Are people then just quitting in midair deliberately, giving the appearance of a disco when in fact it was intentional?

Odds are they just suffer a warp from bad lag and by the time they reappear they are out of sight and you never reestablish contact.

I know if you land and dont hit "finish flight" but rather just leave the server or quit the game it counts as a disconnect....but I dnt think thats what we are talking about.

Oh...and it is 1200 unique users this month, yes. We usually get 1500 unique users on our server every month after a stats reset. Mind you, it was only 500 unique users this time last year...so new users are climbing rapidly....must be some of the media stuff going on. That and top 100 games of all time cant hurt. :P

Yeah I was one of the guys who had to wait in line to get on the server sunday. I guess that's a good problem to have!
As far as disconnects are concerned: for me they were much more prevalent 6 months ago and are now somewhat rare. Not coincidentally,
that is the same time my little area of Kentucky got a big upgrade in online bandwidth. I was fluctuating wildly from 10mps (what I pay for) all the way down to <1mps! After the upgrade I was fluctuationg at between 8 - 10 mps and the disconnects dropped right off.

ps Yes, as a matter of fact I was lodging near daily complaints with my ISP back then

It sounds like very little has changed in the MP arena since my last foray there about 1&1/2 years ago:

Reread the advice in that thread and try again in 6 months.

Why didn't I think of that?!?

It was so much fun back then, I can hardly wait to subject myself to the experience again!

Seems you can't get past your preconcieved notions Hedge.

...still bums me out that you don't enjoy MP. To each his own though...

But honestly, RoF-MP is nothing like it was 6 mos a year ago.

I played a few times on a server with icons and then took the plunge today on a full realism one. Really enjoyed myself. Have had no disconnection issues while playing on US servers.

I have done zero MP in RoF. Not likely to, either. I’m not angry or disappointed about it. It just doesn’t sound like my cup of tea for the following reasons:

Practice. How many time have I read people say “You must die 100 times before you can get anything done. “ or words to that effect. That doesn’t sound fun to me at all. I don’t have time to “practice” a game. I want to play the thing and do the missions. Getting sniped by folks who play MP a lot because I haven’t “paid my dues” is not appealing at all.

You must suffer but it’s worth it. Not for me. The prevailing story seems to be “Kills, while hard to get, feel great!”. Perhaps, but shooting down a human would mean no more to me than bagging an AI plane. I do not subscribe to the notion that “It is not enough that I succeed, others must fail”. It’s not like I down the AI controlled aircraft with the greatest of ease as it is. Those gunners are deadly!

Teamwork. This makes perfect sense. It is still problematic. I would be expected to play at certain times when acquaintances are flying. Not good. I want to play whenever I want. I don’t want to schedule the play time. This need to adhere to a schedule limits the time I could ever invest and we’ve already established that a lot of time is required to become proficient enough to get beyond the “suffering” phase. Ugh.

TrackIR. I don’t have it. Do you really need it? Is it a big advantage? Do you need two or three screens? This is not a whine. But if this equipment does convey significant advantages then folks without it need to know that the playing field is not level. What percentage of what might be called “accomplished” MP pilots use TrackIR? I’m just curious as I have no idea.

I’ll let others show up to be a target drone for folks who dig MP big time. I have no desire to do the whole “padawan” thing with an MP Jedi master. I do not have the endurance, determination and passion to put in the time. These three traits are indispensible from what I've read around the forum.

I bring these things up because there must be many others who eschew MP for the same reasons. This is why the career beta must continue to move forward.

To you all for whom MP lands right in your wheelhouse, good luck and have fun!
