As many of you know, we recently performed server maintenance late last evening, Australian time. This maintenance was part of our ongoing efforts to provide an enjoyable gameplay experience for all players, and we are continuing to work around the clock to ensure that your time in Sanctuary is fun, engaging, and issue-free.We’re aware, however, that some players are still encountering latency while playing Diablo III and would like to learn more about Aus/NZ in-game experiences. In some cases, your issues may not be specific to the region, and we’re working our absolute hardest to address these concerns as soon as possible. In other cases, we believe that your issues with in-game latency may have been resolved by recent hotfixes. Because of this, we’d like to know what your play experience has been as of today 3:00 p.m. [Australian EST]. Please provide as much information as you can, including what kind of latency you’re experiencing, how long it’s been occurring, and what steps (if any) have been taken to resolve it. If you are experiencing technical difficulties outside of latency, then please use the Battle.net Support site or Support forums for assistance with troubleshooting any problems you may be having downloading, installing, or playing the game. Thank you so much !

Ping has been horrible today - it's just as bad as it was last night before whatever maintenance you did.Your maintenance did not fix the ping issues for me.My ISP gives me ~130ms to West Coast USA servers in all other games.In this game I'm seeing pings at a minimum of 170ish (but usually 250ish) only on American offpeak hours, onpeak it's now ALWAYS 350ms-400ms and worse. The latency meter bar is currently an orange coloured bar, and the bar isn't full (2/3 bars full). This is how it gets soon as all of the USA logs onto the servers. I have already submitted a tracert to your technical team, and it shows no problems at around a 130ms ping - it would seem soon as your servers get my incoming connection they somehow dump a whole lot of latency on top. Servers don't respond properly to long distance connections perhaps? Tell your engineers to fix this mess.We need local servers actually based in our area - this service is unacceptable.
I've had great ping all night since I got home at 4pm NZST (Wellington NZ). Been nothing but great. Beat the Act IV boss even.I was playing single player though. Maybe it's worse multiplayer

Had no problems never actually checked my ping but was 100% lag free now lagging the whole time on constant 300 bouncing to 500. This just ruins the game when can't even play solo without lagging my !@# off lost a hardcore character and everything because its so bad.
very noticeable for me in WoW - at least for someone that is used to it and compensates - but it is doing weird things in D3. The monsters keep jumping around and attacking you while you are stuck unable to do anything. Twice in the last 5 minutes I have died to a group of mobs - act 2, NORMAL mode - because I suddenly am unable to react to what the mobs are doing while the server continues to have them attack me. I am playing mainly because I am interested in the harder difficulties but if I am dying regularly in normal from this issue I don't even want to try Nightmare. While WoW does show some issues with latency, the speed at which things attack you and you have to react in this game coupled with the fact that when it occurs, the mobs "blink" like mages from one spot to the next and when you do end up casting the spell you clicked on 5 seconds ago it's casting in the wrong spot, it makes it very painful to play.
If your on xp you should open some ports, same ones from wow should work, thats just what sorted mine, i was like yours yesterday .... also aus isps do not work efficently at all. youd be better going with telecom (if its in your area ) or woosh if its in your area cos it goes through nz for better speeds ( IKR) nz has better net, i had to go there to experiance it lolz
