Changing the ticket ratio makes it lag? Pre-patch, after, or both? We ran
perfectly at 200 til this latest patch, to where we can't change it now

"Error free" isn't the same as "does work".
Let's say you read a bit about windows, among other things that you
can change the background of the desktop, it's a nice function you
think. When you actually get windows, you realize that when you change
the background, windows uses 90% of the system resources to display
your background and therefore stops being usable in any real way.
Thus, it dosen't work.
Changing the ticket ratio makes the server lag so much it's
unplayable, thereby it dosen't work.
You all know the errors and what they have done to our game. You cant
see the stats on some servers, because the admins have removed it
because it kills the server most of the time at round restart. The
stats are a part of the game that many people like. We've paid to see
stats. It's not delivered to us.
Flight control software is heavy duty stuff. It's not somthing you buy
in a store. You special order from a team of software designers that
are signed to take responsibility for the code and assure that it's
fully functional and bug free. It's not really relevant.
But still, there is a clear difference in my mind between software
with bugs and software without working functionality.
