EU servers a catastrophe

  • no, it fits the pictures. Check the peering db's on the net. All ISPs oversell and most people play at the same times. Also the times where non playing people stream videos. You think some lag on a map is bad? Try to get a video conference going betwen 9 and 10am.

    very bad ping in eu can barely do pvp :( one minute its 100 the other its 330

  • It's getting ridiculous. Full AB meta map doing tarnished traitor - no skill lag, just fps drop. Early morning EU Dragonfall - 3 people doing escort to the camps - lag spikes 3+ seconds, if I'm not playing something tanky - dead. My internet is absolutely stable, tested connection to German servers on speedtest - ping 49ms, stop ignoring this issue - it's a server side problem.

    Seems to be gettiung worse. In Vabbi I was getting skill lag spikes every few seconds

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    I've had the issue several days ago. Not to mention several disconnects on the new map yesterday.

    Why can't we get an official response on this? Are they even looking into it? One can only hope.

    Give us some UK, PL, CZ or SK servers. No more laggy DE servers (Frankfurt).

    you do realize that AWS peering at Frankfurt is fatter than PLs, UKs, SKs overall peering?

    I bet it is not AWS nor Frankfurt. My money is on ISP overselling bandwidht (which they all did) now biting them in the kitten hard.

    MY employer does sell online courses. Before COVID hit, no problems at all. But the moment everyone started to work from home, customers were lagging out and disconnecting all the time.

    Maybe, just MAYBE it isn't ANET's or Amazon's fault?

    My bet is, its Anet fault.

    When I revisited several S4 maps for the collections for Vision, a lot of this maps were often laggy with lag spike of several seconds. And according to the map chat, lots other players experienced the same on the maps at the same time. When I switched to core maps, I had no noticiable lag. When I jumped back to S4 maps, it was again laggy. When I ran the tool "WinMTR" to the IP of the map at the same time I had a clean path without any packet loss or unusal delay on the way.

    I do not say that all S4 maps have large lag all the time. But in my experience there was a lot of lag for long durations in S4 maps but not so much in other maps.

    My guess is: Anet broke the servers/systems/software for the S4 maps or put these map-systems on cheaper Amazon servers that do not have enough ressource to handle the task and that did not scale well.

    Who knows. Perhaps it's related to some backend work related to the expansion. Such things have occurred before during development, but at least the told us about it.

    I can live with the lag spikes, but it's the complete lack of response or acknowledgement that does my head in. Communication is the easiest thing in the World to get right, yet it is repeatedly a problem for so many companies - incl Anet.

  • opening a ticket i was told they can't fix it yet just offer work arounds, and by posting a request to network admins here on the forum they should eventually fix it. as far as the testing i've done on my end everything goes smoothly up to the Amazon node in ITALY then from there to the main server things get lost/can't be traced. It's helped forcing the game to use HTTPS the ip that my games connects to in maps is different and the "lag" is almost fixed.

    I am not saying its anyones fault. If this is anything like the hosting of my previous work it could be that Anet buys specific CPU/Memory each month, and this is not enough for the game to be smooth all the time everywhere. It is however good enough for Anet. And Amazon will not scale up for free if they see performance issues, they will probably report to Anet but scaling up can cost a lot of money.

    What I do know is that it is not my ISP...

  • This is horrendous.

    No comment from ArenaNet?

    How do you do that?

  • At present the TP is currently broken, with the usual "can't connect to login server" BS.

    Hey ashantara, theres a good explanation in the wiki -- https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Command_line_arguments

    but basically make a new shortcut to gw2 and add this argument

    -clientport 443

    As they say in the wiki this CAN cause issues with some ISP but in my case it made the game connect me to a different AWS node (it gave PoF maps a different connection ip) and it helped a LOT LOT with the lag.

    Well me and a friend both tried that, and that changed nothing to the issue. Still horrendous lags. Its scandalous, nothing less, to have such matters last for so long with NO answer from the staff on the subject. Unacceptable.

    Not helped me either.
