Sudden Low Australian Ping - Eden Only

21 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So there was a post on reddit about all E1 channels except Velia E1 giving Australians and OCE players super low pings. We are talking from the average 180 -200 ping down to 30 - 50. Tried it myself and it does indeed seem to be crazy low ping times. Stuff loads instantly, there is no delay on storage, npcs, looting... it's all just so wonderful. Can any of the CMs comment as to this being a permanent thing you have been experimenting with in the background? Or is this just some type of insane bug with your servers because this needs to be a permanent thing! I've never been more hyped to play now and honestly never thought there would be low pings for this game.

A few of us discovered this and are the reason for that post you linked to.

We're trying to figure out a few things, such as which channels are giving us low ping and if players from other regions are experiencing worse pings on those channels.

Currently, I'm getting 30~ Ping as an Australian to: Balenos E1, Serendia E1, Calpheon E1 and Valencia E1.
All E2 channels have been giving me 200+ while testing different channels.

If this is going to be permanent, I wouldn't mind if it's only one or at most two channels with these servers, but the game feels incredible. 
I've not been this excited to play this game ever. Everything is smooth, everything works how it should and it feels amazing.

Have tried a few channels out on Uno and still getting ~300, if this is something only for Edan I might get a bit upset

How are you checking your pings?

How are you checking your pings?

 task manager > performance > resource monitor > network > find BDO under TCP connections and find the latency column

Awesome thanks. I'll have to check when I get home too. I am on uno but would ditch months of progress and real cash spent for a 50ms server.

Apparently a few people from Orwen have reported low ping.

I've gotten 10+ confirmed players with lower ping on Edan though.

From 160ms to 10-30ms on Edan. I don't see how this is physically possible though. Isn't it just different routing or a proxy to counter DDOS? But how do you explain all the increased performance people are reporting.. D:

When I do an IPLOOKUP when connected to on MediahO1 where I get 50ms (Orwen) I get this:

IP: 184.87.210.165
Country    :Australia  


When I connect to SerendiaO2 where i got 200ms
IP: 209.58.137.207  
Country    :United States  

 

Doing a WHOIS on both IP's

The US IP address is owned by LeaseWeb which is a US based server hosting company. Liley who Daum is renting servers from that run the game

Where as the AU IP address is owned by Akamai which is a global Content delivery provider.

It is difficult to say if Akamai is providing a content proxy which would make no difference to over gaming experience, as the proxy still needs to talk back to the US, or if they are hosting the actual channel which would make a huge difference.

Anyone figured out if there's a sweet spot server post merge for lag in Australia? Or did they remove AKAMAI server caching (to our great disappointment)?

Channels dont effect ping

 

australian ping delay comes from the phyical distance between us and the servers oversea.

Some 3 and 5 channels such as calpheon and serendia are currently giving lower ping

The channels do affect ping but not for the reason you think, some channels have different routing to the NA server cluster due to some Anti-DDOS company they made a contract with, these servers give similar benefits that you would see with a VPN such as reduced packet loss and less congestion the 10-30 ping being displayed is actually the connection to the SEA route before it goes to the NA server, its still a significant improvement in pvp to fight on those channels
