    War steed speed goes up and down - Will this ever be addressed?

    Running full on with my war steed, I have, from their introduction, always been subject to speed fluctuations. You surge in speed, fast, then slower, fast, then slower. It's extremely annoying. I thought update 10 might address it, but no, as bad if not worse than ever.

    THIS IS NOT RUBBER BANDING. Different issue entirely.

    Fios 20Mb connection, decent enough computer (specs in sig). It happens everywhere--not just rohan. Turned off various settings (I'm usually on ultimate) but nope. Doesn't fix it. No other processes running, anti-virus off. Is this just Turbine's servers?

    Does anyone out there achieved consistent war-steed speeds when just running in a straight line without often seeing these changes? If so, what's your secret??

    Yup. No secrets. I just... um... ride?

    I've tried on a few computers now and all do it. So, you're on high or ultra settings, directx 11, and you can run, say, full speed through Harwick with the speed staying consistent?

    Do you have a particularly high end computer?

    Yes, well, unless I run into a wall.

    Not really. ASUS i5 3GHz 8GB RAM ATI Radeon Win7.

    Walls! That's it! I think you're on to something!

    Oh well, thanks. Every computer I've tried it with seems possessed then. Sometimes it's fine, but then I get that fluctuation. Just enough to drive me crazy. Maybe it's just some kind of server lag--but don't get it anywhere except when on a war steed.

    I get it too. It's not just at high speed, either. Put your horse at a slower pace and watch it for a while. On a flat, straight path, it will usually fluctuate pretty quickly. Of course, there's often something close by, so I am usually more interested in not getting knocked off my horse...
