You're saying exactly the same thing as I say....
Except you dont distinquish between "lag (spikes where things disappear) and "latency" (delay with high ping).
The delay is always there, whereas the spikes are not. Most of the lag spike problems (look closely im not saying "delay"), are caused by the server.
Example: At ts1 japan I had quite a big delay in movements, but....I hardly ever had lag. (mobs hardly ever disappeared for me) and I had around 300ping usually.
Maybe dont jump to flames so easily, like so many are already doing here.
