    All Battle/Practice Servers moved to New York

    As seen by the google map I think it justifies moving to New York instead Texas. There is so many (including I) that are European that actually could benefit from a New York Based server. As some people might see their pings on west cost jump 20 or 30, European should also see a lower in Ping to equal out.

    Re: All Battle/Practice Servers moved to New York

    I can think of several reasons not to:
    A there arn't any MyIS BF2 servers in NY (as far as I can tell the ony East coast BF2 servers are in Ashburn,VA and I have no idea where on the internet network this would add lag so that would be an unknown unless someone from MYIS could give numbers).
    B you actually give everyone who is west of the Easten time zone in the US a worse ping, not just those on the west cost.
    C the Google map just shows all visitors and not just actual members so that is a inaccurate measurement of player location.

    If you wanted to move the server first you would have to do a player survey to get locations to see even if it makes sense to. Then run a test to see what pings and playability is like. Finially yod do another survey to see if the community wants to keep the new location or go back to the old location. At least that is how I would do it.
    If you didn't die trying then you didn't try hard enough.

    Re: All Battle/Practice Servers moved to New York

    Tests would be good, and yes there is better ping times to East Coast server then Mid West/West Coast (Due to Europe being connected via optical fibre systems to US in the North East United States.), and thats not just BF2, thats every game. Even 20,30 40 ms shaved off ping is great. I think tests would be good to conduct.

    21CW BF2 servers were located near NY and they were MyIS and they had much better ping. Nuff said. Thanks for your patience !

    Re: All Battle/Practice Servers moved to New York

    If we do a pole of numbers (after we give some time for people to sign up of course) and >50% of people were east coast or east of there I would have 0 problem moving the servers, even if my ping would go up. BTW JB I looked up the locations for BF2 MYIS servers and the only east coast one that showed up was in Ashburn,VA so either you can no longer get BF2 servers in NY or they arn't listed as available to the general public but we could still get them.

    How many kiwis are there lmao in compared to European players? I think that honestly, more players benefit East coast and Europeans combined with better pings compared to the ping times left alone in Texas. I wish we had a total of what we had per section of the world.

    Is the current showing, yes you have to register for the map its not just visitors. Now I know everyone hasn't put their location but even with more sign ups onto that post would probably still add more Europeans and East Coasters.

    Re: All Battle/Practice Servers moved to New York

    IMO that is a poor way to do it as it would include old members not playing and not include people currently playing who haven't signed up, the map I was looking at showed all visitors to the site (http://bfewaw.com/content.php?r=309-world-at-war upper right corner). I think the best way to do it would be to start a poll think the best way to do it is if we could actually get an IP address of a MYIS server in the same area that we would be moving to, if we changed, and let everyone ping it to see which one they got better pings to and then run a pool with 3 options, one vote for each server and them one for a change less than 10ms (or whatever you think is insignificant). That way your geographical location doesn't matter at all, only your internet location. If we cant get IP addresses then we could just do it by a vote of what you think would be a better location for you, again with the 3 votes.

    Re: All Battle/Practice Servers moved to New York

    Good, idea
    I don't know why but my ping raised after the movement of bfewaw to the myIS page. first i had a max average of 140 ping, now i my ping sets around 175 or higher with peaks of 250 or more (at least 30 sec) during battle. That's why i join tankers because there i don't lag that much.

    WaW is NOT using a MyIS Server to play on. So you getting a higher ping must be an coincidence.

    Don't Troll in this thread. There isn't like 5 Euros playing in WaW. There are a LOT more. Moving servers would help more people then hurt others.

    Not true. There are more NA players here than Euros. Not tons more but counting just the Allied sign ups it is about 2/3 NA players. I am assuming that the axis sign ups are about the same.

    I know how all the euros complain of playing with a ping of 150-250. Try playing with a ping of 1500 (that's 1.5 seconds). I had to for a week once back in 2004 when one of the routers on the internet was giving me that ping for about a week (it really pissed me off). I was actually killing people with a ping of 1500 (although not many). I was playing Desert Combat over at 21CW at the time.

    This is being looked into. Points have been made and we actually know about them already.
