several months have gone by, first turbine denies lag, then they say they have fixed it THREE times yet still no improvement.......... should i go ahead and give up on this game and the lag ever being fixed?
o btw i have a 4.7ghz i5 and a 570 gtx on a 30mb comcast cable internet connection, i lag in NOTHING except lotro
I play on Nimrodel and I see lags on the order of one or two seconds quite frequently. I also found that I could totally confuse a stable horse but using the left mouse button to change the camera angle.
In an extreme case my champ was frozen on horseback for about 20 seconds. I was able to point the camera in any direction. A wolf that was chasing my 'toon was frozen in place while it's legs were running 90 miles an hour. Finally the systems(s) unfroze and my horse vanished immediately and there was a sound like a machine gun for a second while morale dove to about 20% (and a stream of red negative numbers spewed out the top of my 'toon's head). I think the sound was the wolf's teeth hitting my armor about 20 times a second. Apparently a whole lot of events queued up on one side of the "clog", and when the "clog" broke, they played out rapid fire.
This revealed some interesting bits about how the client works, and maybe will help the developers narrow down the source of the lag.
BUT! Be patient. Intermittent bugs are the most difficult to track down.
