Terrible, Terrible Lag and Rubberbanding

O.K.
I've been playing quite a bit of Champs lately, after a bit of an absence. I last played about 8 months ago. Then, over Christmas, the game became completely unplayable for me the few times I tried to log on for the Event. I can now get into the Game, and even play reasonably well, but I am plagued by terrible Lag and Rubberbanding issues constantly. I have tried raising and lowering the settings (my rig far outstripps anything this Game needs and my internet connection is substantially better than required as well, I can also play much more demanding games at much higher settings). I used to be able to play well, without all these problems with a much weaker machine. It makes no difference at all if I play on the absolute highest or absolute lowest settings and no other game seems affected.

Is there any solution that has been brought up in the last year or so that I may have missed? I've erased and redownloaded the game both through Arc and Steam, tried all of the Proxies and none, turned On Demand Patching on and off, forced verified, verified Local Cache, all the usual suspects, and it has no effect.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Oh, I know to expect a bit of that, but it's CONSTANT now. Like a continuous Memory Leak in just about everything.
    I've been playing since the Pre-Launch Headstart Week and have actually lost count of my characters.
    In all that time the only cases where it has been THIS bad have been Server Wide Technical Issues. And I cannot find anything in the Bug Sections about that.

    I've numerous memory leaks in the past week of play, plus more SNRs than usual.

    The memory leak issue is really bad for me.

    It hasn't been continuous for me. It has been happening more than is normal... and when it does happen it's really bad. This has greatly effected my play experience since I am yet again leveling a character with 10 Constitution, and only stuns and knock ups to defend themselves with.

    No lag.
    No rubberbanding.
    Keep losing server connection.

    Holy *******..
    I take all that back....Except the 'Losing server connection'....
    Was actually quite funny just running around, jumping, activating powers, without touching the keyboard or mouse..
    Ok, it wasn't funny. At all.

    It wouldn't be so bad, but I'm leveling up that new Archtype.
    I actually got squashed by Mr. Gemini.
    When I was LvL 26.
    And in full ArmorDillo Gear.
    I went from fine to surrounded by like 50 clones and 1/4 health from one frame to the next because of that Lag.
    I still managed to down him just before I was overwhelmed, but it's the principle of the thing :biggrin:

    I've posted a link to this Thread in the Bug Reports Forum.

    The anniversary event was launched recently for STO which caused quite a lot of lag and rubberbanding. Supposedly this was to have resolved itself over the course of a few days as we were told by the Devs.
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .
