May 16 10pm eastern on Orien: 8 of us enter epic Zawabi's Revenge. Two minutes later we recall out. With the intense lag, it took us that long to kill the first pack of mephits and efreetis. There was 4-5 seconds between activating an ability (like Fists of Light) or casting a spell, and when the effect was recognized by the server. Everyone in the raid had this lag, so it's not isolated to one person's ISP or geographic region. The players in the raid hail from Europe, US west coast and US east coast.
The issue isn't specific to Zawabi's Revenge. After calling off raids last night, four of us ran epic Last Stand. The lag in there was just as bad.
The issue isn't specific to May 16 either. We've called off too many raids in the past month because of graphical stuttering (rubberbanding, floating in the air) and spells taking 4-5 seconds to resolve. Too often raids are unplayable because the lag is too extreme.
Turbine Developers: Please do something about this lag, sooner rather than later. We are extremely frustrated because lag is making DDO unplayable.
