-I have only ever hosted games, so I can confirm that this bug happens to the host. I have no idea if it happens to clients.
-This has happened to me at multiple level ranges, spanning between levels 8 and 32.
-I think the bug has only taken effect with me upon zoning into a new area.
Can folks verify that this issue is still happening with the latest patch?
I just came to the forum because I was dying very fast with my friend engineer, and i found this. Its happen to me, i'm just lvl 30, we start playing 1 week ago. in elite.
I have had this problem happened also. I believe it is either a bug, or lost packet due to de-sync or port being blocked by firewall.
Just speculations though.
(This is, of course, assuming that the "ideal" ratio would be 1:1. If not, well... my theory is probably wrong - but at least the results are a start).
(We deliberately increased our network traffic significantly after the first test, in an attempt to "encourage" more packet loss and hopefully make the bug appear sooner, and were successful. The final test resulted in the bug appearing at approximate sent/received values of 68,500/51,400 respectively).
Also, how did you increase network traffic to encourage more packet loss?

... but if you can enable EXTRALOGGING...
Is it normal to experience such significantly- and consistently-different results based--seemingly--on whether or not an embermage is present in the game? That was what really caught my attention.
Do you find the connection to the embermage to be consistently sending way more or way less than it's receiving?
