I have a question...is it not possible to run several servers like Cryptic's long time hit creation, COH/COV or another excellent graphics ddriven game, AofC? I.m just wondering if 4 or 5 servers would help spread out the universe a bit...

I believe have 2 servers would solve some of the lag for some players (I'm only getting never ending loading screens ). Just have a Prime Server and an extra one at one point Cryptic ^^ Or just assume 10x more people will be online and get the hardware for it
The "one server" we're all on doesn't represent one physical server in a room somewhere. The game is set up so that it can be run on as many servers as Cryptic needs it to run on. Everything's instanced. When you travel from one instance to another, you're probably moving to a different server ...
Cryptic do not have the hardware at all. The servers they are using are the same or linked to CO as that game has mirror issues in game. Basically they are quick to take our money but slow to provide us with the corresponding service.
The reason the game is so slow, especially in places further from CA is that they have insufficient server capacity and lack the ability to do simple maths or understand the nature of internet connections.
Too many people for the server space=expand but nothing happens. Even with the planned 'expansion' this weekend I doubt anything will change.
I believe the use of multiple question marks and exclamation marks is what's slowing down the servers. Please stop so I can go back to playing the game properly, or I'll be forced to take legal action.
I have some rubberbanding from time to time, nothing serious. Other than that, no lag at all. No server disconnects. Nice, close to normal, game. Then again my ISP is rock solid, and my network setup is the same at 26 mbit connection.
This has nothing to do with ISP. There really is an issue with the game and capacity at the moment. I JUST got a SERVER NO RESPONDING message trying to beam out of Stardock. Well miffed as I've only just started playing, can't assign an additional tactical officer and promotion isn't working due to lag.
This is always happening at the moment and still the promised additional capacity isn't in yet. I wonder when they'll finally put it in?!?!?
