    Default The GCD lag situation is out of control

    This was supposed to be fixed!?

    It's to the point where the drama being created is not in regard to progression, crap-talking, stealing members, or anything like that. It's due to transferring servers and lagging other guilds out and making it hard for them to raid.

    They don't do it to grief; guilds are just transferring from server to server trying to find the mythical lag-free server. In reality, it's that the servers cannot handle the increased load they're getting on Wednesday nights. This is just not acceptable. A server should be able to support 6-8 guilds raiding at the same time.

    WTB fix, Trion. Don't make me cry anymore

    I mean, I guess it would just be a guy who you know, grabs bananas and runs. Or, um, a banana that grabs things. I donít know.
    Why would a banana grab another banana? I mean, those are the kind of questions I donít want to answer.

    It is kind of ridiculous that we have to keep bouncing around from server to server to reduce GCD lag. Keenblade was fine for a while, but Final just said 2 more 11/11 guilds xfered to the server.

    I fear for how ID will be when so many guilds jump into it at once.

    Been on Bloodiron (most pop EU shard) for a few weeks now, lag is disgusting in evenings.

    There's nothing like clicking on a banker on Wednesday night and counting out 12 seconds for the window to come up. Leads you to hope that lag isn't so bad as to get pasted by missed interrupts.

    So it's bit noticeable on Greybriar as well. Everyone, feel free to not transfer there if you're looking for the magically lag free server.

    its gotten to the point where I have to purge @2-3secs on sicaron to make sure it actually works. (or well... used to be its a bit better this week)
    Tide warden interrupts were fun as well

    Are you kidding? It's been hideous for some time now, since the server merges.

    If Trion wants to concentrate players onto fewer servers, they should make sure the servers can handle the load. Which apparently none of them can. Will hardware upgrades be forthcoming (though they should have happened before the merges)? Or is Trion waiting until enough people have gotten disgusted and left the game as a fix?
