    Angry Lag Spikes

    I started playing Smite on PC about a month ago. Ever since then I have been getting really bad lag spikes randomly through out my experience. I tried messing with the settings and no luck. This is the only game that I have this problem with. Any suggestions? Is it Smite servers doing this?! It is getting worse and it is causing me to die.

    They've always been in Smite, but do agree they do seem to be increasing in regularity / intensity recently, (i.e. last few months or so). What's weird is that on my local region, (NA) I'll be having a fairly stable 50-75 ping and then, without those ping numbers going up at all, I'll start jumping around the screen, (unfortunately often then finding myself alone in the middle of the enemy team... :/ ).

    I also used to play a lot on EU, but the ping and lag there have definitely gotten worse, (i.e. not unusual to get pings > 200-300ms, with plenty of lag spikes vs I used to get something like 90-110ms or before) to the point where I really won't play there at all anymore.

    Anything that can be done to help would definitely be most appreciated by all of us, I'm sure.

    I believe Smite works on the Partial Server system.

    What this roughly means is that there is a server (or servers) the host the primary game, but once you are in a match you aren't really relying on the server, you are relying on a Peer to Peer connection.

    This means that while you may have good ping, you can still experience lag, since there is a game host.

    If it works in your favor, don't question it.
