So far I have been unable to interact with anything 6 times and have to quite and restart, crashed to desktop 2 times, and been kicked back to log screen twice over the course of about 2-3 hours. It started last night when myself and 3 other people on my friends list got kicked and had to relog. We weren't grouped or even in the same areas but I noticed when I logged back in they were doing the same and when I asked they confirmed it happened to them too. and then I had the inability to interact twice so I just quit for the night since it was 2am anyway. Now today the problem seems to have continued on. No problems with any other programs or any other areas of my 'puter'. What gives, man?! I had had these problems occasionally in the past but they seem to happen more and more frequently since 1.6 - 2.0, roughly. I know others are having these problems, Ive seen the posts...just venting cause it feels kinda pointless to log back in to the game right now.

There is nothing here of interest to any nations; as a matter of fact, there is nothing here but people.

    But what about this one?

    This seems so split.
    I know these things can happen but there's got to be a connection between the people having it. My boyfriend gets DC'd maybe every hour or if he gets a long loading screen.
    I've never been DC'd but I guess every few hours I may creep onto a long loading screen that takes a little over a minute.

    Up until about two weeks ago, my gaming was mostly problem free. Occasional lockout/disconnect issues that were easily overlooked. But the last two weeks, and the last few days in particular, it has been painful.

    Problem is, doing something mundane like a crafting writ, no problems. Going after a boss in a dungeon or a quest line, just about guaranteed that it will lock up on me as I approach the boss, if not a mob along the way. Of course I come back to the game as a corpse when that happens.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    I too, have had the occasional black screen issue,( and of course lag), in the past.

    from 1.6 on though, it's been getting worse.

    After struggling with these issues, I lowered my graphics settings, lowered my Overclock,(Which every other app had no issues with, I'd like to point out.) CPU and GPU.

    Since the last patch 2.03, on the 30th, this issues have blossomed. While trying to play last night I received the black screen error three times in an hour. To remedy this once again, I lowered my GPU settings, I did not Overclock it at all.. It did seem to help; I played for the rest of the night without issues. I use Precision X to Overclock my card, but as of late, Tamriel Unlimited seems to not want to play nice with it.

    So what I now seem to think what is happening is that there is some type of Data flow restriction at the server end of things.

    When E.S.O. first came out, I had no problem in running Ultra High settings. I would never get any of these damn Black Screen of Death errors. But, over the last year and a bit, I have been forced to lower my graphic settings more and more just to be able to stay logged in. It seem the more data I am requesting from the servers the more chance I have of getting the client to crash.
