    No. Not quite as bad in some situations but still very present.

    Well if it's improving even a little that's a good sign. Better than nothing.

    In short, no. Not at all for me. One of the patches along the way really screwed something up for me and nothing they have done since has alleviated it.

    We do have sound effects with the lag though. Every time you try to do an action that the jammed up server can't process you get to hear a "beep". Unfortunately for ZOS all this does is increase the angst that people have with PVP.

    It's still bad, even in PvE. I was questing last night and I had a few moments of extreme latency especially when swapping weapons....The patch seems to have actually made things worse with the wonderful warning sound now going off constantly. I actually preferred the constant "clanking" shadow barrier.

    It might get better on the 2nd day. i'm going to go home and reset my fridge and see if that helps.

    Hi folks, thanks for the responses. The sound effect some of you mentioned in this thread is not intentional and will be removed in the near future.

    We are eager to hear if 1.5.6 resulted in any improvements to lag, ability responsiveness, crashes, and/or freezing you were encountering in Cyrodiil. Please let us know, and provide as many details as possible.

    Lag - Still horrible and I don't play in NA primetime (Oceanic)
    Ability responsiveness - Seemed slightly better (including weapon switches)
    Crashes - Had my first crash in quite a while tonight (Other people crashed at the same time also, when a breach opened up at Alessia)
    Freezing - Didn't notice any freezes tonight (I usually get these every 10-15 minutes)

    My character controls froze several times last night, requiring /reloadui to correct.

    Multiple instances of lag and latency, especially bad around the big sieges that happened during the NA primetime period.

    At least one crash to desktop happened during the big siege I was referring to.

    No, it is not fixed. That being said there was extreme lag only once lastnight on Thorneblade NA. I think there was an improvement. Again though NOT completely fixed.

    If all those bugs, crashes and lags were, lets say...in Dragonstar arena, there would be hotfix in next day. But for Cyrodiil issues, to get fixed, need to wait for a long time, and when they fix old problem, new bug is at doorsteps.

    Still lag, but not a wide range like before.

    Early at south of Arrius Keep (Thornblade / NA). When I just arrived there, it didn't lag. Then 3 minutes later. DC got the scroll, the lag began until I went near the farm of Chalman Keep.

    When I was in the lag, it was very difficult to use skill. I could move but was pull back several times. I didn't know who knock me down that made me move by sliding. That's very funny. :D

    After that event. I post this. Maybe you can get the right time of occurrence.

    Other than the sound issues (which I fixed in the most part by temporarily disabling interface sounds), the server response to ability activation and weapon swapping has never been that great.

    I never had so much fun during intense battles as last night. Even during huge fights, abilities and weapon swap remained very responsive.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for all the comments, everyone. To clarify, the 1.5.6 tweaks to game performance in Cyrodiil are part of an ongoing effort that we're dedicated to continuing.
    @ZOS_GinaBruno‌ was this supposed to effect non Cyrodiil PvE, because last night doing quests in Reapers March I experienced some of the worst latency I have in a while doing PvE, especially while weapon swapping.

    If this happens try turn hood toggle on and off in your settings it was reported to fix the problem - presumably because you are letting your head cool off by taking off your hat.

    Yesterday evening (7:30-7:45 pst) when AD, EP, and DC were all fighting over DC's scroll at Arrius there was a pretty significant amount of lag. While it wasn't as bad as before the patch, skills were delayed and/or did not work even when fighting away from the keep.
    Unsubbed and no longer playing, but still checking the Alliance War forum for the lulz.

    I also had at least one endless load, requiring an ALT+F4.

    There's also the super long initial transit load after returning from a crash and logging back into Cyrodiil.

    Lag is there in big battles, but it's better. What's most noticeable is the fact that I can weapon switch, even when the fps/ping drops.

    No noticeable improvement in performance at all.

    The only reason there was only one extreme lag was AD did not continuously go after their scroll at kingscrest and they stopped after they failed at arrius that one time lag.

    Whatever the fix was, it didn't work. Please keep trying ZoS!

    That 'endless' loading screen you get after patching is most likely the game rebuilding its shader cache.
