Bump, again. Just had to take a leave because this was happening for literally 20 seconds at a time. The lack of response from you, Riot, is absolutely appalling. The game is unplayable for some people because of this issue, and you choose to ignore it. I, personally, spend money on this game regularly -- just because it's fun when I can play at my school, where we don't get this lag. It's a great game, when it works.

Trust me, you have PLENTY of people who would give you the information you need to fix it. We'd rather have a working game than all the champions you put your time towards, as multiple people have said, but that is ignored also. I realize it's a "free" game, but there are people out there who put as much money -- or more -- into LoL as they would into a game which wasn't free, and infinitely more who at least contribute every now and then. Sometimes, you have to stop doing the fun stuff and get into the not so fun stuff to improve/fix the game. That's what all the members -- those who do and don't pay -- want. Honestly, I don't intend to stop pursuing this until it's fixed. For god's sake, Riot, at least respond with SOMETHING, even if it isn't a fix.

Getting some massive lag spikes continuesly every few seconds or to a minute or so. Constantly losing my control over my hero for 10-15 seconds until the spike goes away. Then this continues to happen over and over and over...doesn't go away from start of the game to the end. This started after the irelia patch, before then i had perfect stability in game.

The game is running smoothly, everything is moving correctly... but you.
You can't move. You can even see the effect of your mouse actions on the screen, but the char doesn't want to do anything.

It happens to me once every two games. Everywhere (once at the fountain with nunu...). And at any time of the game. And I never play the same heros.

Sometimes just 5-10s, sometimes it's very long.

It made my client crashes one or two times.

May we have an update on this please? You said this is #1 priority...

Its kind of interesting, this bug evolved into something a bit, larger for me. I use Verizon DSL and I tried working with one of their techs while this was occurring. We did tons of diagnostic tests (In reality the tech did while I sat around for a few hours on the phone).

He was unable to detect a problem with the connection, however; we tried a trial and error method of altering changes one by one to see if it was resolved and something worked!

The steps that worked was to disassemble settings for my connection line and IP's which I originally had allowing me to connect to the internet through Verizon. We rebuilt new ones (as if a new line had been installed) and these problems stopped. The technician told me essentially all that had been changed was my IP address and the other stuff was just refreshed.

I have had absolutely none of this 'glitchy' lag ever since this fix. I no longer become disabled (in a sense) while I watch the rest of the game proceed. However, I have noticed some de-synchronization in character animations with their actions since I have done this, pretty odd.

Note: I had no lag or diagnosable problems from Verizon's side when I was experiencing the problem. I had no latency fluctuation or problems when testing my download/upload speeds. I also had all firewalls disabled and all ports open at the time (re-enabling firewalls hasn't caused problems after the fix).

Is it possible the servers occasionally 'dislike' or 'deter' certain IP addresses and all that is needed is a IP reset?

I tried to prioritize it, but without any way to reproduce this my hands are tied really.

To me it seems like a connection problem.

Would more logs help, possibly, to see if you can find a trend? (this isn't the only issue I'm having, just the main one, so you'd probably have a ton to sort through with mine, but I'd be willing to post them and I'm sure others would too).

I think I explained this before, but I'm hesitant to say it's my end because I run WoW without issues and ran the HoN beta, when I tried it, without issues on the same computers that have these problems with LoL. Plus, tons of people are having the problem.
