I'm having no problems whatsoever with autopathing or all night AFK horseriding. I only have issues (not always and not stop but disconnect) when minimising to tray very soon after starting the AFK riding.

Are you on a 1 channel Like Velia 1, Calpheon 1, Balenos 1, Serendia 1, Mediah 1?

Have you tried on 2s?

When I'm in Serendia 1 I always see people standing off their horse or wagon standing there for hours in the middle of Heidel. And when I try to autopath in that channel, it always delete my path and my horse end standing there all day. In Serendia 2 I very rarely see that and I can auto path all day without interruption.

Cat, the suggestions of switching to a #2 channel and keeping the world map up during the duration of auto pathing is worth a try until the issue is resolved. I did this today and I was able to stay connected without disconnecting.

You can change channels all you want. Its intermittent and therefore difficult to diagnose I assume. However, we must get the Customer Service people to listen first. 

At this point they do not even respond to requests for help. 

In an effort to "work through it". I've lost a total of 23 hours AFK horse training time in 5 days. Very frustrating, but I am looking for another game to play.

Get decent internet and connect your pc with a cable not wireless. No problems here.

Pretty sure they can't really do anything without drastically improving their network; or moving servers for that matter.  The issues is the loading screen interrupting the autopath which is caused by desyncing with the server too often.  Plenty of people reported on it across various ISPs and connection strength and not everybody has it as well.  Last I seen on it was certain ISPs were having issues with BD's servers or something similar.  So if your route goes through them, you have issues.

Latest response from that thread.  June 17th is when it started to happen to a large amount of players:

 

"Yes, I'm aware of this and it is what I am addressing with PA. However, as of now I haven't heard any feedback on it yet.

I know very well how frustrating this is for you all, but it is entirely possible that the "fix" that happened on June 17th cannot be reverted. I hope we are able to find a solution that fixes both your current problem, as well as the problem which was fixed during this patch.

Best regards,
GM Dew"

Agreed. I have 0 faith in this companies ability to fix these issues. They don't seem to mind loosing a few hundred/thousand players to make an extra dollar... so why fix this issue? Maybe Ill be pleasantly surprised.

I was having less issues since the patch from 2 weeks ago, which was a server stability patch. i am able to afk fine in the day. but still get disconnected constantly during the night... unless they fix it, it means back to afk fishing at night and horsing in the day :(

I was having issues up to around mid-June. Then I switched my location and they have mostly gone away.  No changes in internet connection and my computer is wired.  So it's not a connection issue.

I went from perfect playing conditions, afk day and night anything I want to this super lag spike go to map and come back dying crap and not being able to afk anything for more  than 20 minutes.

I don't want to hear from the people thousands of miles away in Bora Bora who can play and afk all day no problems. Just be glad you can. You're not helping. I am not going to consider the problem is my computer.

If you notice, there isn't really any feedback or acknowledgement from the game on this problem. So obviously they have a problem and won't talk about it. Seen it before.

My guesses are something with isps or non-nvidia compatibility. Seems like friends with nvidia cards are not having problems.
