As some of my Rift friends already know, for the past week or so I kept losing connection to my internet, which made playing Rift practically impossible to play.
This was very frustrating to me, as I'm sure it was for those I was talking to/grouping with.
Today, however, we got a new (free) modem from Comcast, and not only is my connection good as new, but my latency is much better, too!
I still have only late teens/twentyish fps, but the game feels much smoother now, so I'm not too worried. Besides, I've seen complaints from all sorts of PC rigs, so I know it's not just me anyway.
I know this a bit random, but I'm just so happy to be able to play Rift again and have a solid connection!
