    Launching a new episode while the US servers are still experiencing issues would really be problematic and unfortunate.

    I think it has been around a month since players have reported multiple issues server-related. This matter not only affects QoL as a player, but also combat and performance for players and groups.

    Here's a list of some of the issues encountered by me or people I actively play with;

    Delayed power castings, cooldowns and sound effects (severe punishment sound effect for example). Delayed damage out and clipping, delayed counters and BBs, and even mechanics are delayed in some instances (bringing the ball from the portal to the aspect of hecate, in Cursed Themyscira final boss or even the timing of the blue pools' damage on the second boss fight).

    To put it shortly: The game feels extremely laggy/delayed and excessively unenjoyable atm.

    Having seen some potential from the Hall of Justice raid and its seemingly engaging mechanics, it would be completely overshadowed by these server related problems.

    I have seen multiple threads related to this particular matter and none of them have been acknowledged by staff members, regardless of having dozens of upvotes.

    We want to be able to enjoy the game and play it normally, but we simple cannot. Some sort of communication would be greatly appreciated by A LOT more people than you think.

    I was thinking along the same lines. There's always lag when an episode launches mostly due to to a huge spike in players logged in. Generally there's nothing that can be done about that. But I'm worried that lag is gonna get added on top of the atrocious lag we currently have. The game is largely unplayable for me 90% of the time, at least at the level I typically plays at and pretty much need to to run any difficult content. Add a 1000% bump in server activity and I can't even imagine what that will be like.

    I’ve noticed a gap in various mechanics even in simple ones on the Spring seasonal with the pods being slower. I’m using PS4 client. I dunno if things will get worse with an uptick of players and more advanced mechanics but I guess we’ll see. There’s also the chance a lot of returning players will think DCUO is ready for PS5 and Xbox series S and will be disappointed with that.

    They seem to cut corners. Add servers when population spikes (or around the times of), and skimp on them during the other times. Or something. Always seemed to be like that.

    Just delete the game. Boycott it. We will not play under these circumstances anymore. Tired of this.
