But the ping must be 800+ i guess

yep its not a good solution..ping to high. Forget about it.

I have satellite at my house because I'm even farther from civilization than Huche. It works great for day to day stuff, but gaming is an exercise in futility. My normal pings are between 1500 and 2500. In theory an 800 ping may be possible, but in real life I don't think a satellite user will ever see it. I have played GuildWars successfully, but whenever I have gone questing with a group, I am always like a mile behind them and the battles are over before I have a chance to catch up.

Huche - can your design business not justify a T-1 ??? :wink: :lol: :roll: :P
I should take some screens of the dialup from my house... I'd have to make the graph bigger...

My shots were of my wireless, actually. My dialup ones were solid green... er, yellow... er, green. Ah heck. Gray.

Well, if I sold all my computers and hocked my camera.... I could probably afford a T1 for about 43 minutes or so! :D

Eureka! The pieces of the puzzle now fit my amigos.

I think our last posts were right on target. I did not yet get a chance to talk to my ISP tech, but coincidentally they shutdown service a couple days ago to replace/upgrade hardware in the region (in towers, not individual homes). I can not believe the difference! My ping even improved a teensy bit (a teensy, teensy bit), but the biggest issue has been for the most part fixed. The throughput and consistency of the connection has hugely improved. Now it plays, basically exactly like I think a 230ping connection should - all I feel is the delay, no other crap. It's not perfect and once every couple minutes starts to choke and bog down (for about 8 or 10 sec). I have to pause to let it pass (totally unplayable), but invariably Shitkicker greets me face to face, LOL.

Now, on the EU server, my lagometer normally looks like this: Image

And the bog down episodes look like what I've had before: Image


I hopped on the servers today and it felt a lot better, so I'm happy. :D 'Course now I can't blame my connection! Albeit a high ping is a handicap, it's at least playable. Now it's just lack of skill.


Thanks Gunte, Ringo, Dragon, and Ciego for all the help and ideas.

Mucho gracias! :wink:

Phhhtt... I didn't help much, I just told you to stop whining about it... ;-) But thanks all the same!
