Last time I saw this it was capped, but it's been expanded :D

Region in Aus/NZ: Sydney NSW
ISP Name: Telstra Bigpond
Connection Type: Cable
Latency Range in game: 180 - 2500
Average Latency: 220

Tonight, for example, my latency has been mostly fine - except every few minutes (+-5 or so) it spikes up for around 30 seconds to 1500, then settles down. My flatmate is on wow at the same time, no issues.

Latency Range in game: 210 - 2000+
Average Latency: 375

Until 2-3 weeks ago I would have said that my average Latency was about 250
Recently, it has been spiking wildly (every minute or so) from 219 to over 1500 like a yoyo
It will then settle somewhere in the 350-400 range

I would like to reiterate that this is recently
Until 2-3 weeks ago I would have said that my average Latency was about 250

*EDIT: I download content patches etc at over 800KB/Sec non-P2P so my connection speed is clearly sufficient. It is only "in game" that I suffer so badly


Same issue here. Massive lag spikes since Wednesday.

ISP Name: TPG
Connection type: ADSL 2+
Latency range in game: 215-4500
Average latency: hovers around 200-300 most of the time but near a spike it's 1k plus.
Region in Aus/NZ: Melbourne
ISP Name: TPG
Connection Type: ADSL 2+
Latency Range in game: 200-2100
Average Latency: 250

The spikes only started happening since 1.0.3. Game would freeze for 15 seconds then it would fast forward to catchup.

Someone on the whirlpool forum are saying its packet loss between us and XO Communications in the US ... but no idea if this is the case.

I sincerely look forward to Blizzard doing absolutely nothing to remedy this, whilst continuing to tell their customers that the fault is on their end.


Been a good 6 years since I played WoW but good to hear nothings changed :)

This thread is a waste of time .
Its been a month since this was started and still no comment.
Think it was started just to make people think they will do something about it.

Average Latency: this is difficult to say as it seems to be getting worse. I will get good stretches lasting up to 5 minutes of 300-500 ping, then lag spikes lasting up to half a minute. Most of the time I can play for a couple minutes, then get a spike which will dissipate or disconnect me. I get disconnected about twice an hour.

Latency Range in game: 290-1500 (spikes constantly)
Average Latency: 350

Still pretty much the same as before, although been getting 250's during quiet periods, seems the amount of server traffic at the time really makes a massive difference. I think you guys may need more / better servers at the very least.
I have 2 plans on 2 difference places in Melbourne.

Region in Aus/NZ: Melbourne, Victoria
ISP Name: Optus
Connection Type: Cable
Latency Range in game: 220-950ms
Average Latency: 330ms
around 900ms is only for couple of secs, then it goes back to 330

ISP Name: Optus
Connection Type: Cable (with premium speed)
Latency Range in game: 180-950ms
Average Latency: 220ms (sometime it stays around 300)
same thing happens as above, it rarely goes up to 900.
But when it does, it only stays for couple of secs then it goes back to average.

very occasionally, i will get maybe 5-10 seconds without serious latency issues, but for the most part, my latency goes up and down like a roller coaster...first noticed this saturday 23/06/12.

given the number of aus/nz players, would an australian based server not be a good idea? i know, big cost involved in that, setup time, etc. but at this rate, a LOT of customers (including me) are going to get fed up with this and stop playing...

1.0.3 has killed me. Already posted but things are worse than ever.

Region in Aus/NZ: Sydney
ISP Name: iiNet
Connection Type: ADSL2+
Latency Range in game: 400-1500ms
Average Latency: 450ms (UNPLAYABLE)

Capitals for emphasis. 3 or 4 nights in a row now I've been unable to play due to the high latency.

And yes I gave up this morning when the servers were down yet again, Always online BS for the AH which ruins the game experience anyway.

Way to ruin a game series GG.

After the new patch, it seems there is lag spike from time to time.
Any update from Blizzard to resolve the lag?
even a small tiny update would make our AU/NZ community happy.

My biggest issue is rubber-banding and random disconnects. My latency rarely changes from 250ms but sometimes I'll get booted from the game every 30 min, which of course clears my map, and my NV buff.
The rubber banding makes it almost impossible to fight elites in inferno. I'll tempest rush or just run out of plague or desecration only to find my self back where i was standing 1 second ago...
