One of the drawbacks of PC gaming. Runs like crap for me, buttery smooth for someone else.Strange. Watching another buddy of mine stream it now with a i7-7700k and 1080ti maxed out and it hasn't dipped below 60FPS. Only issue he's run into was being booted around the time the demo opened to the public. Apparently people are still having issues getting in, and he's in it just fine, lol.
Regarding server issues, I don't think it's fair to say that's an excuse. People Can Fly have never really done another title like this. It's pretty ambitious for them. Well, and Square has limited experience. So, I think it's fair to expect online related issues. It's probably exactly why they're offering the demo at all. As always, demos are a great way for devs to pin point potential issues and engage in proper stress testing.
With Blizzard it was a sillier experience IMO since they had a ton of experience before D3's launch. But it still shat the bed, and hard.
I think it's fair to expect connection issues and limit expectations with all network driven titles day 1. Demos as well. If there are none or hardly any, great! Less disappointment, haha.
Excellent points there and I should have considered PCF's background and them being new to this kind of game. Yeah, server issues are to be expected but for me it was more sprinkling some salt on the poor performance wound. I did see they announced they're ramping up server capacity so kudos to them for being on top of things.
