Channeled and cast times on abilities in lag

I play from Australia and would say I get a minimum of 300-450ms of lag, most of my friends have quit over time as it has become so unbearable and punishing to play with, however I persevered and continue on, however a few key abilities and especially with changes this update I have no counter to certain things and are unable to do certain things.

Abilities like wrecking blow, arguably the best stam spammable this update is unusable for me as within the moment I use it the target Im tracking is not where they are on my screen and leaves me barely able to connect one, on the other hand I am an ez clap from the ability as what I am seeing is almost half a second behind its quite easy for me to take 2 without even being able to see Ive been CC’d, and leaves me unable to simply walking out of the range like most people do.

Ultimates that have had a .4 second cast time added has also created a major issue causing with lag almost a 1 second delay to my ability to ulti, making landing an AOE almost impossible and comboing a ultimate incredibly difficult, these changes essentially have created a bigger connection based disadvantage to all players not within the region they play in and continues to make PVP a laggy buggy nightmare.

    Yeah it sucks. Almost everyone hates the change, meaning it won't be reverted.

    I play with a high ping as well, and the ultimate cast times are really messing up my rotations, delaying everything that comes next. The fast-paced combat is my favourite feature in ESO, I don't like anything that hinders it, and these cast times are a really bad addition, especially with lag.

    They changed their minds about the shield cast times. But I have a bad feeling about this one.

    I'm reminded of those Tom Petty lyrics

    Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
    You can stand me up at the gates of hell
    But I won't back down

    Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
    And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
    Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down
