    I was playing in WvW last night, without issue; I mean, it's certainly playable for me. I use a toaster - A8-4500M APU w/ Radeon HD 7640G
    Thus, it's not a matter of 'upgrad(ing)'.

    Good luck.

    What areas and servers are you on? Everyone I know playing the game is having issues with crowd and graphics lag. If the controlling group on WvW is more the 20-30 We all suffer. Including folks with the i7 and better graphics. Maybe since last 2 updates. I also noticed I cant play Tequatl lately when numbers are high on map. I had this issue in the past and it went away after complaining.

  • @JacobsHell.6251 I suggest you look urgently at getting more system memory. You have 4GB (and yes, I know, the system requirements say 4GB, but bear with me), and the report claims that you have 2GB of page file in use. That's not good. It means that 2GB of stuff that would like to be in system memory has been kicked out ("paged") to the pagefile, and you're likely to have performance problems because of that.

    I can see the issue is not just me. These guys have way better setups then I do. Having same issues I am. I am just having more of a issue to to old setup but it still works to run gw2. I think just needs some tweaking somewhere.

    Pagefiling has nothing to do with anything. It is there to help off loading in game. I have it on a different hard drive.

    I want to say after path of fire was downloaded issues hit the fan. Give me advice on how to make my game run better with what I have no nonsense like go buy some ram.

    You'll have performance problems when something wakes up, gets paged back in, and in the process kicks a bit of GW2 out to the page file, for example. It isn't about whether the pagefile and the game are on the same or different disks. If there is stuff paged out to the pagefile, your physical memory is too small for what your computer is trying to do with it. (If there was enough physical memory, that stuff wouldn't be in the pagefile.)

    If you turn down detail in your graphics settings (shadow-map resolution, texture resolution, character model detail, that sort of thing), you can reduce GW2's memory usage. Are you running the 32 or 64 bit client, by the way? I know that on some lower-end machines, the 32-bit client is automatically preferred. (It also uses approximately half the memory used by the 64-bit client. I've seen the 64-bit client's memory use get beyond 3.5GB.)

    Hey Steve I don't remember what client version is installed. 32 bit version was horrible for me ram wise. Switched to 64 now game runs. I did a reinstall recently but I don't remember what version. How to check? Oh never mind 64bit is what I am running. Also without having my pagefile set to a decent amount the game would not even run I have experimented with this.

    Also you say this client runs up to 3.5 gigs. I haven't seen any spikes go this high but the game crashes a lot. On the 32 bit client the game crashed non stop for me so I switched. I have been playing this game along time from time to time running into same issue yet it somehow manages to correct itself.

  • I, too, would recommend more RAM. I had significantly better performance when adding more RAM than the 4MB my computer came stock with. I wish I could add more.

  • I'm also having lag spikes from 1k-2k just recently while doing meta events. Already checked my ISP, router, etc. and still doing some spikes randomly.

  • I also seem to have this problem since yesterday - I'm from Greece playing on NA for 4 years now, I rarely have latency issues - my average ping is 150 which is fine - no lag. I'm having serrriious trouble though doing the most basic of stuff in pve as well as the OP states. I can't figure out why that is, everything else seems to be working fine, only GW2 lags out a lot. :/

  • Before I get started.

    i5 8600k
    16 Gbs DDR4 - 2666 MHz
    MSI GTX 1080 "DUKE"

    Ok so I've been a bit suspicious of my frame rate in certain areas recently. Now I know that frame drops are normal in a zerg. But I decided to check my system during the Dragon Stand meta today. In huge zergs my frame rate was around 40-50, and in boss piles it could dip just bellow 30. No AA, high character limit/detail, and all other visual settings maxed.

    I know that these are good frame rates for a huge zerg but watching my system performance neither my CPU nor my GPU were ever maxed. My 1080 probably didn't even hit 50%,which I expected, while my CPU would vary between 60-75%. So my question is why doesn't that last bit of CPU get used? Is that some kind of system safety? If not is there someway to get the system to use that last bit of power? Thanks for any insights!

