I've been playing for some time now, and had not much trouble with latency.
Since the last few days however my latency is jumping around like a yo-yo, 195-220 average with spikes of 880-950.
Can't level my Hardcore under such circumstances. Any Ideas what costs this? And can something be done about it?
Australia here. Used to some Latency Issues, but not as severe as now.
Run my Hardcore a few hours ago, and my Follower stopped following so I thought 'retreat'. walked towards the entrance of the map and there was no entrance, just mesh. I hit port and luckily made it out before something hit me.
That's not acceptable in my books.
I'm in the same boat as everyone here. I live in the US on the East Coast. Never had latency issues until just about a week ago. OP is spot on with the term yo-yo! I go from 99 up to anywhere between 300-1600 then back down to 99. This has the potential of happening 3-4 times every minute. Sometimes I go without lag for 5-10 minutes.
I had a tech come out to test my signals and everything was good here. I ran tracert and pathping but didn't see anything that crazy. It seemed some at&t servers took longer to respond than others but that was maybe 80ms to 100ms compared to 20-30 for other stops along the route.
If it isn't blizz or our ISP's could it be servers that we bounce to and from causing the issue? Just really odd that this just started happening in the past week.
The only other thing I can think of is a full re-install of windows and the game to see if the latency is still there.
while you are lagging do a tracert and pathping. then post them here.
