No.. the server has a fair method of dealing with it. To us its still going to be a slideshow.

The world is a community of idiots doing a series of things until it explodes and we all die.

No your FPS should still be 30/60 if you have a good comp, things will just happens way more slowly but also more smoothly and accurately.

Imagine a fleet fight in slow mo but still running at 60 FPS...

The slow-mo happens so that the server can keep up with all the changes and calculations and data going out and the requests coming in form all the members of the fleet fight. By slowing everyone down in time it allows the sever to not miss any data or requests and making sure every single gun finds its target and every gun activation or deactivation is accounted for and KMs are generated correctly and people are correctly added to he grid or subtracted or ships correctly being blown up, despawning and putting the pilot into their pod correctly.
