Best you guys who play this game give the Mod (Stuart) a couple of days to sort things out. He has picked up the thread so just have a little patience and I'm sure he will sort it if at all possible.
snow please note what the poster from rift has said
This is not a BT problem.. It is a Trion issue which they have now admitted.
also the board mods have responded please give them time to investigate the issue
It is a BT issue as much as a Trion issue John46.
The fact that Trion are the first to propose a work around does not mean it is their fault. They changed the game to a new port range. They did it because other ISP's were suffering the same issue we're suffering now. They changed the range, and it stopped the other people from being affected, but in return the problem started to affect BT customers.
Other ISP's can play the game fine, whilst BT customers cannot play the game between 4pm-Midnight as the throttling kicks in. BT are currently limiting their customers from playing a video game, not a P2P service - so BT are also in the wrong. The data that is being sent and received from Trion is the same as what would be received from Xbox Live when you're in a Call of Duty match. Your space in the game world, other peoples actions, etc. Nothing extra is being sent or received to indicate it is P2P, it's merely the port being used. Trion can change the port, but BT could also be less stringent and properly identify applications for what they are.
