    Well most people know that i have have had an awful experience with this game and having got a gaming router form Virgin, i was a little excited but to no avail what the feck have Respawn done to this game, it seems slower, still boring even with the frontier defence thing, the enemies taking the route every time, why on earth have they nerfed the only gun (G2A5) i can use in this game due to terrible lag issues, but still have a Titan with an automatic aim so just by aiming into the sky you can kill any pilot from the other side of the map, well having set up the new router yesterday played a few games of CoD and to my surprised played very well indeed so this morning thought i would see if TF2 was going to be the same, what a complete let down, i am absolutely flummoxed about what to do i am still getting mid air pausing, well the same crap i was getting before.
    I will try this game again but not for a few weeks o may be months.
    Cheers.

    Hey unclefrank, so sorry your new router didn't solve anything for you. I hope someday you are able to find a good solution.

    Just like the E-Man said I'm also bummed for you. Is it just Titanfall 2?

    Came back from a hospital once a couple years ago got situated in my chair and couldn't connect to any servers anywhere. Come to find out the wife had switched to satellite service. Talk about bummed.

    I'm surprised bypassing the router completely hasn't worked. That is what worked for me. To bad we will never get an answer on why this game suffers from terrible lag for some people.

    I really really think the lag is due to a three pronged killer.
    1. Low player count. Better now but still think players in an "unpopulated" area are affected. Meaning you need to play on servers further away

    2. Players choosing higher ping data centers. Probably due to low player count in their area

    3. The last is completely over my head technically but I believe the choice in servers respawn uses could affect the gameplay.

    ultimately I believe the speed of the game intensifies the issue which sucks

    Was Tf1 the same way ? Did it have these kind of lag issues ? I always had a feeling it was because of low player count. But now I play without the router connected and i really don't get lag at all. So I don't know what the hell is going on with this game.

    I think that is a very good assessment getmused.

    Once in awhile it was noticeable in TF1 Omega, but to be honest I never really thought about it too much until I heard people complaining about the lag in TF2. Looking back on it, there must have always been somewhat of an issue, because I know there were maybe a handful of times (no more than 5), where I had no lag and it was absolutely beautiful. It was like my speed was so fast I could barely control myself, but it was awesome! So since it was rarely like that, then that tells me that there must have always been something holding it back.

    However, I have noticed that it has gotten exponentially worse in the last few months as the TF1 player count has continued to drop drastically. It is because of that which makes me think getmused is really onto something with his #1 and #2. I think he is also onto something with his #3, because I think TF2 is much worse, because rather than just using Microsoft Azure (which they used exclusively for TF1), they chose to use a whole mixed bag of all kinds of different cloud servers and physical servers and I think it has really created a laggy mess. Since TF1 has gotten worse since TF2 has come out, it also makes me wonder if they have included TF1 in part of this laggy mess, which makes it worse too.

    I've noticed since the update the matchmaking is making much better use of my Mixtape (when it used to place me almost exclusively into Attrition matches) but at the cost of higher ping times. When I get a match of Bounty Hunt or Amped Hardpoint my ping is averaging 100-115ms sometimes spiking to 135ms. When it puts me into Attrition matches it will usually be 55ms and sometimes spike to 80ms. I am on Xbone on the NY server. Is this because it switches me to a different server in order to get me a game of Bounty Hunt more quickly? When my son and I play EA's NHL 18 Beta on two separate Xboxes sharing the household connection both of them ping in the 20ms range.

    Man, I really really hate posting this but I've played 25-30 mp games and it's running like crap. Or to be specific I have this very slight micro stutter that is almost constant. You don't see it as much as feel it. Like chaining jumps together or fighting a pilot that's not directly in front of me. It's like the controller is stuck in mud. I'll be following the pilot but....It's. Like. I'm. Can't. Move. My. Crosshairs. Just. Enough. To. Shoot. On. Target.

    I used periods to hopefully express what's going on. I didn't have this problem 1-3 weeks ago. Hell the game was running pretty good besides the occasional "laggy" match. I really don't know how to explain what I'm experiencing. It's like something else is controlling my pilot. It's like the game won't let me line up on the target. Like I'm fighting my controls. And when jumping I'm constantly just short of what ever I'm jumping too. So I end up having to climb.

    I don't have any of these issues in FD.

    I just don't know. It's such a huge bummer. But at least I get to play FD

    I don't have any issues as I'm gluten intolerant.

    unclefrank, how long have you owned tf2? And how long has it been lagging ?

    What does your ping show in game ? And you definitely tried playing the game without using the router? Without the router there was no difference at all ?

    I think the word you were looking for is actually Glutton. Your phone is part of the problem...and thank you, pointless replies are my specialty.

    hello uncle Frank
    question are you playing on console or pc ? and is the lag every other game or each game you play.
    does it happen with other game the lag or only tf .

    i recommend looking at the ping if you have not done so already change region . i get the lag also time to time but i mostly see it on other players in the game the stuttering .

    also do a speed test on your pc and or system see what your upload speed is see if your numbers are consistent or close readings if the numbers are off in big gaps it could be your ISP .

    I use powerline adapters so I'm not using the router per se. Online gaming only requires a solid ping so if thats in place your and up and down really doesn't play into it unless it is tragic. I would suggest that you rule out any local issues with your network. I would also contact your isp and request a low latency profile. This will ensure that your ping is solid and fast. I would then tweet @jonshiring. He is the principle network guy at respawn. He is a great guy and is always ready to help out with issues. Lag can be any number of issues and is largely dynamic so it's not always easy to pin it down. However I hope that you do and I am sorry that you are not enjoying the game.

    he can also try the game at a different location and see if the same problem is there.
    at a friend's or family house if one has the time. but it could be the ISP.

    So I've posted here and in the EA forums, mostly the latter. Either way I have also had to deal with really frustrating and bizarre lag (just bunching everything into the "lag" category). The strange thing is even though it seems really inconsistent from day to week to week, I really don't think it is and I'm starting to see a pattern.

    My issues started right before angel city so just like frank a cpl months after the release. I saw the same pattern for each update which was a cpl days before launch lag then a cpl weeks after update lag. Then for a cpl weeks the game played great. Now I would get some games that played great during my weeks of lag I just had way more laggy games than normal. The only time this pattern was different was do to the extreme lag I had for colony which I had to stop playing he game all together for two months. The game was unplayable.

    So I came to the conclusion that there were probably three issues: 1. Low player 2. Other players choosing high data centers 3. Being stuck on a really far data center when I play.

    The low player count can be nixed bc I see some really decent numbers. Players choosing higher centers is possible and getting stuck on some far server is still something I believe could happen. But I will also say it could be my connection. But why would I have weeks of great connection and no issues with other games if it were my connection. And right now the latency is horrible. I'm being killed a good 2 secs after running behind a wall, dropping through a hole or any other escape situation. It's just really frustrating. You see how bad it is in the kill cam. I didn't always see this. Idk, I'm like frank666 and venting. I love the game and take pride in the fact that at one time I had a 3k/d with 81% w/l. And they have been destroyed by lag (and the day in half or close to 50 games of FD). I used to score regularly over 200. Now I can barely scratch 100 in attrition. Just a bummer

    First, I really want to thank you getmused for sharing your experiences, because it at least doesn't leave unclefrank feel like he is left out in the cold all by himself.

    Even though that may not be a factor now, I still believe it factors in getmused, because I think the severe dropoff in TF1 has affected the lag very badly there.

    Wow!!! That is a HUGE difference. No wonder you get frustrated.
