Please set official servers to kick higher than 100 ping



  • Default for autokick over 100 would be absurd.

    I am behind cable delivering way higher pings compared to my friends with DSL, they tend to be around 40 to 60 on good servers where I usually get around 90 to 110.

    I am not happy with it, but I manage to be the best player of us (all of us usually beeing better players on most servers). Autokick would instantly make gaming with my friends impossible.



  • Very bad idea. At best I can get a 60-90 range but temporary spikes exceeding 100 happen all the time when bandwidth gets used at other locations in the household. I’m sure many people are in the same boat. Also I don’t think slower connections become unpredictable unless they approach 300 and rest assured that the person with the slow connection is at a bigger disadvantage because they pretty much lose control over their actions.



  • If you are losing to someone with only 100 ping, then you are not a very good player :s.



  • @Mike_Effing_Jones:

    Watching people teleport around the map and have attacks after you block the animation and just the massive desync is frustrating beyond belief.

    If you have higher than 100 ping to a server, don’t join it. Skill is taken out of the equation at that point and any kills or deaths you accrue are simply because no one knows what the fuck is going on

    teleporters usually mean terrible internet connection / fps lol

    Only case i’ve seen this is on those with 400 + ping and spamming “LAG !!!” then going back down to 20-30 ping :P

    It’s not as bad as Age of Chivalry and if they did add that cap they’d lose their EU English Players, ONLY reason I don’t play EU servers is because hardly anyone speaks English, UK needs out of the EU xD

    Also the seeing people teleport can usually mean the server is bad, some of the multiplay servers lag constantly, could also be your connection :P



  • Unfortunately for me I get between 80-120 on official servers. Private servers I see many below 60, so it kinda sucks that the servers I am suppose to moderate, give me the worse ping. Need more west coast servers. And if there are a lot, then idk why official servers ping is so high.

    Yes! More west coast servers!

    I consistently get at least 100 ping no matter what the server I go to, so I’d go for more around 200 ping for any autokicks if needed.

    I think there needs to be a function in place, that keeps track of how long a person is over 200 ping. Because at times I can get a spike in ping, which causes 200+ ping, then 20 seconds later returns to normal. So I’d hate to see a random spike, disconnect me from the game :stab:

    Lol I agree, because it happens to me too… Psh, us poor west coasters. In AoC, I remember there was a warning (I think, don’t quote me on this), that let you know your ping was too high on this particular server and you’d be kicked shortly. So yes, there definitely needs to be a timer and not an “auto as soon as you reach 200 you’re kicked” thingy.

    Everyone deserves to play the game. There are plenty of private servers out there.

    Exactly, there are many servers that you probably won’t have so much ping on :D



  • doesn’t matter. Everybody constantly lags on officials anyway even with apperent low pings. Not to mention the lagspike-freezes that constantly drop you off cliffs and stuff.
    No wonder ppl complain about “ghost swings” and a broken block system… it’s just due to the bad perfomance of official servers. All of this never happens on other servers in your region.

    Doesn’t necessarily have to aplly for everyone, but stuff like arrows flying through bodies, taking damage right before windup of the sec swing, and unparry-able regular slow slashes don’t happen on other servers for me and I know many ppl experience the same.

    It must be much higher than 100 ping to cause teleporting. I have ping around 120-150, but my connection is stable enough to play without problems you mention. Only time I had teleporting issue was a lag spike and I wasn’t the only one having it (half of a players had it).

    PS You’ll have to kick a lot of people, because many have ping above 100.



  • I’d like for it to at least be the default ping limit setting in the server browser.



  • The devs have repeatedly stated that the Official Servers will never have a ping limit on them.



  • The official servers have been pretty bad with ping this past month or so. i used to get 30-50 ping but now regularly clock in 100-150. No idea why, but it’s spoiling the experience for many. It’s not just me either. The ping used to be ~100 on average, now it’s ~200



  • I know it’s fun and easy to make comments about “lol u died to a lagger?” but that’s not what this is about.

    Seeing players swinging wildly and having their hits so far out of sync with the animation is annoying

    Players on either team carelessly killing anyone due to lag

    Destroys the immersion

    From what I understand also puts a drain on the server, that’s what people have told me.

    And overall it’s just not FUN.



  • Who doesn’t hate facing a team of laggers? But the fact of the matter is, not all people with high ping are bouncing all over the place. Some of their animations work just fine. It’s the people skipping all over the place that are ruining the experience for others. Last night I was in a server where a guy with a ping of like 40 was skipping every few seconds (Yes 40… not 400.) And he was killing guys at much higher levels with just mashing lmb. I don’t know if this guy just had a bad computer and good internet or maybe some kind of hack… but someone on my team finally just switched over and started tking the guy… and I wasn’t against that. lol



  • I don’t understand why people don’t filter by ping as the first thing in the server browser. It’s so insanely critical in this game to have a good ping.

    Although, a high ping actually gives you an offensive advantage due to what you describe. Animations don’t sync with the real damage trail so you get hit after parrying what you think is the weapon. But it’s a serious defensive disadvantage. That’s why new players who aggressively attack and have high pings will often be high on the scoreboards because it’s quite hard to deal with them.



  • 300+ or bust.



  • yea i occasionally have 5min lagspikes where my ping goes from 30 to 300. I can literally slash through lines of enemys with my archer’s short sword, just because I glitch out of every attack and bypass every block. High ping can really become an advantage in this game.
