5,351 Miles Away from Eve

Finally got Internet access at the new place and have setup a instance of Cacti on the Raspberry Pi to monitor network performance. Ping times for Tranquility are coming in around 158 ms, which is acceptable given the 5,351 mile (8,611 km) distance from the US West Coast to the servers in London.


I would love to hear from any other US West Coast people about their gaming experience given this latency.

    Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
    Reply from bytes=32 time=169ms TTL=242
    Reply from bytes=32 time=164ms TTL=242
    Reply from bytes=32 time=163ms TTL=242
    Reply from bytes=32 time=171ms TTL=242

    Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 163ms, Maximum = 171ms, Average = 166ms

    Your results seem right on the ISK. I’ve a 30GB Comcast connection. You should be fine.

    I live in SoCal and the ping doesn’t really matter as the server runs on 1 second ticks.

      320ms in Sydney. This is where it starts to make you miss ticks, I can definitely feel the difference

  3. Havoc928 is right. All mmogs have a delay, so Clients and Server have plenty of time to sync data.
