    On ps3 NA sieges have been getting really bad, enemies not showing up, buildings there, not there, and really bad connectivity at them as well. Almost to the point where if you have been on for 15 minutes or longer, or teleported too many times before you find the siege, there is a 90% chance you will not finish it before disconnecting. Expeditions are bad also, was in a group with 2 others last night, enemies not showing up, rubber banding, saw people in the group getting stuck halfway in the floor or floating in midair.

    It's frequent everywhere (open and instanced) everything except the player freezes, then catches up a few seconds later(players, npc's and enemies). This includes swapping weapons/vehicles or anything intractable. The amount of players nearby doesn't seem to change the actual lag, just constant phasing in and out.

    I'm going to reply to this as well, since this is the ONLY time I've seen a dev comment on any issue in the game to date.

    * Where are you experiencing lag?
    EVERYWHERE. Literally everywhere, all the time, constantly. All areas, all missions, all dungeons... everything.

    * What kind of lag are you experiencing? (rubber banding, ability lag, ect)
    Rubberbanding. Freezing in mid action, then said action happening from 1 second to 1 minute later. Again this applies to everything, and the more players nearby the worse it gets.

    Kill lag. I can completely empty a monster's life and shields and they just stand there, then blink to another location. Sometimes they die, sometimes they gain back the life it showed me draining and continue to attack.

    Vehicle lag. Doing any of the time trials in this game has been basically pointless and depends mainly on luck. Rings will not register you going through them, not appear at all, or reappear after registering as being passed. This combines with motion lag, where your wheels are spinning but you're not moving, and steering lag where you suddenly are unable to control which direction you're going and hit something or go into the water.

    * What platform are you on?
    I play on PC, a high spec gaming laptop, NA. Here are my specs.

    * Are there many other players around you when you are lagging?
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I often play alone, and the lag still persists at all times.

    I must stress this. THE LAG IS NOT A SOMETIMES THING. It is persistent, constant, and has been since I started playing several months ago. It HAS gotten worse in the last few months, to the point of me envisioning a really hot room with mounds of tangled cables on the floor coated in dust, plugged haphazardly into servers that went out of date decades ago that occasionally arc electricity or shoot bursts of sparks. The fact that people who have been playing since the beginning say this is how is has been since they started fills me with dread. A friend recently bought me the DLC as a birthday present, and I really like the game; please tell me you're going to do something about this and soon? It's far, far past insane.

    NPC's running in place. Not able to change weps or interact with the environment, menus and map not responsive These 'lag spikes' will happen every few minutes during a busy major, to once in 15 minutes when doing solo/small group stuff, like expos, coops, etc. I've seen spikes happen just standing still poking around my inventory. When a 'spike' happens, it can last anywhere from 3 seconds, all the way to 20 or 30 secs.

    We're usually on teamspeak playing and we all see the spikes happen at the same time. (Thousands of miles, different ISP's, and in some cases, continents, separate us)
    They say most of your brain shuts down on the Defiance forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.

    * Where are you experiencing lag?
    Everywhere on the game
    * What kind of lag are you experiencing? (rubber banding, ability lag, ect) the map lags and has no icons, monsters lagging despite being shot to hell.. then bounce then die. Swapping weapons doesn't happen then suddenly does. Reloading is the same.
    Movement is erratic, , Vehicles don't rez, then you can't get out of them.

    * What platform are you on?

    Just tried playing today. Couldn't get my weapon to switch. Talking in chat got garbled somehow; that's never happened before. Enemies were murdering me, while my bullets literally went through them without damage. Was playing with a friend and he got in his car and drove for a good two minutes before getting out without having actually gone anywhere. We eventually had to stop and try something else.

    Spawning into game with red spikes, stims, nades. No shield and it wont regenerate.
    Fast traveling has a 15 second wait time. Same delay with opening inventory, checking contracts.
    Waiting for reloads, car spawning, getting into said car. lol
    Enemies still damaging you when the have no health...then others taking no damage at all.

    This is even happening in Thorn Liro, and its always stable in there...

    Critting out soon follows all the above.
