    Good stuff glad you are getting a decent ping.

    We won't have the resources to do two servers (unfortunately) and we would rather not fracture the community.

    Trying to keep people on a decent ping is one of the top priorities :)

    Australians pinged 260-300 to Chicago. I imagine it will be 100% unplayable on NY server now.

    Though to be fair I already can't consider 250 ping playable but 350-400 seems completely unreasonable now.

    I support the idea of one server, since its a pain if people switch servers "cause there is more pvp on NA2 or something like that.
    One community, one server.
    Also: the NA players need every advantage they can get^^ (just kidding).

    @ Forgotten: i see what you did there <3

    Appearently the first year it was 1:0.8 na/eu. Its honestly not that big of a difference but different enough to put to server in NA and not EU. West NA/Central screws over pretty much everyone from eu with the exception of germany, netherlands and the UK.

    Yeah we're completely fucked.
    This has actually completely fucked us over to the point that it's pretty much unplayable.

    This is worst case for us. I'll be on 350+
    No point at all

    If you are in AU, post your ping, I would like to see a traceroute as well if possible.

    Server in Chicago would be WORSE than anything else, due to it being landlocked and not having the direct undersea cable.

    I had 190 when servers were Chicago based. 290-310 when it was Florida based.

    The undersea cables in Florida head to Brazil and the Caribbean mostly. The cables from Australia head to India then cross through Africa and through France before traversing the Atlantic to New York.

    In Chicago, it would have to go through New York first.

    I get 77 average in the UK

    To be fair that is acceptable - It could be a lot worse and this is a sort of best for the majority kind of deals. I don't think that anyone is going to gripe about the ping come launch.

    If people were getting like 150's plus I could understand the bitching (I do feel sorry to the guys is Australia as your ping will suck but again I don't see a way everyone can win)

    93ms from the UK is unacceptable to me, but atm using 3rd world ADSL, no cable in my area :( hopefully be better by the time a server is up

    DFO, like any good FPS absolutely has to have low pings, I remember playing with 30 ping, and with 90 ping on NA. the difference cannot be compared. I'll question the skills/motives of ANYone claiming high pings 'are just fine'

    if theres no sight of an EU server in the short term, or I cant get <60ping with decent cable, that's going to put a big downer on the whole project for me :(

    Dude, thats what's I played with to the EU server from Ireland along with most other Irish players. Anything around 100 is negligible for DFO.

    You will see there is nothing to worry about and it's the price we all have to pay for a single populated server.
