Annoyingly high latency since yesterday. — Guild Wars 2 Forums

Annoyingly high latency since yesterday.

Like the title says. Ever since the patch came out, i've been getting high latency which causes 1-2 sec lag spikes.
At first it was happening only in instanced areas such as fractals or pvp, but today, it's all over.

Now, for open world it's not that big of a deal, but at fractal CMs, a 2 sec lag is basically a death sentence.

Most of my friends are also experiencing this since yesterday.

  • I've been having this issue, too, high latency and frame stuttering. Definitely not making jumping puzzles any easier. lol
    In my case, I think it might be a mixture of issues caused by the recent builds and the Microsoft and Nvidia Meltdown/Spectre updates clashing with each other. Hopefully doesn't last.

  • Me too, I transfered to EU on my main acc a month ago due to the massive increase in latency and constant RTO on NA after they migrated their server to amazonaws, and got perfect ping in EU, and after the last the update the lag is spreading to EU as well, I can't even play gw2 with my current account, or alt that is on NA.

  • Yeah me too, i can only loot 2 chests at palawadan meta

    Yup, my issues started of the same time, 5FPS/400+MS and game becomes unplayable and it is all random. Whats funny about it all with GW2 versus other games, is the other games don't have the same issues like GW2 has.........And my problem will clear up whenever I restart the game only to come back at some random time. Its frustrating to see they merged a bunch of threads into a general thread for a POSSIBLE DDOS 2 months ago.

  • To be clear, this is latency or lag, and not reduced FPS, right? (Sometimes people have both, but I want to know whether to merge this into a thread about FPS issues, so we can get an aggregate of people having issues.)

  • Lag and FPS kinda go hand in hand, Lag vs alot of people will lower FPS, mine does. I noticed this after the patch to, :)

  • Hello, I'm having the same issue. I've been lagging really bad since 2 days ago (the recent patch). It's really unplayable with 1-2 seconds delay + rubberbanding. However, my fps seems fine. I've been playing in NA server. Is there a support page to open ticket in guild wars 2?

    PS: I tried other mmorpg and there's no lag (WoW and Elder Scrolls Online)

    I've also been experiencing lag spikes recently (playing on NA from West Coast). It's definitely latency, not fps. Here's a screenshot:

  • Hy, from the last patch i cant play 1 thing without exp lagg... the ping is unstable in game, playing on EU...

  • I also made a thread regarding this in WvW thread.
    It is affecting alot of us (Aus) players.
    Ping just increases even if there is 5 players fighting.
    Extremely annoying when you are hitting the skill button and nothing is happening, or happens after 3seconds.
    I found issues with servers with IP begining with 34 or 35.

  • I am also experiencing this problem. Yesterday I could play perfectly, but today it is basically unplayable. Skills queue up without being fired, map transitions work only occasionally, mining and lumberjacking work for the first tick only. Insistence on interactions such as fighting or gathering results in a DC.

    FPS remains the same, no problems there. Ping fluctuates wildly, from high 200s to low 1000s. If it matters, I am playing from Spain. Speedtest and other services (including other MMOs) are working just fine.

  • I'm experiencing the lag spikes too. You begin to suspect in in a busy fight.

    When it takes 2 sec per click to put things into the bank in town, it's time to abandon ship for a while. Because, you WILL die in a busy fight.

  • yea please fix this, wvw is no fun like this!

  • It's really high Ping / Latency. There's also 'Skill lag' the arc dps 'r' starts fluctuating a lot. There is also zerg lag as ping shoots up to almost 5,000 when approaching a large group of players in WvW as well as in instanced content such as raids.

  • Normally my ping is normal and I can just play the game fine, like i litterly never have any issuse with my ping, and since 2 days ago, i get over 200+ ping, from just standing in heart of the mists. I can't play because everything is lagging. When i play any other game ( lol, wow, csgo) my ping is 10-15. I even did a speed test and got 5 ping. So something in gw2 is making me lag, really hard. I just closed internet, discord anything that uses internet and I'm still lagging really bad. :(

    Hi there, I used to have lagspikes too and it was not the fault of arenanet but another services provider on the way.
    You can use Pingplotter, it is a software that allow you to check your ping for each node you pass to.

  • I've pretty much given up on trying to play since this started happening a few days ago. It takes almost 5 minutes from the point of selecting a character to the point at which they are loaded in game. I clicked on a mail to retrieve an item and it took 2 minutes to complete that simple task. I can barely move without running off a cliff due to the high lag.

  • Same issue here, almost threw my keyboard into my monitor. Not happy.

  • same to me.... lag spikes 400-2k ms
