It was a problem on PTS but much worse, now it's not as common but it IS there. Many times have I used something for the animation to start but the ability doesn't go and I get locked out of a GCD.
I don't even know how to bug report this or get them to even acknowledge it's a problem.
Certainly others are having the same issue?

yup, biggest thing I notice it with because of its proc rate is furious power, I hit it, it gets a light blue "you pressed me" then nothing happens. I've always attributed it to server ping. because this same light blue effect happens when you lose server connection.

It’s worse since the last patch. Mist of my abilities are grayed out and if I didn’t know what should be up or the rotation, I would be in big trouble and probably not be able to play.
To make it worse, there is a very noticeable activation delay, sometimes up to 2 secs.

Yep, like others said, got worse with last patch. With that and lag.......so hard to not get tilted.

I sit around 40ms at all times, I do know Chain lightning does cause some desync issues, but also some ability issues too. You can try it yourself obviously, but trying to activate something nearly at same time you get hit by one of them half the time it does not activate. Even happens with bubble, something really needs to be done about the desync/slow on chain lightning, I think the damage is fine tho.

A lot of that can also be cause from packet loss. Even with 40ms, a small amount of packet loss will make it seem like you have activation lag or actual lag. I’m not saying that’s what’s happening, just offering something that can compound the problem more,

I agree. This is very irritating as Inf. Shadow especially when you teleport, procced force breach, then hit force potency a hair too quick and it counts it as if you already used force breach, giving you the full cooldown but no proc.

Also, has anyone noticed on sentinel that the abilities are not lighting up correctly, even if you have force and are within range?

All in all, it feels like someone abilities aren't registering correctly or something.
