The Diablo® Series surely counts as one of the most successful RPG games with players and fans all around the globe. With Diablo III, Blizzard developed a game that had the potential to break all records! After the worldwide success of World of Warcraft we surely can expect that Diablo III uses advanced gaming technologies and provides first class gameplay. As with every new release, if you experience technical issues when you try to login to Diablo 3, get high latency in Diablo 3 or experience Diablo 3 lag you are first advised to be patient! Millions of gamers literally attack the game servers and issues just happen.
On the other hand, if you experience permanent Diablo III lag, you might want to troubleshoot your internet connection. Diablo III lag will be mostly caused by your ISP or on YOUR END (computer)!
Is Diablo III lag caused at the game server, your ISP or at YOUR END?
Diablo® III is designed to be the definitive action role-playing game, and a true continuation of the Diablo series. Players will create a male or female character from one of five distinct classes -- barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter -- each equipped with an array of spells and abilities.
As these characters adventure through rich and varied settings, unraveling an epic storyline and engaging in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, they'll grow in experience and ability and acquire items of incredible power.
* So far so good! Blizzard stated that latency does matter less in Diablo® III then it does in World of Warcraft. Yet we can say there are not that many players reporting Diablo lag as first expected. Blizzard must have learned his lesson and must have put much effort in the game server technology, algorithms and game mechanics.
Our Latency Optimizer 4.0 statistics, surveys and polls shows that around 7% of Diablo 3 players lag. It must be said that it might be too early to come up with some real statistics and of course the first days of Diablo III are quite heavy on the game servers and the game itself.
On the other hand, like with every game that requires an active internet connection, high latency or lag is mainly caused on the ISP's or on YOUR END (PC). In order to successfully fight Diablo 3 lag caused on the gamer's end we suggest that you download Speedtest4free to monitor and troubleshoot your internet connection speed and ping.
In combination with Latency Optimizer 4.0 (download), that provides 45 tweaks & tunes to speed up and boost your internet connection speed and optimizes latency, you will have 2 very handy and powerful applications to fight Diablo 3 lag.

Why do I disconnect from Diablo III?
The most common reasons why you might get disconnected in Diablo 3 are:
1. High latency - lag caused at gamers end (computer)
2. Your internet connection got disconnected
3. The game server disconnects you
4. Weak line or signal (ISP based)
You can troubleshoot and fix many of these issues with LATENCY OPTIMIZER (here)
• Here is an example of how to make it better 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.
Diablo 3 lag (high latency) caused by your PC
• High Latency (lag) caused by user PC (your end) is mainly permanent. There are tons and tons of reasons that could be responsible to cause the high latency (or lag).
Some of them are viruses, spyware, Trojans and root-kits, manipulated registry and internet connection settings, suspicious or unnecessary system process, hard disk full with junk files and other reasons that will let your PC and internet connection perform slower. Sometimes it's just because your internet connection isn't that fast or your hardware is near the system requirements of a game. The list could be very long.
