I've never had this problem before, and I'm curious if this is plaguing anyone else? I've checked with my ISP, ran virus/malware scans, went as far as buying a new router/modem and every once in a while I get this insane amount of lag that leaves me unable to perform any action for upwards to 2-4 minutes. Usually ending with me getting killed. by a mob that I can't see nor fight.

Has anyone else been experiencing this problem before? All other online games I own work just fine, and are lag free. I'm at a complete loss here.

No lag on my end. However, I do experience a much longer loading screen, even just between waypoints in the same map. This longer loading problem has been confirmed by many others, too. ANET probably did screw something up somehow.

But as for lag, no. If it's problem for everyone all the time, then the forum and LA chat would have been exploded by complaints by now; so probably just a few isolated cases. Probably the official forum would be more helpful than here.

Yes, there were (are?) very serious issues with loading maps (too much memory for some computer configurations and lag). I could not log in without crashing on august 6. Now it seems better, but I dont dare to go to the celebration because my main chr who was on that map kept crashing until I finaly managed to leave the map. There's more info on the official support GW support site. Eventually set your requirements to minimal. Hope this helps.

Dirty rumor is that -despite- what your settings may say, your graphics have been reset on the client.

Do the standard jumping jacks... update your drivers (not beta versions), adjust your graphical settings, even if you just twig them to what you think they should be...

Also, yes, the Pavilion is laggy by default due to all the stuff happening there. It is basically PvE WvWvW.

It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

Aye, I was bitching about my performance issues after the patch here:

All of a sudden, the game seems to demand more resources and it almost melts my PC. It's almost as if some of the lower visual settings don't work and the PC is forced to run the game at very high settings.

Even on a 3k machine loading screens are 3 times longer, but I only get this in DR.
Everywhere else it's zoom, zoom, zoom. :cool:

A thing that happens to me sometimes is that I get disconnected, but the game doesn't take me to the character selection screen. So everything stops, I can walk around, but can't do anything. It takes around 2 minutes to take me to the toon select screen and tell me that I had an internet problem (or you can manually do this)

About the loading screens, I have the same problem. Divnity's Reach used to load really fast, but now I find myself looking at the artwork for almost one minute

Loading times are a lot longer. I presume its load their end as my HDD is idle for majority of the loading.

In areas with lots of players you can spot performance issues. Activate a skill? Hear it 5 seconds later.
