    Still seeing the rubber banding. But I did have a day or two where it wasn't flinging me around a map or getting me exploded.

    Then a winter storm drifted in with sleet and below-freezing conditions. I had stayed off the game for a couple of days between the last "calm period" and now, and I immediately hit ping spikes when I do.

    But I'm thinking weather in my local area is aggravating things. Even my ISP (Verizon) is agreeing with the potential idea that part of my issues might be weather-related.

    Kael made an announcement about this:
    Hey folks,

    We've been looking into the lag and rubber banding issues in the game, and determined the cause. Unfortunately, the cause was a fix we'd put in place to fix an entirely different bug - that Captains were getting their skills invalidated by claiming Tier 6 reputations. Because the lag is a larger issue throughout the game, we've decided to remove the previous fix as of a few minutes ago. This means that until our next update, where we'll be instituting a fix that should solve both problems, you should avoid claiming a Tier 6 Reputation. We apologize for the inconvenience - the fact that these two things are even related is mind boggling, but that's coding for you.

    It's getting snowy and icy on my end as well, and in the absence of anything that disproves it, I'm inclined to agree that that also plays a role.

    Working in Customer Services is a lot like a Michael Bay or J J Abrams film. The story is all over the place, its contradicts its own continuity, it can be hours of mindless entertainment or boring subplot, with lots of noise, explosions and action, and is something you don't fancy viewing for a 2nd time 🤣🙉🤭
