    Lag/Stuttering While playing

    Hello, Ive been playing Smite since the release on PS4 and i find that most games I have a slight lag/stuttering where i will be walking/kiting/retreating with a god and he stutters or sometimes even completely stops moving for a second. It is absolutely annoying when chasing or running from a god. I have tried to play around this by playing more ranged mage type gods as the lag does not impact them as much as lets say assassins. I do not know if this is lag because when I go to my friends house and play Smite on his ps4 and he has some lag instead of stuttering he and other gods sometimes ghost around the screen. I have no other issues with any games on PSN or on my PC. My internet connection is superb. I have Tekksavvy in Toronto, with 150 MBPS down and 10 MBPS up. Can anyone help me or tell me what my issue is? I have seen fixes for PC but i play on PS4.

    I have downloaded Smite on my PC and im in the process of playing some trial games to see if i suffer from the same lag on PC as i do on PS4.

    here is my ping and speedtest on PC.
    http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/5285254101



    Connections on my PC and PS4 are both wired, not wireless.
    On my PS4 on internet connection test it comes up at 80MBPS DOWN and 9 MBPS UP.

    Edit: I played 2 games online coop practice on my PC and my ping sat at 40-50 all game and my MS was 6-20 all game. No lag on those matches.

    The best advice i can give you is open your Router's Log file and look up the time where you played your last game and ping that server.
    Your internet connection might be fantastic but what matters most is the connection to the actual game server.

    As you are from Toronto wich is close enough to NewYork to warrant a decent server spot so you "should" have a connection nearby though (i'm dutch so i wouldnt know tbh)

    Heres a short 4 minute video of me playing. right at the start of my video you see me attempting to move forward and my God keeps stuttering ( I am almost always holding forward or backward on my joystick), interestingly enough when i am lagging/stuttering no other gods around me ever seem to be lagging.

    Another longer video during the beginning of the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qixdR_SQl3c

    hmmmmm, from the looks of it, its seems like it may be some sort of input lag, maybe. Only reason I say that is because in the first 15 secs of your video, when you are kinda lag skipping, the minions seem to be moving just fine, and as you said, when you lag sometimes it seems like everyone else isnt. That makes me think it be some sort of input or display lag. But Im also no expert, Im just a person who hates lag of any kind, and always try to eliminate it. Hope you find a solution.

    The game servers are shit, always have been and always will be since Hi-Rez are greedy and there are tons of idiots who blindly throw their money at them and will defend the shit out of them all the time.

    Lol that's a bit harsh I think the servers have been solid. There are certain moments where the game crashes for sure. Had it happen a few times after the patch but nothing I couldn't load right up and hop back in. Overall I've been pleased with the servers.

    You guys have no idea how annoying it is to play like this, seems to be getting worse. Cant chase enemy gods, can't run away or dodge. I regret buying the founders pack so much because of this horrible lag, wish I could sell it to be honest.

    Another horrible delay fest playing as hel.

    That's pretty odd. I know I have had similar issues on Xbox but a hard reboot resolves it most of the time.
    I actually think it is lag for you - look at the 2:36 mark. That Mercury is either LOL bad (which is possible) or you were nowhere near where he thought you were.
    Aside from that, it might actually be input lag. Do you have a different controller, preferably a wired one?

    Also, your speed test is not relevant. It is to a local server with no hops, and Hi-Rez servers are located in Atlanta GA. Try sending a ping to there...

    If a hard drive reboot fixed that for you maybe I'll try that... Dunno why that would be the issue when this ps4 is only 6 months old and there isn't much on the hard drive and it's very well taken care of. I would play on pc but I already bought the founders pack... I use the controller that came with the ps4 and I want to ping their server but I don't know the ip I've tried to find it. Didn't seem like I had this delay or lag when I started playing it at ps4 launch or I definitely wouldn't have paid for the founders pack Lol it's really odd and frustrating. Why can't I get an answer from hirez
