The reason I'm asking this is some of the issues that my wife and I have been seeing lately concerning the game. First off, I can pretty much tell you that it's not a hardware issue. Both of us are running top of the line CPU/GPU's with plenty of memory, and a 200 mb/s internet connection. I'm retired, so I can play the game during various hours and days of the week. During the week in the morning or early afternoons, I never get kicked to the login screen. But as the evening and primetime gaming hours approach, so does the frequency of the game kicks for the both of us. This Saturday afternoon, during about one hour of play, I got kicked to the login screen about 5 times which is really unacceptable. Another sign I've seen, and others have started commenting about in the forum, is being put in a login queue. I had this happen to me the other day. Granted, it wasn't very long, but the fact it happened is another sign that ZOS servers are approaching their limits.
Recently we added Japan as a new additon of people able to play ESO, and also increased the load on the servers. So I feel that ZOS needs to think about adding a few more server boxes to their mega-server, because it sure doesn't feel very mega to me at the moment @ZOS_GinaBruno
, any plans on expanding your hardware soon? Any other thoughts on what might be causing the issues?
EDIT: Another reason to think that ZOS needs to look at their server farm is seeing messages like this posted about the same time I was having my login kicks:https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/281730/extreme-lag-in-cyrodiil#latest
There can be little doubt that the extreme crrodiil lag, login kicks, and login queues are all interrelated.
