Anyone thinking of getting this, don't; The lag is getting more insane.
First off, I love the game. Besides major balencing issues, it's an increadibly fun game to play or screw around in. The funny moments that can come from a chase where everyones just running around in circles is totally worth it.
What isn't worth it is the crazy lag that Ronimo thinks is okay, especially for a MOBA. Typically, a game will have everyone's ping up around 200+, 9 out of 10 games, and around 300 4 out of those 10. For those of you that don't check pings, since most games actually attempt to handle it, 200 is when you start getting server lag, minor stuff, stuttering FPS, awkward hit confirms, that stuff. 300 is when everyone is warpping around the map, and getting random hits and kills. We have had somewhere around five, maybe six patches since I bought the game, and if anything, the lags gotten worse. The devs seem more interested in putting out new characters, which unbalence the game further, and skins, than fix the obvious lag issue. And before you fanboys out there start attacking me-- when the ping meter his 999 ever few seconds, that means that someone's ping has gone -passed- the maximum it can track, and you can't say that's reasonable.
The major issue is some brilliant idiot thought it'd be a good idea to put in a 'worldwide' and 'half way around the world' option in the matchmaking options, which overrules the more sensible 'local/region only' settings. That is to say, if I try and join a match local only with my buddy, someone on the otherside of the planet can just go 'lol, think I'll troll today -sets matchmaking to world-', and now everyone's stuck with absurd lag. If they'd just remove those options, or better yet, do what most FPS and other multiplay games do, and set a ping limit to kick someone with silly high ping, then the game would work smoothly. Until then, I have to say this is a broken game, don't buy it until they fix it.
