That sounds more like a server lag issue than anything else, I'd just go with it being a problem for the server and you'll have to wait for them to work out the kinks.

If it were some other day, I might credit it to another problem, but today, yeah, server problems.

So just a tip for people running the game off of laptops. If you want to save your battery life and reduce heating, I recommend the following:

-If you're using your laptop for extended periods, remove the battery and plug it into the AC adapter. Heat is a large contributor to reducing the battery life. Plus, every time you turn your computer on with the ac connector plugged in (regardless of if the battery is full), it begins a cycle. The lifetime of your battery is longer, if you minimize the number of cycles. Prop a book under the back to keep the fan from resting directly on the desk/lap.

-buy a lap/desk cooling pad, such as the Belkin one. It raises your computer off your desk/lap and keeps it cooler.

-clean out your fan if it's an old laptop...
Train yourself to let go of sleep you fear to lose
-Good Job Bioware

Try updating your graphics card drivers, but seriously, somebody open a laptop thread.

Run it fine? I would not say that, your chipset is low-mid range from 2 generations past, on a laptop with a comparatively weaker CPU.

Turn down or off every setting you can. It won't run great, but you might find what's causing a particular issue. I remember something about Bloom, but I'm not sure.
