    Ello,

    Been while since I've been on UO due to other issues, now I am back.

    Since before I moved and now am running Comcast 8mb down 2mb up in washington state. On Siege I am pinging 195ms average now and I can barely move. It feels like 500ms, run very choppy stop for a lag spike ever few tiles then have to wait a few secs to move again. This is unplayable. I thought my old connection was bad. Any ideas?

    Pinging 30ms on Origin aswell as many other servers. Average ping to google is 35ms.

    Thanks in advance.

    Comcast sucks ever since they bought my cable company 3 month ago the service is ****. i used to have 10 down and 1 up and ping 25 to siege now it 5 down and I'm lucky if it can get 250k up with a 120 ping to siege. I'm dropping them and getting fios.

    I always forget how to find my ping.

    I didn't have any lag issues until last night. It was the 3-step Lag dance. I do hope they fix it soon.

    I can't help feeling there's more to this than meets the eye. People are posting traceroutes with pings around 150ms and saying they can barely move. That's close to my normal ping from UK and I move just fine. 150 ping doesn't slow you down to 'barely move'
    Something else that's struck me is it seems to be the East Coast and European servers that are affected, and which ones went missing entirely not too long ago?

    Add me to the list! I'm in the US Central time zone and can barely move in game. :(

    I finally got so frustrated with it that I logged out. Gonna go find something else to do.

    I posted this earlier and for some reason it was posted mid thread instead of at the end where it should have been... any idea why?


    I posted it after Kat but it showed up above Goron... *whispers there are ghost in the machines*

    It seems Stratics is SNAFU too. *nods* Timestamp issues.

    Nothing major on Stratics... just a few time stamp issues. Likely cleared up by now.

    Maybe it's just their perception. If someone usually pings 20 and then jumps up to 150, it probably does feel like they can't move compared to what they are used to. Or, they are just being over dramatic and feel the need to exaggerate. ;)

    Same here on both counts. I have not had the need to check my ping since I came back. As far as not being able to move goes...it could be perceptions, or needs of the game. I was running in stealth and not breaking stealth, the lag was so bad. To someone actually trying to fight or run, this would be very bad.

    When you are running and stop dead for a second or two and when the screen gets a wrinkle in it there is a problem. The diferance in ping isn't the problem. The problem is when EA fires their employees to save money. They fired the guy that feeds the hamsters that run the sever. When the hamsters die there is no one to put new hamsters in the wheels.

    Still no improvement on ping its not a matter of preception for me I have never pinged good but have always pinged playable "at times" before. Now that I am on comcast I was hoping to come back to UO PvP but it is completely unplayable right now.

    Not boasting, and definitely not trying to rile anyone up, but I have not had any issues with lag thus far. I am east coast USA, and have a steady 38ms ping. Just information for those trying to solve the mystery. Hope it gets fixed soon, though, as finding anyone on the shard is nigh impossible right now.

    The true problem is packetloss, so I understand it.

    High ping (150-200) is moveable but slow, packetloss is all about you not receiving the server's info fast enough, so it happens before you see it. This makes for stuttering running and whatnot. Notice it doesn't seem as bad if you walk instead of run.

    Rykus could explain it better than I, or Skylark...

    *edit* just checked. Utterly unplayable for me from CA.

    How you can tell that the lag is really bad is that the sheep can out run you when your shearing them.

    Unreal.

    About the time that everyone complained of horrible lag, my ping time was cut by about 40%.

    Used to ping 120-130. I am now pinging 69-70.

    I don't know about you all, but I don't want them to change anything :)

    Ok, not true...cause it is really boring in game by yourself. I just hope they don't break me when fixing you.
