Our statistics show that the high latency issues in Diablo 3 increased by around 2.7 % and the actual data is that 9.7% of all Diablo players do lag. These numbers are based on user information gathered through Latency Optimizer, polls, surveys and incoming search terms to our websites. If you experience Diablo 3 lag you must first understand that 91.3% of all Diablo 3 players do not lag; do not have high latency issues.
If you lag in Diablo 3 than something causes high latency.
The high latency can be caused by hardware (slow or corrupted processor, RAM, graphics card communications with the game) or most likely from the internet connection as data packages are not delivered and received as they should. We do not have sufficient data about hardware issues causing Diablo 3 lag but as we know that Blizzard always puts much effort in hardware compatibility.
We assume that high latency in Diablo 3 is caused by hardware issues not higher than 2%. It is also very unlikely that someone would buy a game and ignore system requirements so that lag could be caused.
That can be a slow internet connection, unstable internet connection, low quality internet connection, or a wrongly configured internet connection, besides other common internet connection issues.
a.) Virus, spyware, Trojan, adware, root-kit, or other malware infections.
b.) Corrupted internet connection settings, wrong registry settings, unwanted or malfunctioning systems or third party application processes.
c.) A generally slowly performing system caused by various reasons.
d.) Lack of periodically made system maintenance.
e.) Communication and data transfer issues with the router/modem.
f.) Other system and internet connection malfunctions.
Here is an example that may make it more understandable how some servers handle it (this example does not apply to Diablo III only! It can be applied to almost all game servers):
If you play table tennis with your friend who is a professional player and you permanently fail to return the ball or you are playing too slowly, then there will be a big chance that your friend stops playing with you! The same principle applies to the Diablo III's game server as does 90% of all other game servers.
- too complex calculations;
- big amounts of calculations;
- requests to send and receive data packages that are too big;
- algorithms and interfaces that are not optimized can cause high latency;
- many other reasons…
If your computer doesn't meet the system requirements, some hardware has malfunctioned, low quality network cards or wireless adapters or outdated drivers.
