    Default Ascended Disgrace

    Trion: learn the difference between getting disconnected by ISP and/or VPN issues and quitting a warfront. Getting slapped with a 15 minute denial of service a few times a night when my VPN is wonky gets old very fast.

    I've gotten DC'ed many times in WFs. I just exit, log back in, and I'm still in the WF. It will only happen if you're out for a long time.

    A slightly different story for those of us with a VPN. If the VPN wonks out we get a a message regarding the change in external IP address, shutting down Rift. By the time the VPN is re-engaged and Rift loaded up again, we are stuck with the 15 minute slap to the face.

    I don't want to see the Ascended Disgrace debuff removed, as it does keep the lesser masses from bailing warfronts at the slightest hint of challenge. However, I am hoping that the devs can make it a little more nuanced and able to treat disconnections differently from those simply leaving the battle.

    Never heard of Google Fiber. I'll look it up, but given my current location (China), I am not terribly hopeful.

    Because the difference between your ISP going out and leaving a WF by pulling my internet cord is....

    There is a time delay that allows you to get back in if you get disconnected.

    You are being disconnected longer than that. Seems like this should be posted on your ISP's forums or emailed to whomever set up your VPN for you. The timeout works fine for those with normal disconnects.

    Someone's wife kicking the **** out of him for being a wanker (wireless router here).

    But not everyone has a wife or other loved one to worry about. Even so, I am curious as to how many people would resort to pulling out the cable to leave a bad match - given all of the background applications, downloads, and other family members depending on an active signal.

    Perhaps Trion - given more manpower - could monitor such disconnections for suspicious patterns and hand out Ascended Wanker debuffs for those who abuse it?

    One can dream.

    I like it when I'm trying to fix a macro at the spawn while mounted/moving about, and within 60s enough people decide to report me afk, thus kicking me from the warfront and granting me the honor of "Ascended Exile" (60min WF debuff) ...now that's a laugh.

    Not many people in this game I think, but it used to be fairly common in RTS games since that would usually not give you a loss. Of course this was easier when people used wired connections since all you had to do was reach behind the computer. Now it's a pain to go downstairs and unplug the wireless and piss off everyone else in the house.

    Or you could just alt tab and turn off your wireless connection. Don't even have to leave your seat. Don't even have to go that far though, all you'd have to do is close the game itself and it'd be as good as losing the internet as far as the game servers are concerned.
