Here's a simple idea:
Look at the number of people who preordered the game.
Scale your fucking server and bandwidth to that number.
Come the fuck on. Very few features turned on and STILL this much lag. This isn't suppose to be a beta phase. This is where people who paid money get to play.
We can't even tell where our new tribe radius is because of the lag.
Either fix this or cancel the launch and give folks refunds because, as a company, you are really messing up. Unless this is an intentional attempt to thin the gamer population.
I've tried to be patient and tolerent and everything else. Tried to make excuses for an indie company with a great idea for a game. But as a customer, paying money to a company, I'm nearing the end of my ropes.
Fix the lag guys. Your current formulas regarding number of players vs bandwidth/server is VERY FUCKING OFF THE MARK.
