Brandon, with respect, your canned response frustrates the player base because we know, you know and everyone knows it's NOT his ISP or connection, it is perfect world. Implying that it is somehow OUR connections or ISPs is disingenuous and frankly, insulting. The rubber banding is wide-spread and makes the game unplayable. I am stuck on "cut the chord" trying to kill Hakeev and it simply isn't possible due to rubber banding, server lag and freeze frame. STO/Perfect World's game is a good game. Its hardware is deplorable and shameful. Your resources should have been spent of a stable server platform NOT on new content. Probably no coincidence that this website's Support link is also inop.

Companies never admit they are at fault, and they can not say its my fault because i have done every mission in the game without an issue. I have done multiple stfs too and i have been kicked from the server with "the game has lost the connection" when clicking "hail" and when there have been enough players to start an stf so, gfx is not the issue and its defiantly not my connection and for multiple players to complain about the same things from around the world normally means its a server issue!

But wait they have had loads of server maintenance and fixed... nothing!
Ther will no doubt be another server maintenance soon that will do nothing.

Reminds me of Nexon NA when trying to play one of their games, and yes those guys are just as bad at running their games as PW is. They penny pinch and don't give jack S*** about their player base on the cash they get. I only say this from experience in playing other games. Since Nexon and PW are both based out of by surprise surprise an ASIA country (South Korea), their NA counterpart thinks that they can stave off money by giving us cheap crappy servers to run the games on which results in random disconnections, server lag and what not.

I remember when Cryptic was owned by a real NA company and the servers never had as many issues as we have now. Either the hardware is horse hockey or the software just plainly sucks balls or it could be very bad coding. Either way the result is that we the players suffer from it and that results in the amount of complaints about server lag, rubber banding and server disconnects.

simple logic, if it was the servers or the client...EVERYONE would experience issues.
everyone doesn't, sooo...yeah, brandon was correct in asking people to check their stuff.

clean your systems, shut down unnecessary processes, reinstall dx and c++ runtimes. update/reinstall drivers. software and drivers can get corrupted, they are not eternally perfect where one install covers the entire lifespan of the OS they're installed on.

other issues could be your route to the servers, saying 'other online locations work fine' is no indicator of anything related to an mmo with servers in a specific location. neverwinter working fine as some have stated, could be a general indication that you do have corruption somewhere in STO's client specifically.

shader cache could be corrupted, specific files, difficult to guess as you could have the clients on different hdd's even.

Firstly, not everyone who experiences problems uses the forum, so you cannot just randomly speculate that the majority is not lagging. Secondly people from all different countries are having the connection problems, so unless all these people have all the same programs installed on their systems, the same OS, same hardware, same ISP which take the same route to the servers, there is no way it's an issue on the players end.
And defending the developer who is clearly in the wrong, you come across as insulting and arrogant to the players experiencing these severe issues.

lol, 'it's not me it's them FIX IT!!1!!' sorry bud, it's you, i don't have any issues, several others i know that play have no issues. you missed the simple logic part.

if it was the servers or client then everyone would have the problem. so, using logic here, if most don't have an issue, and you do...we all use the same servers and the same client...not all that hard to logically figure out that the fault lies somewhere on your end.

and the lol was also at me defending cryptic, oh ye of stupid assumptions, i detest what cryptics done to star trek, slavery, doff's nothing more than slaves to be bought, sold, and bound to a captain? what are they chained to the ship? the dil grind, the rep grind, sci nerf, escort/dps centric endgame...the list is nigh endless.

but brandon was right, simple logic shows that, as it shows that the issues contained in this thread unless the entire player base has them, are yours and several others to help cryptic to figure out where things are going wrong on either your systems, network, ISP or route to the servers. whining, crying, and screaming 'it's not us' when clearly it isn't cryptic or at most not cryptics prob entirely, doesn't solve anything.

'all these people'? very few people, especially considering how many do post in these forums and haven't jumped into this thread. you're a great one for assumptions, try using your head instead of looking for easy answers that it's someone elses fault.

sorry deadspace your wrong.

I would waste my time and explain why but why should i? You have made up your mind and done no research into the matter other than defend Craptic who's servers are down more than a prostitutes knickers and for a lower price!

It amazes me how people blame the users computers that are located all over the world and are different and also there ISP's (dont forget some of you without issues are on the same isp's as us with issues) or something else lke were dreaming it.

Logic when a group of people are having "the same" issues is to blame the company whos software you are using and thats what we have done, im just wondering how many of these players like myself who are having issues play other games that are working fine. My other games are working fine by cryptics are lagging, so yes its my computer maybe its too advanced for cryptics servers!

Thank you, i think i found the problem. MY computer is just too good for there servers

Look ... I uninstalled STO completely, then downloaded just the Setup.exe from the website, all clean. Then I unpacked the launcher, started it, then it starts patching from zero and it crashes just a few minutes after. Shader cache? Non-existent, the game didn't exist before. Corrupted files? Shouldn't be, as I just initiated the installation process. If that's already the case, I can safely say it's not my end's fault.

I have done many tests to ensure that my internet works fine. Tracing checks, connection speed checks with my provider, port settings etc. it's all perfectly fine. If I was the only one with this problem, I would investigate further on my end, surely so, but there are so many others who recently started having issues with launcher crashing to desktop etc. at the same time I did ... so ... it could really be something on their side, not on ours. I don't mean that everyone has to be affected, but it could be a regional issue, right? Maybe an IP issue, no clue, but then it's out of my power to fix it.

Buttom line is, I can't play, as can't many others for the last days, due to the launcher not being able to patch the game properly. It's only natural that people start getting mad at someone since they can't do anything about it, including me. They all wanna play, so do I, butt we can't. It's nice that you experience no issues and I wish I lived at your place or a few miles around, and then I'd probably have no issues either.

Oh well, let's hope for a chance to play next weekend.

PS: I might have to add that my video card drivers are updated automatically and therefore can't be the source of the problem unless they say it might cause issues with this and that, and then I can manually abort the update and wait for the next one.
