Crazy lag (latency) when playing with a friend
So me and my friend recently bought this game, but we can't seem to be able to join a game together. When either of us hosts, the host can play just fine but the person joining the game gets crazy lag and gets teleported back and forth due to some sort of latency issues. What's causing this, and how can we solve it? So far it's proving impossible for us to play together, since we can't join a game without one of us lagging like hell. Our connection speeds aren't the issue, since we both have 60/60 connections, and we never have these kind of lag issues with other games.

So does nobody else have this problems? Because this is making it unplayable for us...

same here its probable to the large increase of players from the sale and humble bundle

I thought this game was peer-to-peer, so a large increase in players shouldn't make a difference? I could be wrong though.

We got this problem too.

Its because your home network is not fast enough to host, hosting requires a decent network connection, and host NEVER lags in his network considering its on his computer where the server is. It is peer-to-peer.

I said so in the first post, and I'm saying it again, we have MORE than fast enough internet connections to be hosting this game. I realize that the host isn't going to lag, but it makes absolutely no sense (connection-wise) that neither of us can host without the other person lagging.

I seem to have the same problem. I keep teleporting forth and back when I play on my bro's hosted game. I just can't figure out what makes this ...

I have the same problem too. My connection is not the greatest but I can play a myriad of other online games without problems.
Yesterday I played fine for 2 hours without problems, today I can't even connect to my friends games.
I renamed the clientregistry.blob file, i added -tcp in the launch options, nothing helps.

Same here... At first, me and my friend didn't have any problem, but now we can't play with eachother. The one that is not hosting has massive lag

My friend has never had this problem and he has insanely powerful internet, and hes on the other side of the planet from me.

ranked has to go through trendy servers

^ That.

It's a shame this game has the problems it has, because it would be even more epic if it didn't have such problems. :\
