I don't know for certain if what I'm experiencing is packet loss, but from what I've heard described of it, I think it may be the issue.
Every so often, usually every few minutes or so, my ping will briefly spike to 2 - 3 thousand for a few seconds. In WvW, this issue worsens when large scale fights are taking place, but this has always been a problem. It wasn't until recently that it became a different problem in which my ping spiking will become more frequent in large scale fights and behaves differently than "normal WvW lag."
If necessary, I can record my ping to share. I don't know how to describe the problem beyond my ping randomly spiking seemingly unprovoked in to the thousands and on a pretty regular basis. It's getting to the point it's feeling unplayable because in WvW I'm getting killed quite often because of it and I can't tolerate it anymore.
If anyone knows how to fix this, I'm desperately seeking a solution.
