Is it just too much to expect that the servers we play on be reliable enough not to drop packets? Pingplotter shows no loss between me and the game servers. Fix YOUR system please.

I got hit with that this morning, but I'm rural and bad weather rolling in, so assume it is my ISP having issues.

That's what I check for first, but several runs of PingPlotter shows ZERO packet loss between myself and the game server (heck, trace route shows it's only one hop from my router - 24ms ping). It's their server.

I was playing the other day in my Typhoon and the packet loss was wretched.

High ping is one thing - I run 150-250 on the regular, but packet loss kills the whole game for everyone.

I sure wish WG would pop in and let us know that they're aware of the issue and what, if anything, they're doing to resolve it.  It does seem to me that there is an influx of new (maybe returning as well) players, but having the servers unable to support the population will kill that right quick, IMO.

WG generally applies a patch and then takes the weekend off which allows the player base to slam them with tickets/complaints

they've been aware for years but they did a cost analysis

the analysis told them that you're not worthy of the extra cost

so, the attitude is that the borscht may be horrible but...

it's good enough for you

now shut up

:popcorn:

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Have you tried getting one of those ring doorbell things.

Not that it would stop packet loss but at least you would have video to post

Actually just tried 3 games with ridiculous latency/loss. It is pretty wild looking, you  may/may not have shot something, you teleport across areas, then you are a lawn dart and get stuck in spawn.

Just had a game with packet loss and ping up and down the chart.   Invisible planes, teleporting planes, invincible planes.   Wasn't just me either.   I scored 2K personal points in my P-38F, and 1K of that was just sticking around to the end.   High score player was only 7K.  

 

Seriously, why is WG so frigging silent on this?

The answer to any question starting, "Why don't they—" is almost always, "Money".

That's right. Packet loss so you buy op premium plane with high turn and accuracy.

Uhhh... you're overdoing the tinfoil dude.

holy crap the packet loss the last 2 nights after the restart has been horrible.. others ingame having the same issue.. what's the point of having a daily restart when the servers run WORSE after.

Another game with packet loss.  I put enough rounds into a red Corsair to shoot him down 3 times with no effect.  Invisible planes, teleporting planes, the whole works.

 

Where is, repeat, where is Wargaming's response?  The world wonders.

There are ENOUGH new players to justify this easy and relatively inexpensive fix if they GAS.  :izmena:

Where has the positivity gone? And don't speak for me. My client is fine.
