post #25671 of 30003
^sweet jesus, you're a Canuck? I might have to fire up my WD again! tongue.gif

I have been playing him...or more importantly, passing the fugg out while sitting in town or in speed 60's. I ran a barb to a lowly 58 (can't seem to get good gear for him) but he's just so...slow compared to WD. It's interesting cause during S3 once I went barb I barely bothered going back to WD cause he was so slow. Now I almost can't stand playing barb cause he's so slow. Thinking about firing up a 'sader cause the Hammerdin build is one of my favorites. I ran a decent sweep build during S3 but that was really slow feeling.

Nope. Its not ISP, it is completely server sided and a well known entity for this seasons. It doesnt affect one person at a time, it affects all players in the party at the exact same time, for the exact same duration.

As a pull barb in a Monk/monk/sader/barb team, I cannot use:
AD
LoH
Pain enhancer
Efficacious Toxin
Rend
Ground Stomp<-- this one really chaps my butt, it is such a good skill for grouping mobs into tight little balls.

Any of those left in will result in lag, and probable death

^I was wondering why Ground Stomp wasn't used. That is such a sweet skill and what I used to use for GR keys.

I hope JT gets up on stage when he is lit like a x-mas tree and shows his backside, while screaming "I got your D3 servers right here!"

EU and USA use the exact same servers, and should have the same amount of lag. Asia realm has the servers run by a third party provider instead of Blizzard, and have less lag- but there must still be some lag, since they aren't going as far as running helltooth in groups.

I don't think Blizzard spins down servers on a daily basis, so you can actually get less or more lag depending on how many people are playing at the moment... pointing to load balancing and not having enough servers to prevent the lag being a large culprit.

Yep, it's completely server sided lag. It doesn't matter if you're across the street from the servers with a LAN connection to the datacenter, or are playing from Australia on Dialup. The servers really need a "time dialation" mode like EvE when your pack gets too big... start running the game at 1/4 speed or whatever the server needs to keep up.

lol - while I'm sure it isn't quite that bad, it probably isn't much better. tongue.gif
I guess I've been lucky cause I haven't had any issues other than the occasional hiccup due to server lag or what not. E.g. - cesspools used to be bad regardless of what anyone ran on. if you weren't aware, (the other guy Hawk, not you Eden) D3 is locked to 60fps (I think?) so if you run a super-poo monitor @ 144Hz, etc., you may actually be fighting yourself. There are also issues where you can drop audio quality to make it run better, etc. I'm sure if you look up D3 performance there are a whackload of threads, including this one, but I'm not sure if anyone ever captured all the tweaks and added to the first post.
so how are you able to finagle all o' that. I'm not the biggest Linkin' Park fan, but I'd go to a concert for free, along with afterparty fo' sho'!
This girl I know used to work with a lot of people and companies in the industry. She made a post on fb offering blizzcon tix for ex military people (she had a bit of a soft spot/thing for marines).
While I was never in the military I just said screw it and said I'll take one, and it worked. Super excited, never been to blizzcon before, and it'll be nice to get away for the weekend.

That is a very real possibility, I wouldn't put it past me to shout out "what the eff is Eden supposed to do with all that gold?" While drunkenly on stage

thanks for the responses everyone. I am not running sli nor 4k, just a 27" asus 1080p monitor with 60hz refresh. It seems since the last patch performance has gotten worse, maybe it's just me, but it makes playing very frustrating to say the least lol

When I play with my Clan mates we always make sure to have no points invested in area damage, this helps a lot with lag and it doesn't seem to matter if it is a Hell tooth WD or my SSS/EP Monk, any area damage cause mass lag for everyone in the game.
I remember one of the points that Blizzard made for this seasons patch was they had fixed area damage to make it a viable skill, please define "fixed"

The Koreans do still see lag enough to where they've mentioned in posts they would be running double WD HT but can't because of the lag. It's also odd sometimes it takes 15-20 seconds after you sign in, load D3, and sit in menus. Before your friends/clan all populates. It wasn't always like that. Your friend list used to be instant once the game loads and you arrive in menus.
