I would like to present an idea that will actually help reduce some lag issues for some people.
Since I have been playing this game, I have noticed that during hours of the "Town ShareHolders meetings" annoucements, the game becomes really laggy. This is because of the scrolling marquee that comes across the bottom and when combined with subtitle spam... It only makes the lag worse. As a result I die a lot as I am sure many others do as well, they just don't know why. So during the time these messeges are constantly being annouced, I find it hard to level or even farm. So I don't.
I have a simple solution to this problem.
In the Menu > Settings panel > Caption Information(Dropbox), You should add the option "Off". So you can turn off the stockholders meetings and Stock Market Annoucements. Some of us are too new at this game to even care about the stock market or shareholders...
This would result in less lag deaths.
Before people a ssume it's my computer that sucks. It's not my computer, trust me.
Also Note that I want the Subtitle Feature to remain, I am not asking for that to be removed. I'm simply asking to be able to turn the annoucements off that is all.
While I am thinking about it. The reason I am posting this Is because quite frankly I am tired of hitting Alt + 1 to open the settings panel, and then clicking on the dropbox, and selecting one of them to make the annoucements go away!

Nah it's ur super lame computer. Mine blows chunks and mine doesn't lagg so yours must reallly suck or you just download to much xxx movies and pictures.
How in the world would you know that.
You would know about how bad or lame your computer is, but to go and call someone's computer lame because they lag?
I lag out at the same times. This idea rocks my socks.
Tie the lag to say... an invasion.
That is when I get dc'd.
My computer isnt lame either creamy. it's only 4 months old and i use it just for goonzu, pretty much.

Ah man, Do I really have to type out my specs..?
O/S: Windows Vista Ultimate
Mobo: Asus M2n-SLi Deluxe (Vista Edition)
Processor: AMD 5200+ x2
VideoCard(s): Nvidia 8800 GTX x2 in SLI.
Ram: 3 GBs.
There should be no lag at all. But the marquee really lags my pc to death.
As for the cheap comment. I spent over $3,000 on this system when it was brand new.
One of my Video cards, when it came out more then likely cost more then your whole PC.
I don't download porn or pictures. The REAL thing is better by far.
A note to Flamers, Just because you have an opinion, that doesn't nessicarily mean you should type or speak it. More often then not it makes you look really foolish and/or simple minded. Just a thought.

First off, You're still talking down to me like I am some kind of idiot.
Secondly, I am computer literate, I DO know how to maintain my PC. It auto defrags every week, BECAUSE I SET IT THAT WAY!!! My PC still runs exactly the same as it did when I bought the computer. I am not a computer noob who pretends to know wth they're talking about... IT'S THE GAME! plain and simple.
I Built this computer for 3D and Graphic Design. Because that is what I do. I have been using computers since windows95, So Please spare me your weak attempts at telling me that my PC sucks, and that I have ZERO knowledge of computers. Seriously... You ***ume way too much. You don't know squat. Defragging your computer does NOT fix game related problems.... I have 1.5 Terabytes of storage on 3 seperate HD's... I don't need to delete anything.
I wish they had a user delete button too, so we can delete useless posts in our threads.
You offer nothing useful on this subject. My last response to you.

Hmm, you shouldn't be lagging with that. Are you playing at 40 fps and/or full screen?
If it isn't because of hat then you must have a lame internet connection.
Also I don't know what server you play on but I'm going to ***ume Zeus, just because they have more players in general. During a shareholder meeting everyone else will be online, straining the servers. A lot of people get similar things when there are large events, etc.
Also really? Two 8800's in SLI?
I hope that was a long time ago, since you can build an i7 rig with two GTX 285s in SLI for just over half what you paid.
