Yeah - that is what I was thinking. I don't think the level of competition is as high on the XLN mainly due to the Japanese origins of the game (and also the fact the PS3 is ubiquitous in Japan).
Yeah - those lag stabs are crazy. I got lag stabbed like across the forest by this one guy. I was like what in the world. That technique, glitch, network delay/poor Internet or whatever makes for a difficult invasion usually resulting death for me. I did have one farmer admit he used WiFi (instead of a hard-wired Ethernet connection)for the lag effect advantage - similar to the effect when people use lag switches for an edge :evil: .
