Why does every official server lag?

I've been watching KRO streamers and the servers are so laggy like even using a butterfly wing has 1 second delay. I'm curious it happens to IRO and my place too which begs the question why are official servers always so laggy?

The Aegis emulator is not really coded in a very efficient way, you need a really really strong server just to get it to run at all.

It runs through everything in a 20ms interval and often simply can't manage to handle everything in that time, so it starts queueing it and this causes the strange unresponsiveness.

On *Athena emulators we changed this to a 100ms interval (and often even slower for certain things), so it needs 5+ times less CPU power. Unfortunately that also makes implementation of certain things like firewall behavior impossible to replicate to 100%.
