This is the most important factor in not being able to enjoy pvp or pve gameplay for me- I simply dont get good response from the game technically, making it near impossible to enjoy the good parts of the game due to poor performance of the engine.
Whole-heartedly agree. The game has really degenerated ever since 1.2. I bought a new computer, specifically to play this game in december, and up until 1.3 I could play without any lag whatsoever. Nowadays I get random lag, fps drops and, as mentioned in the title, rubberbanding. It isn't just in pvp either, if I get knocked off my feet by an NPC, I'll stutter too.
