Different kind of laggs: fps and "pvp delay"

Just to make things clear, because i see people confusing those two in other posts.

Some people, the majority, get fps drops in certain areas of the game especially in warzones.
Most of these people are able to bypass the problem by turning shadows off and play around with their settings, but not all. For some even this doesnt seem to work.

The OTHER different kind of lagg is, that some get a major delay on all their skills in warzones + every other player is jumping around lagging like hell. It feels like u got a connection problem, like playing with 600 latenzy or something even though it shows, in my case 30 ms.

It is possible to experience BOTH at the same time, i myself did but managed to get my fps back to normal by the solution mentioned earlier.

I read through topics in which both problems are confused. To me this appears to be hindering solving even one of them or at least it hinders bioware to notice both of them equal. I hope this doesnt get moved cause i want people to acknowledge that there's a difference. Sorry if i made spelling mistakes im german.

I think it's just a delay in general I'm having. My latency and fps are fine throughout the game but in PvP I experience odd delays where it takes a few seconds for some abilities to activate. I can run and keep shooting with no delay but as a smuggler trying to get in my crouch can be a pain and unfortunately that's where many of my abilities are.
