Be Careful what you wish for, Arenanet may give it to you . . . But wrong Category >.<

I always wish that someday Arenanet will accidentally send free gold to my wallet, the higher numbers and more digits are the better.

And they did send me the numbers, but not to my wallet!

This is not what I wish or ask for.

    To be specific, I do not use any other programs while playing GW2, living alone so solely internet user. The high ping really kill my gaming time, cant join meta evnets, cant do fractal, cant do Adventures in HOT, nothing...

    So I exit GW2 and close it completely. The. i play Starcraft 2 which has no issue at all. Clearly not my end!

    I play on SEA server for both GW2 and SC2 and they both merged to NA server but only GW2 has problem and it was recently, after the patch I guess.

    It's equally clearly not on Anet's end since a lot of players would complain. I suggest that you have a look at that link above that SlippyCheeze originally posted. It has some very good descriptions of how it works and how it may be that it hits only GW2 for you, and not SC2.

    That doesn't prove it's "not your end." It might not be your modem/router, but it could still be anywhere in between your local computer and ANet's servers. The only way to be absolutely sure if it's ANet's problem or not is to use pingplotter or send a traceroute to the IP and see where stuff is goofing up. Unfortunately if it's somewhere in between, it's unlikely you can do much.

    Agree with the above it very well might be a point to point issue. Half the time I play I am on bad connections but the response time is still relatively good to the server so the slower connection does not impact it. Also if you have software set on your PC that updates in the background that could impact you without you being aware. Microsoft, Malware, Virus apps, drivers, other game apps may eat up bandwidth without giving many signs outside of reviewing process threads on your machine. On top of that you have devices and connections that will throttle connections. Example: Satellite providers have in their fine print that your connection speed will be limited if you exceed a certain amount of traffic in a 24 hour period. The issue will start and then magically clear after a bit of time leaving you thinking it might have been the other side. If you haven't done a tracert, or aren't familiar with it google it, and take a look at your hops between yourself and the ANet server you are connecting to. That might point you in the direction to check, but if its between you and ANet there is not much they can do, but it would at least give you piece of mind of that its not you or them. Sorry for the ping rate, pings like that will kill online gaming, but the more you know about where the slowdown is the more you have to try and figure how to counter it.

    Besides what others have said:
    contact support with the details you have

    Whether you are correct (the problem is with GW2) or not, they can't possibly help unless they have some information about who is affected, when, by how much, how often, etc.

    It is possible for nothing to be wrong on either end and still generate lag. The fault lies with the ISP's, not either client. But, as you can see, the ISP customers would rather blame each other. If Internet were classified properly as a utility, this should be correct... but it isn't.

    Grenth is the god of Justice and Balance........ all things have a price that must be paid. And unfortunately Dwayna gives some kitten good gifts. So if Grenth is as fair has is written, then someone must had gotten an ultra rare drop in their box on that map. Lucky kitten.
