Constant disconnects.

I'm getting constant disconnects. Before Summerset the game ran fine, but after it's launch I've been having nothing but random DC's plagueing my play time. The only reliable catalyst for them seems to be zone transitions, but something as random as learning a style motif can do it as well. Anyone else having these problems, and how can I solve them?

    If you are running into constant disconnections while playing, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:

    Check Service Alerts

    Verify the servers are not undergoing scheduled maintenance here.


    Power cycle and then test your network

    If playing on console, you can reset your machine's IP by performing a hard reset. To do so, hold down the power button on the console itself and allow it to completely shut down. Once complete, turn off your modem or router as well and wait 10 minutes before turning all of your devices back on.

    If playing on PC/Mac, you should also try turning off your modem or router for 10 minutes before rebooting.


    Forward the game ports

    To best access The Elder Scrolls Online you should configure you routers to open the following outbound ports:

    All Platforms

    TCP / UDP Ports 24100 through 24131
    TCP / UDP Ports 24500 through 24507
    TCP / UDP Ports 24300 through 24331
    TCP Port 80
    TCP Port 433


    Check for updates

    You should also ensure that the ESO Launcher has downloaded and installed all available updates before logging back in. If on console, we also recommend completely closing out the game and allowing the system to check for game updates before restarting the game itself.


    Give ESO and Steam access to Mac

    If playing ESO on Mac, you should ensure that both Steam and ESO have access to your machine by navigating to the Security & Privacy menu, selecting Privacy, then clicking on Accessibility and adding them to the list.


    Reset the ProgramData folder

    If playing on PC, you can also try resetting the ProgramData folder:
    1. Close both ESO and the ESO Launcher.
    2. Open the game's installation directory.
    3. Open the folder named Launcher.
    4. Inside the "Launcher" folder, there is a folder named "ProgramData".
    5. Rename the "ProgramData" folder to "ProgramDataBackup".
    6. Open the launcher and download update.
    7. Click Play.

    If none of these steps improve the situation, you can also open a ticket with customer support.

    Been getting kicked out of the game just doing writs today... Got gig fiber and other online and mmo games work perfect. Just this one is borked always.

    Started for me around the same time as your post, too. Clearly not an issue on the player's side, so I don't know why they give us a long to do list when it's a server issue.

    For PC: I had in the past the same issue. Disconnects each 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8--9-10 minutes. Only in PVE when harvesting resources and after opening chests.

    Found this in other thread. After changing my settings to this the game works fine for me. No Disconnects.

    Ps: dont forget to make the file read-only after your changes.

The freezes are definitely coming from the "WorkerThreads" line, as setting it to 0 removes them entirely, but at the loss of a little fps in general, while setting them to 8 turns the entire game into a near constant slideshow. With the settings below I have managed to completely remove all the freezes and stutters, in Alinor and everywhere else. Framerate now seems to be about the same as pre-patch. Smooth as silk. Maybe give these a try until they get a proper fix in.

    SET MaxCoresToUse.4 "8" (if you have a quad core hyperthreading cpu, if not use "4")
    SET RequestedNumJobThreads "4"
    SET RequestedNumWorkerThreads "1"

    Also, setting GPUSmoothingFrames to "0" or "1" can be very helpful with general smoothness and microstutters, as well as input lag and responsiveness if you have a high end GPU. "0" is best if you can get away with it.

    I need to test this on my game and see if it works too but am I wrong in saying that we shouldn't have to go through all this crap? That they should just admit that there is a problem and fix it?

    He is bluffing. ZOs needs to fix the issue. Issue is with server side.

    here I was able to solve the problem of disconnecting randomly by putting the game in full screen mode
    I played before in full window mode and never imagined that this was causing a problem
    it seems like this started to happen after summerset

    so try to play full screen and make sure that no firewall is blocking something (turn off your windows firewall and your router firewall)

    if nothing changes, try testing without any addon !!

    50% chance to crash on joining a dungeon. Usually resulting in being locked out of the queue for 15m.
    always crashes at the end of a dungeon.

    First time i've ever regretted subscribing to this game.

    UPDATE: Disabling all add ons appears to have reduced the crashes.

    This is happening a lot to me too. Seems like every 15 minutes or so, roughly. Very obnoxious. It just started recently as well, though I'm not sure how recently, as I haven't been actively playing a lot the last month until the last few days.

    Game is broken and ZOs have no clue . Surely ESO+ is going to get reduced and players will leave eventually if not fixed.

    Tried some of the fixes. Seemed to help with the disconnects for half an hour. Then it was back to the same. I'm also now lagging like crazy. They've REALLY got to fix this ASAP.

    Please.

    To me, the measure of a man is whether or not he fights for his principles. It does not matter if you never had a chance to begin with. The deck could be stacked, the game rigged against you. You fight to the bitter end, because it is worth fighting for.

    Are they seriously saying the Laptop is the cause? Because I'm on a desktop and this is geting ridiculous.
