Diablo® III

Diablo 3 is the high latency gonna be fixed

When ever I play diablo 3 I can play flawlessly for 5 minutes then I lag like hell, about 300-750 is my ping. Its unplayable and I die alot. My internet is my ATT Iphone tethering and it's ok I can play Wow,COD,Battlefield3,and other games without problems or lag.
My speed test is 127ping, 1.5mbs-3.35mbs.
And I am wondering Do I need better Internet, or the ping problem will last for a couple of days to a month or 2
Please let me know so I can stop wasteing my time on this lagging crap
Also Im not Australian Im from Texas

800+ in toronto? that's sad. in vietnam with 4.5 (good) to 6.5 (bad) latency. impossible to stay alive (with a DH) while fighting the last act 2 boss. i tried switching to the europe region and same problem. tried going to the asia region and can't login. would be hard to read wtf people are saying because i don't know chinese or korean.

It's unplayable.... and no official response. I know the game is new, and there are a lot of concurrent users playing... but with 4 MILLION copies sold they have the cash to open up new server farms or whatever it takes to make this game play smoothly.

For me, I don't have a stable latency it raises and drops frequently if I take a portal to the next stage it will lag so bad I'm half dead by the time i reach the other end lol i live in NZ i even play games like DC universe and its US servers but there is 100% no lag in it >.<

Yeah Im on 40 mbs cable and have an average ping of 30-60 in every game except this one. At best Im around 260 and at worst (which it usually is) its at 400-1000.

This is a joke and completely unacceptable. Guess what Blizzard, your reputation is going down the pokemon/panda themed toilet. You are almost a week into release and this hasnt even been given an eta about.

This HAS to be fixed. Or at least tell us how to fix it.

about 300-750 is my ping
those numbers are pretty !@#$ and your true latency is about 10000 - 20000 since you can't do anything in like 10 seconds or more and after a min u dc

300 latency mean u will just have to wait less than half second . which is indeed fake .

Same thing! Ive gone on WoW to make sure its not my connection. I cant make it past the first act because of the lag. My fps is no longer my issue. my inconsistent latency has caused me so much frustration that ive given up on playing right now.

Hear! Hear! I am unable to play at all. Yesterday great, today 4300msec. Not on my end either. I can't believe they are ignoring this issue, at least say something Blizzard. I even opened a ticket to see if I will get a response.

Started playing the night servers went live and never had a latency problem till last night, last night and today 200-300ms shown in game, everything plays in slow motion, really annoying.

Did a test on speedtest.net, 20ms 35mbs down and 5.7mbs up, also tried playing with router QOS and whatever else I could think of. The problem is on the server side for sure.

I'm wondering if it's intentional to somehow help manage the load they can't handle? idk. super, ultra suck though. Nice that the servers are up now vs not but kinda not even fun to play in slow motion. Ugh.

I didn't have any issues until today. It's quite a bummer to work outside all day then come in and not be able to play a game I payed for because of something that can't be my issue. I play fighting games and Super MnC online all the time with no issues but now today i get between 300-2000 ping at times while playing
