Can I get everyone that gets random lag and dies to comment Peal Abyss doesnt believe anyone has this issue.
I am hoping to achieve only 1 thing. That Pearl Abyss at minimum says that they have a issue, and stops blaiming players for their server issues and net code.

Based on a very overview, Black Desert Online uses TCP to attempt to ensure that packets get from and to the client.

However for whatever reason theses TCP packets time out. The effect of this is usually the following from a player perspective.


1. Mob was attack on screen but HP did not move. Your packets never reached the server, so you never attacked.

2. Mob teleports and desyncs. Server Packet never reached the client, and when they did the mob moved.

3. An area of effect cone is displayed incorrectly. This can be seen on certain bosses or in Hystria ruins where mobs have a frontal cone. The mob can sometimes be facing the wrong way on your client, however the damage is being sent to the opposite side towards your character. This I am unsure exactly on why, but dark seekers also has this issue where the back of the mob may not be the back of the mob due to server lag.

4. Random damage stops  and a catch up to damage taken.

5. Fairy not using potions, since for whatever reason this is client side, seems like a waste of bandwith if every player in the game has a fairy, and sends that they used a potion to the server.

In PvP

1. CC a enemy and they teleport 5 ft away and fall.

2. Grab a enemy but end up being grabbed.

3. Lag gaps on classes that don't have gaps between skills due to lag on the player client example valk jump, musa dash and being cced in super armor many other examples.

There are many more examples of lag, theses are the ones I believe everyone has noticed at some point.

It's great on the ocean when you shoot a ghost ship and nothing happens, then it teleports way up ahead.

Completely unable to grind Gyfin Under lately because of constant lag & disconnects. Blown up a Girin's, Rebellious and some Macalods and I'm down to one crystal restore remaining. Good thing PA will sell me another for $25.....

Not having connection issues with anything other than BDO either, not even a hiccup. It's really frustrating and killing my desire to do anything outside of lifeskilling because it's just so risky.

Also experiencing this. 
Npc delay is everywhere.
Tried doing a rift boss but everything froze except for me and the hp stopped moving all together. Then eventually updated to show the boss was almost dead. Heilang was floating in the air frozen in time during this too.
Tried leveling a new season char only to get killed and supposedly lost a crystal because my character stopped working mid-grind but the mobs were allowed to freely attack me forever. Respawned on the spot so I could save my t10, but still couldn't move. Tried using Escape but whole screen froze. Closed the game and logged back in just so I could at least get my horse, I was outside the mobs because Escape apparently did work. Tried whistling for my horse, but game kept saying it was out of range even though it wasn't. Tried running to the nearest stable so I could recall it that way (stable was 500m away) once I reached 250m from the stable the game rubberbanded me all the way back to being 500m away.... Stood there frustrated not sure how I was going to get my horse, then poof it finally randomly spawned where I had originally whistled for it when the game kept saying it wasn't in range...

Got my horse, went to nearest safe zone, and haven't logged in since. Don't even want to log in to see if I really lost a crystal or not.... Tbh I don't know if I even care about the crystal. I'm just frustrated about this entire thing in general I guess.

Edit: (I want to add that my bf is also having these issues, so it is not just my PC, however we do live in the same house)

Just played AoS and 100% of the time when I on Draka would grab a Valk they would 100% of the time grab me out of my grab animation while they are literally over my head.
