Very bad pings right now, usually 25 now 450?

EDITED :

I have very bad pings right now in the last half hour. In fact they ahev been quite poor all night.

On my usual Il2/FB server I ping 25, tonight its been between 200 and 250, just now reaching 380-450 and I have been kicked over and over.

Anyone else experiencing problems or is it just me pls?

Well as that’s the ‘packets dropped’ graph it could mean that all the Peer to Peer users have got fed up with slow speeds and gone to bed, there is something good on the TV, the Bronze traffic has been given more bandwidth or the ‘graphical’ software was written by the same people who produced the VMBU package.

Seriously though there was word that the Bronze traffic was going to be given more bandwidth. This would be reflected by a sudden reduction in ‘packets dropped’.

The other graphs are fine and I am having no problems.

My pings on halo were pretty good a short while ago.

Although the server itself is and always is rubbish as everyone else has pings between 200 - 1000.

So you couldn't tell much difference anyway Cheesy

PIng to the server. ALL the game servers all over the world are the same with pings around 300-400ms higher than usual, so its not a server probelm.

There are other things that affect games, such as packet loss but I am no expert on this so can only confirm that the pings I get outside of the PN network are similar to yours.

John, you are on gateway pte-ag1 so your pings can/will be different to users on pte-ag2 Sad
