I have been playing Destiny for about 4 months now and have noticed that in the past couple of weeks that I am getting more and more 'Contacting Bungie Servers' errors whenever I try to do anything in game, also after 15 minutes the game will crash out with a 'centipede', 'bee', 'beetle' or 'weasel' error, when I try to get back in from the splash page I get 'marionberry' for a good 10 minutes before I can try again.
I was playing Challenge of elders about 2 hours ago, got to the 3rd boss after seeing the 'contacting bungie servers' messages and then literally just get booted out with a 'beetle' message, I dont seem to be lagging as I can revive members of the fireteam without any dramas.
In 4 months I havent had this many issues? My internet connection is 8Mbps down and 0.5Mbps up which is standard Aussie based ADSL2+ internet had no issues like I say up until 2 weeks ago.
I had my ISP out today to check everything out to make sure it wasnt that so I am at a loss now as literally can only blame the game. Has anyone else had these issues on the West coast of Aus or do I need to take my modem outside and run it over with my car?
Managed to borrow another modem, turns out my expensive netgear modem is actually causing the issue, line speed is fine on speed tests but connection latency is almost 1000ms on my modem compared to 63ms on the other one.
Means that I need a new modem. Would be nice if one of the error messages explained that my latency was too high though, the errors don't really tell you much and with such a spread of them it's hard to troubleshoot if the issue is at your end or Bungie's
