I rarely play when the servers are busy so I was wondering if this is something that happens when lots of folk are trying to log in at the same time but it seems to be taking a bit long even for that, plus I'd expect to see a queue.

Holy run-on sentence!

ETA: After 15 minutes staring at the blue spinner of trepidation, I closed client, restarted and lo! The blue spinner of trepidation remains.

Might want to look into this, guys.

As a west coast resident, I logged in today to find my server lag (ping) tripled from what it has been for the past several years. That is a serious impact on pvp, and a very discouraging development. I live in a large metropolitan area with 256 mbps internet connection, and my lag has been tripled. No impact? Who are you guys kidding? And to throw this news out at the last minute as if it's not a big deal ... I honestly don't why I hold any optimism for this game. It's always one step forward, two steps back. I was excited about the server merge and the upcoming new content. Now I'm wondering why I came back to this game

I distinctly remember that you would seriously consider it but sofar no word on it.
I stand corrected, apparently they did choose a different date.

Keith did you guys moved servers considerably? I people reporting way different pings vs. what they had yesterday. East Coast players that used to have pings to Harbinger of 100 - 150 now that have 40 - 70, opposite for west coast players where their ping increased drastically.

edit: nvm just saw Keith explanation of the datacenters

So the hardware and software update was to reduce the footprint (Carbon?) and may result in additional lag for people.

So aside from the footprint is there any upside for the players? Is this inline with any improvements to the game experience, graphics or gameplay?
