I wonder if BW has a work team that raids together and actually play this game. If they do i would love a Dev response for that. I dont need names/servers or any proof. Just a single Dev that says yes we have 8 or 16 people that work at BW that actually raid in this game on a weekly schedule. Only thing I would care to know is what time they raid and days. Just so i know if its peak hours or else. When I say raid i mean like HM EC: Denova raiding. Dont have to be 4/4. Maybe 2/4 or even 1/4 will suffice. And can that Dev just ask them if they EVER get RANDOM 3-5sec LAG SPIKES.

This might blow that Dev mind but im willing to take that chance. :P

1. We raid at peak times cus thats when people can play. Usually people play after work so ~6-midnight is about standard. peak times for server. So a solution for this game to be playable is to change my entire schedule. Go to work come one sleep for 5hrs wake up raid from midnight to 3-4am. then go to work. Im sorry no game is worth that. and if Bioware doesnt fix this lag anytime soon. Hope the RP player base can sustain there payroll.
One solution does not work for everyone. That's why there are multiple solutions. If it doesn't work for you, you don't have to do it.

yes in house testing guessing done during work hours. so its not peak time...... and sometimes companies will in house test on different servers. ie low pop. I never get lag when i log on randomly on days off during the morning or whatever. but 8-9pm hits, incoming horrible lag. Im looking for a group of people that play this game semi-hardcore raiding guild that also works with BW on making this game.

The amount of lag on ToFN is almost unbearable during ops at peak times, every fight I lose atleast 4-5 GCDs and attacks due to lag and on EC HM bosses with their enrage timers make it problematic to say the least.

So our Raidgroup also has this problem...
I find it funny when Bioware says "Its on your end" when EVERYONE in the raid has the SAME issue at the EXACT SAME TIME!
Bioware, yes... it is our connection ;-)

The funny thing is we had this lagspikes also on our old server which had not as much players as our new one.
But yes, it did get worse with more player.

Has BW officially said it was on our end? I haven't seen anything, and I sincerely doubt they would be so shortsighted to think that.

I ve never seen that point but I can say the Lag was so Bad on Fleet 2 on TRE server at 8pm most people logged after 5 to 10 mins of 5 sec lag spikes every 20 secs ...

BW please address this Issue

Yep not to mention the random trash reset if you wipe and dont leave someone inside the zone apparently it can shift you from one instance to another of the fleet resetting all the trash.

This has happened many times to us so we take way to long to do a Operations as this just slows us down over and over.

This and the server lag spikes for the entire Ops at the same time is why people are leaving the game.
