yep same problem here, i test my internet on 2 different sites, im getting 25megs all day and i cant play d3, i start getting lag spikes every 5 seconds or so and its unplayable.
Im getting the same problem. takes about half an hour to join a game and then i cant do anything once im in. When i play solo i also experince the same problems. The bar is usually green but when i hover my mouse over it, it sais 0!
Same prob for me=S Started on Friday.
MS jumps from 250-2K.
Never had this problem before.
Speedtest.net: 14Ms
Yea, same issue here.

Decided to swap WOW for D3 since I never gave it a decent thrashing but the games unplayable.

Have tried several times over the past 18 hours or so, with the same results:

Logs into the game as per normal.
Ingame, character can move/attack freely but the world around him is 'frozen'.
Latency varies from 200 (I'm Oceanic) to 1.5k, but game performance doesn't vary with it.
Every 30 seconds or so, the game catches up and gives me a new 'snapshot' of where I actually ran too, and what's beating on me.

Like others, my nets not the fastest, especially given I'm on the other side of the world, but this problem is purely related to D3 as I have zero problems with WOW, browsing, streaming and playing other games, mostly on steam.
I'm having the same issue but my latency is the same. Every 30-120 seconds, everything lags. My skills are delayed and it takes a few moments for it all to catch up.

Sometimes it's really bad... I had this issue last night and tonight. Usually never seen anything like it...

Ran every virus scan, spyware, defragged, everything... It's not my end... Something is up with the blizzard servers.
Same here which has made the game for me unplayable now. Within the past two days I've been having extreme latency spikes every minute or so. It goes from a normal 205 msec and suddenly drops to 1200 msec, jumps to 600 msec then hovers around that for about one to four minutes and goes back up to normal only for the cycle to start again. The rubberbanding is so bad that oftentimes I can't move from one spot and when that happens I disconnect. Several of my friends have experienced this so it's definitely not from my end.

My Internet connection's fine, everything's upgraded/updated, background programs that eat up a lot of memory/bandwidth have been turned off, graphics are on the lowest settings and I'm nowhere near the Sandy storm either. It has to be the servers.
I think there is a problem with an inbetween ISP on the east coast.. if anyone is having the same problem from the west coast please let me know

blizzard, something has changed recently (past few days)

my latency is off the charts and the game is unplayable. can we please address why this may be happening to some of us and what is in the works to fix it?

its clearly not client side in my case... Something changed and we deserve to know what happened and what is being done to correct this problem?

Praying for the blue reply on this matter

I had SOME latency issues prior to the patch, but after the patch the game is literally unplayable for me now. Half the time I try to start the game it gives me an error, and if I finally do get in a game I click stuff and nothing happens until like 2 minutes later when everything happens at once.

same problem ping shots up to 4000, cast animation but no effects cant play at all now ping constantly above 1000, league of legend is like always under 200ping ...
Same problem for me but actually i can play 5 min and the game freeze 5 min i play 5 min and the game freeze 5 min ...
But i am not disconnected from the game
wow so much page ya im getting a bing bag of lag and nor client side also my isp are great only ping 38,if that gonna be not check it think i gonna that a break lag suck!
Blizzard, what's the deal here? If you need additional info from us, please ask. If you are already working on a fix, please say so. If you are just writing us off and deciding it's not worth the resources to fix, I'll take that at this point, but please let us know. We have been waiting to hear something about this issue for weeks at this point. This lack of communication is totally unacceptable when so many of us can no longer use the product we purchased from you.
!@#$ing fix your %^-*ty !@#$ game lag
no blue will reply to this. i'm doubly sure of it.

the problem is extremely similar to the situation after launch that persisted for a few weeks (close to a month).

back then, all the traceroutes came back without t/os because AT&T didn't block their hops. after about a gabazillion traceroutes from a gabazillion people (ok, i'm exaggerating there. it's more like a few thousand) it all returned the same result: that one particular attens hop was choking and causing the latency issues.

after that discovery, AT&T blocked all trace routes to their hops.

all that was on a topic that bashiok started to 'troubleshoot' the latency issues after hundreds of threads were posted about the same lag problems, with all the blues on 'damage control' insisting that it was something on the players end, and telling them to check X and replace Y and do Z. after trying to (and failing) to troubleshoot the lag issues the first two people had on the thread, no blue posted anything else. after a little less than 2 days, the topic reached 20 pages, and was quietly locked and buried in the depths of tech support forum.

no blue has posted regarding latency issues since then (keep in mind this happened weeks after launch). i think it's blizzard's company policy to keep radio silent on those issues now.

i think blizz fiddled around with something, or gave AT&T a earful or whatever, cos most of the latency problems cleared up after a while. and while there were the occasional lag spikes, it wasn't anything to post about.

but now the problem is backkkkkk
I also experienced lag, this is after the last patch update. Hardly playable.

My DSL is Bayantel and I'm from the Philippines.
I've been having the same problem since today morning. I didn't have this yesterday. I frequently get 10-20 seconds of lag. Map 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.
this is the same way with me. This is the only game that is pretty much unplayable. The lag is so bad that it takes me forever to get a mission done and my guy moves in slow mo. I know its not my internet.
