Many LOL players were hoping that lag issues in PVP would be solved. Unfortunately, the high latency issues in League of Legends, especially in PVP, are mainly caused by the lack of stable and quality lines and signals provided by the player's ISP and as same many lag issues are caused from the player's PC or laptop. The League of Legends game servers are working up to 99% (besides maintenance work and temporary high loads).

Why are there latency, lag and ping issues in League of Legends?
Back to the general LOL lag issues. As same as with almost ALL Online Games and also with League of Legends, the user's end is most important!
To give an example on how most of the game servers are working:
Imagine you are an amateur tennis player playing with your friend who is a professional player. After you fail to return or catch the ball over some period of time it is most likely that your friend will stop playing with you. The same applies for data packages sent from your computer to the game server and back.
If your internet connection settings are misconfigured, TCP/IP protocol is corrupted, registry settings are wrong or missing, third party applications interfering with your internet connection without your knowledge, lack of periodically conducted system services, infections and tons of other reasons can cause high latency (lag) in League of Legends. You can troubleshoot and fix many of these issues with LATENCY OPTIMIZER 4.0 (here)
