When I start in the big campaign early in the morning it doesn’t lag at all then gradually it starts lagging over time. Whatever coding or anything, maybe the population is not the problem but it does seem to reach a certain point where there’s just too much happening.
I don’t know why you all jump to saltiness so fast but if you have been playing the same game as me you’d be tired of waiting for an actual real improvement. The fact is it just won’t happen. I want to play the mechanics of pvp combat with fluidity “right now” because I’m paying to play this game. If anyone is having fun in this mess at this moment then be my guest and keep playing. As I said there is no other option than lag for cyrodill on the consoles because there is no other campaigns. I understand the second answer sounds biased and for that I apologize
