95% of the time when I try to world hop, I get logged off with the "Malformed Login Packet" error, and I have to close my game and open it up again. Did what the support article said and reset chrome, then tried what others have recommended and switch to internet explorer then back to google chrome (I'm using windows 7). No luck.

If I just lobby and try to change worlds, about 90% of the time it will say "your game session has now ended."

Are you using a mobile network?
The combination of those two messages suggests you may be.

Mobile networks seems to vary your public facing IP address frequently. It seems to just be the way it works.
But the game uses your IP address as one of the parameters it defines the game session on - when that IP address changes, your session is invalidated and you will be logged out the next time it checks.
Some people get away with it; others simply can't play.

If you're using a mobile network, you may want to try an alternative network. Or possibly a VPN or such may help in a case like this. Depends on how they work. Wouldn't necessarily recommend a VPN or such if you can put up with it though, as they come with their own issues and risks.

I'm using a wired load balanced network so my IP address does change every minute or so. I can set it to static, but when I do that I don't really notice a difference. I'll give it a shot and see what the long term effect is though since network related stuff can be really finicky. Thanks <3
