PVP lag

Can we take a moment and acknowledge that the most recent patch did indeed reduce lag? My PR peaked yesterday in Cyrodiil at only 200 in a zergfight. There was some weird glitches but overall responsiveness of the game was better than before.

It's still NOT perfect, but it seems ZOS is actually working on it, which is good.

    PR has never even been linked to lag for me. I don't think its ever gone over 450 but still have 10+ sec delay on skills etc. PR can be at 200 with ridiculous lag still.

    I think the impulse spamming blue blob at Kingscrest (Thornblade EU) yesterday evening would challenge that assertion. With a peak ping of 2500ms, I would also challenge it.

    On a similar theme, my missus has tasked me to clean out and organise our tool shed... In fact she has been waiting for some time for me to begin doing it, after it taking a full 6 months for me to acknowledge the need. A couple of days ago, I bagged up some of the clutter and put it to one side and moved the lawnmower away from the door. Do you think she applauded my efforts?

    Hello sofa, I've missed you ^^

    Before patch I was hitting random pings from between 300 - 12000. Hell, I was standing in Roe with no one about getting 800 pr. Against that, the last patch has made a vast improvement on that. There are still cases of lag, but the unplayability of stupid pings has been solved.

    To me, lag was always connected to PR. And I've noticed a significant improvement last night on Thornblade EU.

    @VagabondAngel, I'm not sure if your wife did applaud your efforts, but I - a random stranger on the internet - am proud of you :) Even a small improvement is something worth cherishing and celebrating, lest we become victim to our own bitterness.

    I will not, as yesterday on TB EU we had some terrible lag. Couldn't open doors or use abilities and i was stuck in the shield charge animation so many times that i ended up removing it from my bar temporarily as i couldn't stop my self using it even though i knew it was going to bug out.

    In fact, what i have noticed since this latest update is not only does the server still lag out during peak fights, but now my sounds also have delays/lag in playing 1-2 seconds after the action.

    Does seem a bit better, I did encounter some lag, just not as devastating to my game play as in the past, so what ever they are doing keep doing it, they did say it would be in a few patches.

    Not really any AD trains running too much, will be more this weekend and we can test it out

    Sunday, funday.

    That'll be the real test.

    In other news, I know we (AD) have been slacking, but I have been impressed by the level of large organised grouppery (is that a word?) that DC are displaying lately. Am not only talking about braxy either.

    We had a small group yesterday 8-10 and wherever we went a blue group of 20+ would show up within 2 mins max to wipe us.

    I have to stress the 2 mins because it was impressive. I mean at some point we took Nikel and before we could repair the walls a large group came and wiped us. One of us stealthed inside and rezed us all after they were gone. We cleared the NPCs and then put a ram from inside to bring the door to 50% which is required for the flags to be changeable.

    Once we brought the door to 50% we proceeded to change the flags and went back to repair the door only to find a big group had already turned up and was putting siege against the door from the outside.

    I was like: "WTF? How did they get here so quick?". Another time we went to take bleakers and again, Oswolf's group this time turned up (DC had Chalman mind you, no reason for htem to be spawning there) before the outpost was even put under siege!

    Mightily impressive response times. Kudos smurfs, kudos!

    All the guilds on DC work together, It probably wasn't working too well the last Thornblade as we put a lot of focus into Azura and the TDA alliance was split over 2 campaigns.

    But now we put more focus into Thorn.

    Definitely better in my opinion. It still happens but there's much less of it and I don't think it's as bad when it does happen - mostly. I've been fairly rude about this issue a few times, so it's good to be able to be positive.

    Its the same here, The lag outside of Roebeck tonight was atrocious a little bit ago, 999ms pings.....as soon as I ported to the other side of the map, lag gone.

    just tested my connection, I have around 25-40 ms ping anywhere in the United States, yet ESO will have periods of intense lag like this...oh and I was lagging at 60 fps....

    This patch done nothing to improve it for me, its the same as it was prior to this patch, I see no real change...in big zerg fights, the lag is still there...regular keep fights may be a little better, but that's about it.

    I have ran DSP reports line quality testing on my line for 2 weeks straight, connection comes back clean...it snot my connection...or anyones for that matter, its the server...for whatever reason it lags at the most importune times.

    oh and weapon swapping stopped working for me twice tonight requiring relogs to fix. That's a new one, never had that problem before in this game, and I been playing since April.

    Nonono, don't waste your energy blaming anyone - the impulse/hs spammers do what the game allows them to do. And since ZOS is not calling it an exploit, it's simply their design decision so if you reeeeeaaaaallllly need to blame someone - poke ZOS and encourage them to
    a) redesign/change this mechanic or
    b) still work harder on making the client-server communication better.

    Last night was pretty big on Thornblade EU and the peaks went a bit higher for me again, but it was still better than before the patch. I hope they will get this sorted soon.
