For many of us, the weekend is the ideal time for gaming – there are no real responsibilities, you don’t have to pretend to be sick to avoid work, and all of our friends are online. Players hoping to get in a weekend of play in Cryptic Studios games over the weekend, however, were met with severe network lag, login troubles, and a host of other connection issues, which had the teams behind the games working furiously to correct the problem.
The last update on the situation as of this writing came yesterday evening, with community moderator Zebular informing players that the issues appear to be with Cryptic’s ISP rather than with any of the company’s hardware. No discussion has yet been started about potential compensation. It’s an unpleasant reality of dealing with online games, and we can only hope that these issues will be swiftly resolved today.
