Its not been just today, this has been going on since at least the last patch, and from some people Ive talked to even longer. It seems to be random intermittent lag spikes, I had them for about 3 hours on Tuesday. I thought at first it may of been my ISP so I tabbed out and ran a speed test and was DLing at 30 meg, so it wasn't that. And before someone else decides to argue with me that I just have a **** PC, while its not top of the line I run on very high settings with about 55ms normal on my latency. What we have been experiencing is like I said an intermittent server side lag spikes that takes you well into the 10's of thousands ms latency. It made trying to run HM'S virtually impossible.

These sorts of issues plague all MMOs it is the nature of the internet sometimes.

A lot of things can happen on the internet to cause ping spikes, yes servers is one possibility but it is not the majority cause of most cases.

They need the tracert's and pathpings to fix what they can fix, and as happened in the past approached ISPs and Backbone providers to seek a solution.

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.

Some have mentioned issues that appear to point to Alter.net routers and the datacenter itself where some servers are located for example.

Finding the actual cause is not simple in most cases.

Edit - If you are on wireless (bane of lag spikes) , try connecting to your router directly to eliminate this as a cause.

I can't answer for others but my computer is hard lined into the router. And it started at like 1 in the afternoon for me on Tuesday so it wasn't exactly a peak time either. Hell the only reason I was even home was because I was on two days off from work cause I busted up my knee on Monday at work. Which really sucked because I couldn't my HM dailys knocked out.
