Diablo® III

Help - latency/lag spike problem!

Hey machkhan, i was wondering if you guys have found anything conclusive on this issue?
Admittedly i rage quit for about a month due to theses issues because inferno is nearly impossible with the rubber band affix added to elites, and latency lag doesnt help either. Anyways ive started playing again recently, and still having issues.
However it seems it runs alot smoother if i play later at night (10pm- to early morning, mountain time) unfortunately i work at 6am, 6days a week so it takes quite a sacrifice to get a good session in.
I really enjoy the game when running smoothly, but thats few and far between. Ill continue to have patients because i know these things take a good bit of time, but could you tell if there is any progression made? Im afraid if i rage quit again i might not come back, i can be pretty stubborn !

Im having the same latency problems, it just happens randomly, an other game i play my ping is like 40 MS on diablo since release it was 40 - 70 which is good no lag. until 2 3 weeks ago every 10 minutes or so the ping would just jump from 70 to 200 300 500 1000 and stay around there for 1 2 minutes then go back down again its game breaking atm really sick of it. thought it would have gone away .

problems arent on our end or with our routers as i said other games work fine.

I have been dealing with spikes in my latency for about a week..or should I say WAS dealing with it. If this scenario sounds similar to yours listen up. I would be playing at 90-110MS and all of a sudden jump to 400+ at times for no reason. The game would be choppy and my charcater would not attack or move at times. After 5 day of calling my ISP and submitting a ticket to blizzard I went on my own and looked for a solution.

I found a website call fixmylag.com. I was hesistant at first, but it turns out to be legit and I have been running the program while playing Diablo for 2 hours now with no hitch in gameplay at all. SMOOTHE AGAIN!!! It does cost money to download the program, but $30 for 3 months seems worth it to me. The program also allows you to use it on PS3 and XBOX systems. So you can get more bang for your buck if you are experiencing lag issues.

I know this is like three years late, but I'm having some of the same problems.. Only experiencing the lag spikes on Diablo 3 (RoS).. Trying to update my whole computer and see how that goes, even though I got it all new a week ago and pretty sure everything is O.K. and up to date..
I'm obviously not a computer expert.
