    Well I tried the old server a few times and the ping was bad for me so I didn't bother with the server at all. When the move was announced I hoped it would be good news for me and I am now enjoying the game again after 10 years away.

    I am in the UK and I get a rock steady 116 ping to this server (without any VPN). If the old server is reinstated my days on this shard will be over :( the connection was unplayable for me.

    If you want a good 24/7 population please keep it somewhere where us Europeans can enjoy a good connection.

    Thanks

    Seriously, is it just me?

    I ask around and certain people have no issues, and half of NewP guild says they have 'lag' issues.

    The only place I will DC on a constant minute by minute basis, and that is in brit. Is anyone else with me when I say its all the fucking bank sitters or yelpers just clogging up the shitter?

    It cannot possibly be my computer. No way in hell.

    Still in the works. It is just quiet right now as all options are being reviewed.

    I'm readingn in these posts where some have no lag issues. The time the lag happens is around 7pm - 9pm CST... which is peak internet usage times.

    Right..so one of the hops is having a major malfunction. My point was that some people play on different time zones - maybe the ones having NO lag issues are on a time zone when lag doesn't happen. I don't have lag all of the time either.. only during peak usage hours. I can ping other servers just fine during lag on UOF - so its not a problem with my connectivity.

    Distance to server does not equal good ping. It is the internet route that matters. I can live next door to a data center and still ping outrageously to it based on where I am being routed.

    This is also why VPNs work so well because they change the routing so that it doesn't hit slow routing servers.

    Yep.. I realize that distance has no relativity to ping. But, living closer to the server should mean fewer hops.. which was what I was referring to.

    Yet that's not true either. I am not tech savvy but I live right by Chicago and when I was lagging it was crap. I'd pig 12 lowest then highest 660. So idk. But I haven't been lagging at all this week

    Allow me to illustrate how some have been experiencing UOF recently with the inconsistencies, myself included at times:

    White jersey = the lag
    Red jersey = effected UOF populous

    As you can see, it is very unpleasant.

    Have posted my packet info on the correct thread. Just wanted to say it has become unplayable unless your just crafting around prime time. The last 3 ips its routed to time out every so often and you have no chance of living if your farming, pvping, champ/rda. I end up just logging out early every night. Hope it gets worked out.

    The 24/7 I mentioned was in relation to players on the server. If the server is really bad for the majority or EU players they will leave so the server will have really quiet times instead of bustling 24/7.

    Wouldn't you prefer to log on knowing there will be people around regardless of time?
