    Dragon's gnaws through the server corpse?

    Something must be really odd with Darchenfels and it seems to be getting worse.
    For several weeks, the server tends to not safe the last half hour of gameplay before the shard goes down for reboot/maintenance @ 06:00 CET / 00:00 EST, although the announcement for finding a safe spot is absolutely on time.
    I also experienced the recall lags, which may take from seconds up to minutes for the server to fulfill the recall requests. This is for sure not due to a connection lag, I can move on and do stuff until I suddenly get teleported to requested destination.
    Last sunday evening, during an event, the server just simply crashed without any lags announcing a problem. People in General Chat afterwards assumed this was because 20 chars on one single boat crossed a server line.
    And for the last few days, I also had the aforementioned problem of not being able to log in. While waiting to log in, I once even got the "You have been idling for to long" screen as overlay over the connecting screen...

    @Kyronix , please, Drachenfels really needs some Dev love now...

    Where are you trying to recall when you experience recall lag? Are you experiencing the recall lag after the "Server going down..." message?

    Where is DRF's server and honestly with everything going on in the world right now I am surprised that there isn't more lag.

    Looking at DRF and EUR from west coast USA and both shards are taking constant packet losses.

    When recall problem happen you can't travel across serverlines / facets .. can be anywhere to any where else same time you are unable to log in to drach. once recalls work again people can also log in.. they are connected somehow, god knows how

    It does not appear to be on a particular special "route". I often experience it from Skara Brae Bank Trammel (w1, x601, y2147, z0) to the very north-east tip of the Trammel main land (w1, x3451, y136, z0), as this is my "going home route" which I recall very frequently.
    After the recall request, I sometimes have enough time to open the bank safe again, reorganize my stuff a bit, and wait for the recall success.
    This can happen at any time during the regular playing hours; I don't remember it occurring after the "server down in two minutes" message.
    If this would be helpful, I can collect the exact times and "routes" on which the recall lag is occurring.

    Yesterday a group of us was even completly frozen in Destard Fel, while doing the champ spawn. Well the whole subserver was frozen, cause the monsters were frozen as well and after like 15-20 mins everything continued. In alliance and general chat, we heard others could move but not recall anywhere during that time.

    Kyronix, it has been happening quite a bit lately. The server does not save for about 20-30 minutes BEFORE the server down message comes up. and lately every day and more than once, the server lags so bad that you cannot recall, during this time you can also not log in to the server. Each time it lasts for 5-15 minutes. However, you can talk in general chat, even though you cant move. It has been a pain these last few days and seems to be getting worse.

    Yesterday was a period of almost an hour where the server lagged so badly you could not cross server lines. There has been a time before where my entire guild was in a teamspeak client waiting like an eBay sniper to log in. This has only ever been happening since the Time of Legends expansion, if anyone else hadnt already mentioned that. It's becoming increasingly frustrating, especially since I play multiple shards and DF is the only one that seems to be affected.

    Yes Caitlyn you are right. Has only happened since expansion, and has not seemed to have affected any other shards.

    I can understand even if it does not get fixed right away, but some type of confirmation that the issue is being heard would be nice. Its more frustrating when the problem just keeps rampaging on for almost two months now.

    The recall delay happens also before the new expansion. I got it several times when recalling from ship after crossing the server boundary. We had done a corgul in this case.

    This animations comes from the client itself. When your client goes in frozen state, means probably disconnect from server, it will still animate other objects.

    Has anyone tried doing a trace and poll with uotrace to see if there's a bottleneck somewhere on the route to the server?

    Just happened again and did a traceroute poll from when it was not working till after it started working, no difference in result, no loss in either (except hops that had 100% loss from prolly blocking ping port).
