Diablo® III

Lag, lag, lag

Bad stuff. I had 200-300 latency before the recent patch. It's 1.5k+ now.

It seems as if the patch made it unplayable. Working as intended?

Posting on this topic once again.I've made a decision of not playing this game until they fix whatever is wrong with their servers.

For the last 2 days,I've been trying to finish the Siegebreaker quest on Inferno.EVERY SINGLE TIME I go trough Rakkis Crossing,I get the "game connection was lost" message before reaching the WP.And when I start a new game,I have to cross that entire battlefield full of monsters waiting to kill me.EVERY SINGLE TIME.

I've had countless deaths due to lag spikes and "rubberbanding".I can't reliably play this game without having to use SS everytime a ranged mob attacks me,because I never know if the game will allow me to actually avoid the projectile or if I'll simply br glued in place.

It's a shame,really.Never had this kind of problem playing WoW,tought it would be different with Diablo.I'll check back in a few weeks to see if things have improved or not.

I'm playing browse the AH. The Diablag just drives me crazy when I play. Other games are fine so along with all these other posts, I think it must be something on Blizzards end or something in the latest patch.

If you're having graphic lag, watch this video and do what he says, it really helped me out.
Granted, your graphics won't be as high quality, but it removed the lag for me! YouTube really does know all!

Seems like its a server problem to me and needs to be fixed. It I don't have this problem on any other game. Now that they have raised repair costs it seems crazy to be paying for deaths that would not have happened if the servers where working properly. Its not just happening to me but also my friends, so i see it happen a lot. Hopefully This issue will be dealt with, as it is the biggest problem in the game that is causing people to stop playing in my opinion.

Do you have network lag or frame rate lag?

Starting yesterday, I am getting severe network lag.

For those lagging, does the latency counter occasionally go up to 200 MS or higher (the green, orange, red bar next to the buttons in the bottom right of the screen)?

My system
I930 @ 4ghz., 6 gb. DDR3, GTX470 @ 725mhz., OS installed on 60 gb. SSD game on RAID-0
HDD, my avg. ping 70

Game mode and lag
Normal no lag
Nightmare no lag
Hell act I some lag, Hell act II more but playable, hell act III worse, playable with a wizard but not a Barbarian
Hell act III is as high as I have progressed so far.

I have turned off all back ground tasks, with no affect on lag
I turned down all video settings to lowest option available, no affect on lag

The lag issue is not on my side a specially with such low latency

I am glad my net is being a waste again... How do I get so much lag in just this game... I have no problem in anything else... have been disconnected 3 times during butcher runs with full stack the past two days... I guess the solution for me is to just not play during the day but stay up to unreasonable hours to play...

Right click shortcut properties Compatibility. Check mark Disable Visual themes, Disable desktop composition, Disable display scaling on high DPI settings. Then run game in windows. This helps when the games runs like its in slow motion and somtimes less lag after.
