I havent played STO for a few years, but I was excited to play it again. However I am getting extremly awful server lag and can't do anything in the game. I've been experiencing a ton of rubber-banding and a lot of ignored commands.
I am using a really good computer.
I am on a really good connection (does Battlefield 3, SWTOR, Starcraft II, Shogun 2, YouTube in 1080P with no problems at all).
The game is only 2 years old as far as I know, so you couldn't have played it a few years ago. But yeah, I have the same problem - I can play awhile, then rubber banding kicks in and can't do anything.
The problem isn't so much with the world, but it just no longer accepts a connection from computer apparently. I can watch others go by , just can't move myself.
