Should I give up? "an unexpected disconnection"
"an unexpected disconnection error has occured" and other such errors. Sometimes takes 2 or 3 times just to login into the game. The worst is of course when trying to run some loot back to town. Once I'm in a zone it seems OK but any time trying to change zones the error can hit. This happens with predictive mode as many keep suggesting.

I originally gave up in 2013 because the god awful desync from here in the USA.

What I'm looking at is that google, Steam and the official forums show people with the same error going back to August 2017. That's a long time. How long does it take them to fix these things? Not sure I want to tough it out while they get their game working right.

The problem is not everyone has the problem. Im on the west coast and no issues at all.

Have you submitted a ticket with all the needed info ? If they cant reproduce the problem its really hard to fix it. And since not everyone has it, it seems it might be on the user end ?
Did some winMTR and / or contacted support for this issue?

Desync could be on your side, ggg's side or somewhere in the middle. I would guess it's hard to locate an issue when you don't know the problem.

But just waiting for the chance maybe its getting better somewhere in the future, is the least helpful way you should go down.

I mentioned desync but that was from 2013 and what made me quit then.

I don't see a good reason to submit a ticket at this time. What I see as I stated is that this issue goes back months and still gets mentioned here & there even now. I'm not seeing this in other games I'm playing. I'm getting the feeling now that is the answer I'll get - sorry, can't reproduce it, this problem isn't on our end. Yet there are plenty of posts about it.

Oh well, I'll go a bit longer until I rage quit again LOL

so you can say with absolut certainty that all "an unexpected disconnection" problems, you can find on the internet, are related to GGG's end of the game?

but to come back to the initial question in the start post, Yes give up. When you dont see a reason to do something active to trying to resolve the problem, instead of just looking, then I dont see a reason why you shouldnt give up.

but thats just my 2 cents...

This happens to me as well, but I love the game too much to let that affect me.

I only started having this problem once Atlas of Worlds came out, if that helps at all.

Have you guys tried lowering your game settings?

generally speaking, my unexpected disconnections occur when trying to load and the game cant load properly fast enough.

Happened to me as well. Waaaaay too many unexpected dcs.
Switching to standalone somehow made them appear less. Weird.
Not to mention, you don't wait for 20 minutes for a 10MB patch.

I noticed that I still had the game on a disk drive instead of an SSD. Games been there for a long time. So far haven't crashed/disconnected and I have been playing for a few hours. This might be where the problem was but will have to go awhile longer before I call it settled. :)
