I haven't created a new character in some time, so I don't know how long this has been going on. When I go to the character creations screen, there's an EXTREME degree of latency. I'm seeing about 1 fps in the character animation, and extremely long response times when clicking any character options (faction, gender, race, etc). It's making it all but impossible to create a new character, at the moment.
This happens on the main character creation screen. It's slightly less severe on the foundry character creation screen.
