Problems with BT internet and New MMO game - RIFT

Basically everyone whos with BT internet are getting huge latency (On both US and EU servers) on the new MMO game RIFT.

 

Apparently BT are falsely Port throttling the game ports assuming its a P2P application for some reason.

 

Heres a link to the discussion on RIFTS tech support forums...

Hopefully we can get this sorted asap 😄

Rift and ports restricted by BT Broadband

I have been playing the closed Beta of Rift with no issues. However, the latest beta launched today has seen the latency of 40k and higher for other BT users.

It would seem that Trion have changed the ports to 6000-6020 which are deemed as ports used by p2p and restricted. Is there any chance of BT and Trion getting this sorted as the game is unplayable now. Not BT's fault I know but need this sorted.

Re: Rift and ports restricted by BT Broadband

I am also having problems playing the game Rift.

It would be very nice if BT would investigate this and contact Trion Rift game, and work out a solution so that us BT internet users could actually play the game.

Thanks in advance

Re: Problems with BT internet and New MMO game - RIFT

I'm also having this issue.  

 

The company that supplies Rift, Trion Worlds, has recently changed its ports. This has caused problems for BT internet customers ONLY.

 

From what can be read on the forum at least, no complains have been made about users from other ISP networks.

 

Please remove the restrictions on Rift so that BT internet users can continue with normal service.

Exactly same problem. BT was fine previous 6 betas, now completely unplayable. There are already 4 pages or replies from BT ISP users in this thread also.
