This is an issue I've never had any trouble with before; I lose connection for a minute or so (can't input anything, yet I am still looking at the game world), then it reconnects for a little bit. The issue seems to get better over time. That is, the longer I endure it, the less problematic it becomes. I still get the "Lost Connection to Chat Server/Reconnecting to Chat Server" messages, but it does not seem to impede game play -after an hour or so.
I get: "Your connection with the Chat server has been lost"
then after like 30 seconds to a minute (during which time some monster has thrashed me): "Your connection with the Chat server has been reestablished."
It seems that if it was a port/firewall issue, I'd not be able to connect at all.
I can't believe I'm the only one this is happening to.
Any help appreciated.
