Buckle up, this is gonna be a long one! I have an issue whereby entire zones, or sometimes just pockets of zones, cause a continuously worsening lag such that what I see on the client is behind actual game play by more than several minutes. This means I try to cast a spell, and am then locked out of all controls for several minutes until the client resolves it. Chat, and other features lag behind by the same amount. Other players pop in and out of existence, and warp all over. Obviously this makes these zones completely unplayable. I can simultaneously have another client logged in on a non lagged zone and be completely unaffected. When boxing I have also sometimes had one client lag behind slightly, while another is fine (ROFC, RSM) . Which is quite odd to watch. I play from Australia, and have an average ping to server of ~300ms. I have had friends who also live in Australia play here and there, and they also experience lag in the exact same zones, or parts of zones, as I do. Affected Zones: Mansion of Portals - Completely unplayable - trying to move through here with a high level character is a guaranteed death. Runnyeye - Completely unplayable - delay ramps up super quick Yclist - Completely unplayable - delay ramps up super quick Emberflow - Completely unplayable - delay ramps up super quick (have only been around entry so may clear further in) Remnants - Zone in area is fine (from murk), but if I move down to the river area it ramps up very quickly. Moving back to tunnel seems to clear it up eventually. Greater Faydark - Can run through ok, but certain parts of the zone ramp up the delay hugely Crags of Tarhyl - Completely Unplayable - Only in the section with mobs near SWOT zone, moving up into town it clears eventually Ruins of First City - Can sometimes get delays around the castle area Red Sun Mines - Can sometimes get delays near lesser fire imps/bridge area Greenmist Jungle - Only happens on rare occasions, and seemed to effect my other Australian friends more so than me. There are still a bunch of zones I've either never been to, or just forgot to mention, so this is by no means an exhaustive list What I've tried: Logs off Spells and environment particles off Relogging Refreshing Player/NPC Names off Countless combinations of different graphical settings Different PC's Different internet connections (even a 400/400 commercial fiber link) - no change! My suspicions based on pure speculation and no understanding of the client/server comms: Scripts with tight timings, that are near to or less than 300ms with retry on time out would potentially cause this delay blow out for my client because they just keep requesting and never get responses before the next request/retry... I would be more than happy to arrange a troubleshooting session with dev's to try any number of suggested remedies or fixes. Really I'm at a loss for how to be able to play in these zones, and some of them I feel a pretty important for progression, so I want to open it up for discussion, suggestions, sympathies, and all that... Thanks TLDR: Zone lag make sad!
