    So hows the lag?

    Post by TonyDamajer on Fri Aug 24, 2012 4:32 pm

    Hey fellas!

    I havent pruchased the PTD edition yet and Im not sure if I should switch to PC.

    Ive read that they removed the Dragonheadstone and BB glitches, which is a big positive for me, becouse those glitches reduced the value of hard-to-obtain items to zero.

    The only thing, thats left for me to know is, if the online play has improved becouse the lag was imo a big issue on consoles.

    So... for those proud owners of the PTD version:
    What experience have you made with the online play?
    Is it less laggy? Better grouping options? less failed summons? How's the new pvp stuff?
    Whatever seems new to you, please tell me!

    Thanks in advance

    I don't actually have it but I hear the loading screens are within 5 seconds on average. Might just be exaggeration though. I would think if it loaded that fast though, that the lag would be far better. Also heard that Blight town doesn't drop in frames either.

    -Loading screens will be dependant upon your computer's specs only.
    -Online Lag will maintain to be approximately the same as consoles.
    -Lag from the game itself however should be better (ie Blighttown) assuming a decent computer is being used. However at this stage the game still has a 30FPS cap on it (As does the console versions).

    Unfortunately summoning and PvP aren't all to great at the moment due to a combination of things.
    -Firstly, obviously it is new to PC and so a lot of the community is focussing on PvE, and slowly progressing due to it being their first run through.
    -Secondly, the PC seems to be suffering from connectivity issues between players just as the Consoles were during/after launch. This will hopefully be resolved (To be a bit better) in a future patch.
