    I couldn't even bank sit, cause I couldn't step into the bank. Recalled and then waited and waited took one step and waited some more....I ended up giving up before I ever finally made it.

    Yeah the lag is a less than auspicious return to UO for me.
    Ive been on a bit of a hiatus (yet maintaining a paid account) for the past couple years while finishing off my degree...
    I come back and the first day was fine... then there's this patch and boom, unplayable.
    This in addition to finding the place to be pretty much a ghost town, it's certainly making me wonder why i bothered keeping my account while gone...
    *sigh*

    I see it's downloading a new patch again today, may this bring improvement? Hope so.

    EDIT.
    AHHHH! HOUSE I WAS MOVING FROM AND HAD TO GIVE UP TRYING TO GET ANYTHING DONE THE LAST TWO DAYS FRICKING COLLAPSED... WHILE YOUR BLOODY LAG MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO PLAY.

    ffs
    thought i had another day or two up my sleeve... bloody hell.
    i give up.

    AND ITS STILL IMPOSSIBLY LAGGY.
    Yeah i picked the right time to come back.

    That was a couple hiundred bucks worth of keeping my account paid up the last couple years for bloody nothing

    Sorry to hear that mate :(
    Even crafting spyglasses is impossible with this lag.
    The rat must have died in the oceania server box and never been replaced.

    I don't mean to be cruel, but when has Oceania not been laggy?

    Umm Just because you lag on a server 1/2 way arround the planet does not mean its laggy for others! But then americans never do well with geography! but thanks for the bump on the post. And yeah still laggy! 12/11/10

    Most of the Europeans I've talked with find Oceania laggy as well. Not an American problem, your ****ty shard is just laggy in general, that's why no one ever plays Oceania. I spent about a year playing Oceania and hardly ever saw another guild in Fel.

    Oceania can be laggy for those outside Oceania but it is normally fine for those inside.....however this is getting pretty pathetic and I am normally on the side of positivity.
     
  13. LordSoth

    Yes compared to other MMOs, Oceania server has (usually) great ping.
    Except for the last few days ofcourse.

    I just tried Oceania from East Coast US and it was normal for me, which is laggy but runnable.

    Yeah uhh, it'd be laggy for europeans too. It's also on the other side of teh work for them.

    Whereas from work, ive pinged <10ms to oceania in the past.

    Thank your for this post as i needed a good laugh with the problems we are having. Might be an idea to actually find out where and what something is before making yourself look like an idiot making comments.

    Devs please at least let us know you are looking into the problem.

    5 days of unplayable lag and lock ups and not even a comment of "we are looking into this" is a bit of a joke....

    The only idiot is a person who thinks physical distance matters foremost when it comes to the Internet, lol.

    Sorry dude, wow that's pretty much a complete failure on knowing how data transfer functions on the internet.

    But the current situation on OC is not your normal lag issue there is something seriously wrong. The shard has basically been unplayable for 5 days now.

    it's getting to the stage when they pick out Diablo 3, it might be the end for me with UO if they dont improve things for people that don't live in USA and Asian shards..

    Distance and geographical region matters quite a bit. You will get bad pings from Europe to the US and visa versa. While much better pings if you stay in your own geographical region.

    If distance didn't matter, then we wouldn't need localized servers.

    If everyone had the same service, distance would matter foremost. But if my technology is better (ie T3 vs 56) then the physical distance counts for less. The only thing that matters as far as distance is if one stop on the route is broken, which is why those native feel extra lagged right now, because one stop close to the final destination in the route is theoretically compromised -- which means we all stop at the same "physical" place, and drop out. These people are acting as if we are all waiting in a physical line to get access to a server, as if a person in Europe has to take a ship or something lol and does not have the ability to get there as fast as someone in "Oceania" because of geography. That's absurd. It's all about what technology you have available, then it's up to the stops and if they're communicating right. Don't forget this game was developed when all we had was 28.8, lol and yeah, distance sure mattered foremost then regarding localities.

