I am getting increasingly concerned that Cryptics rational of running this game on one server is going to be a major problem. You could solve a lot of the lag issues by having an american and european server. This game is going to b popular and this is only the pre-orders.
This is not a moan just a comment.
Invest in some more hardware you know it makes sense.
There are far less players on CO, where it works, and COH and COV had numerous servers.
I expect this to happen a bit while they continue to tweak the servers to deal with performance issues. Granted we all would love to see a more stable server, however we all know there were deadlines for this game, so they are doing the best they can with what they have.
Not too bad overall, considering the number of head start players that are basically stress testing the servers non-stop in the beginning areas.
I wonder how many anti-Star Trek and/or Cryptic people out there are trying to kill the network bandwidth and DOS attack.
I'm sure a chunk of this slowness is due to sheer popularity, but still, just makes me wonder.
