    I don't know what exactly should have priority over the game literally being unplayable. And also, the lag problem started before covid so using it as an excuse makes no sense.
    I'm not on Caly and the servers I'm currently playing on are ummm - less stressed?
    Oh, wait a minute, MA are blaming the Internet. Silly me - those other planets must be closer to us than Caly then .

    At any rate, my failed, failed (usually only 2 not 3 for me) are normally 2 mins apart or so, and I'm playing a diversionary game with the persistant lowish loot lag of trying to kill the next mob in 2 or 3 shots before the previous loot arrives. So far, on mixed mobs, I've not managed to squeeze my latest mob's loot in before a lagged one - still trying. From the composition, I'd probably be able to tell if I manage it.

    There is a tech question I have if anyone is able to answer, though. I believe there's a port that games use for super-fast information exchange, but the bandwidth is probably very limited. It's just a thought, but apart from some serious rubber banding, on the whole my vehicles seem to be glitching less actually. Could it be that MA wanted to improve this and rerouted vehicle position updates via that fast port? Any techies around who can provide an "insight" - and help with a solution MA would of course never admit to having followed?

    I remember 2 - 3 years ago we had lag issues very similar to this and a lot of players expressed their frustration here on this forum, similar to what's happening right now.

    I remember that there was some speculation about maybe one of the ocean cables perhaps undergoing maintenance and internet traffic being temporarily re-routed... There was a thread where everyone stated what country they were from and if they were experiencing lag or not in the game.

    I remember someone had knowledge about where MindArk servers were located and said that this company was not reliable overall... Eventually the lag went away after several VUs.

    I don't want to start any conspiracy theories but I suppose it's possible MindArk moved the game servers at the time so as to get better latency, and just moved the game servers back to the cheaper server farm to save money?

    I hope not. Having a reliable game experience is probably the most important thing, especially in a period where you are experiencing a lot of playerbase growth such the one we're in right now.

    Please MindArk, this should be more important to you than it currently appears to be...

    This is a different type of glitch and it's been around for very long, I don't think it has anything to do with lag mayhem atm. And the "getting out of the water like a weightless mutant" animation is very funny, I grew to like it eventually, I laugh every time it happens.
    OK thanks for the info.

    Things seem to have changed since the last time I went poking around.



    The game servers appear to now be in Paddington, London, England hosted by Zayo?

    The download/updates are hosted by Amazon. MA, just put the whole thing on AWS please and thank you.

    Amazon has also developed a version of cryengine specifically for AWS based games. Maybe MA could transition to this?

    Whatever engine they might change to must have solid solutions for MMOs, CE isn't the best
    for it even though it is better now than what CE2 is with certain solutions.

    should have been a public poll...
