the past few days i've started to have some serious lag issues in which my character will rubberband. sometimes the lag only lasts a few seconds. other times it lasts for several minutes making it impossible to progress in a mission. This can make simply walking across a room a chore. I could count on one hand how many times this issue effected me before the most recent maintainence but now it seems that since the maintainence it's gotten worse. My computer is only a year old and it wasn't exactly on the cheap side when i made it so i'm not worried too much about a part on my end. I will also add that switching characters it takes forever to load sometimes and also to load into the game. Anyone else been having issues?
I am also having these ridiculous lag issues. 2/3 of the Starbase 24 games I play I get noticeable rubber banding problems. I am certain its not my ISP or computer as I have no problem with other games (playing with 20 or more people in a Skype call with ZERO lag). But for some reason when I play this game my latency will randomly spike.
Craptic needs to fix their craptastic servers before I'm done with this nonsense.
I keep getting told to stop whining, its my ISP, even though I have it happen at multiple physical locations and others report it, too. ST:O is my only online game lagging like this. And now I can't log in, period. Server issues, maybe?
Glad to know i'm not the only one having an issue. It's not my computer that I know for sure and i can safely, save them saying otherwise themselves, rule out my isp. No other game does this but sto and it started right after the recent server maintainence. I also don't buy the excuse that the ISPs of different people all around the world are all having issues at the exact same time or are getting throttled. The weekend of the 4th excuse is also not viable imo. if the weekend of the 4th was the problem then all games would be doing this and all my internet should be lagging, not just sto.
Came back to point out that since today the game has become unplayable as I can now no longer connect to the game and even if I do it crashes a few moments later. This happens with no other game or anything to do with my internet. I have also tried the EU and US proxy in separate attempts to no avail. The EU wouldn't even let me connect and the US didn't do a thing either. Not trying to be a jerk about it but this is getting ridiculous.
I tried checking the safe mode box in the options from the launcher page and logged in that way. I also did a safe log in as well. I'm not sure what that did but it's not given me grief since I tried that. I also cut my video settings to one step above the lowest settings as well just to be on the safe side once I was in the game.
Right now i'm running in safe mode without a proxy and it seems to be doing fine right now. I've not had any issues in the past few hours. Idk what that did but it seemed to help. Worth a shot.
Not seeing any difference when safe mode is checked. Well, other than the launcher taking an extra 15 seconds to load. I'm still getting absurd rubber banding. Multiple instances of "server not responding" and two disconnects have already occurred.
How long will can I put up with this until I switch to a different MMO? Only time will tell.
