Case #1


Ok, I'm in a 3v3, my team is not winning but we are far from being runover. One of the other players drops with no warning. I'm excited, I'm like giving my dog high-fives. Then about 30 seconds later I get the drop screen and EVERYONE is on it, my 2 team-mates and the other teams 2 remaining players. So I wait till the timer gets to about 10 seconds and I drop them all. The "you are victorious" message pops up and one again I'm giving my dog high-fives. I then later log onto agecommunity to see I have been given a LOSE. How did this happen?


Case #2

Another 3v3, this time my team is winning, (about an hour into it). One of the other team players admits defeat and resigns, then out of no where I get OOS message. I'm pissed, I again log onto agecommunity and see I have been given a LOSE. How did this happen?

Unfortunately, it sounds like you're experiencing some connection problems in case #1. Case #2, it could just be a random unlucky incident, or there is the possibility that someone in the game deliberately induced the the out-of-sync. Hopefully you won't experience more out of sync problems, but watch for it if you do -- could be a sign of serious network trouble.
I'm excited, I'm like giving my dog high-fives.
I think you have inspired me to teach my dogs to high five. Surely a post-victory doggy high-five must be one of life's greatest joys.

I play on dialup, good dialup usually, but I used to get a couple of these a month, back in vanilla. You are playing TWC?

Dialup is where you use the internet via telephone line. You can't use the telephone while on dialup, and it laggs 5 to 10 times worse than DSL

Myth: The federal government pushed the telcos to make DSL available to all, since its the leading indicator of economic development. The cable companies followed suit.

Reality: Once the population density drops below 100 persons per square mile, you are SOL (not to be confused with AOL) for good internet connectivity.

Future Reality: EVDO?

Don'T laugh about dial=up connection, I used to play Age of kings on dial-up....

Second, I still have problems to believe Ender, a well known player on this forum really cheated, but anyway, he is a goner now.

Complete crap, happened again, 3v3, were winning, one guys resigns cause I'm owning him and then 30 seconds later OOS. My pest list is almost 60 deep now. ESO has got to figure out how in the hell these people are doing this. Don;t tell me my connection sux, or it was a fluke, it happens all to often and usualy when I'm playing 2LT or better with 70% or more win %. It just so happens this time I was playing against a guy called ****** 2LT with win% of 70%.

Well, that's exactly the reason why the problem must be you. Either that or you're just very, very unlucky... Maybe you should take a look at this topic; even though it's not really about OOS, there might be something there which will solve your problem.

Case 2 happens frequently on watermaps when someone is lagging after someone resigns.

Thanks to all those that signed the petition to get me unbanned here.
And special thanks to smashnbash for making it.
