Conversely I found POE to still have annoying desync issues and gave up on it awhile ago.

Outside of launch window Diablo 3 was fine. It had many other problems but latency isn't really one.

Not usually, no, but 2 nights in a row they did after 2.0. I think it was Thursday and Friday. The first night getting into games was very hit and miss (maybe connecting to 20% of games), but once in you were ok. The second night you could create games but the latency was out of this world bad (>1000 often.) There were lots of official posts about it, but in the end the result was "server load."

That's what I mean by launch window stuff. Patch days, expansion launches, retail launch, etc. Known big traffic days where its pretty easy to avoid any issues by just playing something else. If this stuff was a deal breaker for me I wouldn't be playing many games at all.
