Lost Shores lost in lag.

Waited an hour for the event to start, fun and running around.

Once it started,so did the lag (ability lag or what it is).

After a while I just gave up, let go of mouse and keys and then watched my toon pop around on the map, casting spells and doing things and popping up in places I were at 5 minutes ago... seemed to be a good event, but totaly unplayable.

... disapointed.

    I still think it's the best MMO offering right now, and i'm having lots of fun, but these events are not fun when lag is that bad.

    I have to agree. For me, it wasn't client side lag, my FPS didn't drop below 20, but the server lag was horrible. Moving, using skills, dodging, etc... Sometimes a half second delay, sometimes a multi second delay and sometimes certain actions would never respond at all.

    I hope they will either find a solution for the server lag before the next big live event, or they will wisen up and design the events to take place over a wider area and maybe even split them between a number of zones, so that everyone isn't concentrated in one spot. For this particular event we had this afternoon, they would have been a lot better off splitting the invasion between four beach heads around LA and having the mobs come in more modest waves, rather than filling the entire event area as densely as we saw today.

    Yes... very much server lag... they just could not handle the load, even in overflow zones.

    Guess eventually they will be able to handle these loads, but so far it seems it always break, slowdown their servers.

    Poor server devs - other Anet people must hate them.

     

    These unique events start to be double frustrating - if you miss them it is a pain, if you are there it isn't very playable.

    Price of successful game.

    I had little lag.  But the whole event seems like it's broken about 15-minutes in...    Got to the Outpost in Caledon forest and it wouldn't work.  Logged out and tried some different over-flow servers and no joy.

     

    I'll try again tomorrow.

     

    So far, this has been a fail-whale event.   About half my guild are stuck and we have no idea what to do or how to progress.

     

    EDIT:  Also, it's apparently broken further in as well.   So, even if I'd gotten past that, the very next step is not working.
