Ignore these idiots, I'm getting the same lag as well. It runs fine, then it'll just start lagging, and rubberband till the combat is over. It makes fleet actions impossible. This doesn't happen on EU proxy, but then you get disconnects instead.
Currently I'm rubberbanding as I'm posing this, my pings gone to 5k, it's sending 32 packets while trying to recieve 3391658 packets....At the same time, my bandwidth stays at 5kbps.
The only time I can participate in fleet actions is for a short period after the server resets. It seems this problem only resides with EU residents as well, and before you all coming rushing on "OMG ZORTS YOUR PC/CONNECTION OUT" it obviously doesn't affect everyone.
uh, the idiots who arent experiencing lag arent just lying about it. its true. other than the downtime and that one queue i was in it has run as smooth as butter. try turning down your graphics settings, or like they said check your connection/isp/hardware.