    Wow your a.....! read your post again and relaize how stupid it sounds or have you managed to break the light speed cap on electrical/lazer/Rf signals? Someone within 1000km of target will allways have the advantage over someone 10000km Yes its about the tech but its about all the tech involved your t3 means nothing if you hit a speedbumb along the way. Right now BIG BIG SPEED BUMPS TO OCEIANA THATS THE POINT OF THE THREAD NOW GO TROLL ELSEWHERE

    First off the server for Oceania is in Singapore and was doing well.
    I live on west coast of USA and get great ping and can run very well on Oceania.Most times that is till now.
    This lag is reminding me of the time the ocean cable got snaged and almost all net activity that went through that cable had to be rerouted to the other cable on Perth side. Was a bloody mess to play UO till it was fixed.

    Hey xenophobe, if you're going to type in all caps you should at least spell your shard name right. Anyway, in the post you responded to, I already explained how stops effect the trip.

    Thanks for clearing up the geography. I honestly hope the shard returns to normal for everyone.

    well its still doing the intermittent lag thing..one minute you can log in and it seems fine, the next you can barely take two steps in 5 minutes its beyond a joke and completely unplayable.

    I had one guild member today tell me she was experiencing a packet loss of 65% thats just beyond frustrating can someone please look into this and let us know an ETA on it getting fixed.

    I dont really understand it I just know its unplayable here, locally on Oceania, yet playable on the other side of the world, which is not normal, Oceania is pinging 15 ms, and US shards 335-350ms yet I cant play Oceania without dropping something in my backpack and waiting 30 seconds for it to apear, or friezing comletely and having to relog.
     
  35. Amathist

    Amathist Guest

    I don't understand it totally either ...I am guessing it has to be an issue with the local Oceania server and the latest patch but the why's and the how to fix it ., is well beyond me. I just hope they do something soon.

    Oceania was already a quiet shard, some of us had recently been doing work to try and get more interest in it and now this...hardly a welcome to new players and hardly encouraging for old players.

    Some info on what the flock is going on would be nice EA!

    At least spend 30 seconds pretending you give a schit about oceania.......

    1 Week No FIX No Response!

    Oceania is still almost unplayable and we have had no response from anyone at EA.

    This has been going on for a week now.

    EA :loser:

    I Agree - in Texas, went to Asuka, not too bad. Oceania was indeed unplayable. There in Haven, never even made it to the bank, didn't matter, couldn't speak anyways. If that was my home shard, I'd be pissed.Pretty bad this was a 5mb connection.Ping means little concerning bandwidth

    Re: 1 Week No FIX No Response!

    What is the deal here? I had a 67% packet loss on Oceania last night, couldn't move and the game was unplayable. This has been going on far too long. None of the other shards are reporting such problems, so why this one and how come no one is fixing it?

    I would expect good customer service to at least acknowledge the problem and let us know it is being addressed!

    Its been a week like this now and we have had no reply from any EA staff....

    Its reasons like these that people stop playing this game...

    I would be content with a "we are aware of the problem but have no clue how to fix it as yet" I just wan't to know that it is being looked into and not just ignored.

    Re: 1 Week No FIX No Response!

    Everyone I have spoken to that plays on Oceania is having the same issue, random attacks of lag and serious packet loss.

    This is killing the shard further, it was already a quiet shard but after a week of no response from the Dev's and the issue still very much present current players are starting to get very frustrated.

    The sad part is we where just starting to get community going again with Em events and the shard was becoming a little more active.......now well its worse the a ghost town, and because of this issue everyone that logs in is pissed off because of the lag, that is if they can log in at all.

    Can we please get a response even a simple "WE ARE HEARING YOU" would be appreciated. We may be a small shard but we pay our subscriptions just like everyone else.

    I logged into Oceania from California and can play. I get lag spikes, but as others have mentioned, it's not something that would prevent me from playing. Have you guys tried using UOTrace to figure out where the problem is at?
