There are a dozen posts and screen shots for a couple months now about this issue. It happens to SOME players across most shards. 2 hops from the server I get 240 ms ping with 10-100% packet loss randomly through out the day. Whats funny is, why it effects some players and not all I dont know. Too many times have I come back from the lag to see a storm of damage above my head and a ghost waiting. Cheats, not enough content, old graphics etc. I seemed to work through and keep playing. But I won't pay for 1999 internet performance. If they don't fix this problem before my month is up, ill cancel my 2 accounts and just write it off as unplayable. There is no reason to get 120 skills and great geat etc. When every 15 or 20 minutes you 1-5 second lag spikes. I have run UO trace and trace routed/polled the server during these lag spikes. It's always the same hop. Folks have screenshot it, but no developers comment. What else can I do.
