Diablo® III

Constant Lag

Same here. I've been having the same problem since today morning. I didn't have this yesterday. I frequently get 10-20 seconds of lag. Maps can't load, monsters and players stop responding, nobody moves but me. My connection is fine, I didn't have this problem till today. I think there is something wrong with the servers.

+1 For this, Downloaded CPUID Hardware monitor and noticed the following:

GPU when idle : 45c - 50c

GPU when running games like Borderlands 2(2hrs), Torchlight 2(1hr) : 65c - 78c

GPU when running D3 : 75c - 91c

D3 Fully burns my card (GTX 555), causing BSODs and i'm sure like many others, this is NOT a card issue. There are many who have better cards having the same problem as us.

We all have tried what Blizzard told us to do in their many support tickets.
-Download new drivers
-Clean the GPUs
-Check for overclocking (Which D3 pushed my card to do)
-Turn on V-sync / Checking C:Drive to prevent stuttering etc

To no use. I get fluid FPS in other games, both Online and Offline, yet crap when it comes to D3.


true, my duel gtx 470s run over 90 on d3 lol, when i have vsync on.... without vsync they go over 100c lolz, they always have on d3 since release for some reason haha

Ok the lag started again since about 2 days. Still cant play. Blizzard only says to do stuff we already did. They dont give us a response. Dont know what else to do. Calling on the phone says they cant us; to post here on the forums. I took my time to gather post and tell people to post on 1 post so we can have it organized, but still blizzard doesnt care about it and dont even respond here. So id say keep spamming new posts to see if they at least try to help us out since they wont respond here or have a sticky of any kind.

SPAM NEW TOPICS OF CONSTANT LAGS!!

Game has become unplayable since 1.05. Granted, I don't have the best computer (I'm running it off my laptop), but before 1.05 I had zero problems. I tried dumbing down every setting and there was no change in the amount of lag I'm suffering from. My repair costs have gone through the roof as I find myself getting demolished by arcane sentries that are nowhere near me or by devastator pools that haven't even spawned on my screen yet. I was really excited when the new patch came out, but this is ridiculous. I want my Diablo back! FIX THIS ISH!

Bump. To the management of Blizzard, only if you are brave enough to acknowledge the problem and fix it.

I love lagging in a single player run, its fantastic. No seriously its awesome because I died by a skull cleaver while I was frozen then got disconnected! /sarcasm off

The decision to have solo play require an internet connection is dumb at best. I've lagged out once every day for the past 3 days in a row.

Network lag here.

Usually about the time I get 5 stacks, but generally at random intervals, I am getting booted. To troubleshoot, I ran a ping -t to the default gateway of my DSL's subscriber subnet( eliminating connectivity between my demarcation point )also to the provider's central switch, one of my provider's core routers, my provider's DNS box, and google.

Here's a tracert to the US battle.net IP

At the same time, I had a ping -t going to google with no drops during this time. The best publicly provided info I can find to further test is doing a tracert only to 12.129.209.68, but, alas, this ( probably wisely so ) doesn't respond to pings.

Is there another address that could be substituted as a proof of concept that traffic going through my ISP's network is not reaching battle.net in anything resembling a timely fashion? Not that I am asking for my own Autonomous System number in BGP or anything like that, but you would think that an ISP who is all someone can get in certain areas would make an effort to have serviceable routes to some of the larger content providers in the world.

I have had quite a few rounds with tech support who really are only trained to tell me to reset my modem...

TIA
