I'm a little hesitant to announce it without confirming with many players, BUT! It appears the lag issue was resolved with the changing of some hardware at GTT.net. The bots, at least, are no longer suffering from packetloss, and that alone is a huge improvement.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen. It took a total of 3 months to get these guys to figure it out, but finally the pressure became too much and they had no choice but to put in the effort!

If you are still experiencing S2C packetloss problems that began around 3 months ago in June, please post in this thread or contact me in-game.
