I am downloading another MMORPG because UO is virtually unplayable with the current lag again tonight. I actually ping faster to all Western Shards (Baja/Pacific/Napa etc - 100 each or so) and even Europa and Drachs than I do to great lakes (219). I live in CHICAGO. I have a cable internet connection with a current speed test showing 13mbs download and 3.5mbs upload. I should be flying around in the game yet I take....one.....step......at.....a.....time. If you cannot fix the connectivity to your games you are going to lose subscribers. I do not pay $$ to simply sit around my house and sort bods because my connection to your servers is so bad I can't leave my house for fear of death. Who know - maybe blessing in disguise - maybe this game I'm D/L will be better than UO and I can just move on. I'm tired of dealing with a game that is being managed on a $.50 budget. Fix it or give it up.
