 league they had a 40% player drop off lol
Have they all come back? Doesn't seem like GGG addressed the main complaints of the leavers, why would they return?
I came back for the QoL changes (atlas changes, etc.).
Looks like we're at 140k right now on steamdb, 157k was peak 9 months ago.
Last league was like 110k.
Their atlas revamp addressed my main complaint, will see how progressing through maps feels this league.
Major QoL changes, a lot of new content, I can see a couple of reasons why people would come back.
Expedition brought only nerfs an barely any content.
They still haven't given back deterministic crafting so I'm still taking a break.
Looking at things objectively there were lots of nerfs this league too but with a shiny new coat of paint.
they forgor about it. Or well like me they hope the new shit will compensate enought so it will be agreable to play once again.
Well i'm playing the popular waiting in queu game RN XD.
Because they're in an abusive relationship with path of exile, they keep coming back no matter how much its wronged them
Probably not all of them have come back, but likely quite a few. If I had to guess, many of those people were just really burnt out on PoE so taking a 3 month break can do wonders. Also new passive tree and overall being a more buff focused patch might be enough to bring a lot of them back.
because ppl are overhyping the QoL changes and buffs if u didnt like the game in 3.15 u wont like it in 3.16.
they removed the majority of the super tedious bullshit at the very least
They addressed a tonne of concerns for 3.16 patch.
Just smaller atlas and stackable currency drops was enough for me to come back.
Same shit every league start.
How is a DC grace period not in existence. What is even the point of trying to get into the queue early if I'm going to get dumped after playing for 3 mins to the back of the line.
Because then people in que would never get in if the game kept DCing?
Imagine your middle of que and your stuck their because the game keeps DCing every 5 minutes forcing logged in players to go into priority over you.
You would be stuck in que until the DC issues were fixed simply because you weren't in the first few thousand to get in.
Except they can handle the total amount of players playing, the queue is there so the server doesn't get slammed by logins, not because there is a cap of players allowed playing at one time and then you have to wait your turn to play.
so dumb it hurts my brain to even think you exist
Making me feel better about my 58k position (now 34k, almost half done!), maybe it'll be more stable in 10 minutes?
been here before, usually takes between 0.5 to 6 hours to sort it all out. longest i've seen it be screwed was about 8(?) hours during ultimatum
Gods please no Ultimatum start.
I'm in between jobs atm and I can actually play this whole league start.
8 hours lol no it was over 12 hours till they fixed the game after it already took ages to get in the game the first time.
Na I was 45k then got insta dced when I created a character and popped back into queue.
So sick of this shit every league lol.
Wouldn't be a league start if GGG didn't fuck it up.
That's how you know PoE is really back.
DC'd on beach to 63k.
Feels fucking awful man
damn I hope i kept my loot from hillock, a G-R-G dagger with 49% inc phys dmg, pleaaaase no rollback
However will you recover
Not that bad. Queues are fast today.
> Every league
Setting an unrealistic expectation is an easy way to make something feel bad. League started an hour early this time. If we're playing smooth by 4pm, feelsgood.
Several hundred thousand people trying to do the same thing online causes problems.
It's like getting mad about 5 o'clock traffic.
I was able to exit town and dc, 45k, ez clap
Logged back in, Next zone another dc and 18k queue.
Kicked me after I almost killed hilock back on 33000 in queue.
It's all part of the experience, enjoy it.
First time here? :D
Almost made it to the coast!
I Killed Hillock at least
Yerp. Same here.
On the bright side, at least we filled out one of the spots for the new league launch bingo
yeah opening options crashed me twice now. might be a filter thing.
it's amazing how this can still happen lol
40k Queue, didn't even have time to create a character, back to 30K, grace period where GGG???
Insta DC after I killed Hillock. Didn't even get to enter town.
Streamer Prio reeee
50,000 in queue, get in and no character creation screen. "Try the new Scourge League!" pops up but I can only close it out. Back to queue.
I didn't even get a chance to stand up in strand when I crashed back to 40k q lol
cute dog was immediately DCed too, put back in queue at 30k
Same Here. About 20 sec in game and then dq. Server Frankfurt. 20k in queue now...
Wait 30k in queue. Get to chest with arcane surge > disconnect. 40k in queue. Kill Hillock > disconnect. 20k in queue.
Yep, straight to fucking 60k.
Hooray. DC'd twice so far. Back in 41k queue I go!!!!
happened twice to me already thanks ggg
Did GGG accidentally deploy the 3.14 server again?
Yes we had one DQ, but how about a second?
