The Elder Scrolls Online has server instability for 8 years, they have a way more agressive monetization than Lost Ark and there is zero downtime compensation for paying customers. It has only been until recent few patches that people got enough and leave in hordes.
The gaming industry became lazy, because they get away with releasing unfinished AAA games (e.g. Cyberpunk), re-releasing the same reskinned slot machine every year (e.g. FIFA), fully monetizing early access products and cutting base game content to sell as seperate DLCs. MMOs are no exception to this. The truth is companies will get away with this, because the customers changed and accepted a subpar quality standard long ago. There are always people paying, no matter how hard they get bend over by game devs.
So yeah its not extreme. Its disappointing, but no surprise. Just a regular occurance.
But playing game that constantly disconnects you in middle off the raids, chaos dungeons, events (chaos gates, boss rush, ghost ship etc.) is no fun at all, then why do i play this game if im gonna get dced while having fun/enjoying myself with no compensation provided & losing that entry? The fact that this issue has been going on for a long time and no actual fix/ estimated time window has been provided by the developers/engineers is amusingly funny/embarrassing when brel is going to be released within the next 2 week window - is brel update really going to happen ? & if that happens is the dc issue still ongoing would the players enjoy/complain more about this game ? I assume there will major issues if they cannot simply fix a dc problem ! I think you need REAL ENGINEERS/REAL TEAMS working on the issues not the ones who throws the problem to the next person !!! I understand that there are difficulties overcoming some of the problems but it shouldn’t take this long to resolve an ongoing issue or communicate this major problem to the players !!

Okay so i followed the steps to “fix” the eac issue via this link: Addressing the recent EAC Issue
and somehow it has gotten 100x worse, before I dc one in every few hours if not at all. Now I dc/EAC crash/Full crash/error code crash every 5 mins, I talk to npc i crash, i portal to docks i crash, try and select my Una’s I crash. try and do Guardians i freeze in loading screen then crash, i go into chaos i crash when i try and portal to the next area. What did you guys do? Next time I won’t try and update or do anything because this is madness.
This 100%. My teams work 24/7 to fix any substantial connexion issues on our prod environments. I can’t fathom how a trillion dollar company can let such a critical issue slide over the course of several sprints without any fix or immediate escalation whatsoever. This is beyond understanding.
There definitely seem to be some differences. I get maybe 1 - 3 random disconnects in my daily 5 char rotation, while others report them way more frequently. It´s weird indeed, but shouldnt take as long to find out as it currently does. Everything points towards a certain patch, so whatever they shipped there caused the issue.
And if people are still buying stuff from the store and playing without issue then the problem isn’t as “widespread to everyone” as others think
Nah people buying from the store is just people being dumb and supporting the subpar industry standard of bad quality control and slow work ethics. Happens since years. The issue is indeed widespread and got frequently reported across all regions of the western version. e.g. today I was one of four people who got disconnected during Valtan G2 execute phase with 10 bars left. The other people finished instead of waiting and restarting. We 4 all got locked out of the loot.
I see, well i shouldn’t have done anything then because it has made it unplayable, in the last 30 mins crashed 5 times with eac offline message/spelt message/full crash.
I did everything, i repaired a few times, verify and repair, full uninstall and reinstall, now i just need to do a full reinstall of the game and steam too because i can’t even log into anything character w/o it crashing completely.
