I'm fed up of Network Connection Timeout errors. My internet connection isn't quick at 1MB/s, but it's not that slow that a game such as this should have a problem.
I've noticed that the longer the battle the more likely it is to happen. Is it doing the whole battle client side then trying to send the whole thing to the server? I'd like to suggest a few fixes.
1. The obvious one: increase - at least double - the timeout
2. Send the results first, then the whole thing. In the case of a timeout still apply the results but you won't be able to view a replay.
3. Send the battle so far every 10 secs so it doesn't have to send everything at the end.
I had the same problem in Wartide and it was part of the reason I stopped playing. I'm disappointed it hasn't been fixed for this. I spent some money on Wartide and probably would on this too, but there's no way I will while this problem persists.
I've lost numerous rewards from battles, both PvE and PvP and I expect I'll quit the game soon. It's a shame as it's one of the best games out there other than this issue, but this one thing spoils it.
