Well, after 2 elite attempts at Shroud tonight and a lot of resources used to a fail both times we give up. The lag on Orien is getting way out of hand. It was happening on and off before U9 so I can't blame that. my frame rates and latencies are fine (within norms). I know for a fact it has ntohing to do withjust me as everyone out of the 12 in my party were having the same massive stutter step lag. Decided tot try just a normal 6 man quest with some better luck but raiding on Orien (which I assume is the same elsewhere) is just not a viable option with the way the server seems to be acting.
When lag gets this bad I often wonder why I am paying for the game and have been for 3 years now. I know though it is affecting all. I just hope something can be decided quickly to fix these issues or why am I paying to play a game that I have no desire to play anymore, atleast in its current state.