    The i5 8600K has 6 cores. I don't know specifically how well GW2 is optimized for multiple cores but many games aren't for more than 4 cores, especially older titles. GW2 is also a DX9 title, and I have heard that DX9 itself doesn't utilize more than 4 cores very well.

    i am using a shortcut to launch GW2 that forces CPU affinity to use only the four physical cores on my i7-6700K, and that seemed to make a lot of improvement in smoother play.

    Edit: here's the link to the post I made about how to make that shortcut.
    https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/comment/386880#Comment_386880

  • Yeah I know that older games tend to favor 4 cores. When I was watching my system monitor the other two cores were doing something but I guess I can't really tell what was using those cores. Just that they were being used.

    That shortcut sounds interesting though do you know of any tutorials I could use to set that up myself?

  • This is the walkthrough:
    https://www.eightforums.com/threads/cpu-affinity-shortcut-for-a-program-create-in-windows.40339/
    And I translated that into this shortcut for GW2 64 bit version:
    C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start "Gw2-64.exe" /affinity 55 "C\Program Files (x86)\Guild Wars 2\Gw2-64.exe" -autologin -mapLoadinfo
    You will need to change the "55" to what gets calculated by the walkthrough, and other things if you don't have a default installation location for GW2. The last two items are GW2 command line arguments that are there to show you can just add them on the end like that. There are other ways to set CPU affinity but they are either not permanent or involve running other applications, and this is just a shortcut that you can use or not use for easy A/B testing.

  • I do for the last 2 days.. I am connecting from Japan, and I expected a high ping (my average is 300 ping), but in the last 2 days the lag has been horrendous (ping went up to 1,5k,a nd 2k)

  • Sad that this hasn't been addressed since PoF release. I have friends and myself suffering bad in this game. I don't want to hear my kitten is to old because all our complaints are the same low end to high end setups. I am in America so are my friends. my average ping 150-300. The larger the graphic content the worse things get. I played on new maps doing a bounty run and could barely move on the map while tagged to a squad. Left the squad after the battle and got a little performance back but not much to jump around about. As of right now I just cant play the game. I want to add that maybe a server is messed up somewhere or some bad programing is going on. I mean people with high end graphics dipping at least 50 plus fps. Something is wrong.

  • edited August 21, 2018

    I've started having these issues a few weeks ago, noticeably after the most recent Living World episode. I thought it may something with my computer but the people I play with somehow have the exact same problem. The game will freeze for seconds at a time. It doesn't matter whether I am in a PoF map, a city, or Central Tyria with very little people, even on the lowest graphic settings the game is basically unplayable. I have no issues with any other games I play. My internet connection is perfect.
    I don't have the best computer, it's quite dated. But like I said, I play with people who have really nice computers and they experience the same thing. It's certainly not something on my end. Especially with the amount of people in this forum dealing with lag as well.
    As for my geographical location, I am in Northeast United States.

  • So I had an issue where my pc crashed, thunder storm.

    ever since then, it seems like gw2 everything loads extremely slowly. im not talking loading screens, i mean character models, sounds, random disconnects, its so wierd. is there anything i can do about this?

  • Aaralyna.3104Aaralyna.3104 Member ✭✭✭

    You may want to start by resetting your modem if the thunderstorm made it poof. If issue still persists after, you may want to check your ping with a tracert or similar so you can see where on the line you have packet loss. If it is at your side you will have to fix it (maybe thunderstorm gave some damage/issues), if its at your ISP you can give them a ring to fix it, if its Anet's side, maybe a ticket works so they can see where the problem lies. You may also want to check your Gw2 files and settings in case something went weird due to the pc crash (or even your hardware altho I am not sure it could be influenced by a thunderstorm outage) .

  • @Aaralyna.3104 said:

    For sure it could. If lightning hits a power line, it can and will damage or break consumer electronics and electrical equipment in nearby houses.

    Hi,

    After a year without playing, today I launched the game. But I'm facing a problem : I don't have the same ping as I used to have. Now I have around 200-300 whereas I usually have around 60. My ping is ok on speedtest, I checked if there was any program in the task manager and I updated my driver, but nothing has changed...

    Is there anything I can do ?

