Title: constant high ping for italians only
Post by: Pablito on April 28, 2015, 21:04:12
ok now i have to say it, i am sure its not just an "italian thing" even tho i know our connections suks, but now im sure thats a server issue.
i have normal ping on any other servers around, just on Core i have 100/120 ping everytime.
I see all other italians got the same, for example calimero which is playing always with 100 ping like me.
I always had a bad ping on core 50/60 and i dont care, but i cannot handle it anymore because its 100.. its not fun its like play with Hana from USA!! so if it stay like it is i have to play away from my core mates.

is it possible to take a look and fix it?

This is not a server related issue, if so everyone should have high pings. And that's not the case. It's just bad routing to the server.

Routing, you say? Sounds like a case for Hencho and Ghash

I traced my cable out side my house, but then it goes underground :(
Too much work to see if it goes to eastern europe.

I just told you I did that. It went outside the house and then underground. I think it headed east.

I can confirm that problems are not just from Italy. Im from Croatia on local Vipnet (Vodafone) provider. In my case, beleive it or not, high ping isn't always the reason for lag. So one day ping 56 gives me great game, other day ping 40 - cant hit none, even its obvious pure and clean shots.

I think that reason for high ping on some evenings lies in bad uplinks. Use tracert from command prompt to find out which router is causing higher latency, but so far your provider is the cause, because their international uplinks are 2 busy, or they use cheap uplinks from tier2 or tier3. So if hosted server stays where it is now, probably no other options to choose but complaining to your provider about high latency in international connections (probably you'll achieve nothing) and second/last option is to change your provider (in Croatia on can get better ping results via T-Com or Metronet).

But, I must mention some ingame problems from the beginning (aim/shots), that are not related only to ping on my side, since some players (most of the time they are the same few) are very hard to kill compared to other that can receive shots as normal. These 'very hard to kill players' do have pings from 12 to 44, but I'm guessing its not something to do with ping only. In short, you can see players statistic that is above any other player on server, like 13 players have ratio of 20 kills : 15 killed/died, and 'super player' has statistics of 30 kills : 5 killed/died. So all other players on server got some hard time to shoot them.
To shoot this fella down you can forget about super aim abilities and any other technique proved on other players to be the best, so the only left tech that gives some satisfaction is to spam them with flak/rox and other stuff in massive amounts. And god, that's frustrating and ruins the game.

I don't know are these guys cheating with some kind of NIC packet priority hack or else... maybe they don't do anything, but they are in obvious advanced position compared to other majority. Can something be done (on server) about that?

Its common dizzy.  last 6 to 12 months young "pro" low ping players have been dominating the server. dawkins, our blackie, kron(nork) ect.

so its just tough luck for us  they are faster and have better ping.
but i just apple them like i did with you yesterday

gives me all the satisfaction i need

i know for a fact that we are getting older, and outdated compared to the new breed of players age 15-to 25 all living next door to server.

most of the grew up with iphones computer gaming
and its easy to blame it all on ping, but the fact is most of us are 30/+ years old
and cant keep up annymore.

but ping will always be an issue, and theres really nothing to do with it

look at ganjaman, he moved from italy to england to have lower ping, witch he now does.
but he stil plays shit due to his old age and noobishness in this game.
40+ years just wont do it in this game. even 30+ for that matter

So i apple them feckers  because i know they hate it

play with us on freon2 instead its pw(core members obviously can just enter with no pw)
and play with us ladies.  more fun and less players

THE issue i was starting this topic with is solved apparently, just saying... with solved i mean ping is from 56 to 68-72 for italians.. which is acceptable compared to 100-120 ping i had when i wrote here first time

Diz can be right this game is so much ping dependant..
players like m1no and nOrk are way more skilled than all others current players we have imo.. so its not the connection only..
but i understand the frustration diz, i think u should play also on other servers to have better comparison of what happen on Core servers and to have more satisfaction.. remember Core servers got different gamespeed also

PS is pussyman still looking for cables?

Well I was young once, playin from '99 til now and I know for the fact that I was born with large one but be shure The Thing is still in good shape & working, better than ever before.

And what's wrong with this picture (attach) - besides the only one guy is 2.5x better and maybe 2.5x younger then second one and the rest of 11 old farts? 24 kils is nice, but 6 deaths... I mean this guy is avoiding pure headshots, in realtime, seen with my old eyes. I wish I am young again :)

What you lose in reaction time with age you can gain back many times over by being a sneaky spammy b'stard. At least...that's my approach...

Research confirms that old fucktards like most of us are slowing down (ref: http://star.psy.ohio-state.edu/coglab/People/roger/pdf/psyage01.pdf) , but suggests that reaction time can be kept from slowing down through training. UT2004 might be one way to train ur old poor brain cells. Too bad most of Core have permanent brain damage caused by drinking like irishmen.
