Random Lag, I need some help.
I've had to deal with this random lag, kinda like a 'burning' type lag, where the FPS will be really low, and only when I look in certain directions, it's started to annoy me, and I know, it's not supposed to be that way, my computer is built well enough not to, if someone could help, thanks.

You may have gotten a virus or a trojan or something.
Either that or your internet is just slow.

Ran scans, and what does lag have to do with my internet speed?

Slow internet can run down your connection speed to the server.

I meant FPS lag, not server lag.

Don't call low fps lag.

Its just low fps. Lag is mostly used to describe network issues.

Looking in directions where your system has more distance/complexity to draw can lower your framerate noticably if your system isn't quite up to it.

The only thing real "lag" is about is your connection to the internet and the length of the round trip for packets and confirmation of your actions. When you shoot a rocket, it doesn't actually appear in the shared game simulation until the server approves for instance, that takes time. They do things to try to hide this .. http://www.gdcvault.com/play/1014345/I-Shot-You-First-Networking watch that for a little window into it...
