I just asked a question if this is exlusive to company, because I play hundreds of different games hence I mentioned my steam library. It's not a brag. So I don't know why you feel "attacked" and act like a snowflake.
I can finish a skirmish game and I have already said that this issue occurs in multiplayer.
And thanks for offering help, but I never said "yeah well DUHHH" or mentioned anything about my router/network card prices I just expressed that I find it odd that these issues happen considering the circumstances and that if its a just a connection stability issue how come other games don't disconnect? Much older games like: command and conquer tiberium wars or supreme commander forged alliance that also don't have reconnect features. yet don't boot me from the game.
Maybe it could be a router setting that changed or something with outbound/inbound rules.
But thats why I asked, so I could get recommendations on troubleshooting.
Nobody is attacked, just that if you ask a question and then doubt the validity... sure. C&C network part of the engine was probably not written by a dev team in a rush.
If you can play a full skirmish game then you can rule out pretty much everything except the:
1) Router (settings; could be)
2) Modem (unless you have a router/modem combo like me; highly unlikely)
3) Network card (extremely unlikely)
4) Windows settings (eh, unlikely)
5) COH2 settings (likely)
First I would check the router settings: Default Gateway is usually 192.168.0.1 (you write it where you would usually write "https://www.google.com", in the address bar). You can check the address in the command prompt (cmd.exe) with ipconfig.
You can google your password. It's either written somewhere on the router, or in the manual, or on the contract with the ISP. Most likely it's something like Username: user or admin or Admin or Administrator..... you get the jist... and the password is: password or admin or Admin....
You can google for your router. Most routers have default username/password.
Check the settings there. Now I don't know how your router looks like or what it is or what it supports, but you can google 99% of the settings and their meaning. See if anything stands out and add COH2 to the list of exceptions and open the TCP ports: https://support.sega.com/hc/en-us/articles/201555252-Network-Connection-Troubleshooting-
Modem: Can't really check
Network card: Update drivers
Windows settings: Way too big of a topic. Impossible to cover everything and would take me hours of typing. Normally windows autocorrects itself sooner or later if the settings get screwed up. The "Holy Grail" of repairing windows files is into administrator cmd.exe:
1) dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
After you click enter and the process completes:
2) sfc /scannow
COH2 settings: Delete the \Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes 2 folder multiple times if needed.
My opinion: Either firewall or router or antivirus for some reason started blocking COH2, or one of it's files. Only God knows.
You could also check the Event viewer for any warnings/errors. When you get kicked out (Try playing automatch vs AI to not lose ranks or just a custom game), open the Event viewer and see if "Application" or "System" have recorded any event of blocking anything.
