Cause of lag issues found?

A user on reddit (reliablebkers) seems to be on the trail of the lag issues. I'm not sure I can link it here so I'll explain it.

Through some testing by him and other players, it SEEMS like your alliance hitting help to refresh your champs is the culprit behind the random lag and dropped frames. I have no idea why that could possibly be the cause unless some wonky coding happened, but multiple tests by different users have been pretty positive from the looks of it.

It sounds like the best way to avoid the lag (in arena) is to wait until you're done with a cycle before asking for help at all. If this is the case, I'd think that players who don't do much arena would experience the lag much less than players who spend a lot of time in arena. That workaround most likely won't help if you're finishing up some arena grinding, asking for help, then going to aq/aw... but it's better than nothing I guess.

We have some Infinity Watch line group members doing further testing to see if results are the same. After one cycle of champs on my end and asking alli members to hit help after a small delay for me to get to aq, I did notice the lag.

Feel free to join us in the Infinity Watch chats for more discussion/testing and please add your findings here in the forum. It'd be nice to get to the bottom of this.
