How to fix Assassin's 3 lag? - Troubleshoot lag & latency problems!

Anvil Next spent three years building a new system for Assassin's Creed III and it looks promising! Assassin's III offers new motion-capture, animation and AI technology, to allow more realistic character animations and interactions besides expanding the combat and stealth system. The prize for all the new achievements is that the PC version does not support Windows XP!
We expect lag and high latency issues in the multiplayer modes for slower or laggy internet connections as the performance of sent and received data packages might suffer from the new expanded combat and stealth system plus the relatively high minimum system requirements for the PC version. In this article we will not troubleshoot or give suggestions for fixing console lag (like PS3 lag or XBOX lag)! This article is dedicated to the PC version only!!!
How to fix Assassin's Creed 3 lag and latency issues?
1. Why does Assassins III lag for some of its players?
Ad 1. Assassins Creed 3 Multiplayer lagging on PS3 and XBOX:
In some rare cases, connecting your XBOX or PS3 over PC to the Internet could archive better performance after the right optimizations are done! Yet, this is the only and just an experimental suggestion to fix Assassins III Creed multiplayer lag caused by your internet connection. Visit this post to get info on XBOX LAG!
Starting with not meeting or playing only on the minimum system requirements, corrupted hardware parts (like graphics card, audio card, processor, RAM, mouse and so on...), improperly plugged-in wires, weak signals, slow performing system, wrong registry setting, infections, bad processes, and wrongly configured internet connection settings could all cause Assassins III Creed lag on your computer.
If your internet connection doesn't meet the minimum requirements of a 256 kbs or faster broadband connection, Assassins III will probably lag in the multilayer mode. If your Internet Service Provider oversold the bandwidth, provides you with a weak signal or bad line or there is maintenance work ongoing, you might lag as well.
THE GAME SERVER:
By every internet connection based multiplayer game, the servers or the P2P console can cause lag. The reasons could be maintenance work, coding errors, high load, attacks and much more â€¦ As we know of the high quality equipment used for Assassins III, we can safely say there won't be many issues!
Minimum System Requirements for Assassins III Creed - Windows Vista (SP2) / Windows 7 (SP1) / Windows 8 - 2.66 GHz Intel Core2 Duo E6700 or 3.00 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ - RAM: 2 GB (4 GB recommended) - Video Card: 512 MB DirectX 9.0c-compliant (Shader Model 4.0 ) - Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c-compliant - DVD-ROM: Dual-layer drive - Hard Drive Space: 17 GB - 256 kbps or faster broadband connection You can troubleshoot and fix many issues with LATENCY OPTIMIZER (here)
FIX GAME SERVER ISSUES
There is nothing much you can do against game server or P2P lag. Such lag is mainly temporary and waiting till the problem is resolved is the best bet! Posting in the official support forum can at least point out the problem to the developers!
FIX ISP ISSUES
In any case where an internet connection causes lag, we suggest that you do a speed test and a ping test everyday over a period of 3 days to collect data and analyze and compare them afterwards. If you experience a general drop of your internet connection speed or a high ping you should contact your Internet Service Provider! Only in rare cases per example * adjusting package size could help you out even with a laggy internet connection.
Latency Optimizer offers 45 fine-tunings that can be applied to an internet connection to possibly archive better results.
