Frequent, hard lag spikes...(1)Category: GeneralApril-30-2016 11:58 PM PDT (3 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
hey all... figured i'd try this here since tech support can be slow'ish this time of night... i'll try there later...

but since the season started i've been getting frequent, hard lag spikes.

I'll be sitting on a green bar, ~90 ms and all is well. Start to do basically anything and within 1 minute i'll get a spike where everything stops moving for 1-4 seconds and then starts again. The lat bar goes yellow, then red (1000+ ms) then back to green and we start again.

Sometimes it happens as frequent as every 15 seconds or so. I've been dying a lot because of this and its starting to get annoying :(

None of my friends are reporting the same problem so it seems to be my end... but...

WoW runs smooth, 75ms for over an hour trying it.
Dark souls 3 and Destiny on ps4 are green bars all day.
Guild wars 2? Green bar
Even did an online stability test thing and got that rating me at a steady 32ms.

I'm on time warner cable 50M package.

So... why only d3? And why now? At first i thought it was just server lag because of the new season but... apparently i'm shouting into the darkness when i ask if anyone else is having the same problems...

any ideas general forum? :(
