Since start of the first week of 2x XP weekend its been noticeable worse at night for me (eastern time).
It seems to basically start to get a lot of lag around 9-9:30 > 10 pm EST. Affected things are:

1. Mail lags out 3-5 min to get items out), gets worse with time
2. GTN Lags out, unable to add items, buying items goes back to the mail issue once bought.
3. PvP que button bugs out, a reset of the UI is needed to re enable it (ctrl+u x2) also gets worse with time
4. PvP matches are FUBAR, been in a few now that's been 8v3, 1v6, 4v4 or worse, won one in 30 sec cause was no other players from opposing team could enter..
5. Login from character screen can take up to 3-5 minutes (server congestion for sure)

I am assuming this may have to do with the server shutdowns and transfers to the west coast servers and peak hour for their players mixed with the old west coast ones. This seriously needs to be addressed pronto, my suspicion is that its a server stress test this first weekend to see how much load they can take as a reference on what they need to add/upgrade to accommodate the new transfers, been nice to let your customers know ahead of time if this is the case.

Would be nice if Bioware could at least acknowledge that they have a problem and working on it.

It's just an inconvenience until our raid members start dc'ing regularly on the NiM dreadguards after Heirad is down, that's when it started seriously pissing me off.

We had, what, 5 or 6 dc's tonight in NiM TfB? Good news is that from 33% Heirad can be killed with 3 dps with out hitting the 3rd lighting phase

Except that we did hit and survive the 3rd Lightning Field. But you wouldn't know, because you weren't there.

Hello. It was very laggy indeed.

Mailboxes wouldn't send mail out till 2 or 3 mins later.
I couldn't get mail in same fashion. Took few minutes to show up and longer still to get item if at all.
Loading to character select took like 5 times longer than normal.
When getting on ship shuttle etc. I would be able to run around for min before it would actually load.
My companion wasn't showing his buffs (could be another reason like a bug).
GTN I could post for sale one item second would not post.

Also I couldn't purchase Improved speeder training III with cartel coins. Kept giving error. I was finally able to however last night.

So basically I avoided using the GTN and Mail which kinda sucked since i needed to give my lower lvl alt items money for the double xp weekend.

I noticed several posts in customer support all weekend regarding this. Never saw a response from BW. Kinda lamers. They reply to some mundane bs posts but not the important ones.

They should extend our double xp ! Alot of peeps got short end of stick. Boooo

I agree that Harbinger was just awful in terms of extreme lag on mail, gtn and loading screens in particular for me. So much so that on Sunday at one point I got tired of dealing with it and gave up.

They really need to address this and make some accommodations for popular times when lots of people will be on on the popular mega servers.

Maybe it was just me but I was having a couple of these same problems on the Shadowlands. My game also kept disconnecting due to my ms getting over 10k+

Same issue, but during OPS we had people getting delayed interrupts and missing critical timing.

This type of game play is TERRIBLE if you are trying to do OPS like Nightmare Pilgrim or Kephess (EC) NiM fights.

LAG is already an issue during the normal weeknight, but compounded A LOT during Double XP weekends.

BIOWARE - Please feed the server hamsters more food or get another hamster wheel to handle the server load.
