Multiplayer Game (High Pings)
« on: November 09, 2012, 07:10:54 AM »
Downerup,
I'm on my GF pc and when I go into the Multiplayer Games to choose I notice hat all have high pings (515 or so) I usuall see under 90 here in Chicago. When a game ends my bigman ping is still the same though around 35.

So game play is  laggy is there somthing going on the server end or it on my end (if so any fixes?). The PC here is ATT fibre optic DSL . I did a speed test 3.12 mbps down and .92 up. I think that is fast enough for game play?

This is correct, it's understandable that a computer connecting in Germany to a US server would have some majorly high ping.

3 MBps/1 MBps shouldn't have any issues connecting, although it is a rather weak speed. Other things that use the internet, like a second computer downloading or torrenting, streaming netflix, or stuff like that will make ping spike.

If her computer is the only device using the internet then I'm wagering that it's her computer at fault. Especially if you have no issues on the same connection with your computer. I'd do a sweep on it for spyware/malware and make sure she doesn't have any torrents or downloads going on in the background. Make sure there aren't any other devices using the internet either as that's not really a lot of internet to play around with.

I noticed that I only see the high pings when I open up the game selection page, but while I
m playing my ping is usually around 35 so that is normal even when I'm at home.

Perhaps he processer is just a tad to slow or the connection speed.
