I only experienced lag on the first day and nothing not expected for a stress test. Day 2 and 3 were lag free for me.

I didn't have much lag either. Was fine for me and was surprisingly fun. The only problem I have with the game is that fighting elites and bosses in a group gets far too chaotic and melee players got owned big time. I like the spell effects and stuff but it gets to the point that too you can't tell what's going on.

I think phasing stuff like WoW would work well and only allow the first X number of people to enter the phased area with the random event keeping it from becoming chaotic.

Haha... in the more massive battles, yes, my frame rate did drop... but I didn't experience much in terms of server lag.

@Tr10wn I had framerate issues sure because the games not optimised yet but I didn't get any lag tbh, I suspect you don't know the difference like most people. The game lived up to my rather massive expectations enough to buy a new pc for it just so I can play it on max settings!

I'm considering it too! I'm stoked!

I would be considering it if I could afford it, hopefully one of these betas are optimized so I can see if I *NEED* to upgrade or can just scrape by until I can upgrade.
