I've been having severe lag today, and occasional lag the past few days. Today was so bad it went beyond rubberbanding to every character and AI in a map freezing, with only some effects still rendering like plasma.

I have Verizon FIOS.




Tracing route to patchserver.crypticstudios.com [208.95.185.41]

I'm convinced it's on their end. It's definitely not my computer which is more than powerful enough to run multiple instances of this game simultaneously. I never had an issue with lag like this when I played last year, and don't have lag issues in any other game.

It may be as simple as needing a server reboot. I don't know. What I do know is the lag has gotten steadily worse day after day since I started playing again, and somehow not everyone is getting it.
