Constant lag

#1 Posted by Vitor (2822 posts) -

My university connection has never blocked any games and I just downloaded the 3.1GB file for Indie Game: The Movie in 5 minutes. I don't think I have a connection problem, but I just got killed in act 2 due to a lag spike that left my character immobile.

This has happened far too frequently. Is it server load? What the hell? I'm not playing with anyone but it just doesn't feel right at all. I only started playing again today as my exams are done and I was having similar problems before. I'm in the UK and have my server set to EU but still no luck.

IIRC, they just deployed a patch today so the servers are probably getting hammered pretty hard. I guess the only thing you can do at this point is wait it out.

Laggy as shit here tonight for me. Running a ping to my company's Exchange server from home and it hasn't deviated at all, but 4-5 times in the past 2 hours I have died when the game just stops responding to actions in the middle of fights.

It's really starting to grate on me, Blizzard really needs to fix their shit.

Yeah, well that lag spiked just got me fucking killed on Inferno Diablo third phase with a SLIVER of health left. Royally pissed.
