It's frustrating for sure.
The mob was highlighted with a red name so even I'm seeing it as my targeted enemy that nobody else should be able to attack. I just don't understand how the server could mess that up at all. It's not like anybody was remotely nearby.
I see a lot of people telling others here how much this reminds them of FFXI's launch, but maybe I'm missing something as I don't remember half of these weird laggy glitches when I bought FFXI the week it was released.
Not trying to sound like an ***, but by FFXI's launch, do you mean, the Japanese version of the game, which came out almost a full 2 years before it went to other countries like NA? Cause, we got a much-patched, 1st Expansion already added game, not a launch game.
The game, as it originally launched, did have quite a few issues. A lot. That was why we got it here so much later.
But on the topic: yeah, took me a while to figure it was really awful lag. I found myself waiting for my Leve's to start, after I've initiated them. Or, I found myself frozen by the Aetherite for a minute or 2 before being able to move. I didn't R0 or anything, and far as I can recall, I always had a green ping circle.
