Europa does not have europa.owo.com address anymore. Its now 213.71.25.83 (as for today).

I can't ping it to test how it good or bad compared to old europa.owo.com (159.153.156.138)

To anyone who wonder, I got this address running "netstat -an" without and with running UO client.

This makes sense, just returned after a little break and I've turned into the dreaded Laaaaaaaaaaag monster.

with a continual ping im hitting about 40-50ms then jumps to 200ms-300ms for about 5 pings every so often...

In the UK? Are you seriously? I don't believe that.

My old ping in Russia 65, new ping 61.
Certain ISPs *cough* BT *cough* Love to cap speeds, I've had weeks of 80-100ms connections from the UK. :(

As long as you don't download a million movies a month or similar silly things, ring em up and insist they turn off the interleaving (sp?) as that can help a lot.

Also, you may find this useful :)

BBC News - Ofcom wants to ban misleading broadband speed ads
I usually run afoul of Virgin's bandwidth limiting any time Steam has a big sale on. Although it only ever seems to cap "speed" (to about 2 Kilobits/s, about 256 Kilobytes/s), without impacting latency.

Can't speak for other ISP though, who may also deprioritise packets (Virgin apparently always prioritise gaming/voip/video streaming over other traffic, even if the rate is capped).

Has anyone figured out where the severs were relocated to?
They used to be in Canary Wharf, London, so such a dramatic change in ping probably put them very elsewhere.
Like... Dortmund...

Well, i pinged around 20-24ms on old shard, i'm now pinging around 47-52ms.

Still not bad though, but i surely felt the transition between the two shards...

My ping seems to have settled now at around 60ish, has anyone else seen a change for the better?
