I’m going to be straight forward vague and off the wall guessing here. I don’t know what, but something has greatly sent lag into play all over since the last big patch.
I run on a pretty decent setup on FIOS and all of 10 miles from the servers. You basically couldn’t ask for a better connection and setup for the game. I can’t escape it lately. I mean, I don’t remember a time when the lag was this bad. It’s in everything. Scenarios, city, ORvR. You just can’t escape it. I had a city instance on Sunday night that was only comparable to the old Fortress battles we had before the pop levels were added in. That whole 1 frame per minute, hit an ability and hope for the best. 24 vs 24 was causing that kind of lag? What is the instances for Gorfang City played on the Badlands Server for Praag ORvR?
And now that’s all I hear in vent. Lag, Lag, and Fucking Lag.
I don’t know what happened. I find it hard to believe the patch did this. I’m wondering what kind of server downgrades or consolidation took place recently. I think a fast fix is need before many of us find something else to do. I know I was heavily considering it after a very very frustrating city experience.
