If you're logging into a western US shard, sprintnet (not EA's fault) appears to have had a router farm go down HARD about 4 hours ago in Stockton, which is just upstream from Sprint's San Jose facility, then EA's . IIRC, the login servers are on the west coast too. How bad was it? Sprint's servers were causing about 50-75% packet loss every step from Stockton to EA. I was practically frozen when it happened, and it was so bad, It took me 6 attempts and about 10 minutes to get through the front door of my house. In fact, the problem was so bad that Sprint's OWN web page for pinging a router location couldn't even ping the site! IT currently looks like those routers are offline, and that a smaller set of routers through Stockton are handling a much higher load than they are supposed to, as the ping times on UOTrace are 2-3 times longer from Stockton to SJ to Redwood, and it's not the same Stockton router ID I was getting prior to the issues.
