This is probably the same thing that happens every single patch when people predicably rush the servers to try it out, and Frontier refuses to increase AWS server capacity so they are overwhelmed by the increased server traffic causing massive lag spikes in SC.Hey OP, have you reported this on the Issue Tracker? If not, please do and the team can investigate! https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/11894
The problem is always "solved" by enough people immediately getting sick to death of the lag and insta rage quitting, yet again. Until the game is again back to being a ghost town with sufficiently low server load. Then the handful of remaining lifers celebrate Frontier "fixed" the game. Rinse repeat.
