    Hey guys, simple question.

    Is it in your plans an EU server at game launch or do I have to forget about this Project right now? :( I am spanish and I have about 50-60 ping in Euro servers and 155+ at american new york one so its not an option for me to play there.

    Thx guys!

    Are you Spanish? You should get around 100 to NY. Kaerion tested with lots of Spanish friends and this was the result.

    ping this server 107.191.96.26

    Yes Neilk, I have got one of the best spanish connections you can get and I am getting this:


    Haciendo ping a 107.191.96.26 con 32 bytes de datos:
    Respuesta desde 107.191.96.26: bytes=32 tiempo=122ms TTL=51
    Respuesta desde 107.191.96.26: bytes=32 tiempo=113ms TTL=52
    Respuesta desde 107.191.96.26: bytes=32 tiempo=114ms TTL=52
    Respuesta desde 107.191.96.26: bytes=32 tiempo=118ms TTL=52

    Estadísticas de ping para 107.191.96.26:
    Paquetes: enviados = 4, recibidos = 4, perdidos = 0
    (0% perdidos),
    Tiempos aproximados de ida y vuelta en milisegundos:
    Mínimo = 113ms, Máximo = 122ms, Media = 116ms


    So I consider 115+ ping (probably more once the server is up) is not acceptable for me to be able to pvp against people with ping around 20.

    I feel like the euro players will be there just to "fill" the server so american guys can smash our heads as they please.

    I understand that If you can only host 1 server you gotta choose one of the sides and you have chosen american side. If the server was in London our ping would be great but once we have to cross the small lake my ping is unplayable vs american people.

    Sadly... one who is down now :<

    The NA <=> EU ratio in DFO (year 2010-2011) was 1 : 0.8 (an ingame GM, ''plutxii'' confirmed this). So the population will probably be very equally spread on here as well, with a small overrepresentation of NA'ers.

    Someone has to end up with a worse ping than others no matter what. London or NY are the two choices based on demographics, and IMO NY is by far the best since almost everyone playing from EU live in Western Europe which can ping relatively low (90-120) to New York. Only Eastern Europeans really get screwed over by this compromise, but they are going to be a small minority no matter what.

    I play from NA and I was around 90-100 ms 24/7...

    There were auzzies who did pretty good too!

    We did tests of NA -> EU, and then EU -> NA, and unfortunately the connection from EU -> NA is better than NA -> EU by 20%-30%. Our connections from NA -> EU SUCK, but the other way around is better somehow.

    We didn't come to this conclusion due to budgeting, we've gone this route specifically as we know we can delivery competitive ping to the vast majority of our players and build a single community under one roof.

    In testing, European latencies have generally been a very stable 80-110 which to all concerned is very neglible and a range EU players will find competitive.

    I had 115ping on NA from 2009-2010 when the servers were located in LA. (i live in eastern canada)

    Its totally playable and in fact when my ping got in cut half when Aventurine moved the server from LA to Chicago... I found the difference reasonably minimal and for awhile I missed having my small "lag shield" as destroyer.

    We will be careful to launch servers slowly to ensure we have the population to fill them. Darkfall requires a high number of active users to fill such a large world so we will only launch more than one server when we are comfortable that a second will fill up.

    Lets make everyone suffer so we can include one minor segment of the gaming population.

    Haaaa, more like smashing 10/10 blondes on the beach kid get a life.

    there were like 5 of us who played in the end because we had 310 ping to the US server at the end of df1.

    Try playing with that and see how long your cry baby ass sticks it out.

    I did, for a year and a half before my ISP gave a shit and fixed whatever they had fucked up, though to be fair it would drop down to 260 from time to time.
