I wonder if it is already deployed on EU ?!
Any informations on that ?

The lag yesterday evening was the same as always.
10 sec freezes were quite common

We've released two hotfixes so far that address Witch Doctor related lag, and further optimisations are in the works that should address the remaining issues that are still affecting WD performance today. It is a tricky issue though, so we have to be careful that any changes that we may do via hotfixes won't result in a loss of power for the class.

They manage to fix really quick the bug with hellfire amulets and they can't fix the problem with lags....Just AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

These are two very different issues, the latter being much more complex and difficult to address.

GREAT... now we have the WD lag fixed "soon"
Now only the normal remaining lag should be fixed.

These things are pretty much two sides of the same coin. Other classes are also experiencing lag in some situations, but the Witch Doctor class has been one of the most heavily affected. I want to reiterate what we have said previously on this topic; We have released a couple of hotfixes already that address some of the lag affecting Witch Doctors, and we are working on further optimisations.

Finding the skills combinations, build synergies, and other situations that result in lag is an ongoing process, but we have to be very thorough as well as careful when fixing these things.
