I must have been on the wrong server. Sunday night was the worst lag I've seen in beta to date. I wasn't on cyssor either

It was definately fun on the weekend however I would definately not pay for this sort of service. Servers are getting better and less laggy, but there is still a long ways to go before they reach retail quality. I'm talking about:

-Sanctuary lag
-Certain continents lagging
-Huge ping fluctuations (evident when you hold the cursor over someone, just look at their ping)

Sure we can play the game, but is it really stable yet?

There's a reason it's called beta

Server crash helped me once. We were overwelmed defending a base... for some reason i was able to log in when there were only 100 people on server. I had time to pepper the base with turrets and mines, when people logged in near a turret or mine, they got nailed.

Tons of Nitsch spamm that afternoon.

Wow, thanks. I had no idea.

Did you ever stop to think that maybe if everyone continues to say, "Hey, the servers were great last night, I had so much fun!" that the PS team would get the impression that the servers were stable enough for release? If you want to help the PS team prepare for retail (which is what you're supposed to be doing in a beta test) you need to make them AWARE of these issues instead of shrugging it off 'because it's beta'.

They know the status of the servers. They were there too. Also, there are beta forums where you report stuff and I think they'll pay more attention to those

Dude, they know when the servers go down. And they have a much better idea of the performance of the servers then you or I do.

Uneccesary for us to bitch about problems they are already painfully aware of.

^bitching is bad, although that doesn't mean that we should dismiss problems that should seem obvious to developers. I work in QA and developers miss A LOT of things, that is why there are beta testers

1. Refer to the title of this topic.

2. Who says I didn't post on the beta boards?

3. Did you read what I said? The devs might know the state of the server but generally they are spending more time fixing bugs than actually playing. Also the fact that they are located physically near the server would skew their perspective on lag, hence they need the players to tell them.

4. <Sputty> I'm DLing PS
<Sputty> Heh
<Sputty> 30 mins left

Why are you posting about beta at all?

I was posting about people whining alot. You also made it sound like you were expecting it to be released in it's current state. My first post was about the weekend itself and what happened to me.

I am a developer, albeit not for games, and I can assure you... as blind as we seem at times we do not miss it when our glorious programs come crashing to a halt for everyone connected. So what if we seem uncarring about a few poor schmucks that drop out because of some hard to believe supposed bug....

I was having lots of lag this weekend, but only slight connectivity problems. Didn't really matter, I'm already hooked

Well I swear, I work on a team with a few developers that don't unit test shit. They pass stuff along that blatently doesn't even begin to work. Today is one of those days in fact.
