So Much Lag

When I logged in a few weeks ago my ping was fine, and it was fine 12 hours ago but I logged in today and my ping, which usually averages around 60, is bouncing between 72 and 180 with 4,912 heights in lag spikes. It's making pvp almost unplayable and it's happening in pve even when I'm just standing there. When I talk to other players they also are saying they're having varying degrees of lag, usually in spikes, not consistent lag. Are the servers having issues? Do we know when there will be a fix?

    i dont think thats a problem thats coming from the servers.

  • yea, been having a similar issue, i'm mostly in wvw, which i kinda expect to have some at times partially on reset, but today went in and was just unplayable ping was jumping all around from min around ~80, in battle can expect between 100 to 200, but i was just getting reset lv ping which is 4500 which i found ridiculous

  • You should run a tracert command and validate it's not your home network or your ISP first.

    After Lunar New Year patch, I'm getting enormous lag spikes that hit hard and DC me within about 5 minutes of loading in.

    I know it's not my ISP because youtube videos and everything else loading just fine.
