Lag and stuttering fixes in Genshin Impact

anyone noticing weird lag on genshin america server? it says i'm at 14 ms but damage is hitting enemies 5-10 seconds late and it won't let me change characters sometimes

Fans playing on Genshin Impact's American servers have noticed some serious lag taking place during gameplay. This lag is occurring regardless of the game's actual displayed ping, and seems to be an issue on the backend of the game. It's not currently known what is causing this serious lag, but it is making exploration and combat much harder for many players.

Does anyone who play Genshin on NA server have unusual lag problems today?Normally I have a good ping (30 ms to 50 ms) but today it keep fluctuating up to 370 ms... especially in combat. It's so annoying, it sometimes take more than 5 seconds to be able to switch characters. 😭

Fixing this particular lag is difficult, as it doesn't seem to be player-influenced, with much of the community reporting strong internet connections and reliable gameplay. Fans may have to wait for an official statement from Hoyoverse to learn about the source of this lag and possible fixes for it.

This can fix glitches or a non-functioning game, giving players the chance to jump back into Genshin Impact easily. This isn't a cure-all fix for any issue, but fans aren't risking anything by trying it.
