PS4 Blackwater Blade Lag Free?

Hello. I was playing on PS4 BB tonight and I noticed a couple of things. First there was little to no lag even though I personally competed in 2 major sieges in prime time with all 3 factions present.

Second, I couldn't help but notice that the combat was fun. It was REALLY fun. It felt like 1.5 and before. Back when skill and resource management really mattered.

My question is this. I have always thought large groups and people spamming aoe abilities was what was causing major lag. After last night I can't help but wonder why. Why ZOS can't you fix the lag in veteran PvP. People were using all abilities including proxy, caltrops, Bats, and even meteor, however as I stated in the outset there was little to no lag.

Really surprised and honestly thrilled with the performance of non get and it gives me hope that one day ZOS can get this fixed and we can have the game we dream of.

    Same thing with Azura now.. These campaigns are "empty" because they have removed CP from them.

    On PS4, it feels like everyone that used to play on Azura and Moon Cursed Blade moved to Haderus.. The lag is crazy and sometime it takes 15-20 minutes to just get in the campaign.

    Not true. Campaign was nowhere near empty however still no lag. I don't know population numbers but there were multiple large groups running.

    Interesting...

    Well, I can't truly speak for Blackwater, as I haven't played in this campaign in weeks.
    But Azura Star is pretty much empty all the time now and it used to be the most popular server.

    I know a lot of people that also moved from Blackwater to another campaign because of the no CP.

    Anyhow, server population is one thing.. but lag caused because you have 100 players from every faction fighting at the same keep is another. These will lag no matter what unfortunately. I try to stay a bit away from these conflicts.

    So, are you saying you were lag free even in very large conflict?

    Yes sir that is exactly what i am saying. 3 faction fights with at least 30+ players from each faction on screen. It was epic.

    @Killa4hire89, update the thread, curious to see if the "non-lag" persists...

    Passives are the reason Vet have a lot of passives that go to near by friendlies. My Nightblade lands a crit and everyone near me get a crit chance bonus. That is reapplied every time I or another Nightblade crits plus all the only background passives non vets don't have as many and no CP don't have much happening so you have the whole server of computing power for like three raids tops.

    So, are you saying you were lag free even in very large conflict?

    On Azura PC EU I had yesterday at prime time a battle at roe lumber. 10-20 reds hiding in the tower, around 50 yellows sitting in front of the tower + waves of 20-30 reds attacking over and over again coming from alessia. ping was <200, fps never below 20.

    Battles with around 100 ppl my ping is between 200-400, battles with around 200 ppl I had only one (whole blue, red and yellow faction was fighting for the last emp keep at roe), ping was around 400 most of the time with only couple of secs at 850 for the final fight inside the inner keep.

    Even in BWB I had battles with 50-100 ppl and never a ping over 200. Even before TG.

    Its not pure numbers. Its the way certain ppl abuse the mechanics.

    I find it interesting because prior to TG When I played on BWB it was always laggy, like Azuras. However now little to no lag. In getting on in about 30 so i'll update again today.
