Random disconnects
Sorry for my English.

I've got a big problem with WAB several months ago. Wargame seems to loose connection in almost every game without any reason just after start of loading. I don't know why. Some time ago I tried to turn off RaidCall and it helped, but now I have this issue again. It can be connected with my pretty bad PC, but I've NEVER experienced it either with AB or European Escalation before November/December (when it happened). Does anybody has the same problem?

I have had similar problems. I don't know what you mean by diconnecting. My dad and I play a lot, and sometimes we notice somethign strange. We don't disconnect in the game - it doesn't show the mesage that "player XXX" is timed out". What does happen is we notice that we are paying two different games. For example, my computer woukd show some sectors are captured, while his would show others are. Mine might show that my team was in the lead, while his might show his was. But there was never any formal "disconnect" or message from Wargame. Is this the problem you have been having?

No, the game shows me "Connection Lost" right after start of the match and kick me to the main menu. Almost in every single game, I don't know why it happens or doesn't happen sometimes.

Hm. Interesting. I've never had that problem, but my guess would be is that one of the ports that wargame needs to operate is being used by your OS. What OS are you running?

Windows XP. Of course, it can affect the problem, but I swear, I didn't have this issue in summer, for examlpe, only after November/December.

Yeah it might happen on and off again. I'm no expert on this or anything, but this is just my speculation.

Whenever you start up up your computer, your PC assigns ports for networking for certain processes. Games need certain ports to run correctly. It is possible that your PC is assigning certain ports that the game needs. I am not sure if this is the issue, but I have had connection issues in other games and ports was the problem.

I am not sure how to fix it for this game. You might have to do a little research.
Start task manager and find the PID (process ID) of wargame: AB
After that, start command prompt and type "netstat -ao" without the quotations. This will bring up a list of PIDs and the ports they are using. Match wargame PID from taskmanger to the list of PIDs in command prompt, and you can see what port it is using.

Once again, I'm not sure if this will get you anywhere. You might have to do some research for what to do with this info, and how to reserve ports, etc. That's about all I have for ya. Maybe someone who has had a similar problem can help! Sorry!
