Yes, mods and developers have been playing around testing the game and the servers for a while, but that doesn't compare to how the servers are flooding right now. They are getting 1000's of connections at the same thiem breaking everything. Will probably be better in a while.
its hit or miss atm. I got to a server list and most were maxing out like the doors of black friday opening. Literally everyone got word the game is active and there are potentially thousands of people all trying to get in first. What makes it worse is its the christmas weekend so more people are off work and available to play. Its going to be crazy for the next week or so. One thing i will say, for the 5 minutes i got into a server before it lost connection. i had ridiculously fast frames. Was expecting it to be like early dayz
Got on first try and loaded into a server. Walked around a little bit tried to cross a small lake. My character sank to the bottom of the lake like a rock. Just about made it out. Then I got put onto an endless loading screen. Restarted game and as you lot I am now getting a no lobby connection.
I think I might give it a few days before trying again.
