Will LAG ever get fixed?


I take it back AGAIN - it seems like lag was fixed for awhile and the game worked really well, however the past couple weeks, it has come storming back and seems to occur almost every game.  Anyone else having this problem again?

4/21/13:  I take it back - looks like lag has been fixed in the past day or so at least for me.  Thanks Z2.

Has anyone noticed that since the v5.1 update, the lag for VS matches has become a substantial problem?  Previously, lag would pop up now and then and your opponent would jump/disappear/hover as the Z2 servers labored to keep up the pace.  Now though, it seems that lag occurs for every single VS match without exception.  The lag occurs differently than it has in the past also.  Now, it seems that the lag especially shows up when you make a kill - there can be a several second delay between missile impact and your opponent blowing up.  There have been times when my opponent will then even get a shot or two at me during this lag time before he explodes! 

Also, the agility class planes seem to have a particularly hard time with this lag - if I fly a weapons class plane, it seems that I have a much easier time hitting agility class planes.  Most matches tend to be missile hurling slug fests, shooting at stuttering and jumping images of my opponent.

Curious how many of you have been experiencing this same issue?  Hopefully it will be fixed soon, as it is seriously degrading the quality of VS game play.

  4. Yes, very serious!
    1) Almost immediately to be killed at the start of the game by Lancers or Bisnovat.
    2) Players can shoot me when my Thresher is at the back of their plane!!

    Crazy game!

  5. I have not played vs mode because busy with survival and collecting 1-2 Tapjoy coins 5-6 coins per day). I figured I can buy Stilleto and medals with the blue coins I collect. No flurry videos lately and it's getting harder to collect coins. I hope I'll have enough by next week...

  7. I am thinking about buying either the cobalt or the sentinel. Cobalt is limited time and costs less. Sentinel is higher priced but it might be better. Can someone make a recommendation of which one to buy?

    1. Cobalt. Agility matters, and lock range might not be as important as you imagined it to be.

  9. Does anybody know when the Spectre is coming. Otherwise I am going to wait for the Stiletto next week.

  10. I was saving up for the Stilletto for next week, but accidentally bought the Cobalt. Now I need to figure out how to fly Weapon Class planes. Or, does anyone know how to get a refund for blue coins?

  12. so lag seems to be fixed, since my agility planes fly much smoother. although the new gold coin system is terrible. why does earning them from missions and matches have to be by chance.

  13. Can anyone tell me why there is no featured plane for this week? After the stupid anniversary give away, Z2 seems to be drunk and lazy to push weekly plane.

  16. I think that part of the issue is that this is an international game and they really don't attempt to try to get someone close to you to play with (close=fewer hops). I'm a big Co-Op Survival Mode player and has anyone else who plays SM a lot noticed how many planes we get as partners are D-7 Wartusks. That just seems odd and it makes me wonder if that's the generic fill in when you're playing someone from a different region. Any thoughts?
