Nope, not talking about a companion to Nethergarde Bitter or some other Dwarven beverage.
I'm talking about lag and latency.
Tuesday night was the first time I've ever experienced anything other than near perfect connectivity.
I don't have frame rate numbers to post, but the little colored indicator on the default Blizz UI was turning red and yellow, when its never been anything besides solid green for me.
Pretty annoying. In Blood Furnace, as a pull would evolve, I had a really tough time switching targets as we burned them down in order. Just some really strange effects.
Then I start reading blogs wednesday morning. Seems that lots of people are writing about lag tuesday night.
What's the deal? Is the 2.3 patch download or preparation causing extra load on the servers or something?
By the end of the night it seemed to clear up, but that was pretty annoying. In PvE, it was bearable, but if that were happening in BG, it would pretty much ruin the experience.
