VIP hurt my performance:(

bebopdrumsbebopdrums Los Angeles, CAPosts: 165Member

Hi all! So, i know this sounds really wierd, but i think the vip upgrade hurt my performance. I was playing the game at graphics MAXED out, totally great, not a hitch in gameplay at all. In fact i was enjoying the game so much i decided to buy the upgrade! WEll, i did so, and i relogged and my gameplay was just terrible!! Totally sluggish! Is this a product of VIP? I cant even imagine that it would, but theres no other explanation! If this is the truly the case i cant believe it and im really super bummed, im quite enjoying my time in lotro...

any advice, help, similar experience...??

thanks

    Extraordinarily unlikely.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    I can't think how your account status would have an impact on performance. There aren't more systems turned on with a VIP account and there aren't more graphics or display objects to deal with. I think the performance and account events are coincidental.

    My advice without knowing your hardware configuration. Move the game to an SSD. The game is very texture intensive and loads a lot from disk.

    Could it be that F2P streams content as you unlock it wheras VIP tries to update all the content available while you play?

    If the game is downloading in the background it could be affecting your performance.  See if there is an option to disable in-game streaming.

    I'm not a programmer or anything but as someone who habitually tweaks their system & game files for max performance, I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, don't think upgrading your account status has, or would have affected your game performance. I've never heard of such a thing, and I don't know how that could even be possible.

    Try tech support I guess, but definitely reboot your PC and check for malware, defrag your hard drive, and all that good stuff first.

    does vip download in the background? how can i view this option or is there a UI notification that content is downloading? Is there content thats added when you buy VIP?
