    Please keep this thread about server performance and the influence of yesterday's adjustments. Calling each other out or saying the game is dead, is not going to help us in our effort to improve our server.

    Every spell and bow shot seems to finally register properly for me and without the noticeable delay I had previously. Whatever you did.... don't change it xD

    Registration is still really good, but i've noticed some delay when farming mobs today.

    Ping is much more stable. Weapon transitions are better, I still hope you make them instant with the 0 paperdoll lock but it is much better. Keep going and great work so far!

    I've been keeping track of server performance with battlespikes. I throw 5 battle spikes, one straight down, and then another angled one cross-hair width up, and so on.

    Before, when the server had delay, you'd have to angle your spike like stormblast. Now, this is from the perspective of a player with very low ping, so this might not be true for everyone, but aiming directly down was the most effective form of hopping for me(immediately following the server changes)

    First day: 1st spike was the most effective. I tried it throughout the day, and it was consistent.
    Today: 3rd spike is now the most effective. So there is some degradation, but I don't know if this is due to the server being up for a long time, more players being logged in, or more tweaking being done on the server.

    Ping was steady with a jitter of 2-3 the entire time.

    So after saying how impressive the performance has been to UK over the last weeks, it took a turn for the worse yesterday.

    Getting very wild ping now all day, ranging around from 98-250 ping.

    Jinxed myself lol.

    I feel that the server stability since the fix has been better than the days of Darkfall 1.

    I notice that when looting Graves it opens quicker, and when switching weapons... however, I've been double and triple casting like crazy

    I logged in a few days ago and had 40 ping for the first time ever on this server. Problem is it would spike to up to 40 ping more constantly so I would just get small ping spike hitches and it threw off my gameplay completely, either it was the ping spikes or the server isn't anymore responsive than it was before with weapon swaps.

    First of all, i got 100-110 ping on DnD. I got 40 ping on ROA. I was talking about DnD.

    I've never uninstalled DnD before, but i did it today because the grind is worse than ROA's even if there's less spells/skills that we need to bring up at 50-75.

    Beside, if i uninstall, it doesn't mean i will never reinstall. I've spent all week uninstalling and reinstalling ROA. this game is making me crazy!!

    I've decided to play once a week until the grind on character settles down or until the next patch.
    In the meantime, i'm playing other games.

    I think they are still working on it as my ping is pretty stable at 110, which is an improvement over 140 earlier and 130 on DFO (Chicago). Thanks BPG, good work, I was almost considering playing DND with 40 ping as it's so smooth compared to what it was like.

    Ping is still ok, but getting server delays again. Lots of ghost swings and double casting still. :(
