I got mad in MC Alpha because I lagged when the view distance was on "tiny" with graphics on "fast", but since beta, I have lag like the view distance was in "far" with the graphics on "fancy"... I thought there would be a bit less lag?
Yep, I was lagging a bit before, now I can barely play. but it's coming in spikes, sometimes freezing me for about 30 seconds, and then speeding back up.
EDIT: I think Notch released more post eating pigs into the server. x3
