I just read The Mittani's...er, I mean Goonswarm's... damn, I mean CSM 6's letter posted on CCP Diagora's blog post. They think the best hope for beating lag is to institutionalize it. I don't mean put it in the nut-farm, though that might be an apt analogy. I mean it seems they think they'll beat the lag monster by creating lag in a controlled manner. Okay, to me this admits defeat without actually acknowledging it. Everyone will lag but everyone will lag equally so it's all good? No, it's not all good. Fights will take much longer to finish. I have faith that will start an entirely new line of whining. But if by some chance it doesn't, and it gets all those null-sec noise makers to shut up, I'm all for it. It will do absolutely nothing to enrich, enhance or provide anything of value to the silent majority's game play beyond greasing the squeaky wheels so we don't have to listen to them whine all the time. If that happens it'll be a win-win-win. Then maybe CCP can get back to developing a MMO instead of running a kindergarten.
