I'll start by letting you know that I normally play in 2 different networks: my home and my work. Since I started playing, the game has been easy to play on my Nvidia Shield tab, running between 55 and 60 fps and the ping was normally 100. Is high but game was playable.

After the recent updates and after 6 months playing, the ping has gotten ridiculous. At 290 average and sometimes reaching 400, the game becomes unplayable 'cause I start missing shots, tank turns more than need it, suddenly I hit a rock or I simply get spoted and by the time the lightbulb comes up, a second after I am already dead...

Is it just me or is someone else having this issue?

Just FYI, ping/lag has nothing to do with the lightbulb.  The lightbulb flashes 3 seconds after you've been spotted.  In other words, by the time you see the lightbulb, they've already been looking at you for 3 seconds.  It's not unusual to get shot even before you see the bulb.  That's just how the game works, it's not lag.


"When the going gets tough and the stomach acids flow, 
The cold wind of conformity is nipping at your nose.
When some trendy new atrocity has brought you to your knees
Come with us we'll sail the Seas of Cheese."

Right, I knew that part. What I was trying to says is that  because of the ping, It jumps in time 1 seconds or two and by the time light bulb comes up I'm already dead...
