may be the lag due to there r too many chars in Columbus Server database.
well we all know that FoK means alts like ppl all on servers have hundreds of alts they dont use.....
but nobody will delete anyway...
But how should that be reason for lag? i mean its not like the database is that big since 5 weeks... Did you decrease the amount of database you can handle?
as mentioned above i dont thik that suddenly 5 weeks ago we decided in colombus to make 1000 alts so its something you did if that is the case. Can you just for one time simple try to see that its your fault (IGG i mean) and not the players or the internet or the unicorns??
IMHO its not about char count in database(selects from db works same no matter when u run them, but db works badly when u run lot of selects or unquality ones). There is some moments when network delay is very bad and i believe its happen when active players went home and turn game on and then 'lag' started. IMHO there is problem with network traffic which server cant deal with. Game usually started to lag(bad network delay) when are evening in europe. Atleast for me. And sometimes in mornings when ppl drink their coffes before work/scool/etc.
