The issue has been solved as far as I know. Ping is low, FPS is back up to average.
The damage done to the micro community in the servers has already been done though. I hope that moving forward better communication and more transparency will be a major goal for Funcom. Three days of being unable to play is an eternity in gaming standards these days.
Edit: Current state of 1500
Overnight you have changed official 1500 from Eastern to Pacific with NO warning, and completely ignored all threads about the abnormal ping and low server FPS all day. Did you think no one would notice the change? The entire server has been suffering all day because of this, with no response from you. The server that my friends, the friends I have made playing, and I have been on since LAUNCH and you decide to oust us from the server with no warning, no way to recoup losses?
Absolutely ridiculous and unprofessional behavior, Funcom. I expected better.
Further, this is not the ONLY server you did this to!
