Diablo® III

Game unplayable. High Latency. Tests inside.

For a week or so I've been having latency issues, not always but perhaps only a few times a day.

The last 24 hours however, have been brutal. Jump from ~120ms to 600-3000ms. If I'm in a public game, I'm not sure if I cause the game to lag for others as well but entire groups end up leaving.

Adding a bunch of tracert and pathping. As you can see, hops 10-12 seem to be the issue(10 being the one with the highest numbers), and as far as I can tell those are blizz's ips.

aside from a small latency spike on the hops you mention of the tracerts there doesnt really seem to be anything wrong. you arent dropping connections and the pathping says there isnt really any packet loss to worry about.

did you make sure to do this while you were experiencing the lag you are having a problem with?

Even AH is behaving oddly. Takes a while to load tabs and auction log(20+sec)

all those tests were run while i was lagging/high latency. There was even one instance where I was kicked out of the game, not sure if I timed out or what.
