Windows 8 skype Call drops

Whenever I'm in a call and it seems to always be when i'm in deep conversation or while playing league of legends or actually just whenever it wants, my skype call wil just drop. It will just drop my call even in a group chat mine will just drop and everyone else is still talking. To be completely honest, this is the worst "upgrade" (really a degrade) to skype I have ever seen. Windows 8 is awful and now skype is even worse, please change it back to Windows 7 style where I can just access it from the desktop. Also if you know how to fix the dropped calls problem plesae help.

Re: Windows 8 skype Call drops

You can't run modern Skype and League of Legends simultaneously. Port 80 must be forwarded for modern Skype app to operate properly. LoL uses the same port.


You can install Skype desktop client


and Uncheck "use port 80 and 443.....incoming connections" in Skype advanced connection settings.

Re: Windows 8 skype Call drops

So I am having the same problem as well. Whenver i play games while in call on modern skype not the window 8 one, it would at random times drop me then reconnect me back. So how can i prevent that from happeneing? Not to mention i tried using Windows 8 skype too and it does the same thing.
