Logging in from India and i get 70-90 ping to SG and was getting 100-120 ping to HK. But i was using Kill ping and if you select the asia server it directly checks the ping to SG by default and i was connected to the HK server through one of their HK servers. Did not have time in the morning to tinker around with the settings. In the evening will try to make a custom config and directly ping the HK server and connect through one of the other servers. I assume i can get sub 100 ping that way.

 

TL;DR Not much of an effect for me.

I'd say that the SG server is only down temorarily.  Probably to test the HK server.  The small patch added the HK server, but didn't remove the SG server from the log-in screen.

 

Ping is about 270 in-game from the HK server for me.

Define awful and 10 times worse?

 

Just the max recorded is 999 so if AU is 999 then HK is under 100 and that's perfectly playable.

 

Happy to help.

Lordy, is there a couple of people in WG who are having a competition to see how far they can push?

Ok.  I only looked in forums for anything but couldn't find any announcement, as per usual.

 

Well that takes it to double the ping before 4pm when the ANZ server starts to come to life.

 

Then, if all those Asian country players, who currently use the ANZ server, start using HK for a better ping, then that could see the demise of the ANZ server as being a viable expense for WG.

 

So all that will be left will be HK.  Droves will leave the game in Australia/New Zealand due to the crap ping.

Well we know where your finger is most of the time.  Like the smell of it do you?

As hilarious are your in game banter. I take back all my protests.  Anything that gets the amazing exploding Bob to quit the game like he did Facebook gets my vote.

I reckon if they get the routing right the Eastern seaboard should be better than SG.  Most of the loss was always crossing AU anyway.

Companies like to broadcast good news - see how long they talked about AUS periphery

 

So when they decide to keep quiet until it happens...


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Wow you know the Singapore ISP is full of win when India has lower ping to HK.

I believe they do so. I wonder how far they can push before the player base gives in.

I get 10ms better ping on HK than SG.

 

Genuine Thank-you to WG for shifting the server to a better location.

 

For everyone whining about the ping, maybe talk to your ISP? I get 120ms to HK from Sydney.

Thanks

I do not know if i worded it wrong but i have better ping to Singapore. right now it is 30ms additional to HK when compared to SG, but with changes to config i hope i can get it down to 10-20. in any case not a major improvement. 120 ping is perfectly playable, considering i played with 300 ping when i started (thanks to my ISP!)

Its not hard to fix the routing when the default is Syd > NA/JP > HK instead of Syd > HK

if I'm not mistaken, there are only two ways to route to HK, which is JP or NA. Seems like most of the people her are getting routed to NA first

Singapore to HK 250ms is pretty normal

 

Heck, Singapore to Australia 200ms is normal. Even though Australia to Singapore is slightly more than half of that.

 

That's why Singaporeans typically don't even bother playing outside Singapore and hence seldom complain about ping issues.

I'm being routed via Tokyo, Japan at the moment instead of direct Sydney-HK via Guam. That will change within a day or 2 though
