The lag is unbearable nothing works. Absolutely nothing. No answer yet from anet thou and we have been in this way for a month at least.
The lag is so bad you have it in respawn. Disgusting.

    There was one time when we were in ql and my screen just froze. A friend mentioned in coms I died in game. Grr. Huhu

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    I can't even swap weapons, player population is a fraction of what it was at launch yet lag is somehow worse.

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the servers are experiencing lag, because they had to shelter in place. We hope you understand.

    Amazon workers on strike today, resulting in packet loss.

    Not shabby - I get ~71ms ping in game to 125mn when in big fights (that is noticeable) - remember that the GW2 is a round trip ping not just one way.

    I logged in today for a few hours and I had zero lag? Is it just some people affected?

    Anet buff me :-(
    Make me good at game!

    That is not how servers work. Either all lag or none. If it is just some players, then it is the connection between them and server farm.

    I don't play at server reset / prime time mainly for this reason. Zoned in periodically between 8am and 6pm Saturday and Sunday, and even with a map queue, didn't see more than the 'usual' skill lag.

    Stop throwing common sense on the fire.

    Server log, day 47:
    3 hamster deaths, 7 more infected. WvW hamsters are running dangerously low on supplies and are still in lockdown, PvE hamsters are running around hoarding while there is an orange hamster in the corner running in circles for some reason. We tried to separate him due to potential brain damage after claiming you could cure the disease by ingesting network cables. Please send help.

    Tell me Willy The Three Legged WvW Server Hamster is still alive. Please. I can't bear to think of any other hamsters who have faithfully ran their lil legs off....literally for wvw like our Willy the beloved hamster.

  • wait lag in WvW? That sounds like it's a problem. I wish that Anet would at least say something about it and what can be done if anything to alleviate it.

    I shall light a candle in his beloved memory. We could always count on Willy. He wasn’t perfect and didn’t run quite right due to a missing limb, but he gave his little heart to all of us. The new hamster although he is more balanced can’t seem to keep up the traction on the wvw wheel. That’s why we are lagging cause the poor feller can’t run right.

    The problem is that the devs did talk about the lag. It was back in like February, and it was during one of the "devs play wvw". When asked during the stream, they said there is nothing they can do, and this is "as good as it gets". They said if 1 skill in particular had trouble they could try to tweak that skill, but the problem isn't 1 skill, it's the absolutely horrendous lag caused by the crappy Amazon cloud servers. This is literally the best we can get, unless they switch to a more modern cloud host than the old stuff amazon uses.

    Lost in the Maguuma (TC)
    For the geographically challenged, yes, Tarnished Coast is located IN the Maguuma Jungle.

    You really believed this AWS (=Amazon Web Servers) explanation? Seriously?
    I have NEVER EVER experienced any skill-lag in any PvE maps for the entire life of Guild Wars 2 game (and I play GW2 since bebatest) with only one single exception: roughly for 2 weeks right when the game was launched back in 28 August 2012, when they were tweaking their game settings and number of server racks required for nice game performance. Then yes, there were skill-lags at that game launching time (as with any launching MMO game, its totally understandable). But never ever in PvE again. There is only some graphic framerate drop at famous Frozen Maw Shaman Boss fight, but still no skill-lags at all. I repeat - never ever any skill-lags even if LEGIONS of players are present in any PvE map.

    Look at the frequency of issues solving, new content releasing, bug-fixing etc in GW2 . and compare all these things between PvE and WvW game modes. See the difference? ANet dont care much about GW2 WvW, mostly only about GW2 PvE. Thats why PvE cannot have lags, but not much care about lags in WvW.

  • Yuffi.2430Yuffi.2430 Member ✭✭

    There is a fundamental difference (apart from neglect of game mode) between WvW and PvE server services - I've never seen a WvW map come up with a "This map is closing" message.
    It could be that PvE instances get moved for load balancing between physical servers in the cluster, whereas the WvW servers are more likely to be static instances that are not moved. IF this was part of the problem, would we accept an occasional map close/reopen if it reduced lag?
    Also, a historical question - is lag worse now than it was years ago? I'm wondering how much impact the move from dedicated servers to Host/Guest servers and linking has had on the lag we experience.
