1. During POS bash I was randomly moving (briefly) to different positions off the POS and then returning to where I was, 100km or so then it would move back.
2. Client crashed at POS. Relogging and turning off effects seemed to prevent further crashes.

General comments:
During the entire mass test it was very laggy, even with no brackets or effects. I was able to empty 2 load fulls of missiles onto the POS though. Didnt check FPS but would estimate around 10 on average.

Aside from the above no other issues for me.

    • Sound also just cut out entirely during the POS shoot. It didn't come back until I restarted client after the gatecamp.
      In addition for about half a minute after returning to the POS bash, I had a square of blue rectangles around my ship.
      Later during the gatecamp fight, my client locked up for a number of minutes, showing me at 150+ km from anything when it finally started working again, with nothing happening for few more minutes when i tried to warp, only to be killed by a Tengu showing at 300+ km rather suddenly at that point.

    Client performance was good up until it crashed, but gameplay was poor. I was being teleported randomly all over the grid.

    Clients: 1
    Settings: High, AA off, shader and shadow detail at medium and low respectively.

    Experience: What test? I was too busy crashing.

    Average FPS: I don't know. Maybe like 2, but only because of how much my client froze. Otherwise 20-35 approximately.

    Disconnects or crashes?: Oh dear, where do I even start. By my count I had 9 distinct crashes and too many client lockups to count. 5 of the nine crashes occurred during the "gatecamp" portion of the test, in which I also became stuck in a loop of emergency warping out of the fight to a random point at e-warp distance, and being unable to cancel the warp back, and then crashing the instant grid should've loaded. This happened about 5 times, in under 5 minutes.

    General experience: Poor, overall. Ship was jumping around grid at random, not even corresponding to directions I was actually travelling in. The ability to warp was for lack of a better word 'broken', and when I attempted to warp to the Poitot gate my Gila became melded with said gate, and the game was behaving as if I was there- But I hadn't initiated warp yet and was still actually registered as being at the POS. It took several minutes for the client to 'catch up' and actually allow me to jump through. After this, I attempted to aid Fleet W in the gate camp but was more or less unable to due to a hideously high rate of crashing and hangups. I was forced to do an emergency-moveme out of the system lest I continue to warp into the camp and crash for the remainder of the test. As such I did not get a chance to do the NPC fight thing at the end. Addendum: Missile explosions have no audio, Assault and I think Heavy launchers show a missile being launched from one side, but the effect itself comes from the other. Minor detail, didn't really notice unless I zoomed all the way in on the turret and scrutinized it's firing.

    had to reconnect 3 times.

    Describe your experience, make comments, suggestions, etc.:
    warping to grid with everything either on low or off was fine... locking and fireing was fine. Then when i slowly added graphics settings, i got to missile effects and my spacial position shifted several times and my distance to objects on my overview compared to how it looked were totally different. my ships orientation and speed looked like they locked when in fact they were changing... i was moving sideways and backwards and with full mwd speed with no mwd on. Yet my view on objects didnt seem to move progressively. It would jump vastly from 70km to 300km on one side then suddenly the complete opposite side.

    decided warping off grid should break it and re-sync. Objects dissapeared from my overview and screen but my position in space around the same celestial stayed. had to relog to clear it and appear back in station as i couldnt dock regardless of how many times i requested to do so.

    the one time i did load grid smoothly with missile effects on was just after the official test finished, but when i launched a void bomb towards a cap i suddenly appeared 80km from everything, traveling in totally the wrong direction. then getting bomb notifications that id hit stuff.

    a LOT of desyncs and disconnects etc...

    • Describe your experience, make comments, suggestions, etc.:
    1. Several people were smart bombing during the entire test even after told not to.

    2. I suggest that the inventory window have a complete overhaul, I could not load my ammunition because my cargohold was full where as it always worked before this update. It would just swap the crystals no matter how much cargo space I had left, i had to abandon my radio Ls to load my guns with a different range crystal.
    http://ft.trillian.im/vasvadum/67oozrOIL-f7ad74z2bQ.jpg (Unable to load Ammo)

    3. I also would like to suggest that Inventory windows that are separated, go back to the old look, to fit like this:
    http://ft.trillian.im/vasvadum/67nWudkz6-DP5Z8EkaaR.jpg (My current cargo and "invintory" setup on TQ)

    4. Since people love to grief no matter what, I'd like to suggest that smart bombs, warp bubbles and whatever else is not allowed during a test, would be set to do absolute 0 damage during the test if this is possible. Or an automated concord response happen to those people no matter what security level we are in, null or not. Only during tests though, so a flip switch for concord to come in and pop rule breakers the very instant they break a rule.

    5. CCP should not fire upon people when PVP isn't allowed during part of the test! >.> Yes, CCP was shooting at me! At least I think so, someone with CCP in their name was.

    • 1 Disconnect during the fleet battle, I was just succeeding as well Sad

    • Pretty much what I expected from a mass test with that many people apart from a couple of instances of attempting to warp. When I tried warping away from the pos to get to Poitot I span round and started warping, but then instead of warping I simply sat there, with the little blue speedometer at the bottom at full with warp on it. There was nothing around me, but I was apparently only 44km away from the pos beacon. The appearence of it was very similar to if I was surrounded by other objects, my ship kept turning in different directions, like it was constantly being bumped. After a couple of minutes of waiting for it to do something I tried stopping my ship, to see if that would make any difference, it did not. After a few more minutes of waiting for it to do something I finally appeared slap bang in the middle of a lot of ships next to the gate. After that everything went as expected. This also occured when I warped away from Poitot 1, where we were shooting npcs, to get to the first station in that system.

    Two (2) Crashes, after which I did not reconnect. At one point the sound completely shut off, but only in the EVE client, not the entire computer system.

    Describe your experience, make comments, suggestions, etc.:
    Parts of the fight went pretty smooth, mostly the gatecamp fight. While shooting the POS the first odd thing I encountered was a teleport into the station in the starting system of the test setup. Probably because of severe LAG in the mass teleport channel, since I gave up after a while and used the regular MOVEME channel to get near the destination and was ported shortly afterwards.

    While shooting the POS my ship teleported around in space, somewhere from 20-80km of the initial warp-in beacon. I tried to move closer to the POS or away from smartbombing carriers, but my ship did not respond in a timely manner.

    After the POS shooting I warped to the outgate, but there was severe lag and I ended up close to the gate, but without grid and waiting quite a while to jump through.
