If you did something to Fert08 -- it was appreciated. Connecting to the East Coast servers has been MUCH improved today. Right now averaging 41ping compared to average of 200 all day yesterday. Things are back to normal for the moment. If the Dev's did anything here to address this - thanks & don't change anything back! LOL *** EDIT : Well, it is changed back and pings are 300 again to Great Lakes and west coast shards are normal. Note tracerts posted below. I'm going to post my crappy trace every hour until someone from EA responds saying they are looking at their network or working with their provider because UO IS UNPLAYABLE at these speeds.
