    Can someone who keeps getting lag report in this thread when their lag is resolved? I've pretty much given up playing as it is starting to hit on every map, for me.

    yes well discord doesn't hiccup, when I get trapped in my warclaw's skills while dismounted and attempting to fight. Discord also doesn't hiccup when my skill icons have the flashing animation like they're casting but nothing is happening. I can say its not my end...

    Discord is not the same as an online game connection.

    The only Anet response to LAG reports is this MERGED thread.

    This Lag is caused by 1 or both of low AWS tier or bad scalability of gw2. Endless updates to cosmetics and increased enemy agro are taking a toll on Scalability as well.

    Before the AWS migration 2 years ago, Lag was EXTREMELY rare.

    Also, the Devs posted in 'News and Announcements' about the issue.

  • I bet this is a social experiment.
    Management.6969: We need some serious expenses cuts. Ideas?
    Employee.6666: I got you boss. We deploy plan X: "How long will people still login and try to play this while we move everything to the cheapest AWS instance"
    Management.6969: I like the idea, specially in regards to a single instance! You just got promoted!
    Employee.6666: Wait, I meant instances . Never mind. I like this promotion.

    The lag has been getting steadily worse over the past few months and weeks. At first it was S4 maps but it now seems to be 'spreading' to PoF and core Tyria maps. I've been around a LONG time (beta with a 5ish year break) and I've never seen spikes so bad. There is clearly a problem that needs addressing here and I worry that if GW2 releases on Steam in this condition it will put a lot of potential players off.

    I really do think that this needs talking about more.

  • AWS has serious packet loss

  • This has been a problem since pof day 1

  • still waiting for a fix its been months

    Always be rootin, always be tootin, and by golly always be shootin.

  • Issue is still present for me too.

    I hope Anet will fix it before Steam launch cause if they are gonna welcome potentialy new long-time players with servers performing so poor, those new players will stop playing GW2 and refund it ASAP.

    And all we have is this post from august (but the issue with server lag is way older) - https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/111982/an-update-on-game-performance-issues

  • problem is it will take a while for new steam players to get to that point before they complain on steam

    Always be rootin, always be tootin, and by golly always be shootin.

    Wow someone was bored/busy in the forums lol

    Lag wise, it's sad when I lag less in WvW when there is a ZvZvZ fight involving about 90-100ish people in 1 concentrated area than in PvE

    Red = Dead...or someone runs away. Either way it's gone.

    I personally have had few problems over the years with PoF in general. My PC is ancient at this point, I expect a rough time in a lot of places. However the general performance on these maps and other areas such as the S4 maps and LA have gradually gotten much worse recently (the past couple of months for me) with huge lag spikes affecting everyone on the map and FPS drops inconsistent with a stable server.

    I want the best for GW2, I adore this game and want to see it do well. This issue really needs addressing prior to the Steam release otherwise a lot of players are going to be driven away by it.

  • Serious, this has to be your top priority right now. More than xpacs, revenue plans, whatever. This is gonna kill the game, and Im not talking about balance or loosing a few dedicated players like me. Steam players are gonna come here, see a game from 2012 that should run smooth as velvet. Than they find the lag is out of control, and find out that it HAS been out of control for months. Its gonna destroy this game reputation.

    I honestly think Anet is thinking that once they buy the expacs they'll be golden. Steam will refund the game instantly. No questions asked.

    Well, I came back to the game few months after PoF release (I bought the game on release in 2012 and stopped playing after few months). Played HoT, LS3 then PoF till LS4 ep 4? (The one with roller beetle). Then I took a break for about year, and came back few months ago. I don't recall any big issues with lags back then. Sure, it spiked from time to time, had 1 or 2 DCs during story mode but that was it. It was never like map being laggy with 5-10s freezes. So thing is, something occured during my last break.
