Alrighty... Here is something I noticed tonight.

This is possibly a graphics issue for some of you. I too was seeing lags in the 50-60ms range with choppy play. VERY annoying. My speed and ping tests were fine.

What finally solved it for me is I had to change all my graphics settings under "advanced" to low.

Which fixed my issue. However it really tees me off that all of a sudden this is an issue. I've been playing since pre-launch with no issues whatsoever till about 2 weeks ago. Now I have to reduce my graphics settings for proper gameplay?? So now I have no issues even with 50-60ms lag.

Still, this would seem to be a BW issue with maybe some graphics changes in recent patches?

Just something to try if the server aspect isn't it for you.

UPDATE: i seem to have solved my issues by making sure my graphics card drivers were up to date and also making sure I had latest DirecX 11 ... not sure if this will help everyone but it worked for me.

How can I fix my computer so shader complexity works on SWTOR?
My system specs are :
i5 3570
ati radeon hd 5570
8gb (1600mhz) of ram
win7 64bit
On this system, I can max out the graphics with everything on high quality, but every time I turn Shader complexity up past "very low" my game lags too much and is very unplayable.
I believe it to be a bug, due to the fact that my system runs it with everything maxed out above 60 FPS. What are some tips that can help me fix this issue?

Good evening everyone. I'm connecting from Japan.
In about 1-2 weeks recently became sever LAG.
I'm connected to The Bastion.

Normal time is about 140ms, now at about 400-600ms, To infinity and beyond sometimes!
I feel especially bad 5:00 (CST) ~ 12:00 (CST).

And measured the ping of the path, I will report.

I've been experiencing severe lag since around Christmas, which is extremely aggrivating considering the fact that I had just subscribed about a week before this started occuring, after having been a F2P player for about 2 weeks, during which I had next to no lag at all, except maybe on the Fleets.

MS has been rising only to drop again just about every minute. It will reach staggering heights up in the 20k's. My normal MS should be around 24-27MS. I can barely play at all as a result. My sister has told me she has the same issue as me. I usually don't even crash to desktop. It'll take a minute to load and then i'll either be dead, or i'll be standing on the other side of the room with a bunch of dead mobs that I miraculously managed to kill by mashing random buttons.

I've done all the steps, like clear the DMS cache, fix the launcher, updating all my drivers, updating windows, double-checking ports and firewalls and the like, but I know for a very certain fact it is not my connection. I've played several MMO's and so has my sister, and we can't recall ever having any trouble like this with any of them.
