WG, please resolve the large amount of ping spikes and ping issues we are facing on the European Server.

 

Some of your clients / players pay money towards this game and asking for smooth game play is surely not asking for too much.

 

Really, this is unacceptable.

I did notice that when I was spending tickets in the portal on my laptop, the ping in my garage on my iPad went red for about a minute, then green again after. Other than that, the occasional ping spike doesn’t feel like anything new to me, they’ve always been there.

 

Considering data has to pass through hundreds of thousands of miles of cables or WiFi towers across the world to connect all the 14 players from different countries to the server and each other, it’s inevitable and unavoidable.

The Latency is very bad today. It’s leaping up and down like a kangaroo, and at the best moments is still around twice what I’d normally get.

 

i wonder if it is indeed something to do with the server being prepped for the end of the Blitz Unfair?

Yeah, average pings around 100ms today.

Its not too bad but its far from acceptable.

It does seem to be laggier these days, and I'm fairly certain it's not on my end.

There have been lots of issues over Christmas, WG admitted to this and gave us all 2 days Premium.

 

Today it's so bad the game is unplayable, so we can't benefit from there Premium. Top work WG.

 

Hope it calms down after the Blitz Unfair.

Finding it very bad today and had assumed it was down to my provider. Normally run steady at 50-90 which is fine and playable but had spikes up to 290 today. Shoot and have a half second wondering where the bullet went.

i can image that some sysops at WG are not enjoying their weekend as expected... RU again at 103K 105K107K 109K right now. Not sure what the spikes are like there...:

 

edit: probably reached maximum now (18:15 CET, 17:15 UTC), 109117 people.

Of course. But perhaps to your surprise, you will not see the top max of 109K there, as Socky probably samples the data every 5-10 minutes and since i knew this was coming, i was querying the API every minute or so, to catch the real maximum.

Oh I thought I had problems with my internet connection... Having bad ping already all day, normally I've like 20-30, sometimes a little jump to 50 and that's it. Today my game blocked with a ping of, you don't read that wrong, 3271! Rest of the day 150-200 which isn't totally unplayable but the jumps in the ping are really annoying certainly when you're playing a light tank that can't take hits. Played some horrible games today with my Cromwell B because of this.
