The last few weeks, I've been noticing the same recurring issue with zoning. You sit in zone lag "hell" and finally, when the screen does load, you're at Character Selection with 4 characters (I have about 15 total), shows "Maj'dul Down," and then Maj'dul shows "up." You pick a character and then it tells you to exit the game and run the patcher. I've run the patcher more times than I can count and there's nothing wrong with files. It appears there's something screwy happening with zoning lag, the hamsters all pass out from the effort, and so forth. This happens consistently throughout the week, even in 'off' times as opposed to Friday nite through Sunday with peak populations.
