    Have they added cosmetic changes to the map?

    Have they added some cosmetic changes to the map?

    For instance on the hill opposite The Crater There is now a huge rock which you can stand on, and it's actually a good spot to have duels...

    That rock wasn't there yesterday. So are small things being added here and there on the map. Why?

    Shouldn't you be concentrating on fixing some of the game breaking issues like lag?

    Hi Chocolatelover

    We did not change this, not was there a patch yesterday to have changed it. However we will make cosmetic changes to the map. Im glad you think its a good dueling spot though.

    Like in most industries, not everyone can work on a single problem. Lag almost always requires an engineer to fix. Artists would make cosmetic changes like you mention and will continue to do their work independent of the engineers working on lag. It wouldn't make sense to tell them to stop, or work on something they dont have control over to fix.

    Oh come on. It would be fun to see a texture artist or community manager try and fix lag issues.
    Just sit them in front of all that code and hardware and yell "Fix it or your fired!".

    Thank you for responding so fast........ I never noticed that rock before there in that spot as I've driven there tons of times for Arkfalls and stuff. I remember grass being there before.. That's why I thought the rock was a new addition. It is a fantastic spot for duels. I did a few there with swords..

    And apologies if I sounded a bit off about the lag issues. It just seems to be one of the niggles that everyone brings up in zone chat..

    something to look into then, major ark breaks. with DM or mutents. when the drop ships come in to drop off the enamy troops. lag increases while there on screen. as soon as thay leave screen lag drops and everythings back to normel.

    thought i would point that out maybe someone can look into it.

    >.> also theres been strang rocks croping up randomly across the hole bay. someone sometime back found one in the water near shadus that was not there befor. o.o
