Guild Wars 2 struggles with high latency but improves World Boss Rush


Today’s Guild Wars 2 story is a little bit of bad news, good news. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: The MMO is struggling with latency spikes for some players and there’s no simple fix for it.

ArenaNet admitted on the forums that it’s seen “ongoing gameplay performance issues” due to this problem, but that “there’s no single sweeping change” that can make things better. Instead, the studio is working with players to hunt down a variety of issues to tamp down on that latency.

The good news is that an upcoming event is going to have more rewards than ever before. “The World Boss Rush special event returns next week!” ArenaNet announced. “The dreaded Drakkar has been added to the list of bosses who could use a little extra thrashing, and Bonus Boxes of Goods now have a very rare chance to contain a Crystal Infusion or Heart of the Khan-Ur.”
