I was just about to post to see if there was a way to load the entire game into RAM. I figure 12GB will cut it, if the game can run normally with only 2.
I find it a bit disturbing that anyone should need to do this though. My guess is that the server isn't telling our computers what assets it needs to load, since a list of those assets, if monitored, would be able to give you some information about the local environment. This would leave the computer flat footed and waiting on the hard drive, which if in use already is a problem. Guess I should have installed the game on my second drive.
Actually, in retrospect the OS, general applications, and media should all be on the main drive, and all the games should be on the second, so that the OS & applications, and my games, are never trying to use it at the same time. I'll keep this in mind for my next computer.
EDIT: Guess I was right, this isn't my problem, or not most of it. This is exceptionally frustrating since I can play real time games online with minimal issues, except this one. I it's their ISP, then I guess I should try using a different region until they finally sort it out.