    Thank you !

  • You can use a program to check your ping to the servers such as PingPlotter. Speed Test won't follow a path to the GW2 servers.
    The Servers moved some time ago; also, in-game ping includes processing time.

    Good luck.

    EU or NA?

    the routing in EU to the server in frankfurt main germany can be lousy at times (Level3 server issues ... very well known for causing troubles on a regular basis. note: i am not an expert, i can only repeat what i was told(forum users and FAQ on provider websites)/what i can see on a pingplot)
    using a VPN helped me, when i faced a period of one to two weeks with a ping of 300-900ms (i live VERY close to frankfurt)... most services come at a mothly cost however, which is a big downside.

    in NA the servers moved i believe from NCSoft texas to amazon servers somewhere else and where/are causing high latency for many players (reddit is full of complains).

  • I play on EU Server, and the VPN has made no big difference.

    However, I put -clientport 80 and It seems to work. Now I have like 70 with 50 fps in empty areas and like 140 with 22 fps in cities, it is pretty normal, isn't it ?

  • I just came back to the game after 2 years. I used to have solid 60fps and now im having less than 30 and sometimes even less than 15 in some cases in open world, not even Lions Arch. This happened to me after the launch of PoF. Im using an FX 8350 and a MSI RX 470 GAMING X

  • I own:

    Intel i5 7500
    16 GB RAM
    Geforce GTX 1060 (6 GB VRAM)

    All games I played so far (GTA V, BF4, BF1, DOOM, Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six Siege... and so on)... everything had a minimum of 50 to 60 FPS all the time.
    And the one game which constantly has frame drops is GW2. And why? Maybe because Arena Net set all calculating via CPU or the graphics engine is just programmed very badly. I have no clue.
    But I love that game and will play it. Hope dies last.

  • Same here, from past 2 days the game is stuttering/lagging way too much..

    Certainly can...blew out my Motherboard once, just hitting outside. Comes thru the powerlines/phone line.
    Why I now have a 3000Joule surge protector. (fingers-crossed) Lightning damage can often be noticed 1-2weeks later too. Delayed observation.

  • So I'm not sure what is happening and I don't know what the issue could be but it is irritating for PvP especially, so for a few months now, on and off, here and there I've been getting this weird lag issue where when I'm playing my ping spikes up to 100-4,000 that I don't get in other games usually and when this ping spike hits everything still keeps moving such as other players in pvp, my skills still work when I want them to but the only thing that doesn't work seems to be my mouse, the cursor disappears and I can no longer turn around with my mouse and its very impacting on all game modes not just PvP; I was wondering if anyone else is having the same issue or know how to fix it or it might just be from my end, Thanks.

    Hiya, I just started playing again, and have had some latency issues that I'm unsure how to address. My FPS seems fine, and my ping is okay aside from some spikes which I believe are the main issue (<100 when I'm looking, around 60 to 80, usually shows an Average of ~150 or so). This issue is noticeably worse in Dungeons/Fractals, and a few times I've been in PvP since returning to the game (though it just may be more obvious to me due to time-sensitive dodges, actions, etc.).
    Things will often be fine, and then for a few moments every ten seconds or go, abilities will just stop. I can move, and usually anything I tried to press during the second (or more) delay will attempt to go off, and the game will jump back to the correct current state. I don't seem to have these issues in other, more lag-sensitive games (FPS & fighting games, Siege and For Honor lately).
    I've also run the GW2 Diagnostic, which I'll dump below. Nothing seems to out of the ordinary, except for one server with high packet loss (which seems to be constant through a 3 diagnosis runs). Let me know if there's any other data or information I can help provide. Any suggestions super welcome, thank you!!

  • Since it's a Spectrum (Time Warner/Roadrunner) address, you may be able to speak to your ISP. Or, since it's after running through the backbone, send the information to the Tech CS Team and see if they can assist you.

    Good luck.

  • Thank you very much for your response! I suspected as much, but it's nice to have some form of confirmation. I'm reaching out to both now, I suspect the GW2 support team might actually get back to me first. Thanks again!

