I played most of the afternoon and evening. Lag was really not an issue at all. I was really impressed! Then I started to notice the same trend that I've noticed for the past 3 days or so. The earlier in the morning it gets, the worse the lag, rubberbanding, server not responding, and disconnects get. Now, it's approx 2:39 a.m. CST here and I can't even get past the loading screen.
Really confusing that there would be far less lag with more people on. The only thing I can think of is that possibly many EU people are just getting up and getting on to play, but I would think that US players would by far make up the bulk of the population leaving standard US peak times the hardest.
Anyone have any ideas why this is happening? I'm a night owl so the bulk of my time spent will be in the wee hours and now it looks like playing when everyone else is on is preferable. That's completely contrary to what I'm accustomed to.
