    Im pinging 40-60 constantly to Catskills. However, the lag has been -crazy- for me in game. Wondering if anyone else is having similar issues? Or knows how to fix it

    Likewise, I ping from 40-100+ on the two shards I play most Atlantic and Sonoma. Lag on ATL is reasonable but Sonoma in nearly unplayable. If a monster gets a poison on my I'm usually dead, can't get a cure off or run away most times. I ran a tracert to ATL and it does 11+ hops around servers in EUROPE ( where the ping goes to hell ) before coming back to the Amazon servers in Washington on the WEST coast even though it's supposed to be an EAST coast server. Sonoma only does a couple hops around Europe before ending up in Washington and yet my ping is 2-3x greater than ATL. EA switching to Amazon's cloud as all but killed this game for me.
