Disconnect, disconnect and ... disconnect

I'm on the Europe server - PS4 - PVE - Ebonhart - Stonefalls.
Since i started playing today, I get disconnected every 20 à 30 minutes. And then I get that super annoying message "... please make sure uou have a valid internet connection."

It's like the more/faster you fight, the more likely you'll get disconnected. As if the server can't keep up with all the changes it must process server-side.
There is something fundamental wrong in the server-coding of this game. I understand there are many complex variables in this game, but why must all those variables be server-side and not client-side ?

    This message has been moved to the PS4 tech-forum. Why? As I firmly believe this is not a specific PS4, but a more general issue. I played this game on a PC, and there I had the same problems (not as frequent, but it happened anyway).

    Same issue on xbox and no, the steps listed on all of these support forums are not helpful. New messages say there is an internal service issue on ZOS's end instead of blaming it on my internet. So step in the right direction at least.

    @ZOS_RyanM disagree with this getting moved here. There's a broader general issue. Maybe if there was an overarching console tech support page that then fed into these more specific pages?

    Disconnects can also be a wireless issue too. What does your internet situation look like? How far away is the device from the router?

    I never have any of these issues-- though I run a ethernet cable into my PS4 since my router is right there.

    I don't have this disconnect problems with other mmorpg games. So it's definitly not just a PS4 problem.

    But, well, I imagine the thruth about this will never be admitted. To bad, because I admire honesty and not denial.

    I have a very nice internet package with tons of speed and reliability. Console sits right beside my router. I'll get disconnects every 5 minutes and then give up and play Overwatch flawlessly for hours. Yep, totally an internet problem.

    Sarcasm dully noted. Since ya'll seem to have this issue under wraps, I will excuse myself from the thread.

    Cheers mates.

    I'm UK based with 100Mb cable and timed my disconnects - Happens every time at the 19 minute mark without fail.

    Seriously grinding my gears !

    I play BDO and EQ2 with zero problems...
