Like I said for me though, at first I thought it was my ISP, which is why I tabbed out to run some tests and my ISP had me chugging along at 30 meg DL speeds at the very same time I was getting ultra high pings from the game. Which leads me to believe the issue was server side. I also checked temps on my video card and was not running particularly hot. Also worked fine before that and works just fine now so I don't have reason to believe it was client side either. My speculation is still that it was server side. Especially since it seems to be affecting people so randomly. I say that because some of the people I had talked to about it there didn't seem to be any rural.common factor with the PCs besides playing TOR.
