Thank you everyone for the views and responds. The more Riot sees the problem the more likely it is to get fixed. Bumb/respond with real details like computer specs to make this thread helpful. Not just a massive Complaint!
I, as well as many other people reported hard lag spikes and latency higher than normal since Even before the Mid July Patch. Tired of dragging a team down in PvP so I am stuck with bots hoping you guys will fix the problem. It is not my computer or internet. I play every other computer game just fine on high settings and never lag.
I really would like to get as many bump/comments together on 1 post rather than 400 posts a day of the same stuff for different people. Please bump this thread if its happening to you and post your problems. Post as much as you can about your computers specs. Some people are not encountering this problem the more we compare maybe we can understand what might be the issue. Before Riot makes 2 more characters while a decent amout of customers/players are having connection issues not stemming from their own ISP.
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6950 (Drivers Installed)
Internet Speed: Roadrunner Lightning (40MB/sec)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz
Operating System: Windows Vista 64x Bit
Connection: Wireless 40MB (Wireless Router accepts all 40MB too)
I am running a Wireless Connection. I have lag spikes with my laptop as well. I am currently going to try and run a wireless, then wired connection on the Laptop to see whether or not lag spikes continue.
EDIT: Laptop had no lag spike. LOL I dont know what to do with these random unexplainable lag spikes.
Network Analysis: DNS Test says "Your ISP's DNS resolver follows CNAMEs regardless of their location, but only after having learned that this nameserver is valid for the other domain. This is very unusual"
Update: 7/26/12 12:39PM - Reinstalled LoL: Custom Bot Match, Lag Spikes persists.
Update: 7/26/12 12:40PM - Running a Network Analysis to see if there is any porblems with my network. Yellow/Red problem are reported above.
Update: 7/26/12 1:00PM - Latency is Higher than usual. 78 is stardard I have been dealing with ~130 all day.
Update: 7/26/12 1:13PM - Got 2 screen shots of the differences between pings BELOW. Notice how there is no FPS Issue but ping jumps.
Update: 7/26/12 2:16PM - Lowered graphic quality to see if that was the issue. Very High (60FPS) to Medium (60FPS) on everything. Still get Spikes.
Update: 7/30/12 10:30AM - Lag Spike Back and hard. Saw it in the loading screen.
Update: 8/1/12 12:08PM - After "Early August Patch" There were no lag spikes. In Either a Bot Match or PvP Match. Morde in PvP was spiking (he said).
Update: 8/1/12 1:08PM - PvP match may have not been a success but there was no lag spikes for me. Though there was a Morde on my team still having issues.
Update: 8/2/12 1:08PM - Lag Spikes started back up. Saw Latency Jump during loading screen. From 78 to 356 then slowly drops to 78 again.
Update: 8/3/12 2:14PM - Post in BOLD above about Wireless Connection Test to see if Wireless was the Issue. Please Read it.
Update: 8/4/12 10:06PM - Muting sound via in game client to see if problem is Sound Based. Nope... I went a whole match deaf to pings (we won) but still lag spiked 3-4 times.
Update: 8/7/12 10:06PM - Took a Ping Test to look at Packets Lost and standard Latency for local servers. Screenshot below. Jitter is fluctuation between latencies.
