    Can we get an ETA for when the unplayable lag is going to be fixed? Or a revert and removal of the patch until the lag can be properly addressed?

    I would almost bet that it has something to do with the movement changes of boats !!!!

    lol okay seriously What is probably going on is they have some construct the program goes in to when you move your boat to update its position in the world, well instead of it doing it once for the whole boat, they probably got it going though the construct for every tile the boat takes up so every time you move your boat if your boat is 10 times its got to make 10 updates to some database as where your current position is in the world, Now times that by 100-300 players constantly moving around at sea and you end up with the database having to deal with 3000 updates a second instead of 300. Just my guess /shrug

    This isn't just boats. The major issue is running around earlier on a dead shard, I was moving at half my normal speed.

    the funny thing though is that i did not notice any of these movement issues with my characters that were in place from Origin on the beta test server.

    Very uncertain.

    Are people on upgraded account experiencing the same issues? Or is it just non upgraded accts?

    I think this is probably the biggest issue that has arisen from the new expansion. Stiflingly bad lag deters people from pvping or engaging in high end pvm. It's bad for the thrill seekers on both sides of the moongate.

    Europa was almost lag free for me.
    Though was in no house or boat.
