I’m having the same issues. The game is unplayable after the update. Huge lag spikes at random, game crashes to Xbox desktop. My follower thrall doesn’t follow me correctly, she just teleports to my location every so often, rarely engages in combat. I’m being spawned in the desert. This is the thanks I get for purchasing a DLC? A patch that breaks the game for me? Come on Funcom. This is absurd.
PS The game is extremely fun but this is why “decay” is a dipstick feature for a game with this level of incompetence in it’s development and maintenance team. When the game becomes unplayable we lose our stuff due to no fault of our own. If you’re going to have a game with decay, purge, etc, you’re going to have to show some competency when developing updates and expansions, etc. It’s not like an MMO where we just lose playing time. We lose our playing time today plus any time we invested in the things that decay/die or are destroyed.
