I've been playing quite a bit more than usual since the ocean update and I have been plagued with de-sync issues on the boat. It is not unusal for it to take 45m-1hr to sail from Epheria to Veila...something that should take about 15 min max. The problem is I de-sync litterally every 30 seconds. A new problem I am now seeing is that sometimes when I come back my right stick is no longer responds. The only way to get it back is to disconnect and exit the game. If I had an original xbox or an x this would be so painful as I would spend more time on the loading screen than in game.
I have only seen this be a big problem on boats and wagons and I don't ever see this on PC. I also see this happen immediately after I open world map or inventory. It appears as if it happens when a load of data is being requested. Perhaps allow us on console to turn off ALL notifications. This includes my worker production. I don't need to see 50,000 messages about flax, potatoes, ore, etc. I also don't need to see XxxxStabYourFacexxxX fail PEN enhancement 50 times. Let us turn all of this off. Maybe this will help?
I made videos all last night of my de-sync. Every time I tried to move on the sea. De-sync...de-sync....de-sync. The game was completely unplayable last night for me. I tried switching servers. No matter. I ran the xbox network tests, 1000MBps down, 35 up, 0 latency. I ran separate speed tests on PCs in my house same results.
