What's with the LAG?

    Anyone else experiencing this? I have been back in UO for 3 days after a long break and I'm pinging like 130-250 with at least 20% packet loss. When I was playing 6 months ago I was easily pinging 50 or 60. What has happened?

    I ran a tracert and when it hits some ATT server it goes berserk! Going from 60ms-80ms to 170ms-300ms.

    Is this just me? Or is UO just trying to kill off the rest of the ppl that play this game?

    0 lag for me.

    I don't think the ATT server is UO's responsibility.

    Yep, I'm having some issues as well. One of the hops on my tracert is pinging 160-200.
  4. You have a bad connection.

    Contact your ISP.

    I am not kidding or being smart.

    There is a hop in your connection that is bad. Not EA/Mythics fault. It has to do with who your ISP routes through.

    Call them.

    Good luck.

    Ya I have had this for months as well, one hop will jump up to 200-300 ms, and I'll also get random packet loss. Lag spikes are really noticeable in the game too. Sometimes can bearly move.

    Speaking of lag..

    For the last 2 and a half weeks, I've been pinging higher than usual to Great Lakes (my shard), Chesapeake, and Lake Superior. All the other shards are normal. Odd that I'm lagging on those 3 shards and not Atlantic, considering I'm playing from Washington.

    And, the latency is mainly between 9am - 4:30pm. Lol. Weird stuff. Sucks though, makes pvp pretty much impossible. Anyone else feeling this?
