I played for a substantial time friday and saturday morning when the servers were working pretty well. near evening est saturday night, the servers just dropped dead. It was simply unplayable due to the amount of server lag. Flying my HG III, i was getting roughly 15k pp average per battle before the server lag hit. after it hit, i struggled to make 5k pp. Oh well, at least i had good games friday and satuday. Still a serious shame since i really wanted to get top 5 in every weekend event. Pretty sure u can count me out for this one though :'(

Me, personally, gunning for 1 chevron, loved the lag.  It was so much fun.  Watching planes fly backwards and then warping forwards was just a blast.  

 

It gives me an excuse for my lame performance.  Just want a measly 500 gold.  10 minute battle with 0 Cap points, OK by me, just gimme my gosh darned 500 gold and I will be on my way.

 

You people need to stop playing because you are ruining the event.  Go back to Ships and let us Planes players have some reasonable response time, gosh darn it all.  


Saving my last two forum warnings since July 31, 2019.

Meanwhile desert and Nue have minimum scores higher than my maximum. I was never a good heavy pilot but my performance was embarrassing :hiding:

 

Only had two games with magical teleporting targets so I can't even blame that

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Why is there a lag now?  Is it related to the patch for the event?

RNGeesus is so Almighty in this game.  You either have it on your side or you don't.  I had a 1 Vs 1 tonight where my opponent never entered the field.  Oh well, it happens.  But his bots proceeded to kick the living you-know-what out of my bots.  Despite having, by far, the highest score in the battle, it was an absolute stomping loss.

 

Go MM!

We won't know unless the real powers tell us.  Don't hold your breath.

 

I should add that I believe the high number of no shows in the battles are somehow related to this sudden intense lag problem.  Maybe it's just coincidence?

Between a severe Migraine and server lag.. I doubt I even placed. My min-max average across the small # of games I played was too low. It doesn't matter if you squeak out a couple of insanely good capture point games if the others are all only 400-700 and you lag so much and your head hurts so bad you just.. give up.

*shrug*

Congratulations to those able to slug through the lag. I salute all of You who did, both for skill and perseverance.

Weekend was a joke. Lag killed it . Servers can only handle 3-4 humans at a time with the over abundance of bots or lag fest happens, game is losing players faster than it can find them. It was a good game at one time a long long long  time ago. Please no more events that may attract a few players and overload the hamster powered servers.

I am just getting burned out on the game I flew a for a bit and then logged of for some Assassins Creed Odyssey.

I do not even think I got in ten games

I dunno...

single servers are rarely used for just one small client

they may be sharing it with another company that is having ridiculously high traffic spikes

maybe russian black fridays... hehe rye bread and black onions, mmm

us political email downloads? doh

or maybe just the ol' software stepping on it's own jimmy... ow

tho,

I bet they get it fixed SOON


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Spent the weekend going for max cap points. I was doing fairly well in that regard. Averaged 10k PP games.

Which is a very weird definition of "average".
Unrelated tangent

  Then those specced out Ki's started showing up. 
right about when the server lag hit.
i dont think i got in the 10 battle minimum for either side.

I expected better from myself. And i can blame work calling me in this weekend but still ... I am disappointed. :(

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

Yup, it's really bad.
Just flew a couple of battles, Some soundfx drop after a minute or 5 (MG & engine sounds)
Very difficult to score hits on aircraft

Daily Missions still not updating and lag is through the roof at times.  Maybe it's their weekend?  Or annual Xmas Party?  (lasts for a month).

I didn't play at all this weekend.  Started playing a new game that I am enjoying so far.  Will see how long it holds my attention.

While I had some battles with among the most severe lag I've seen, overall it was good enough that I played the most battles I ever have in this series of Events & half of those with the Ki-102, successfully landing that big 57mm a lot & often at decently long range (I have the range bumped to 692m), which means it wasn't very bad overall.

 

With a bunch of the competition having not played/not played much I'm starting to feel more confident that I'll pull that top 5 rank afterall :)


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.
