Whatever you did with nerworks in last updates, undo it



  • I’ve seen it happen a few times on TO 24p official servers, where everyone’s ping shot up to 200+ and then defending team stopped respawning. But it seems somewhat rare and most of my play sessions are pretty normal as usual.



  • It worked fine for me just not long ago, why would it change now? Everything else works fine, every other online game I tried works ok but chivalry. I saw peoples ping shoot up in servers I was at and saw people asking if anyone else spikes so it’s not just exclusive to me problem. There been some topics since last update that have people report their game crash and some ask if anyone else have performance issues.
    I do join official servers and some other ones, all close to me. I joined them before and never had any lag issues. I will check what you guys suggested but honestly I already know it wont help. I had similar issue in one other game few years back. Where an update made my ping horrible if I joined any partys while every other game worked fine. The issues was fixed a few months after when they had more updates.



  • I, too, have had this issue. Being moderately conversant in the state of my computer and connection, I can testify that it’s not an issue on my end.

    However, I have not had this issue on all servers. My observation suggests it’s not related to consecutive playtime nor server population, but just to certain servers. Most of the DW servers are like this to a small degree, and about 60% of the CMW servers I’ve visited recently are like this. When I find a good server, I try to stick with it for a while. =3



  • If it’s a case of everyone’s ping is fine in the server, then suddenly after playing for sometime, everyone’s ping shoots up to 200-300ms (often then inducing a team, usually agatha, to be unable to spawn) then that would be a bug that’s already been reported (common on TO maps) and has been around long before the last patch.

    However I had assumed from your previous post that this was just yourself, rather than evryone in the server.



  • It’s not just me, I see other people pings shoot up too, I just did not had that before the few updates ago.



  • @MonkeyFiend:

    a bug that’s already been reported (common on TO maps)

    No sir, not this. Just my ping, or possibly FPS, as the screen freezes for a second or three. And it’s not just in TO maps; it happens in CDW all the time.



  • It could just well be the case of new players (troll players) joining wrong servers, especially with the current sale. It is amazing how much carnage one persons 500+ ping can cause on a heavily loaded server.

    He is dead on. On an already heavly loaded server, all it takes is one noob douche bag that joins a crowded server not paying attention to his ping. Even a 200+ ping joining can crush a server if it is not very stable to begin with specially if he has friends.



  • Hence why long awaited ping display in Kick Reason pop up is needed or having ping limits on servers. 3 warnings if their ping is above X, 4th warning = kick banned for X minutes.

    I don’t understand TB’s mind at all on this issue.

    In a game that relies HEAVILY on a persons latency, why they wouldn’t have these sorts of options in the first place?

    Ping in Kick Reason should have been in this game LONG ago.

    Agreed but they rely on server admins to use an external server admin client, Big Brother Bot, which I could never get it to work properly or installed on my rented servers. You have to be a programmer to even figure it out. Funny how they dont even run BBB on their own servers.



  • It really wouldn’t take much effort and time to pop in a simple logic check of player pings averaged over 1 min, after 1 min of the map loading. If somones ping is 200+, or better yet a variable set by the server admin in an ini file orsomething, Kick em. Too easy and really should be a staple of most modern games.



  • It’s getting so annoying that I am thinking of just not playing at all. Every single server lag spikes yet I log into other online game to check and it works fine with much larger servers. Honestly if there were any updates on net just roll that back, no one complained about that kinda lag back then so it wont hurt anyone but sure would help people that have lag now.

    Problem is its only affecting you.

    I mean I got a couple of lag outs today when I first joined a server and that was about it. I hadn’t lagged out in months. Though my computer booted really slowly and it took ages to do anything so its was probably more to do with me than the game.



  • Can barely play this game at night because the singapore servers start filling up with retarded, bleary-eyed americans, all of whom have at least 300 ping.

    Same for Australian and NZ servers. I shift+tab to see where these people are from. About half of them are from the states. And then there’s the rest of the world.

    They don’t even bloody know what ping is.



  • I mention a post by me long ago about the fact the states players get the best of both peak times, in which I suggested
    ping limiting the servers. The funny thing is when I drifted onto a states server a few times in the early hours a kick was swiftly
    call voted to kick me. The EU and UK is just a soft touch tbh. limit pings max 160? I suggest. The states won’t hesitate at all to boot you off and almost instantly. Toughen up EU !



  • It’s Torn Banner’s tradition to break something new with every patch.



  • @lemonater47:

    Nope. It’s hitting me, too. I liked the state of the servers a few months back, but not today.



  • The issue is fixed for me with this update.

    I meant small minority.
