    Hello Everyone,

    We are publishing some movement changes to TC1 in a few moments. This is designed to help players with low connection speeds improve their movement. Please let us know if you have any issues.

    Thanks Everyone!

    I'm sure this is at least part of the speed hacking fix, yes. A lot of the whole speed hacking issue has to do with people with older and slower computers and connections not being able to keep up with those with newer computers and faster connections.

    Well I am normally at 120 to 160 ms and ran around on test for a few and the movement SEEMS smoother and less jumpy but sense that's not where i normally play its hard to tell!

    I'm seeing the same movement on TC1 that I see on Chessie. Getting a few lag spikes every few seconds.

    I think I can categorically say no to that. I think this is the real deal. Most of us probably won't notice any difference. The ones that will hopefully notice a big difference are those unfortunate souls still stuck on dialup.

    The scroll on first log in says the test center has publish 64. Is this right or is it really publish 65?

    I ping 180-200 on East Coast shards. Not sure where TC1 server is located but i love this change! seems that my client (2D) isnt updating alot of crap while im running.

    Congrats for the improvement!!

    Fricking awesome!!!

    I just had a run with someone who normally runs so much faster on GL...I actually kept up! ALL THE TIME around luna...yew...haven...everywhere we ran!

    A few skips but great...also noted it didnt seem to help my overcasting due to ping but nice work!

    Edit: I play in UK!

    As someone who ususally pings around 300 I have to say that it works brilliantly. I have never moved so fast in all my years here.

    I ping around 30 to 50ms to most west coast shards and I am very fast already and when I tried to run around on TC1 it actually felt nice and smooth and there's really no noticeable lags when I was running around.
