ArenaNet has provided an update regarding performance issues in Guild Wars 2. Here’s what they had to say.

The update comes as a follow up to the previous update they provided in August. The issue at the time was down to latency which, as expected, creates some real frustration in gameplay and particularly tense situations.

They stated at the time that there was no single sweeping fix to rectify the issue. Now, however, it seems several changes have been made,

“We’ve made a number of changes that have improved general performance, but as we mentioned in our previous update, there are a lot of factors that cause lag and our changes haven't had the impact we were hoping for.

We know the persistent issues are frustrating and we want them improved as much as you do, so we're now looking into bigger changes with broader impact on the problem. These changes take longer to test and implement, and we appreciate your patience as we continue working on solutions.”

Hopefully this clears up some issues for you folks.
