Earth Space Dock/Qo'nos Lag
 
My laptop is not the best one in the world but the game plays really well for everything but at ESD/Qo'nos, it seems to lag more than it should is there anything I can do to fix this.

It's the balloon spam coming from the new party poppers. The only thing that needs fixing is the poppers.

Also reduce or turn off Reflections quality. The main issue with the balloons is that they're all highly reflective round surfaces, and when you put a lot of those in a small area, the required computations to render them all goes way up.

Okay, is there anything I can do about my load time, it seems like it is getting slower.

Unfortunately this is the only solution . I run a 512 mb GPU with settings to absolute minimum and the lag is still there .

The problem is that the so called shard can't handle moving an object for more then 5 players without any noticeable lag .

Basically if you see that the server isn't responding , you should expect a laggy day .


Don't expect a solution any time soon . The game probably doesn't make enough money to justify server upgrades . Financial problems is why it went F2P in the first place .
