This evening i'm suffering heavy massive amount of lag, and it is extremely irritating. I tryed putting /clientport 80 on GW2 shortcut, but nothing changes. This is the first time i am suffering such an huge amount of lag in this game. My connection is fine and i can do everything without any problems.

Got any suggestions?

What is the lag like?  Is it a consistent, frequent lag or is it more sporadic?

I've been running into some issues similar to this lately, but I'm still trying to narrow down the issue.  I know for a fact it's not my connection since the computer next to mine plays the game 100% lag free at the same time I play using the same connection and I've ran a server ping while playing that experiences no packet loss, even while the lag is occurring.

I did find that I had an out of date video driver.  I updated it this morning, but haven't gotten a chance to see if that fixed the issue for me.

video driver causing massive lag? Mmmmm i doubt on this. Anyway, yesterday evening i had some serious lag issues -just for GW2-, heavy lag on everything i did. I had like 3-4 seconds delay on skill usage, and at some time everything stopped; just to restart like 20-30 seconds later.

Yea, updating the video driver did nothing for me...I'm really at a loss for what is causing this. =/

I've been getting a lot of lag lately as well. It seems to have cleared up today.

It may in fact be caused by your graphics settings.  Lowering the LAST TWO graphics options to lowest commonly resolves a lot of rubber banding and latency issues for whatever reason.

ok @davadude, but the thing is: "why just today?" I always play with medium-high settings with 0 lag and 60-70 fps.

The servers have their ups and downs.  I do know they are in the process of updating their data centers.
