What is it with these @#$%^ lag spikes? THREE SECONDS PLUS.

I was within easy reach of my first real Kraken, in the Isokaze, when the lag went from almost nothing to OVER THREE SECONDS. I still managed to sink at least one ship while this was going on, but with lag that long I couldn't get my guns onto two sitting targets before team-mates wiped them out and ended the game. Just ONE of those. Just ONE would have done the job.

But no. Three-second delays. 

Wow. Just Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

 

(I say my first real Kraken because my first actual recorded Kraken came three days after I started playing, in baby seal-protected matchmaking, against Random bots.)

you don't get achievements in co op. 

I never said anything about co-op. Read the post carefully.

By lag are you referring to spikes in ping? I ask because a couple patches ago my ping held steady at 35-40ms, but now bounces between 35 and 700, and occasionally will cause a stutter or even a brief freeze.

Yep. Couldn't have been worse timed if you tried.

Lag can come from several sources including your own computer. I suggest you start there.

Random Bots is the Tell of Co-OP

I suspect hidden update shenanigans.

No. In the early days of Random battles the game populates empty places with bots. How could I have got a Kraken in co-op?

@Ensign_Cthulhu I have been in this game since beta testing and I have never seen bots fill any slots in random. However I have seen random be as few as 1 vs 1. In co op the opponents are all bots and bots are used to fill vacant slots on the human team.

Not likely - something along the route is far more likely.
