    Anyone having latency problems tonight? Suddenly every shard except tc shows 300+ latency. Was wondering if the problem is at the other end and shared by all, or on my end, a new phenomenon for me.

    I've been moving around noticeably less zippy tonight. I even logged into the CC to see if it was the same. It was. Noticeably more latency and jerky movement.

    I have been lagging for 2 weeks.

    Comcast internet - Bellingham WA. UO is not playable. I hate life.

    Looking thru all the shards in both clients, I seen that the lowest latency was 207ms. I have many that are 300ms and higher.

    Weird, Yamato is now showing 167ms latency while my home shard Pacific is at 237ms.

    I'm also experiencing 17% to 33% packet loss according the the CC.

    I've never seen the client ping result be very accurate in either client. Always use an outside program such as UOTrace or PingPlotter or the like to get the full route.

    I see a trend here. At the moment, I'm in Spokane, WA and I'm also on Comcast. A traceroute shows me being routed thru Comcast's Seattle based routers.

    Comcast here, in Denver. Latency looks like Temu's, with Atlantic (ugh) having the lowest, followed by the Japanese and Korean shards. It seems very strange that the overseas shards look better in terms of latency than the North American shards (with the exception of Atlantic). Just slogging through best I can.

    Am I the only one NOT on Comcast? Seems like that's been the common theme so far.

    I had the same problem yesterday night. Most american shards had a latency at around 1000 ms and package loss around 30%.
    I am in South America, and usually have a latency of 156 ms and next to no package loss to all the shards.

    Just an update on my Comcast Latency. California here. Last night all American shards were 300-400 ms. This morning I am back to normal 50-60 American and 120 or so to Asian. Wonder if Comcast will ever come clean on what is going on?

    It looks more like an Alter.net / EA problem from the traces shown.
