WTF is up with the lag....

Technical Support
How do you do rifts under set amount of time with the lag....
How to I get back Grift keys I have wasted.....
How is there this much lag in a game this old, have they not had enough time to make it lag free.....
Yup, every other game, website, app i have works perfect. D3 is unplayable because of the lag.....big surprise. Biggest video game company in the world cant keep their garbage pile stable for 5 minutes....
Game is unplayable, I go from 100 ping to 800, to 1700. Skills won't even activate, my ping just keeps going up and down.

Haven't had an issue since start of patch, something is definitely wrong.

DDoS?

I'm having same problems. I can play by myself for a small amount of time then I get lag. I try 2 players and insane lag. Everything was fine until about noon then it went to garbage.
Completely agree!
disconnects and lag spikes.
Massive lag spikes and disconnects today as well. Game is not playable at all.
Great isnt it an entire weekend day ruined by unplayable lag and i cant find a response anywhere to all these lag posts.
same !@#$ here, no solution i'm midwest/east coast. my friend that's in utah is playing just fine.
west coast here.. unplayable. dc every 5 - 10 minutes. I haven't played D3 since season 2.. what a time to come back! fix this blizz!
I'm actually reassured to hear that I'm not the only one having trouble, I'd thought it was all on my side.

That said, you'd think we'd get some updates about this...
lag for SA :(
Can confirm everything was fine until yesterday. Massive lag and spikes throughout the day. Disconnection 3006 and 3007 error. Tried Looking glass, traceroute was normal (180ms~) but no MTR results. Missed a great party with some friends, decided to give up playing for the day. Whatever is wrong hoped will be fixed soon.
anybody have any luck yet? i really wish blizzard would just own up already.. this is nonsense. i literally cannot play for more than 10 minutes at a time!
inb4 some guy comes in here rambling about reseting your conexion and other crappy setting that never work.Or make us post some traceroute and find an extra dot that is causing the lag, or some value of 0.0003 instead of 0.0002...

I've been having problems for the past week , pushing solo gr , making all act bounties , everything is screwed , i cant complete anything , i get dc every 5-10 min every 3-4 rifts or after roughly 1 act of bounties.
Yea I also am getting massive lag spikes, I have tried multiple "fixes" but nothing works. So close to finishing the season journey but it is near impossible to do the rest with this lag.

Any fix for this yet Blizz?
When I contacted tech support using online chat, reply was widespread problem. Test by changing computer internet properties to Google's DNS servers. Such may help some but not others depending where you live. Run windows update and verify no failed updates. Check motherboard site for driver / bios updates and verify all drivers up-to-date (video, audio, network, chipset).

Exit Diablo 3, then tweak D3Prefs.txt on hard drive (.../documents/diablo iii/...). Make the following changes, then save file. Afterwhich restart D3.
HardwareClass "2" (or 1)
Vsync "1"
DisableTrilinearFiltering "1"
ChannelsToUse "16"
