[FIXED] Changing channels lag spike
Fixed as of the v193.3 patch.
Bug type: Functionality
Brief bug summary: Generally after a few seconds of changing a channel, you'll hit a large lag spike where your MapleStory client just freezes for a few seconds. I've tested this with multiple computers and my friends get the lag spike too when they change channels.
More details: Seems to be an issue with the client rather than a server lag, since server lag doesn't freeze your actual screen.
A friend suggested that it might have to do with the medals quests reactivating every time you change channels (e.g. the game telling you that you've earned the Forever Single medal every time you change channels if you don't accept the medal or get married). This would make sense, considering opening your Medal Inventory causes practically identical lag.
Steps to reproduce: Change channels, feel the lag spike freeze.
