I have had this issue several times the last couple of days, game just shows 'please wait' ring for no obvious reason. On tcp game shows me 200-300ms latency (ping command only shows 46ms) .I tried udp , that did show good ping but then I got latentcy spikes in the game (up to red 9999ms).
So now I was using pingplotter in the background to track my connection to the server. The connection is fine, no dropped packets, average 46ms latency, but still the game showed me the ring while putting my fish in the keepnet. I waited 2-3 maybe 4 minutes -nothing happened- just my other rod spooling in the background, so i had to alt-f4. It also happened while making pva's, then it did recover after some minutes, but i could not make pva anymore. (error: value cannot be null and some Russian text) sorf4game so I had to relog for that too.
Before last patch i only sporadically had issues, and then it was always easy to pinpoint them either en-route or the server was down, but now that's not the case. I hope you can use my info to find the problem.
