Ping have increased overtime

    • Ping have increased overtime

      Hi All,

      I am playing since the beta, from Dubai. My Ping has originally started with around 200, it went to an average of 220 roughly about 1 year ago, it went then to 280 after the f2p. I always believed it was the DDOS protection from the many silver sellers.

      Yesterday I was playing fine, since this morning it went over 300/310 constantly.

      At this stage I have the rubber band effect, I can’t play anymore.

      From my side, I have always been with the same provider, I had an upgrade on the speed of the account and I have a static IP.

      I have restarted the router, asked the ISP to restart the whole hardware from their side.

      It didn’t work out.
    • Hi @Berindon

      I have not been a player for long, but have also noticed what I consider to be unexpectably high pings. My ping never ever drops below 220, and I live in Scotland, UK.

      My connection is 200mbps virgin media, which across any other game brings a ping of around 20. Agreeably, there is not necessarily a need for ninja like latency in this game, but 220 is close to a quarter of a second round trip time, which definitely has an impact in grouped areas and busy fights.

      An Official response on this would be great.

      @RenegadeAndy your ping sounds double what it should be. I'm in UK too, and get a very consistent 100-110 on TalkTalk.

      That does indeed sound unusually high for Scotland.

      Can you try a VPN such as Exitlag and let us know if it helps?

      If it does help, it looks like there could be routing issues. In that case, please send me a PN with your IP address (whatismyipaddress.com/) and the name of your Internet provider. We will then contact our datacenter to see if they can sort it out the connection between them and your ISP.
    • something I have never seen just happened. I went to city went to the repair station and clicked on the dude, I got unmounted but few steps further away from the repair station and an error message that I am too far or soemthing.

      Packet loss or some other issue that causes stuff like this. It is getting very common that even I hit W or E or what ever in a dungeon nothing happens etc.
