I'm curious if anyone has insight or shares this experience. My settings for the game are under-set to medium-low. My rig (gpu/processor/memory) is significantly above the required specs and I have a tested 11M/sec internet connection. In solo play I don't see choppy framerates (except in certain towns) - though SotA does not have anywhere near the awesome sharp framerates I get in, say, Neverwinter or WoW or Tera or pretty much any other game. But the second I play in a party my performance usually becomes so bad as to make the game unplayable (eg. swinging at enemies that have moved away, trying to use evasive maneuvers but the delay makes it futile, etc.). It's always been this way for me, especially when a lot of enemies fill up a room. How common is this experience in party mode? While there are a couple of other major dissatisfactions I have (deck system), this one is the biggest that has prevented me from logging in - as terrible game performance isn't worth fighting with.
