to much lag in swtor

FeleveFeleve Lebanon, VAMember Posts: 11 Uncommon

i have played the game since beta. but with the lag they have been having for about 2 weeks it is very sad.

you be running along and you start running in place complete stop your character still running but not going anywhere.

also you can press 1 to fire your weapon and then wait 30 seconds or longer before it fires.

if they don't start doing something about the lag i feel that they will lose the subs they have.

not to say much but the new houseing they doing will be a new source of income for them and the players playing swtor will be paying more then any monthly paying game.

    I noticed more lag than usual. Not as much as you seem to have but I did lag out last night.


    Since you mention dropping subs - my best guess is this lag is actually caused by an increased amount of subs this month. Me and a friend subbed to receive the 1000 bonus cartel coins from the May The Fourth event as well as the mansion from being subbed on May the 11th.


    It was my first sub for a year and the first sub for my friend on this game ever. I'm sure there are more people like us and it reflects on the performance of the servers.

    Of all the games I have on my computer SWTOR seems to be the most touchy in terms of frame rate and server side lag. Its the only game I run that I have to tweak until I get passable FPS and I have a GTX 760 etc. etc.

    I have only once seen lag; I'm usually sitting around 50ms ping or better, so I probably wouldn't notice lag if it occurred, anyway.  My ping very briefly went up to the high 90's; surprisingly, I did notice that.

    I have noticed an increase in graphical hitching where suddenly I get a temporary loading screen.  Best I can tell, that's a problem with the NVidia graphic cards and some kind of DirectX incompatibility.  I have been playing around with the scaling options on the NVidia console and switched some functionality away from the GPU to the CPU, and that has made some difference (which is why I'm convinced it's a graphical problem and not a network problem).

    i've never had lag in swtor but i do know tthere's been some issues with memory leaks.. maybe it's got something to do with that?

    Count me along with the folks who don't have lag problems and I'm playing on a four year old system with the video card being the only thing that's changed in it.

    I have no lag...  Perhaps it is time to upgrade your system?  I play and raid at extreme quality.

    Yeah no lag here

    All those "no lag it must be your system" answers always crack me up.


    Ok then it probably just was a bunch of people with shitty computers on the fleet tonight, who kept arguing about the amount of lagspikes that have been taking place for about a week now.
