    Hello my american friends, many of you will be very familiar of my name, if not allow me introduce myself, my name is Truedon the elitist cunt from the world of EU. I wish to make a return 120 ping or not i feel ROA is the only darkfall heading in the right footsteps. I will most likely bring some EU players to the scene at the moment non of them are interested but i can be very persuasive if i see the game is good (population wise etc)

    So please let me know if the population is looking good enough for me to bother making a new character etc

    Thank you for listening ya boi TD.

    Also you should have a lot less than 120 ping from the UK. I get 90 from Ireland and I'm routed through London.

    There are still a few days left of the free trial, so you can just jump in and see for yourself. Nothing to lose. If you want to see population, Human is supposedly the highest pop race atm. But maybe you would prefer another race to see more humans to kill instead?

    From what I have seen from the few days I have been in game, the population doesn't look bad at all considering this is just beta, and not much advertisement. Also there will be a GM event in the middle of the map this weekend, which should draw players.

    This version is superior in literally every way. The true DF legacy.

    Most crucially it has the real DF community here, people who play the game, create player conflict and content.

    Welcome! Hope you and your friends stay.

    Ping is fine - I get 99-100 to London. Rock steady 90% of the time. Im plaing human male with nice reach and have no issues in meellee atm.

    I get more fights as a solo random playing off hours here in a day than a a week in the few weeks i Played DFND. And decent quality fights vs decent players not just rolling total newbs on DnD.

    Nice. I logged on last Friday, was fun with all the changes.

    Edit: London ping is around 90 bro, if you get anymore where you live you need to stop nicking the Free Wifi at the Bentall Centre and get BT Infinity.

    Population has def picked up. It may be tough on eu times until people finally realize the lower Ping is still not worth dnd.

    It is due to bad inland routing, most likely overloaded hops/nodes. I also ping 90 to the server from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

    Just to give you guys a few examples:

    The distance between NY <> LA is around 2451 miles, roughly 4000km. Just taking LA as a random west coast city, and it seems Circa(I am not sure if you are from the LA area) has more ping from there than both Neilk and me do from Europe.

    The distance between Amsterdam <> Dubai is around 3200 miles, 5000km. I pinged 120 to a random Dubai server I found on the internet.

    The distance between Amsterdam and NY is around 5000km as well, and I am pinging lower than you guys.

    Another fun thing, I pinged a random LA server(http://support.arpnetworks.com/kb/main/ip-address-for-ping-tests) and got 181 ms. That's how it supposed to be.

    Moral of the story? Its not about distance only. Its highly dependable what route you have to the server and if the hops in between are overloaded(what happens most of the time, especially during primetime). You can try to contact the host that owns the hop(often found through a tracert), and see if they can fix it. Or you can contact your own ISP. Another option is VPN and see where that gets you. I once had a faulty hop pretty close by my house and it took my ISP around six months to fix it, sadly.
