Played a lot of Blitz at beginning of year up until july...when I rested for a couple of months until about two weeks ago.   I find I am experiencing problems with lagg...150-250 ping which is utterly unplayable...

 

While it happens sometimes in regular play...I  find the Mad Games to be unplayable....lag about 70-80 percent of my matches is 125-250...which makes it a waste of time... sad...because I would have played it 14 hrs per day until I achieved all three tanks....

 

Don't know what happened...but I find the excesssive lag really hits when everybody starts doing the invisable speed spurt which creates terminal lag with normal to low end graphics computers like mine.  But since most of the non american countries have low end computers...WOT is probably missing market here if this kind of stuff continues into future special events,.

Check your ISP. I had the same problem when my ISP throttled my connection speed back without notice. I see you said your using a low end graphics card. I would check to make sure your graphics card meets the minimum game requirements because if it doesn't that also will cause lag problems

I remember getting a huge lag spike yesterday, i wasn't the only one. I saw my team mates going crazy at the same time as i was. I think it's server problems.

 

Edit: They also mentioned the lag spike.

If the whole team is complaining there could be some packet drop in a major internet router preceding WG. 

 

OP can you post a pingplotter analysis in this thread?  See link in sig.

Same computer before and after.   3 months ago...no lag whatsoever...now...blitz is a laggy mess...and the Mad Special is 70 -80 percent lagout messes at 175-250.   Like I said...its rushed through buggy buggy code for the Mad event....which bleeds a bit to certain times of day game play on regular....   My guess is the primary difference in the Mad Games is the invisible and speed perk buttons....just too much going through their limited bandwidth...which translates to impossible ping and packet loss rates often between 20-30 percent.  This makes playing this event impossible....and is the very first time I have had any difficulty with blitz during the past year.

 

It also means that the unpredictable poor performance of the blitz engine precludes yours truly from playing this game during peak periods...as the laggy mess is just not worth it.

Except that the "poor performance of the game engine" is actually a custom-built-from-the-ground-up bit of code called DAVA that exceeds the performance of the Unity engine and a number of others.

 

Except that 5.4 has provided better performance for most players (including me) who did complain of latency and packet loss in 5.2 and 5.3

 

Without a Pingplotter test your rant won't help anyone, including yourself.  Here's my test from right now: and there's higher than normal latency, but it's not at WG.  It's at Comcast, a major internet provider in the US between most of us and WG's server.  There's also a bit of latency at Shaw Communications, my ISP.  WG can handle far more players than we currently on the server at peak times.

 

The reasons for your problem are myriad: you may have got a new graphics driver.  nVidia Geforce Experience put a new one on my laptop a few weeks ago and Blitz (and WoT) ran way worse.  Had to roll the graphics driver back to a previous version.

You can still run Blitz on really old iPads and laptops - just need to turn down the graphics settings.
