(FIXED) constant disconnect problems
Greetings,

I decided to try POE after watching some YouTube videos of the gameplay. After I installed it and created a character I jumped into the game. Then the problems started. I could not play more than 5 minutes without being discoed. While I was playing it was laggy and freezing. I read a post today from another player related to disconnects. Somebody replied and suggested he try switching to DX9 in the options menu. I decided to give it a try. Nothing to lose since it was unplayable for me.

I changed from DX11 to DX9 in the options menu, restarted and I played for about 90 minutes. I saw smooth gameplay and no disconnects.

Yeah no fixes has worked for me, no clue why. I get latency flatlines for 2 secs-10 minutes(the longest I stayed around to find out).
I would say server issue, but I've tried other servers and same stuff happens. I've found no constant pattern, sometimes game works fine with 60k people playing then ♥♥♥♥♥ itself with 30k.

No, it isn't my internet as everything else runs fine. I've played normally while watching a stream on the same pc.

Doesn't Work for me Cant Leave Lioneyes or Do the Zones everytime Unwanted Disconnection in the Middle of it. Also It Crashes and i m Running it on Lowest Graphics Possible and on DX9 and yes my GPU drivers are updated. No fix for me Atleast. I guess GGG doesnt care for older PC's anymore and i dont have money for new stuff. I know for a fact before the Oriath patch i did played hours and hours without any Crash on highest graphics. I guess i just have to Quit forever till some one gifts me a gamer pc or i Die.

It was fixed for a day or two when they first updated it, and at the start of 3.0. But now I can't do anything. Game loads me in, drops me when I try to load anywhere else. It is completely unplayable in its current state.
