    Lag spike when players join server.

    Massive lag spikes when players join the server. This was never a problem last year, not sure when it started. It's really bad, especially during tough fights, it's garbage to get lagged out because someone joined while I'm in the middle of a lg battle.

    It also lags sometimes when they quit too.

    I don't think anybody managed to understand what caused this issue. We all wish it could be understood and fixed. At least id is aware of the issue.

    Well this is obviously something newish, it never used to happen. I think it's getting worse but not sure, but very laggy during last 3 matches but that could just be lots of people leaving and joining etc.

    It might not have happened to you before, but countless people have experienced it for years.

    First thing to do is make sure you have:
    /cg_deferPlayers 1

    If that's already on 1 and you experience those lags, you may be experiencing the cvar change lag. You can make a bind that toggles a random cvar and check if that lags you as well.

    Ah, that wasn't present in my config and you know what that makes sense. I remember when I used to join games the player models would be all different until I died or something else happened, then they would switch. I put it in and I'll report back. ty
