Torrent could be a contributing factor, but for every person that doesn't use it or are not on a shared network, this just simply doesn't apply. I have had many disconnects before, but haven't played enough to really test to see if i still do, but this situation simply had nothing to do with the issues i've experienced. Logress mentioned something about players with "!" before and causing issues, but since the (2 i think it was) times they worked on it the stability of the game seemed to improve a bit from what i have experienced. I think since then, i have been kicked out of the game twice in 30ish games. Once was comcast's fault, the other i am uncertain.
