1. all games
2. random locations in game
3. spikes can be every 30 seconds or up to 1 minute between
4. they can last up to 30 seconds or at least until the game disconnects me
5. delay in spell casts, delay in auto attacks, game playing catch up and showing damage minions dying, location of champions all with in a split second
6. Primus Canada using a secondary network of Bell
7. Spikes were in WoW too but that was 6 months ago and haven't played since. So as of now only LoL

*edit*
forgot to mention this happens only around 'prime time'. It starts around 7:30 - 8pm and then continues until around 11:30pm - midnight.
Nothing else is affected, browsing the internet is fine, youtube downloading is not bad, and i use ventrilo to talk to friends and the ping is a steady 47ms

I even tried paying for Battleping and that didn't improve anything.

1. All Formats
2. Randomly
3. Every 5 secs or less
4. They last for few seconds
5. Everything freezes for few seconds and start again
6. Claro - Colombia
7. Yep, the spikes only happen in lol, the weird part, only happen in NA server, i tried at BR server and i didn't have spikes in that server.

I tried using a VPN, with good results, but i can't afford a good vpn.
The lag disappeared the weekend but today started again after the hotfix, worse than ever.

Also, if reporting in this thread, it would be extremely helpful to answer the questions below.

• In which format do the spikes occur: 3v3, 5v5, ARAM, unranked, ranked, etc?
• Does it happen at a particular time/location: during team fights, when you’re at spawn, randomly, etc?
• How often are the spikes?
• How long do they last?
• What symptom(s) do you see during spikes: champion “ice-skating” or jumping around, game hitches, etc?
• What’s your ISP?
• Do the spikes only happen in LoL?

Big ups to those who have posted already.

1. Solo/Duo Ranked, 5v5 Normal (I don't really play the other modes)
2. Randomly
3. Some days non-existent, sometimes every few minutes..
4. Anywhere from several seconds to several minutes depending on the day
5. On mild days, my ping will shoot up from 90ms to around 200ms and I'll have sluggish responses to my actions. Other days I'll get 400+ms or even the constant "Attempting to reconnect" message. While this is happening, though, I can still talk in Skype, load up web pages, and ping other servers with great response times..
6. Charter. I've played on multiple computers at a couple different houses in town but they're all Charter.
7. Yes.

14 *timed out after this.

I can ping google.com while LoL is lagging super hard - and get an average of 35ms.
LoL reports 50+ fps and often 40ms ping.. even while it's lagging like mad.

Im not sure if this helps or not. But when I spectate a game, I don't seem to get any lag at all.
