I wonder if their countermeasure is an auto kick and it's not properly logging people out?

Could be more likely that it is duty finder not communicating to the world server that the player has left duty finder (since that is where they made the most confirmed changes that could create the problem).

We will see, I logged in and went to work and left myself in my inn room. I will check at lunch to see if I am still in. That will confirm or deny an afk kick, I am certain. If it is implemented, that is ok by me, as long as it is in place for everyone. The Lodestone says that I am still logged in and i has been nearly 3 hours. I don't know how often Lodestone updates though...

If you go to your page and click on your Free Company and select "members" and go to your name, you will have a little connection icon to the left of your name. If this icon is glowing, then you are online. If it is not glowing, then you are off line. The same may go for if you select your linkshell and browse members, but it is easier for me to get to the free company link.

Technically, it's only a hotfix if the servers aren't taken down. The "hot" part means the electricity is still flowing. Otherwise, it's just a patch.

I know it's just nitpicking, but it's there's a vanishing legacy of fixing problems without service interuption in a world where rebooting is the only way out of your closed system failure.

So I did the same thing. And it seems I'm still logged in which I don't understand if they did a hot fix after the time I logged in.

To update Wint, I believe that they fixed the issue that was server side, but I went back at lunch and checked and my character is still sitting the inn and connected, so I do not believe they have instituted an afk kick with this patch.

I don't think that everything they have done since beta has required a reboot of the world activity. The fix was probably located on a duty finder server, or a server that is dedicated to other functions.

I think the last think they need to do in put in an afk kick. Just imagine the backlash should it NOT work as intended(9000+1)? Kicking people just because!

I logged in once this morning and logged back out immediately. Lodestone is showing me with a glowing icon. Maybe that means I'll get hit with the 3102 until I reboot my router. ^.^;

well whatever they did it seems to have worked on solving the connection issues.

Logged on one try, with a 1 person queue.

Had to log out because my keyboard driver thing crashed and I lose my bound special keyboard keys (actually razer synapse crashed and my mouse buttons were messed up too) so I had to restart.

Logged back in no issue no queue.

So are people still having issues or did they fix everything here?

From my experience, there is a significant lag in the Lodestone updating the character status.

Yeah, I highly doubt it refreshes in real time. That would be a serious waste of resources for something so trivial. Most likely it refreshes periodically. I highly doubt its original intent of that icon was to check for server bugs :P
