Well, $#!7. I live in Hawaii so my ping will be high AF. Then I think about the poor Australian/New Zealander players who choose to play on US West. We are so screwed.

Yep - I'm in Australia & have been playing for 4 yrs. Started on about 120 ping, then the server split put me up to 210 on West.  Now its averaging 380-420 on central... lagging so bad I can't hit anything.   They should offer free transfer to Asian server again if the ping is going to be this high.  Oddly though, World of Warships on the NA server is giving me a ping of 105....

I want to start off by saying I am not at all tech savvy, But I do have one major concern. I live on long island NY, before the server change I had an average ping of 30ms. After this merge I have around 270ms and lag like crazy. I have a net-gear night hawk router and the second package to my cable provider so I know there is little more i can do to achieve better ping rates. So I guess my question is will the ping eventually go down once the server is up for a little or will i be forced to quit tanks because I can no longer play with all this lag.  The thing that really gets me is that before this switch I could have played on the west and not have lagged so why i'm even lagging when its central is beyond me. 

 

I have 93.97 mbps download

I have 15.93 mbps upload

Eventually yes, it will drop as optimizations are performed. You should still provide WG with pingplotter reports to help them diagnose these issues. There is a survey linked up in the subforum for the server merge that will get you some free stuff in game for providing this information.

I live around 45 minutes from the new server, yet lag worse than when it was farther away. Proof that setting up one junk server and not putting any money into it isn't always a better idea.

They were growing at one point in the past, everything they touched turned to gold because they had a solid game which they were improving and were making good decisions.

 

That was 3 years ago, and here we are.

 

3 years ago is (about) when I joined the forums.  Tales of WoT's imminent demise were old, even then.

Within playing thirty minutes or so I now hit a game killing 999 wall and can't play at all.
This is a server side issue, never had the problem before, nor does it occur in any other game,
My ping was 80-100 normally (on both servers) now it's 150-180 and I'M FROM CST, when I can play one or two matches without the 999 [edited]
 
 
fix your trash.

Playing in California we used to have a ping of 20-30 ms on USWest.  Since the switch to USCentral, the ping is typically ~ 75 ms and gets up to well over 100 ms on bad nights.

I am a slightly below average player so it hasn't affected me that much.  My son, however has lighting quick reflexes and has seen his play level decline a fair bit.  He had a recent WN8 of almost 3700 and has seen it fall to 3150 since the server merge.  Given that he is only 16 and played only 15k battles in 2 years 9 months, he was trending to a potential professional level.  Now the game has become so frustrating he is going to quit.  Since his education and non-video game activities will be far more important to his success in life than this game, I suppose I should thank WG for the server change.  It was necessary for them, and overall best for my son.

The Central Server has been an upgrade.

It probably has been for some, but I highly doubt it has been for most.

"Most", haven't posted here, or given their opinion.

Works great for me. Low pings and no lag or warping. Wish they would have done it sooner!

I didn't make a definitive statement, but it's logical that when the average player distance from the server increases, more players will see a decline in performance than an upgrade.

 

You, on the other hand, have no basis to definitively state the central server has been an upgrade, simply because it's better for you.

I've seen a small drop in ping, was 25-35 on the east, now its 35-60.  The new issue is it will spike up to 150-999 and start to fluctuate wildly for enough time to make the game unplayable.  Not a common occurrence, but a new one that happens enough to piss me off, because I can't finish the game when its doing that.

 

My internet is 10/100, best i can get here in Deliverance, NC, and I have 2 internet lines coming into the house, this one is strictly for gaming, only one computer/console running at the time, and all hard wired with the router sitting less than 2 feet from the computers and 10 feet from the consoles. Speed test, 23 ping, 71 download, 6 upload using the Rocky Mount server.  This computer runs WOT, Armored Warfare, Warthunder and Crossout, the 4 programs that are on it.  I5 6700, 16gigs ram, evga 1050 ti, more than enough to run these programs at 100+ fps with graphics maxed.

 

Another issue tht popped up after the last update is that as you play, the FPS will drop.  Usually after 10-20 games it'll go from 105-95, then another 15 games, to 85, etc.  it'll end up being unplayably laggy at 35-50 fps and I'll have to close the program.  Which doesn't always work, when I double click the Icon, a pop-up will sometimes appear stating that WOT is already running, even though there are no active programs in the Task Manager.  So then I have to restart the computer.  This also has occured on my Origin rig and my laptop, so it's not computer specific.

What is the average distance for the average player from the central server?  What was their ping, latency, lag, and overall performance, and where did you get the information you compiled?   Where is the information you're using to come to the conclusion that the central server was an upgrade only for "some", and where is your information that leads you to believe that it hasn't been an upgrade for "most".

"Probably" and "highly doubt" aren't  words used in definitive statements.  If English isn't your native language I understand.  If not you're just yet another Wot player who goes out of their way to be antagonistic.

I hate when people suggest this, so I will just ask, have you used that Ping Plotter program to trace the route and see if maybe there is something along the way screwing up performance?

You're way, way too oversensitive.  My first post in this thread didn't even quote you.  You over reacted.  Now you've painted yourself into a corner with your opinions.