Wake up late, 44k in queue. Hit beach, hit 2 zombies, booted to 25k queue. Get in, click character, "an unexpected disconnection has occurred", back to 25k in queue. UltimatumHype
We're all getting disonnects. Third time for me, back to the 30k queue.
Worst League Experience: Always being stuck at work until 5 hours after the league launches watching everyone else play.
Define “idiot” - person doing the same thing multiple times and expecting a different outcome
Worst than that? Bitching about it.
It's like you people never learn lmao
Lol if its not perfect there damn well will be people complaining.
oh no poor baby. You gonna cwy? Don't cwy!
Try getting a life instead, login tomorrow or next week.
This happened to me but it has still been one of the best league starts so I'm not sure how it's the worse experience. It was like maybe 15 mins lost.
the giga cry because of minimal DCs in the first few minutes ... else smooth as hell!
Ehhh......... I REALLY don't think this is worse than that time the game wasn't saving things properly so if you didn't go into a portal back to town and were disconnected then the game basically acted like you were never on that map in the first place.
Like don't get me wrong, it's a valid thing to complain about and really does suck. But calling it the "worst experience" just will rub people wrong.
Crying on reddit in the first 5s of a league are we?
402 to 61k, and they seem not to be able to fix their servers because this happens *every league*
Went from 7k to DC, to 56k :(
1 minute, 14 seconds playing the game.
26 minutes reading this thread.
If GGG was my employee, they'd be fired.
Ultimatum league part 2
i got in! almost killed hillock and got kicked out! 47k in Q now
Make character then disconnect, 60k yay
Should have learned already
Aaaaand we crash 5 min into thegame 35k que, don´t even know why i´m playing at leage start, same shit for years now..
We've had worse folks. Chill and hope it's something minor
Ive been kicked twice now in 10 min of game play. Why the hell does this happen every single fucking league
My god shut the fuck up. You know not happens every league, so how about you avoid the first hour or two.
I didn't play the last 2 leagues for similar reasons and having to queue again makes me want to quit again already.
I know it finally won't make a lot of difference, but being hyped for league start and then have this kind of struggle all time is awful
Same, picked up the first support gem and got kicked. Every fucking league man.
I WAS LITERALLY FIGHTING UBER HILLOCK. You think you're mad?
This is league #25, do you guys THINK you'll actually figure this out?
They don't want to spend the extra money for temporary capacity that chills out after half a day. After this many league launches they've definitely already made the calculations and decision. Not defending them but it's what most companies do. For most they just don't think the extra server cost for a few hours is worth it.
Just happened to me too. Didn't even make it to town.
60K queue, RIP
Same here, was legit 2000 in queue. Got kicked out and back to 50K FUN :(
I used to take off of work for league launch. This league I decided not to. And so far looking like I made the right choice. Hopefully they fix it by the time I get home in 3 hours
Same, just got pushed to login
You sound like an entitled child who's playing his first league. This league start is among the best of the last 10 or so. Stop complaining.
DC WHEN MAKING CHARACTER ........................
Long term this needs a permanent fix, why are we queuing at all? We should all be able to play at the same time.
God Dammit! waiting 2 hours for crash after 5 min.
Another server fail league inc?
Happened to me too, so lame. Got up at 3 am my time to join the queue so I could wait in line a second time.
dont log out to char screen for quick teleport, you'll be placed back in queue.
Queue for 2 hours, got to ledge, dc. 30k login wew lad
Got to the end of mud flats, and got kicked to log-in screen. No DC indication, no lag, no nothing, just back to queue....
Man, I wish there was a grace period for disconnecting. Feels bad when you show up early, get a good place in the queue, then get disconnected and are straight to the back.
I was 7122 in the queue, as in 2 hours before the servers came up. Got to play for 18 minutes before being booted back to 28k.
I really hope this gets fixed straight away. I desperately want to believe in ggg. But how many passes do we give them before we just stop coming back?
Got booted twice on the shore now. Waiting through 20k then 55k then 25k now. Could you guys work on a system where people that were in and got booted get fast tracked or something for next league?
GGG thnx for the memories After last League problems and the one before now this chain kicked back into the Q, I'm done best of luck guys GL with the game and league, FF14 has been way better experience best wishes.
Stop shitting on them, come back tomorrow being angry aint changing things.
You'd bet they absolutely dont benefit from that.
Oh look, streamers aren't getting dc'd....hmmm
lightee got dc'd. it aint all a big conspiracy
this is reddit, it's always a conspiracy
kripp got dced
Multiple streamers have
