Mine seems fine. Try a tracert to login.worldoftanks.asia and see where the delay is happening.

Thanks already did and routing seems fine, latency seems to be between Perth and Singapore. Usually I get about the same ping as for Aussie server but now its more.  Oh well.

Ironically the routing to the Sydney server is stuffed for me. Getting around 70% PL at 202.10.14.201 (which is where TPG routes to AAPT) so having to play on SG.

I've been getting very laggy and jerky performance on the Sydney server in the last day or so. Ping is fine, but there's definitely packet loss.

Yeah a few have reported that. Between that and all the crashes it's become a pretty shitty experience.

Had a chat with a chap from Optus while checking their Status page . Popup chat come on . Thought why not ask and see what happens . Turns out they play WOT so had an idea of what I was talking about . Got me to do a tracert to Optus.com . Hops 8 through to 28 all timed out . Destination unreachable . Who would have thunk it . Tech coming out to check the Node 2 blocks down .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

I tried the SG server and it was fine. Ping around 120-130 as usual and no packet loss. Looks like a better option than the Sydney server for now.

Cheer up the new Perth Singapore cable will be up and running soon. They say completion and live date sometime in July. 40 terrabytes a second with 4 pairs, so that should really be something. In shallower waters the cable is encased in armor and is buried by plow under the sea bed. Just the thing to discourage sharks.

The ship is approaching Singapore, here is the map  :)  Not far to go now.

Nice one thanks!

 

'Encased in armour' quite appropriate for us.

They really are burying the cable deep in Singapore harbour this tim around. No wonder the boat is traveling so slowly at the final approaches.

 

Cable in the Java Sea stretch will be buried by a 40 tonne plough in a trench up to four metres below the sea bed to avoid fishing nets and anchors which also provides protection from most earthquake or rock fall damage. A 10km section of the cable leading into Singapore Harbour will be buried at a depth of 10 metres, with extra armouring on segments where the cable reaches across an underwater chasm.

 

 

The tricky bit will be the shallower section from Singapore to Christmas Island, with the cable there laid by the Ile de Ré over the course of about 100 days.

“The sea is shallower and it is also highly tidal. That could be a problem because cables can move in tidal waters. Over time they can rub against rocks and suffer from cuts. The other issue is there are many other cables and pipelines in the area. Each time the ship encounters one of these the cable has to be brought up from the bottom of the sea,” he says. 

As well as the frequent typhoons in the area, there are also ‘sand pirates’ – contractors who illegally scoop sand from the sea bed to order.

 

“The ASC represents the latest submarine cable technology, delivering superior reliability and much-needed diversity to an important route. This milestone means we’re one step closer to bringing customers an alternative to the fragile Sea-Me-We 3 system which is nearing end of life,” said Mick Simmons, Interim CEO of Vocus Group. 

 

Then next year the new indigo cable will travel along the perth singapore route, so that will be 2 modern cable networks up and running

 

The old cable system that we are currently relying on is pretty dated and slow by todays standards here are some figures

 

SEA-ME-WE3 or South-East Asia - Middle East - Western Europe 3 is an optical submarine telecommunications cable linking those regions and is the longest in the world, completed in late 2000. It is led by France Telecomand China Telecom, and is administered by Singtel, a telecommunications operator owned by the Government of Singapore. The Consortium is formed by 92 other investors from the telecom industry. It was commissioned in March 2000.

It is 39,000 kilometres (24,000 mi) in length[1] and uses Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology with Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) transmission to increase capacity and enhance the quality of the signal, especially over long distances (this cable stretches from North Germany to Australia and Japan).

According to the cable system network administrator's website, the system capacity has been upgraded several times. The cable system itself has two fibre pairs, each carrying (as of May 2007) 48 wavelengths of 10 Gbit/s.[2]

In December 2009, the 4th 10G Upgrade increased WDM channels from 48 to 64 per fibre pair.[3] [4]

On 1 Jan 2015, the 5th Capacity Expansion was distributed to all the owners. Data capacity of the submarine network is increased significantly with 100G technologie

Cable type Fibre-optic
Construction beginning 1997
Construction finished 2000
Design capacity 0.02 Tbit/s (1999)
0.96 Tbit/s (2007)
1.28 Tbit/s (2009)
4.6 Tbit/s (2015)
Lit capacity 2.3 Tbit/s per pair (two fibre pairs)
Owner(s) 92 Party Consortium (5 Suppliers)

 

So with this cable being twenty years old and 4.6 Tbits/s as against ASC cables minimum of 40 tbits/sec we will see a massive drop in latency when the new cable comes online soon. Then the design allows up to 200 300 tbits/sec as new technology becomes available.

 

So our games for Aus and New Zealand should become more playable on the Singapore server with less lag. Hopefully the Aus server will still be available as a backup if there are any technology failures.

Been trying to work out what the the Ile de re has been doing out in the middle of the Singapore channel over the last week. lots of zig zags and going around in circles. Was thinking thats a 'funny way to lay a cable". Then the light went on, they are preparing  shunting the other cables aside so they can bury the ASC cable. The last couple of days the ploughing has recommenced at .02 - .5 knots they have done 10 nautical miles so far and must just about t up to where they left off the last buried segment. They didn't cut the cable just a matter of swapping the cable from the top of the other cables to below them so they can bury it. So not long now. The ETA for the Ile de re to arrive in Singapore is 15/07/2018.

Doesn't matter - the SG server is gone. The WG sharks ate it...

But Southerner is it all in vain, wot Asia server has just moved from Singapore to Hong Kong which is now giving me about 300 ping (vs 60 via Singapore previously), but 4.5k people playing now.  Aussie server is about 80 ping but there are 111 people playing.

 

This could be it for wot for me as I play mainly out of peak hours.  Just waited over 4 mins but still no game....

Yeah WOT changed the server to hong kong with just 5 days left untill the asc cable made landfall in Singapore. This may be the end of me as well.
