    My normal ping to LS & the other East Coast Shards is 40 at maximum, though it's almost always no greater than 35. Some others I've talked to on ICQ that play on LS are having the same problem. I tried to pvp earlier, and between the lag, rubberbanding, and drastically reduced casting speed, it took me 2-3 seconds just to get a mini-heal off.

    When I checked my ping to Pacific, I got 98-100, which is normal for me, as an East Coaster. Even my ping to European servers was (slightly) better than my LS ping.

    Anyone else having this problem?
