Realms Laggy?

I'm noticing a lot of lag since 1.11 almost as bad as when I was dial up.

Anyone else having the same problem?
And it always seems to be when I'm boss mf which is damn annoying lol.

Same. I notice a lot of lag, but I'm not sure if it is just due to something they did in the patch. It usually happens when joining and creating games. And I also keep getting jammed with connection interrupted when I quest between Acts.

It's the realm problem , isn't it?
frds of mine in UsWest and myself feel that the UsWest server is quite smooth after the banning.

Maybe , most ppl of Uswest used MH , and there's the more ppl in UsWest being banned by Blizz than other realms. LOL

Odd cause I never noticed this in 1.10 even when every other person seemed to be using mh, thought might be my ISP but it seems a few people have noticed the same thing.

It might be because of the new season, with alot more players being on.

Yeah - experencing pretty bad lag spikes at times espeically over the weekend. This happened when 1.10 first started out too until they made a few measures that made it easier for creating/joining games.

Not sure if it just network traffic or just numbers on the server realm. My minions were lagging so bad they got oblierated before they knew what was happening. Not going to play HC until this is fixed :eek:

Its probably more this than anything else.
I even got lagged out of the forgotten sands and thus wasted a set of keys.

It was terrible. I started getting laggy in the game, must have been the 123751878643 little maggots that filled the screen too. Then I realised I was stuck, I had no choice but to wait for the inevitable. The game had not been up for 5 minutes so leaving was not an option.

CONNECTION INTERRUPTED

Keys wasted.

On the bright side it took me like 5 runs to get another 3 keys from nihlathak. When it took me like 50 runs to get the previous 3.

And... well I'm pretty sure it happened to a lot of people too.. lol... at least I never wasted keys by opening portals and then realising I couldn't beat the uber in it.

Not true. If you type /users on battle.net, you'll see it still stands at around 50,000~52,000 players at all times (USEast). This is the approximate number before reset as well. But yeah I have noticed that USWest is ALOT smoother then East lately.. very annoying. I do find that playing in the morning means less lag though.

Nith still hasn't dropped me a key yet found 3 or 4 each of the other 2 tho and my frost zealot smashed Lilith and Izzy up. When I get another destruction key he'll smash up the Uber 3 too.

I'm on US East. Tried playing at all different times to no avail. The lag is beyond insane and any exp I gain is quickly lost when I freeze :(
