for the last couple of days, ive been experiencing this issue where my input latency has reached ridiculously unplayable numbers, spiking anywhere from 200-5000.
This is no issue with my internet or any hardware on my end, i have tested my internet speeds and ping connection with other games, everything is normal. i have changed nothing about my pc or the game, and have had no issues since release. suddenly, the input latency has made the game become extremely laggy and is completely unplayable.
if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix, that would be much appreciated since i have literally tried everything.
So many threads on this and no real support. The generic help copy/pastes do nothing, meanwhile people have been dealing with this since launch with no acknowledgement from the dev team that this is even an issue on their radar.
Myself and most people in that thread have tried everything from graphics settings, network adapter drivers, replacement peripherals, firewall settings, port forwards, sus Russian networking software, the list goes on. I’ve personally had the cable guy come out three times to check my Internet. I’ve already filled out a customer support ticket and submitted my logs, was told to wait 1-2 days and that was over a month ago with no response.
The issue seems tied to your game account and ags servers.
Next time it happens, take note of the region server pings on the character select screen. When mine are all red I know I’m gonna have a bad night. I can load up 8k youtube videos with no buffering, download large files, run speed tests at the same time this issue is occuring and see no degraded internet quality on my end. One time I closed new world, resubbed to xiv and ran a dungeon (with no lag) just to make sure my internet was fine.
At my wit’s end on this one. There is clearly some bug on our accounts clogging up the pipes and so far trying to get any real support has been futile.
