    I recognize many of the posters suggesting that lag is worse as being from Orien. Orien is the default server right now, and when DDO went free to play on all content, it easily doubled our population. Probably much more so. The Who panel tells the story. The server is getting a wee bit crushed right now. There really wasn't a ton of lag before this, but now it is stand still Mabar spectral dragon kind of lag once in a while. Anyone saying there isn't lag is not on Orien.

    I don't want the default changed, I want a c5.9xlarge for Orien. Or maybe a 24! :-)

    Oh I agree. I said as much but it got deleted.

    I was normally getting some rubber band lag about once a month - you move 3 steps forward, you reset back to where you were, move 3 steps, reset, etc - lasted maybe 30 secs.

    This month? I'm getting "stuck in the ground" lag about 3 times per day, and it lasts for a long minute or more.

    But so far this month, it's only adversely affected one encounter, and I just spammed heals on our tank till the lag monster left. He survived.

    A few hours ago Cocomajobo posted that they are on top of this latest infestation and working to correct it.

    I don't know what SSG's situation is, but be aware most companies are closed or teleworking with minimal staff. Try to be more patient than normal, as we are still in abnormal times.

    Default Thank you all!

    Thank you all for taking the time to share your experiences, I have read them all as has the friend who was considering returning with me.

    Also thank you to Cordovan for cleaning the thread instead of locking it, I appreciate that that's more work for you, but it's much more useful in this state than either the "locked" or the "toxic" version. Thank you. And thanks to SSG for opening up all content for April, I think that was a great idea and suggest you consider a "free content week" twice a year or something, similar to what HBO does. It would be a great marketing strategy.

    Based on your feedback I'm going to try it, probably on off-peak hours and maybe on Wayfinder. Maybe I'll be able to rope in a family member to join me. Maybe try for a mount if it's fairly quick, or just explore Sharn a bit.

    Sadly no other member of my PnP group is returning, the one friend who was considering it decided he'd rather focus on the game we're currently playing, so I may be pugging after all.

    Peace and health to you all!

    I only solo and I get bad lag too often. Too often to me is experiencing anything resembling unplayable even once during a gaming session. Unplayable means I can't play the game, ie I can't move or attack etc. I can't imagine how bad it gets with 6 man groups or even raids. So while I've never experienced a lag raid wipe, I can certainly believe these happen due to what I've experienced solo.

    When the game runs well, even with some changes I don't agree with, it's still fun. THF is a blast now, a very welcome and appreciated change.

    Default That didn't go well

    LOL, that went badly :-(

    So I got a couple of family members to log in with me and check out Keep on the Borderland, thinking to see how fast horse feathers drop, and now we're all locked in limbo.

    Lag on the airship was moderate, but we went ahead and entered Keep, and we all stuck on the loading screen.

    We logged out and back in, if we select that character it says Loading and gets to 100% and hangs there.

    If we select a different character, we can get in, but if we go out and back in to the Keep character, it loads to 100% and freezes again.

    Reboot does not help.

    I guess there's still some work to do.
