We will be running an update soon to fix the lag issues. Note that this update will itself cause some large lag spikes on first login for some bics. Some DMFI variables were getting overpopulated which has been inflating bic sizes, so we have to clear those variables. As some bics had variable counts in the 10,000 range, clearing them can involve a 20 second lag spike. Once these variables are cleared, though, and that character is saved, they will no longer trigger lag issues.
Thus, the next few days might see some extra lag for some larger bics on login, but after a few days the ongoing lag issues should be cleared up.
