With War of Emperium events held every Wednesday and Saturday night, anyone not participating is subjected to the most horrendous lag one could possibly imagine in a MMORPG setting. The only thing I can remember being comparable to this was a full scale Relic Raid in Dark Age of Camelot. My connection is cable, I pity the poor guy who has an even shoddier connection. If you do a /who during these things, the server population can surpass 4,500 players at one time. Then there are the dozens of yahoos that set up chat rooms while they go to sleep for the night. Not Merchants selling their wares, but other classes, taking up precious bandwidth to set up lame-o chat rooms that noone even uses. Some even make their rooms private, put up some offensive title for the room name, and then go to bed. Just take a walk through any of the in-game cities, and you will find little personal chatrooms such as; "Sleeping...", "Away for the weekend", "Get the fack outta here!", "Look here and you are dumb!", etc., etc. For a game that charges a monthly fee, I don't exactly enjoy the constant lag and latentcy issues caused by lack of server variety and overpopulation. If there's at least one glaring problem with iRO, it's that lack of much needed additional servers. Just two servers isn't cutting it.
