It really sucks when I want to stealth and instead sit there mashing my stealth button only to see it fire 6 seconds later and 10 button presses later.

The ability lag has always bothered me but they did something a few days ago that has made it even worse.
^ THIS!

Piss the crap out of me clicking the speeder 10 times or stealth 10 times and nothing happen. Broken game. You bought a TV home and it wont turn on no matter how you smash the on button.

This is a video of my sorcerer, showing the problem with off-global cooldown abilities I'm having.

I interupt a spell then go to use force lightning, the force lightning shows an animation, however it doesn't trigger a cooldown or consume the buff, nor does it do damage. It does however trigger a global cooldown.

I can reliably repeat this many times and is particularly annoying on Immortal Jugg, when tanking and I use retaliation(off gcd) at the same time as any other ability it fails to use the ability but does however trigger gcd.

WoW = Casting bar > animations
SWToR = Animations > Casting bar

just throwing in my 2 cents, glad to see im not the only one noticing this issue.

Coming from WoW, the only discrepancy i have, and that i even told my friends of, was the fact of the delay between hitting a key, and actually using an ability.

As a Sith Sorcerer(healer), i can easily see the latency of responsiveness. I cast Dark Heal, and even as fast as it is, i wont see the hit points increase for an additional .5 seconds after the spell has completed. theres also a .1-.4 second latency when i actually press down on the hotkey to use each spell.

and as all of you should already have noticed, the popping around the screen when there is a cc, or something similar involved. its like the game cant decide where you are supposed to be. this is most noticeable in hutt ball.

speaking of hutt ball, its a PAIN sometimes to try and throw the ball. mashing my hotkey takes a few attempts to actually proc the aoe cursor.

I really hope they fix this as this is the main concern i have with SWTOR. dont get me wrong, im still playing it, hell i stopped my WoW subscription in hopes this will give me something more challenging and new (WoW is becoming more and more faceroll, now even in PvP which is all i do).

Fix this responsiveness issue, and build more warzones, and you will undoubtfully retain many subs

maybe it's class-specific.
I see you have a delay..
maybe this is proof that the people that say they don't see the issue dont know what they are looking for?
