Horrendously long load screens and disconnects?

    I would think this is from higher traffic loads on the servers, increasing the time it takes for Your PC to log you in from zone to zone. If it takes to long you will crash back to log on screen.

    Also experiencing this issue after patch, on EU server.
    I'm sure it's not a client-end problem, but rather server-end - too much people on servers probably?
    The game is still playable, but annoying anyway :|

    Yes the long loading screens for me almost everywhere and mostly in IC sewers any area. Some loading screens lasting about 1 minute 30 seconds or more. Hope they sort out soon :)

    EU server, every single loading screen are excessively long. Disabled addons and the same problem persists. FPS has also dropped from the usual 100 to around 70. Drivers are up to date.

    The way it happens is that you hang up waiting for the server to respond, then you get an answer, downloads something HD runs for a few seconds, then you wait another minute for the server to respond again and for a few seconds there is traffic and you wait another minute.....

    The server takes forever to respond to requests during zoning and often never answers.

    I'm getting really long load times too. I have a GeForce GTX970 with up-to-date driver. Don't know if Windows 10 is an issue here??? Also, don't know if this is related or not, but since the patch if I eat food to raise my health and stamina the bars for those 2 are on permanent display. They never go away - even when at 100%. They do disappear when the effect of the food runs out and health and stamina return to normal levels. I have sent an ingame /bug on this.

    Longer load screens are also happening to me. There were some patch notes related to improving the proper loading up stuff onto the client - I was hoping that this was related and the result would be less crashes

    Loading screens are certainly longer and I had one odd thing last night where the chat window stopped responding. Not like it does right before a disconnect but I couldn't click in it to talk and the enter key didn't work either.

    I miss all my lovely working addons too :( Especially whatever one it was that let me craft multiple items at once.

    Hey everyone,

    For the sake of troubleshooting this a little and trying to rule out a couple things, could those experiencing this issue make sure your video card drivers are up-to-date (there was a new driver for Nvidia Geforce 900 version cards released today), and ensure that your addons are disabled/removed? Being able to rule both those things out will help us narrow down what the cause of this issue may be.

    Thank you!

    Hello @ZOS_JessicaFolsom, I can verify also that long loading screens are occuring with updated video drivers and no Addons. Monday 8/31 I had no Addons and outdated Drivers and the loading screen times are exactly the same after updating video drivers on 9/1.

    No Add-ons
    All Drivers up to date

    Was affecting all the players I group play with.

    Average loading time 2-5min every time you use a wayshrine or logout/in

    On a positive note the infinite loading screen 15min+ doesn't happen anymore for me.
    one thing is fix but some dont like waiting 2-5 min everytime you use a wayshrine

    I've updated my drivers, disabled all my addons and I still get this problem. Loading screens are now 4-5X slower then they were before the update. And I've experienced multiple hangs soloing.. Just to be clear -- I'm calling 10 minutes at a loading screen that should take 10 seconds a hang even if you claim it will eventually work.

    I can't believe you never saw this in testing. It's hitting everyone I've talked to about this. I hear from guild mates and people in zone chat that this is making playing a nightmare.

    FIX THIS BUG, NOW!

    Same thing here. Ever since the update I am having huge load screens at almost all transition points that puts you into one! It was sooooooo bad last night myself and some guildies made a drinking game out of it.

    I was in a nice battle in Cyrodiil and then Boom like the Hammer of Thor. Disconnect crash to desktop. With Bill Gates telling me that ESO has stopped working. Oh well Thor won this round. Few shots of Whiskey spent some time with the wife discussed some "business" and Now I'm going to log in again and see how long it takes before the situation repeats.

    Yea so last night I got a disconnect and didnt have the heart to log back in. So left my toon in Deshaan.

    Spent 9 minutes trying to log in on a loading screen - Killed the client
    Spent another 3 minutes trying a second time, logged in Deshaan, then went to wayshrine to travel to belkarth to do my dailies.
    Spent another 4 minutes 13 seconds on THAT loading screen.

    So far ive spent more time on loading screens this morning then actually playing the game...

    My Drivers are up to date (radeon r9 280). The extreme loading times do also occur without addons enabled. Me and a guildmate of mine got disconnects in Atherian Archives yesterday. The sort of disconnect i usualy just know from cyrodil where everyone else stops moving. Both times on the last boss in hardmode to different times. My ping was fine.

    I have reached the point where I don't even want to play because of these damn screens. It shouldn't take me 45 minutes to do a simply mail run on all my toons, but it's taking a good 2-3 minutes for both log in and log out on ALL of them, and there are 8 to go through. Another guildmate has been trying to do a mail run for an hour at this point, has crashed 4 times, and has one toon that he can't even get to because it crashes every time he tries. ZOS, this is utterly ridiculous. Please, fix it.

    Because of this horrendous slow loading times and constant crashes I can't even do pledges until this becomes stable enough to play. Please fix this I want to play the game but I can't because of the random crashes which also affects the launcher from launching properly.

    I have excessively long loading on my main (VR15) character, all other characters have under 1 minute loading screens. I've disabled all addons on my main and kept them on my alts and still have these problems.

    Why isn't the entire forum community in this thread saying it's affecting them also?

    Is this only affecting a small portion of the community?
