Riot pls. It's been a week since this thread was made, and yet still no response. I too am getting these lag spikes recently. I live in Ontario, using Rogers as my ISP. I usually get 20-25 mbps download speed, and average about 80-90 ms ping. However, since the patch a week ago, my ping spikes periodically to 300-3000 every few minutes. This has not happened in any other games.

Been getting severe lag spikes as well, used to receive between 10-15 MS for the year and a half I've been playing this game now it will go from that SKYROCKET to 3,000+ for a few seconds. Really makes trading and team fights a hit or miss. Any word a fix Riot?

Same here for me, my friend, and his brother. We basically surrendered the last game we played because it was basically unplayable.

Today I experienced a strange issue.

I played (and horribly lost) two PvP matches back to back with my friends. We're playing from Ontario, Canada. Suddenly, when I try to activate a skill shot, the game seems to debate the matter of it's use, then after a full second (or more) of pondering, the command eventually executes and I fire a bolt at a very offending bush, while the enemy player has enjoyed poking me the entire time.

Everyone has bad days, so I thought little of it. However, after talking with my friends, they've been complaining about the same issue.

Lately, a lot of bad reported players in the Tribunal are also complaining about lag.

Fearing obvious pattern recognition, I decided to look into the matter and found this thread. So I guess I get to join the list of people who are now experiencing game-breaking lag spikes.

It's frustrating when you can't do what you want - I can only imagine what it must be like for the people in this thread who were winning their games before the lag claimed their game.

I appreciate that Riot has a lot of matters to resolve on their hands. They're preparing for Season 3, with new champion releases, and incredible changes to the shop and jungle. There's a lot going on, and it's good. However, a growing community of players is experiencing a repeatable issue.

Is there a problem on the server side of this connection? That's the answer we're looking for. Is there too many people playing the game now? Is there some other related matter? Knowing whether or not there's a problem server-side will help people who are trying to track down the problem.

This is a very serious concern, as performance can be judged by the Tribunal. Although the Tribunal clearly states that bad players should be reported - not players who perform badly; the reporting options "Assisting Enemy Team" and "Intentionally Feeding" are used to flag bad players by the community. I have personally witnessed people who have had a string of bad plays get punished by the Tribunal because of scores like 1/7/3, or 0/4/0. These lag concerns can cause players to do much worse. There are people who were winning their games, whom then seem to stop playing, and throw the game for the other team. Such matters quite literally appear to assist the enemy team, or appear as an intentional feed. Now lag is responsible for warnings, time bans, or worse!

Now - to borrow a convention from a previous post:

tl:dr - Lag leads to bad performance - bad performance leads to Tribunal - Tribunal voters ban bad performer so they don't play with him/her.

Is there an issue with lag on the server-side of League of Legends?

Thank you for taking the time to review this matter and respond.

I've had this issue as well, and my friend who was using the same connection did not experience the issue. Help, riot, you're my only hope.
