Major Lag
Ever since that update, the Official and Dedicated servers have been really laggy. Is this happening to anyone else?

Where are you located and what is the ip of the server you care connecting to? We have added some new servers and new data centers, so I want to make sure we aren't doing some bad routing.

You can get the IP address by typing status in the console (~) - just post here what it outputs.

thanks

I've been trying to get a decent game in for the last 2 days, 4 out of 5 servers I join are like watching an animated movie by the cell slides. what's happening?

I've had the same problem. Watching a tank come at me frame-by-frame and knowing that I can't run because half of my inputs don't register isn't my idea of having fun. Wish they hadn't replaced all the good servers with these terribad pinion servers.

I'm noticing horrendous lag in every single game I've tried to join since the update (which I'd say has been about seven). Everyone has ping around 200 or so, with it sometimes reaching ridiculous amounts of 700 or more. I don't have super great internet but I usually hover at or below 70, and I don't normally notice any lag. This recent update has apparently changed something though, because this lag is terrible - I LOVE the new Workshop implementation but hopefully these server issues will be fixed soon.

Guys!

I have been playing all night on servers that have been fine. So again....

If you are on the pc, you gotta give us some info.

Where are you located and what is the ip of the server you care connecting to? We have added some new servers and new data centers, so I want to make sure we aren't doing some bad routing.

You can get the IP address by typing status in the console (~) - just post here what it outputs.

You can get your location by going outside and seeing what city you live in...

thanks

Well... I haven't been lagging too bad anymore. I get these random non-internet related lag spikes, but that's probably because my intel laptop overheats occasionally.

Well, the one time I was able too since the patch, it was extremely laggy. Laggier then usual.

Please do not post the user section - please post the servers your are on - the ip address. thanks

This section:

Hey that's the info I was about to post. That server started lagging badly in the crescendo event of the 2nd chapter of The Passing. Did not end well.

Edit: If you happen to look at this discussion again. Here's another one. This server was skipping horribly.
