Since the recent update, I am having the same lagging problem. It happened since 7th of January 8.00am (GMT +8)
SPT will be 4.00pm on the 6th of January.
I am from sector 110
My ID is 3625540
It take a lot of time to load the map, and the worse is when I am engaging in a battle, it takes over 20 seconds to load into the battle screen. Worse, sometimes it just can't get into the battle screen or when I'm in the battle screen I see no ships. Sometimes even if I manage to see the ships, they will just move toward each other without firing. When I refresh the game, the battle has over. It is a real pain cause I could not kill higher level drac or get a higher level mine. The situation get worse till today.
Before the update, everything is smooth, but after the recent update, I could no longer control my fleel during a battle. I notice that freestylepnk is having the same problem as well. I read his Thread at http://forums.kixeye.com/threads/153875-Connection-issues-in-battle-amp-map
Dear GM, if you are reading this, please tell me what to do to solve this problem. Thank you.
