Now that being said, the lag is literally making this game unplayable for me. It has been this way since i played(if u can call it that) during that 2nd alpha test. I've been trying to play with a KFM, but its impossible because i have 3-4 second delay on skills so i cant combo or counter at all so i just stand there dieing... I tried a summoner too, but my cat just lags out, disappears, and reappears next to me in a flash of light whenever i send her off to attack something with Blade And Soul Items, and then the mob targets me instead... Not to mention the rubberbanding that is pretty out of control. Now I REALLY am not fond of making a new character on one of the new servers because i already spent most of my test ncoin during the alpha and i don't wanna lose my cute stuff during the coming betas, i know, vanity, whatever lol... i wanna be cute for the couple months of beta :P
I realize this is just alpha and beta tests, and lag, errors, issues are bound to happen. And im fine with all of that, i went in knowing these things, I've been playing mmos longer than i would like to admit lol. But this is really horrible, i have a master pack and i cant do anything at all in game because of lag, which is unacceptable to be because i partially paid to be able to participate in CBT, and this is hardly participating.. :/ I've tried changing graphic settings, still no change. I tried changing channels, nothing... The new server i tried isn't as bad but its still pretty laggy too. I sincerely hope that the lag doesn't just get worse and worse as the beta weekends roll along with more people joining in as time goes on over the next couple months.
Are you a NA player or EU. If you are NA then your lag is a matter with your internet service provider or a matter of you being far away from where the servers are stationed.
When the game releases hopefully it will have more than 1 server and you will get to test out witch lags least.
Also if you are from EU then it should be obvious that there will be lag since you are playing from Europe on US servers. That's along way to cross even as a digital signal.
Im in the US. Oregon to be exact, so as for being too far from them, thats the whole reason their servers are in texas so they are in the middle of everybody, so that cant be it. as for it being my internet, i highly doubt it because none of my other games lag, my connection is fine too. as i said earlier, i play on the TW server, and compared to these servers with Blade & Soul Power leveling, i get less skill delay playing there without anything like WTFast. so i am completely dumbfounded.
thats fine. however like i said in the OP, this isn't just a closed beta bug, its persisted on from alpha, which is why i didn't post it in this section since its just CBT bugs, so i hope this doesn't just get missed or left alone.
