    i am sure that we all know the insane lag in all PoF maps that make your time in the open world there unenjoyably.
    is there any fix to it coming? its a huge portion of the game that's basically unplayable

    Warning: sarcastic post follows, don't take it seriously

    There is no fix they can apply to solve the issue because the servers are fine. It's either your computer, your ISP, your network, the way your ISP routes your data to Anet servers, but there is no problem with the servers because some people aren't affected by these issues. Your best bet is to move to a different city/country, change ISP, buy a new Computer or all of the above since it's clearly a problem with you and nothing Anet can do about it.

    I mean, it is an issue that does NOT apply to everyone equally. I've had enough times where I had no lag while map chat was full of people saying they had crazy skill delays. It's certainly on them to fix, but still.

    I rather choose death.

    I did not have these issues in pof till last month.. I think its just more people in pof than other maps.. As an Aussie i tend to play off peak US times, in those times as a whole i get less issues, as the Americans wake up and join the servers my latency issues get much much worse.

    From memory, this issue been occurring on a variety of maps since the move to AWS. ArenaNet appear to be very mum about the whole thing and I cannot understand why. If I had the kind of latency issues in my place of work that ArenaNet does, the IT senior management would be screaming until it is fixed.

    It will have quite a severe impact on maintaining those new Steam players when they run through core Tyria, find they love it, purchase PoF + HoT (FoC), only to run into huge lag. But again, ArenaNet do not seem to want to communicate this to us.

    I do not often criticise the developers but this is something that baffles me completely.

    I only visit PoF maps for dailies, so I'm not that bothered, but it's baffling why the rest of the game seems fine.
    Ah well, back to HoT metas.

    That 3-way fight in SMC with massive lag and 1/3 of them end up D/Cin'? Nah, totally the players' kitten internet.

    AHA! Saw the sarcastic bit after I quoted. -- agreed then.

    Before the switch to AWS 2 years ago, we had no lag issues except in a Zerg WB fight when it was daily.
    BTW, I'm still using the same tier of ISP service and exactly the same PC.

    Now I see lag just arranging my inventory on some days.

    Actually, the move to AWS servers took place 3 years ago (almost to the day).
