    1) And what shard might you be attempting to connect to?
    2) What ping does the client display for that shard?

    Yeah I'm lagging horribly on my last 3 hops (Over 200 ms). It starts with 144.223.246.6, a sprintlink hub, and goes on to the ea hubs.

    I'm pinging really high on Atlantic right now too. I am normally around 50's but I've been getting ~170ish all day today. When I do trace route my problem seems to be at the last 3 hops too. :(

    My result:
    Could not connect to Ultima Online. Please try again in a few moments.
    But also the patcher for UO Assist fails, so it seems to be a problem outside of EA.

    well, I'm no expert, but for me I think it means the server

    Eth1-7.edge03.abn-iad.ea.com

    which belongs to ea.com, needs a swift kick, or other appropriate remedial action.

    yup seems like its on a ea server.
    Joanna did make a post saying it was been looked into,( a one line answer )
    but no time frame has been given when to expect a fix.

    you'd have thought with it affecting this many players that they would make some sort of official announcement about it.

    i mean they can make posts showing off their Halloween costumes but cant make a post giving us updates about whats being done to fix the lag.

    still Atlantic is lagging real bad, still unplayable. its been over a week now.
    if the devs fixed it for LS shard then why not Atlantic.

    No, it's not fixed on LS at all.
    Last night at about 10pm those routers cleared up only to turn back to the same problem today.
    :(

    Yep, bag lag, and a bad time for it with the current event! It's pretty much a killjoy.

    on uoherald they have asked everyone with lag problems to submit a trace route
    to uobugs.com if everyone can do this then it'll give the devs much more of an idea of whats causing it.

    As we all see in our different Trace Routes, most of the issue lies in ea-gw2. For me this ping hop has been as high as 215, never does my ping usually exceed 110/112 at any of the last 5 hops.

    Still if your last hop is ping 115, you should be okay no?

    No 115 ping is horrible.
    My normal ping to my shard is 30.

    I deal with the 110/115, but stick one hop in there jumping 175 to 215 ping & you studder step all over.

    Hrm I play siege from Denmark, I ping 110 normally. That is a fine ping even for pvp.

    Your correct 110/120 is Ok to PvP in, but stick a 170 to 250 Ping in the middle & see what happens. Now you see it, now you don't on objects

    130ish ping might not sound all that bad. Add in the packetloss tho, and believe me it is not fun especialyl when you were used to a ping of 17 w/ 0 loss.

    I have barely logged in let alone tried to pvp in the last week or so because of this.
