dont like rezzing an old forum but the drop outs and lag spikes are killing the wife and i during raids, so i want to do something about it... couple of questions... also side note we ahve fios 50/20 so that should be our issue and all computers have the leatrix fix installed on them....
do you need mulitple accounts for 2 ppl or just the 1....
anyone with experiece from west coast have positive reviews of this?
just annoying i can't get under 100 ping on zang but servers close to me are barely above 15ms....
iirc, Zang is in the Boston complex so getting below 100 will be tough to do from the west coast, what's your average ping? Routing issues usually cause overall latency to go up, but it seems like you are more prone to the "lag spike" kind of stuff. Unless the cause of the spike is a bad (over taxed) router along your traceroute, chances are that reducethelag.com won't help.
yeah it is more the lagg spikes that are driving me crazy... ill stand there and watching my insta cast dots not even fire off for like 5 secs and can still here all the vent stuff and such going on just fine, then it catches up, usually with me standing in something bad =(
I live in West Coast and Zangamarsh is located in New York city as datacenter. My latnecy usually around 113ms on world. Sometimes I do get over 200ms depending my provider. I checked with my end, router, modem, etc everything looks good. If I ever get over 200ms, it always my provider who causing the lags.
I did test out with another server as West Coast datacenter, it showing me under 40ms from home and world latency. All I can say in my end depending where you live, provider, your modem(s), router(s), computer or datacenter location.
Shiftiez, I know you live in west coast. I try two different providers this year one is AT$T DSL and Time Warner. I try with DSL first, my latency showing me over 100ms as usually. So I switched to Time Warner cable, 10ms lower than my previous provider. I just can't make my latency lower than 80ms since I'm aware that Zangarmarsh server is located in New York datacenter.
It all depend on geographic location compared to your server's database can be very relevant. Not all servers are based in one area. There are four locations in North America; New York, Chicago, LA, and Phoenix. If you live in somewhere in North-East coast, you will get better latency if you're on a NY server than if you played on a LA server. Your latency will be worse
In TN my latency is usually around 50/50, but last night was especially bad during the phase 2 seed collape aoe. I was just praying we didn't get an up-close engulfing flame or I would have likely been another dead rogue.
