^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is why the game is painful to play at times.  The video was taken on Permafrost around 1am EST last night.  I did 3 PQ's then and the lag just makes the game unplayable.  Spell lag is unbearable and zone stability is gone during prime times.  If I get agro, the only way to stay alive is to run around in circles.  PQ rewards need fixing too, as petitions do nothing when you do start the epic version and get the heroic rewards.

At about 2:10 into the video, you can see the zone itself even crashed.

Can we please get some server upgrades soon?

PQs even lag the great AB server...

On the bright side, maybe PQs will put more focus on server performance, since even very casual players are bound to see the problem.

Thats not lag thats really good performance for a PQ --- Now for me 1fps to locking up for upwards of 20s, thats lag.

If I find your arm, I'm keeping the armor.  It's a really pretty blue.

My thoughts too on watching the video, its definitely running much better then Splitpaw.

Also, why is it that we have to render everyone's pet on every machine?  Kind of wondering if performance is a key problem then why not blank out the vanity stuff, at least for the PQ areas.

The zone crashed... and that's better than on Splitpaw server?  You guys must really have it rough if a crashed zone is better  =/

First off, thank you for getting the Yoshi theme stuck in my head! /stab

We managed to crash [Removed for Content] 2 last night on Unrest. The lag was extreme and 6fps in there didn't help.

What else doesn't help is the endless amount of people grounded on griffons, performance and sight wise.

That being said they sure are hell fun.