  • Two weeks ago I started to have problems with fps, something I never had, I always played with a rate of 50 to 45 fps in the graphics for performance because my computer is not very strong, the interesting thing is that the problem is only with the gw2, I tested with POE, The Witcher 3 even the PUBG ran normally. I updated the video card driver but the problem continued, so I reinstalled the whole game, same thing. I do not know what to do now.

    Specs - AMD FX-8320E
    AMD Radeon R7 360 2GB
    12GB RAM

    BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY - I've played since the first beta and this is a great game.

  • Couldnt play for 3 days spended all the money I saved for the sale on BDO.
    I dont even wanna spend a cent on a game that cant even keep their servers running normally.

  • Same here.. I can't really do anything due to the constant 2-4k ping ever since the new patch. SEA too.

    Also getting high ping since the last patch. Goes up around other players, stabilises when alone. Had the problem for months, August was a brief window of respite, but the new patch screwed it again. Aus.

    Only your game. Might want to fix it :)

    edit: this seems to primarily happen in pvp, even during off hours! below some logged troublesome ip addresses (playing from south america!)

    Never said I'm the best, but I believe I'm better than you.

    You can use a program like Pingplotter to find out where the connectivity issues lay.

    Good luck.

    Oohh. Question though, what host server address(gw2 side) do you use when using pingplotter?

  • Whichever IP address of the map you experience lag in. You can find the IP address by typing /IP in chat.

    another one, skyhammer. very laggy.

    34.235.183.140

    starting to notice a pattern with these...

  • Then, those are the IP addresses to check with Pingplotter.

  • Still unplayable :'( 1000+ ping every time i play

  • What sort of update must have mucked up the connection. It was perfectly fine up till July onwards. Doubt this will ever be looked into, which is why it's still ongoing. Malaysia

  • What's up guys.

    I went back to playing after a while. Well, when I played about 4 years ago, in an i5 notebook, gtx 355m, 4gb ram, everything was running in the LOW-MID. The game ran smoothly, no gagging on the maps, all good, logically in the big Zergs in WVW and big events was that slideshow ...

    After a while, I buy a new Desktop with the following settings:
    i5 7400
    8gb RAM
    RX 580 4gb
    Even with this descending UPGRADE the game has a horrible frame drops! I can only play bursting at 50-60 FPS ( stopped, on an empty map) When I go on POF maps there the problems are worse. In the initial city (can not remember the name) it's slide rain ... it's BAD!

    I looked at the official forum and saw that there were a lot of people complaining about the lack of optimization of the new maps. People with a 1080Ti with frame drops. BIZARRE! It's looking like PUBG before the official release.

    I was playing with everything in High, but I've already dowgrade some stuff for Low and Medium settings. This is sad! Is the game so heavy?

    My question is. How are you guys dealing with this? Is there any graph configuration tips to improve perfomance? Or is it content with lack of optimization and live with the "slides show" ?! Does anyone have similar setup and runs the game smooth? Solutions?

    Character Model Limit or Quality causes severe fps drops in PoF maps for some PCs. Reflections may or may not cause problems too. I also suggest ensuring V-Sync is turned off, as it causes fps to randomly lock itself to 15 or 30.

    For me, V-Sync and Character Model were what killed my fps, everything else got to stay max [shadows off] with a 60 fps limit to avoid heating up my gpu due to the game generating a lot of heat when ever I hit 120fps.

    From the balance patch. Spain. Baruch Bay. All day, from a PvP game to a stroll through a desert. 5-98 FPS.

  • So I've been playing for a while, and suddenly today I have huge lag spikes (slideshow level) whenever I turn (move the mouse). If I stay facing a single direction, im mostly fine, but while playing a mirage mesmer, you sorta gotta be mobile.

    I'm currently in England, playing on Borlis Pass (thinking of moving to a euro server, but that can't be the cause of this issue because i've been okay so far and been doing this for months now). I usually run about 60-80 fps in the zone im in (Harathi), but suddenly turning makes me drop down to 10-20 fps. I tried running the repair on it, but it keeps crashing, so looking for alternative approaches to fixing it. Was there an update recently that's causing this? Or something else?
