Since Trion changed the ports the game uses in beta 7, the game now uses ones that a certain (sh*te) ISP called BT throttles during peak times.

This means untill Trion decide to use different ports BT customers will be unable to play between the times of 7pm and 11pm. I am yet to find out for sure if it will work again after 11, but I will know in half an hour.


Trion are aware of the issue and are working on it.

So thats BT and Virgin users that cant play Rift, Might as well cancel UK release.

FYI it's not the ISP at fault its purely Trion never had any issues with any other game.

i don't think ping is such an issue in mmos tbh, also most of the awesome pvp may happen in the wee early hours ;)

Well the last Beta Virgin Users were being disconnected because they saw Rift as being Peer2Peer which they dont allow during peak hours.

Yep at 11pm I magically went down to 47ms which is damn nice for an mmo. Before 11 i was at about 120k ms which was utterly unplayable.
