I'm having a terrible time lately in pvp. Every time I am "dumped" on, whether it is by a mage, dexxer, archer or thrower, I encounter severe lag. I can't figure out what is going on. It started a few patches ago, but around that time I also upgraded my video card. So I can't figure out whether it is my new video card, one of the EC patches, or one of the Pinco's UI patches that is the problem, or some driver or hardware issue related to my new video card. When I run benchmarks on my video card they are fine. My video card is rock solid stable and performs above average for my operating system and combination of hardware. The one thing I haven't noticed is whether there is any unusual hardware activity, such as paging file activity, or spikes in cpu or gpu usage. I'm going to run tests on that right now and see if I notice any results. As for the usual suspects, I run spyware and anti-virus scans once a week, and those have all been clean, and there are no indications such as popups, system slowdowns, or unusual network activity to indicate that I have any issue of that sort. I also defrag my hard drives once a week and have specifically defragged my EC folder just to be doubly sure.
