Huge lag spikes and poor world latency?
Couple of things you can try.
My ISP gave me this link to use to check my upload and download speeds at any given time:
This can at least rule out your processor etc ...
Another simple test you can try is to ping somewhere out there such as ...
open a cmd window (start run)
> ping www.netscape.com
You will be blocked at some point as you get real close to netscape home base but at least you can see where the bottleneck is.
Hope this is of some use to you.
According to some forums the Baelgun server is physically located in the Chicago area, although realm time is west coast ... Go figure. Naturally depending on where you reside in the country depends on the network path you take to get to Baelgun. We have a bunch from the East coast in guild but none have been complaining about latency, then again, it all depends on the path you take and most are slightly different than the next one unless you are in the same geographical general area.
Hope it gets better, at least it's not your rig!
You have to pay 7.5 bucks a month, which is silly but it works if you find the game unplayable.
I'll be sure to pass along the work around .. Thanks Mass!
