I don't think it's related to the ping, but rather to how long each game tick lasts. For whatever reason, when the game gets too crowded during dxp weekends, on w2 especially a game tick begins to last longer than usual. Personally I saw it when I trained with cleansing crystals, the timer bar would expire a lot earlier than the exp was exhausted, and the exp drops were occurring slower than usual. Had no lag because I have a very good connection, the game was just in slow motion basically.
