WoW Patch 3.2.2????

Hi there,
Recently joined Plusnet, just waiting on my line activation. I have switched over from AOL due to complete fail since patch 3.2.2 on World of Warcraft.
Basically what im asking is are any other Plusnet WoW players within the UK experiencing issues since this patch? I know alot of AOL, VM and tiscali players are.
Lag, Dc's etc etc.
My apologies if this is stated somewhere else but i am new to this forum =)
Thanks

Re: WoW Patch 3.2.2????

theres a handful of customers with the 250ms ping, not many thoe and if there was wide spread issue with wow i would expect the forum to crash due to the amount of wow players complaining

Re: WoW Patch 3.2.2????

Yeah, in the last month my ping in WoW has gone from a normal 40ms-100ms (which is acceptable) to a constant 250ms+.  This is on the EU realm, Kul Tiras.

Hopefully this will help improve the situation. I've just had a look through the relevant change control and it would appear that there's some WoW stuff to be tweaked tomorrow morning.

Re: WoW Patch 3.2.2????

test the wow's servers traffic with wireshark and if its not coming back as 0x0a (gaming prioity) then theres a good chance the changes made tomoro will pick the servers traffic up right and improve the latency

Re: WoW Patch 3.2.2????

If you're on Pro you shouldn't really have been affected by any changes that we made on our traffic management platform (although the traffic should be marke as titanium instead of gold).
Is your latency poor consistently?  Do you see the same after rebooting and connecting on a different gateway?

Re: WoW Patch 3.2.2????

Yeah it's the same after rebooting. Just rebooted again, included trace below. It's consistently... not good i would say. By that i mean, when i first load the game it's good (~80ms), but it gradually climbs until the level bugs me and i restart the game, at which point the cycle begins again. It takes about 30 mins to get to ~200 ms, then i restart. Worst i seen is when i went away for a while, came back and it was 312ms. Wireshark says it prioritised correctly.
Havent mentioned it before as it says somewhere to not report what you think is a problem until 7 days have past after you get connected, it's been 5 i think.

I Tried Off Peak-times and i am still getting Lag a little better but no improvement Sad. I tried port-fowarding, Turning my firewall off. Reconnecting my router.  The WoW server is in Paris.
In Other games Like Team fortress 2 i connect to a french server and my ping is 60-90. in Uk servers i Get 50-70 latency
My Spec
Intel Core 2 quad Q6600 (2.4Ghz Clock Speed)
Nvidia Geforce 9800GT SLI (Core Clock 600Mhz) (Memory clock 900MHz) (Shader clock 1500MHz)
3GB Kingston, Samsung Memory (801 (DDR2) MHz)
Motherboard (Vendor NVIDIA) (Version 2.0) (Model NVK84CRB)
DirectX 9.0c
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service pack 3, build 2600
NVIDIA Nforce Networking Controller
Plusnet Package: Unlimited
Do you think the Peer 2 Peer Trafic Management Might of caused this. I was downloading the Patch (1.62GB) and my download from the connection prefences are showing 40.00KB - 120.00KB During Peak Times and then it was 11PM 60.00KB - 200.00KB.  The blizzard downloader uses Bittorrent.
Some Say That WoW Uses Peer 2 Peer in the Game itself but i don't know if this is true or not.
