I posted this on the Quakelive site a few days ago.
Nobody seems to know how to fix this.

Lag when players connect

When is this bug gonna be fixed. Its great that the devs are striving to improve the game with various updates but to my mind this VERY serious bug needs fixing. Every single game without fail my game lags at a critical moment and Im dead! Why does this occur? It never happened in Q3 Arena so why is it happening now??? Are the any workarounds? This bug affects actual gameplay and ruins the game for me. I dont care about nice voices or pretty maps. I just want the game to run smoothly without interruption everytime another client connects. Please Please Please fix this.
Thanks in advance
