Requesting character load

Soul Shriven
Hello, I'm having a lot of problems trying to log into any character because of the dreadful "Requesting character load" message. About 1 time out of 10 or 20 (I really don't want to keep count) I can log into a character, only to be thrown back to the main menu with the helpful "Error, try again later" message whenever I hit a load screen. But once I'm in the game, everything works perfectly (besides the not moving from the zone). I tried countless solutions (deleted SavedVariables file, allow exception/disable firewall, open ports, modified hosts file to use many different IPs, etc.). The only thing that appears to have an effect is lowering the graphics to a minimum before a loading screen, but it almost never works. Support asked me to contact my ISP and then stopped answering when I provided evidence that it's not a connection issue (at least not on my side). Is there any standarized solution for the "Requesting character load" message or the kicked back to the main menu when loading screen issues?

    Hello @ZOS_MollyH , my ticket number is 150725-003649. Thanks for your help! As I said in a previous post and informed in the ticket, I've since then tried using battleping with immediate success for both issues. However I don't really consider it a solution because I need to pay a monthly fee to use the game.
