I've noticed my DC rate going from around 5% to over 20% in the last few days, my other online games don't have this problem. Any work arounds ?
My PC is only a few yrs old and works smooth with other games except this one, crashes happen just before planet drop and sometimes mid battle. Most annoying as I figured the game has been around long enough to be somewhat stable by now

First tis disconnects, then it is crashes? DC would either send you back to the client whereas crashing closes MWO complete with an error message.

And if it is actual DC, and if that is 5 games out of 100 to 1 game out of 5, that is a ton. I cannot remember the last time I dc in a game but it has been many months.

1 No mods installed?
2. ISP/State
3. Take note of which servers.
4. System configuration
5. Power Options, set to High Performance

Reboot Router/modem. Make sure computer heatsinks are cleared of dust buildup and fans are running properly.

Play in Full Windowed Mode and not Full Screen mode.

Reset Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS) settings

Navigate to the desktop. (From Home, tap or click the Desktop tile).

Right-click the Start button (the Windows logo in the lower-left)

Choose Command Prompt (Admin). Or Windows Key + R key and type in CMD

When asked whether to allow Command Prompt to make changes to your computer, select Yes.

Note: If you are asked for an administrative login, you will need to contact your system administrator.

Type "ipconfig /flushdns" and press Enter.
Type "ipconfig /registerdns" and press Enter.
Type "ipconfig /release" and press Enter.
Type "ipconfig /renew" and press Enter.
Type "netsh winsock reset" and press Enter.
Restart the computer.

Again, if actual DC and not a crash, also try a few different VPN. They both hide type of traffic, but most importantly could possibly reroute connection between your system and both the authorization server (log in/mechlab/etc) and each of the actual game servers.

Getting: Black Loading screen & Disconnect. So many splintered work around posts.
They seem to be failing me.

I tried this and got some luck but still too bad. Hurts games, giving it a break.

How many people has this turned away over the years? 2013-2020.

For the lack of a nail... business hurting architecture.(no one cares)
