If you are sure that your computer meets the system requirements of Guild Wars 2 and the game server you are playing on has currently no high latency issues (check the server status) but Guild Wars 2 still freezes, lags, has latency issues, login problems or you even disconnect, then you might want to troubleshoot your internet connection and system with the Latency Optimizer´s testing & cleaning tools:
Speed test, ping test, latency test, packet monitor, RAM optimizer, system cleaner, startup manager, disk cleaner and first aid kit.
Why Guild Wars 2 freezes, lags, gets high latency, has login problems and disconnects?
||- If your computer doesn't meet the system requirements of Guild Wars 2, graphics card driver, motherboard driver, audio card driver and network card driver are not regularly updated.|
||- If your CPU usage is high because of infections, third party software applications or misconfigured system internals.|
||- If your internet connection settings are misconfigured, the TCP/IP protocol is corrupted and/or there are malfunctioning processes related to your internet connection.|
||- Lack of periodically made system maintenance service.|
||- High ping on the game server because of internet gateway issues.|
||- New updates and patches causing temporary Guild Wars 2 lag or high latency.|
||- If your system memory is low or other causes of a slow performing system like missing or wrong registry settings, corrupted system processes, third party software applications using too much system resources.|
||- Your router or modem needs a firmware update or driver update. Some routers and modems require special settings for individual games.|
||- Guild Wars 2 game servers are under maintenance, getting high loads or are under attack.|
||- A weak signal or bad line provided by your Internet Service Provider.|
||- Technical issues on the ISP's side or oversold bandwidth.|
||- Other trivial reasons causing high latency in Guild Wars 2|

- Graphics Card
Troubleshooting graphics card issues is not that easy and can be very time intensive! The fastest way to troubleshoot a possible issue is to use the integrated graphics card test (included in most leading graphics cards software packages) or to temporarily plug another graphics card in the motherboard slot. Note that you should disable your onboard graphics card if you use a slot card.
- Audio Card
Issues with audio cards are in most of the cases not connected with sound issues. Well of course if you don't hear anything in the game, it's obvious that your audio card has issues. But there are many situations where a malfunctioning audio card causes problems but you still hear sound. The best way to troubleshoot this is to plug in another audio card for a test!
The well-known slow, stopping, lagging mouse cursor when you start a game or while playing is in most cases not caused by your mouse. It's caused rather by your CPU or graphics card! Mouse incompatibility is in these times, almost not an issue. And if your mouse doesn't work, just plug in a new one.
As Guild Wars 2 is an online game, a malfunctioning router or modem will cause a big headache!
