    Oceania Lag Monster

    Well, it is self explanatory. Oceania is going through some extremely bad lag where it is impossible to play.

    Conspiracy theories are heard to say the UO gods want Oceania shut down, so have given lag to test our patience. Actually not sure what the problem is but would like to hear what others have to say.

    Many have complained to no avail or redirection to the website. Hope they get it sorted soon before players get peeved and decide to leave an already quiet Oceania.

    Not sure what the cause is but know that it started around the same time as the patch 69 was released on test and the snow was placed throughout the shards.

    I think if they wanted to shut Oceania down they'd just do it.

    That's not to say they won't, I just don't think they'd bother with subterfuge.

    I also doubt if it was a SHUT Oceania down mission that they would go about it so covertly they would advertise it and try to sell the moving to another shard so as not to just loose subscriptions.

    1 Week and still no fix for Oceania

    This has become a joke or maybe worse.

    How long does it take to go down the pet shop and buy a new hamster???

    Re: Oceania Lag Monster

    its getting to be a bad joke, a week later and no response from the Devs. A simple we are looking at the issue would be nice....but so far it feels like we are being ignored and the shard is being left to become a ghost town.

    I am not saying they are intentionally trying to shut the shard but they are certainly not helping it either.

    Re: 1 Week and still no fix for Oceania

    I could cope with the lag IF I knew they were not just ignoring the issue while they play around with some pixel crack that no one wants. Like a over sized 13 year vet mount that looks ridiculous.

    HELLO DEV'S LOOK AT US AND ACKNOWLEDGE OUR existence please

    An error has occured in the synchronization between the login servers and this world. Please close client and try again later.....
    How many times each night for a week should we be faced with this message, or if we do get on suffer unplayable lag and disconnection.
    Think I might go try some free shards, see which one might suit me for when I close all my accounts.

    If they have'nt fixed the lag issue soon, they should refund everyone on Oceania for one months fee's.

    The lag monster is here to stay, we will have to live with it or leave all together.

    And they wonder why people have stopped playing this wonderful game.

    Some care factor?? because it they did care it would have been fixed.

    Grumpy and getting grumpier every day.

    Please fix our shard so we can play, PLEASE !!!

    We wanted to highlight the official replies found on uhall for the Oceania community here.

    From Cal, UO Producer:

    Last report is we have guys on the ground in Australia checking out the network.

    In addition, there should be a post in the near future (in the next couple hours) about the status.

    On a personal note, I was in Japan last week and we had some pretty productive discussions about our options for better connectivity for our folks on OZ (shard nomenclature for Oceania).

    For right now we are trying to re-route traffic around areas that are causing the lag.

    Do your best to hang in there, and we'll do our best to get you an update.

    - C


    and

    I wrote in a separate thread about this.
    We have gotten news from Net Engineering that the problems with packet loss should be resolved.

    We will continue to monitor the problem, but from our side it looks like the problem is fixed. If the lag continues I'm sure you'll let us know,

    - C


    We will try to bring over any updated news on this issue for you.
    Thanks all!

    I don't see any improvement at all. As a player who grows plants it is EXTREMELY frustrating that I cannot keep a sustainable connection long enough to take care of them! When is the REAL fix gonna happen? I'm about to start demanding refunds for 2 weeks of a nearly unplayable game!

    I wanted to make sure to get at least this up for the Oceania community. We are always looking for good reporters if anyone would like to help keep Oceania updated with [News].

    Thanks guys and I wish you much luck with this lag issue!
     
  30. I'm playing from Wollongong. It's about 80kms south of Sydney, incase you weren't sure where it is. I don't usually have any issues with my connection.

    yep I know where you are, I only asked as I thought maybe our friends in the states that play Oceania would still have issues ...that is if they have fixed the lag.

    I have not logged in this afternoon but when I logged in earlier today it was still lagging...has there been any update?
     
  32. Amathist

    Do we have shard reporters at all at the moment?

    From Perth, will check when I get home from work to see if it's still lagging.

    Wollongong seems to be a UO-magnet. I know of at least two other current players from there, plus a handful who have passed on.

    We have a few listed but at times real life pulls us away. Oceania is one we'd love to pay the extra attention to and draw from your community here.

    On the continuing lag issue, I noticed the posts sharing location and ping times. I hope it helps them narrow down the problem a bit for a quicker fix.

    Happy Holidays guys and if you can log into Oceania enough to gather your gifts, I'll gladly share mine with you!

    It would be great to see some news reports on the EM events, for the past few they have had to cope with my rambles and quick jotting down of events.
    I miss news reports on whats going on.

    I still had lag as of 2am last night (couldn't sleep so logged in to check) I have not logged in yet this morning but I am trying to be hopeful.....*fingers crossed*
     
  43. Bomordan

    Bomordan Guest

    I am in the States, Mountain Standard Time. I have always had a slower ping rate as a result, but the game was always very playable until these past two weeks. Now I have almost constant lag mixed with intermittent standstills serious enough that there is no reason to stay on the game. It's VERY frustrating!
     
  44. Amathist

    Amathist Guest

    sadly your not the only one....a lot of people are not logging in at the moment or are simply sitting at the bank or in their houses waiting for the lag to pass.
     
  45. Yeah I have a couple of mates who i'm trying to get to play again. Who are the current players? I promise I won't stalk them or anything.
