Severe Mouse Lag

Actually I must have been lucky last week to not get that much mouse lag. This week it's horrible again, and SORRY but I eventually HAVE to click some menu besides fighting! When my inventory is full, I'd like to sell out my stuff to the vendor and put other stuff into the fleet bank or my personal bank! And as soon as I start doing something else than staying in the usual game and going to a menu, it's starting and getting worse every half minute! This is definately a game issue, full stop! Please sort this out, it's slowly but definately getting on my nerves. Last week when I thought it's getting better, I decided to go on with my new main characte and I brought it to Rear Admiral 2 so far ... I would love to finish my career and try out Season Two on the holodeck server in August when it's being released. But if this thing is not improving, I am seriously quitting, this time definately. I won't buy a fourth mouse, I won't change any further settings in my system (because it's running well right now and I don't intend to make a running system malfunction somehow). Either the problem solves itself when Season 2 is patched on the holodeck server, or I'm definately out of the game, no return anymore.
I know, Cryptic, this won't hurt you because I've already bought my lifetime and you earned your money from me, however I hope - on the human side - it will make you think a bit how much people care for this game out there, even in small Switzerland. Not playing a game even though having a lifetime sub after only six months... that should probably make people think "I hope the same won't happen to me some day".
BTW - Your forum is going very slowly, all other sites are loading instantly while I still have to wait for "save changes". While I'm writing this, the page is loading and loading.
PS1: I reclothed two new BO's after my Rear Admiral promotion and then all changes got lost, I had to recloth them again and then it cost me 32'000 EC for each one, so 64'000 EC lost because the changes were not saved. That's nothing major since I've got almost a million EC left, but I just wanted to mention it. Wasn't necessary having to do the same stuff twice, it's also a time issue. And with this mouse lag, it takes me almost 20 minutes for two BO's to make a full reclothing including badge, rank, face, hair, etc.
Today I restarted the game seven times so far, every time after only five minutes of playing, the mouse lag started and two minutes later, the game was unplayable without the mouse. So you can imagine, it took me four restarts just to get a single DSE (3 times 10 enemy squadrons in Zeta Andromedae) done. Another two restarts for the bridge officer reclothing. The first three to five minutes of course I had to rush through and then I made mistakes, just in the hope I can make it before the mouse arrow is acting weird again. So all I could do was save everything I did right, exit the game (mouse lag started), restart the game, correct all I had done wrong the time before, and eventually get all the reclothing done just before the next mouse lag started.
Wanna hear more mouse lag stories? I could tell you three every day or more if you want, maybe that's the way how to let people know how FRUSTRATING this is! Please do something soon. I don't wanna miss Season 2, but I will if it's not fixed by then.
