    lag! i figured that was why you wouldn't 1v1 me, although you didn't seem very laggy in front of the koc train...lemme know if you want your gear back, i'll have someone toss it on a vendor. :)

    It is a good time to toss a bunch of junk. *sorts shinies and trinkets*

    The reason, "I" was leaving because over vent I said to everyone OMG guys walk me back to the gate, im pinging outta this world, I couldnt even move, when I was dieing? did You see me smoke bomb? did you see me chug a heal? maybe one got off, but Everyone was telling me to heal cure and all that and I was locked into one postion, standing there...is that how it happened, cause thats what my guild mates told me happend?? is that accurate?

    Either way I dont care about dieing, I care about the lag getting fixed, becasue this is very frustrating, but I guess were not having a lag problem in UO are we RU??? It all must be in my head. BTW, did you see this post say anything about a fight? or Dieing or anything of that nature?? or crying about that? NO, im concerned about the lag, it seems you need to pound your chest a bit and try and validate yourself somehow, if thats whats makes your gaming experience fun, have at it, I know I wouldnt feel that proud over something like that, but hey....Thats just me

    [​IMG]

    But I guess that ping above is in my head to huh???

    Have Fun Ru, when the lag clears up on the Whole EA Side, Id love to Duel ya in a pit one v one, if thats what your asking? lets give EA a chance to fix this stuff first and im Game

    Maybe its where you guys are, but I seem to have no lag issues. Though Im not PvPing right now, dont have a char yet. Though I do see a lag spot when crossing server lines. But other then that it seems good. But Im also used to slightly higher pings of 110ish, being from North of the 49th.

    If they know it's a routing issue (sounds like that is what they suspect) it shouldn't take long to get resolved. Some network carriers staff morons, which could make it take a couple of days. I'm guessing by Friday at the latest, if it's the network. Sooner if they (the guilty ISP) get the right people on it.

    We are fortunate to have a good amount of people from different place's in the US, and we have a gentelman named Pappy thats very good with computers, and he seems to think its a balance issue, when our southern friends down south are pinging good, our nothern folks are unplayable, and when the northern people are playable our east coast players are unplayable, I happen to live in a romote location anyway, so Im used to slighly higher then average pings to, but tonight it got crazy again, it went from like 95 to 322 with 50 percent packet loss, up and down real fast, thats what is making it unplayable for myself,

    It almost seems like EA is trying to drive everyone away. I was terrable a week ago, then it cleared up, then it started kinda spiking again, them bamn!!! Last couple days, terrable, so im choosing not to play anymore, to hard and to frustrating...:yell:

    I was lagging terribly for 2 weeks when my routing went through SprintNet. Then it got switched to Level3 a few days ago, and I've been fine since. I think someone is working on it.

    Why Wouldnt it? unless your one of the lucky ones who isnt experiencng any.
    Then of course it wouldnt bother them, I have multiple accounts and its upsting knowing im paying this amount of money a month to have fun with a game I really enjoy and look to as a release, and now I cant even play, if you like uo as much as I do? you can relate, getting off from a hard day of stressful work and looking forward to forgetting about all of it and play some UO, then logging in and You cant even move or locking up every five seconds, yes im frustrated, ive put up with it for two weeks now, but this is getting ridicluous, and who better to vent to them fellow UO players.....Shoot!

    Im actually starting to feel better........lOL

    Packetloss is definitly a hardware issue, with whatever ISP your losing at. Next time you are like that, do a tracert (instead of ping) to the siege server, and you can see where your losses are. And that will help them find the issue.

    High pings are one thing, you can live with those, but packetloss, murders it. Even a few % packetloss, and its unplayable, even with a ping in the 20s.

    Has the lag gotten better for anyone else tonight? I was actually able to run from one side of my castle to the other without problem, and it seems to be staying that way. I was just wondering if I just got lucky, or if other people have noticed a difference.

    Bo has been lucky or has Bo, Bo has not experience this lag monster everyone is talking about. However, no one is even in game becuase of the lag issues. So this leaves Bo with no one to kill. Bo is now training skills on Bo's mule, great fun.

    Since it's not directly in EA's hands all they can do is keep asking.

    I remember a time not too long ago when they used Sprintlink for connections to Europa and Drachs, the problems stayed till Sprintlink was dumped. That company, in their infinite wisdom, decided the best route from places in mainland Europe to London, England was via Washington DC. Giving them a minimum ping of over 300.

    I believe the problem was caused by a lack of peering, whatever that means.

    I always ping between 160 and 200...

    Maybe EA is trying to help my pvp by reducing you all to my level?

    WAhaahahahahaha

    P.S. EA may claim the issue is not at their end, but the trace routes I have seen show different. All of the ones I have seen have great pings until it hits the fert servers...

    Fert server is the final hop when you do a trace route to uo, and the full address ends in ea.com

    Code:
    fert08-eqx-iad.ea.com                 159.153.224.234      15     224ms       22
