I had to patch BDO, but after checking, I live in the east coast as well and I'm getting around 80-100 ping.

I have decently good internet with 15mbps up and ~170mbps down

Minnesotan here. a week ago, and for most of BDO life span on NA, I was getting 70-120 Ping with the server being on the west coast. right now I'm getting 20-30-40 ping Fishing in Hiedal.

Different channels will give different pings... Servers still in same shit location... Channels giving low pings can still lag like the other channels.

server still in cali. Can confirm cuz i play from, NYC and LA.

(LA perfect connection, NYC shit connection, both verizon fios)

LA connection is like being 50 ap stronger

NYC connection is likely suddenly -3 attack speed/cast speed/movement speed/animation cancel speed AND -50% accuracy.

 Fact is: the closer u are to the server, the easier you have it, people underestimate this constantly. I'd even dare say that connection gives u a bigger advantage than gear/level.


Connection>level>gear.

lol yeah thats how it feels to play from here vs other players
AUS/NZ 159-198ms, used to be 50ms channel 1, 120-140ms other channels.
same ping to KR, playing in KR doesnt have this issue.
also NZ has a direct cable to the server location which is weird because it feels more like being routed via canada & back to server at times. (literally had experiance with it doing that via VPN)

My last test was on Valencia 4. I tried Serendia 3 and got between 30-60. Definitely a significant difference.

Interesting how channel has this large of an impact. Best guess is it would have to do with server load.

I live in Southern California. Normally my latency is around 34 ms, but today its at 140 ms. Still in the same channel I always play on (velia 2). Not really sure why it is so high today.

The server locations are on the west coast, should be smooth for everybody there.  Mine are between 100 and 200; east coast of Canada.  Some channels may be different then others, but if you login to the same one everyday you'll be able to see if it changed or not.  Mine didn't.
