Guild Wars 2 traffic not categorised as gaming‽

I've been playing GW2 since release.  Bizarrely though, my usage page for the month 22/10/12 - 22/11/12 shows gaming as 0% of my overall bandwidth usage even though I've put in God knows how many hours on the game in that time period.

Get the odd bit of lag now and then, but I put that down to ANet's idiotic use of server locations more than anything.  I just thought it weird that it wasn't showing up under gaming usage.

Well, it means that we probably aren't identifying it correctly.    However, the lack of serious problems means it's probably being identified as something in Gold or Titanium.

Re: Guild Wars 2 traffic not categorised as gaming‽

Hi, was wondering if plusnet has added gw2 to gaming traffic to their list yet.
Was having bizarre connection problems which disconnects my router from the internet and I of course blames my own hardware or even plusnet for that matter but then I came across this thread on gw2's forum https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/support/tech/Guild-wars-is-disconnecting-my-internet which shows that a lot of other players around the world is having the issue where gw2 disconnects their internet connection on the router level.
So yes, there is some sort of serious problems here, will post more details if you needs it.
