I played like 10 minutes into the game then bang, my ship goes bonkers, like my ship still kinda moves very slowly, everyone else is moving very slowly, but my ship is flinging behind itself to infront of itself several times a second. When I fly away out of range of everyone it goes away when I see someone it came back, but it only lasted one game though. Nothing to do with my connection or PC, it seems that it could be a server performance issue.
I never claimed to have a high end computer i mearly listed whats in my machine and yes it is an old card as its the last part of my machine that i will be upgrading soon but if you read recomended specs for this game it say it recomends the 8800 gtx series and above not minimum of 8800gtx . The card may be old but it was top of the line when i bought it and cost over 400 for it and it still has no problems running any of the last games at very well indeed. incase you dont believe ill copy paste it here for you.
