Hi I been facing very high latency after maintainence ranging frm 230ms to 1k+ ms up and down after Tuesday maintainence. Can u guys pls look into this issue. I called my local ISP and they did checks and they said nthing is wrong at our end . Its the weekends and I am unable to play the game with all the bad lags.....
Just tried something. Deleted the cache folder in Diablo 3 > Data_D3 > PC > MPQ's and deleted the .tfil and .mfil files in the main D3 folder. Ran the game again, which recreates these files and folders and takes a few minutes of downloading. Am now sitting on less than 200 ms. Will continue to play and see if this remains stable throughout the night.
I had a problem before, around after 1.05 or one of the minor 1.04 patches where Diablo wouldn't connect after maintenance. One of the suggested fixes was to delete .tfil and .mfil. I also remembered something like this happening to WoW and the fix was always to delete the cache, so I tried both. It ended up working then, and for every connection issue I had that happened right after an update or maintenance. I thought of trying it today when people were talking about how this happened after the tuesday maintenance.
@sylak I done that too but still latency around 250 ms to 290ms but much smoother than before maybe lesser ppl online atm. I've contacted the cs and they reply:.

Hi guys, can you do a tracert., esp singnet users. I sent in a support ticket and they say they suspect is my isp .
ie: the 2nd hop or 1st hop times out.
I tried it on my office wan (singtel ethernetlink lease line) and it also does the same thing. this is recent because I do communicate to singnet noc re latency to my china office some time in january and my previous routes to china do not time out at hop 1 or 2
I just want to see if its normal. singnet did a software upgrade to network on 21 mar 12mn - 7am cos they sent me a sms regarding restarting the ONT. it may or may not be related.
Tracing route to dispatch.kahuna.glbdns.microsoft.com [188.8.131.52]

can't be router. its a new asus 802.11ac router with latest firmware etc. and this lag behaviour is recent.
Me also using singnet fiber I phone them yesterday they did test and trace route and say problem nt with them and most likely blizzard issue. And weird part is this issue of high latency has never occure before and strangely only after last Tuesday server maintainence the latency suddenly went wild.

ok this seems to work
I noticed before i did this, act 1 games were mostly lag free, yet act2/act3 was laggy.
I just created an act 3 game and its green all the way.
will continue to monitor
I also did a few things.
a) restarted modem.
b) set primary dns on modem to 184.108.40.206 and secondary to 220.127.116.11
(googledns and opendns)
c) turned on QOS for diablo 3 (ports 1119,6881~6999 tcp and udp)
d) flush dns on pc ipconfig /flushdns

hmm. I just tested.
my friend also lags. I invite him to my act 3 game with no lag. he also has no lag.
I change to act 2 game. this act 2 game has lag.likewise my act 1 gam
seems like the lag is game specific. or its just a matter of timing again.. guess have to wait it out till next tuesday and see

Just delete last tuesday patch... which is 12or13th march file in cache folder and delete .tfil and .mfil files in the main D3 folder will do. It working well for me.. Don't need to delete whole cache if not you going to re-download everything take awhile.
I trhink you and i hit the same thing. we think our changes (reinstall/delete cache) worked, but actually the lag was intermittent. it came back 35 minutes ago. I suppose it did for you as well 16 minutes ago from this post.
in anycase, I'm still re installing 62.5% now.
