I already had to rely on VPN ti download parches in the past, but I Remember that they managed to solve this problem in a way we do not Need VPN Antenore... At least until now which seems to be worse since we are forces ti use VPN to properly enjoy the game...
One more thing we can try is running this software WinMTR with the EU server as target while running the game and seeing the results, it's like a constant traceroute which tracks the Best, Average and Worst results as well:
Awful, AWFUL performance on EU-PC since last update. FPS is fine, my connection is fine, but lag spikes and server timeout, especially on fast travel/zoning, have ramped up considerably in the last couple of days for me.
I still don't get why we are with German servers though. I thought the reputation of the German internet network wasn't the best in Europe (no beef)....why hasn't there been in a change in 7 years? Why are we still with the same provider if the connections are bad?

There is no way Cyrodiil atm is pop capped. Even with Midyear Mayhem, I feel like 3 bars is 100 people for each faction. If I’m not mistaken, Cyrodiil was designed for a population of 600 for each faction.
So imo, the large battles that you experience is nowhere near the large battles from years ago. Population is getting smaller but the lag is getting worse. Where is this headed?
These days for no reasons sometime the game kicks me out to desktop while playing, and the moments Just before this behaviour I have no lag and in game everything Is smooth, but in a Blink of an Eye I'm on the desktop and this isn't necessarly during pvp.
Performance are really bad these days, people complaing about latency, in IC on PC-EU getting out from the sewers required at least 8 attempts from me, I have these strange crashes (of they can be called so), and maybe more problems.
