Dealing with high ping
« on: 05-02-2018, 02:02:42 »
I'm from Colombia, my country it's located in the north of South America. All the servers have a ping between 180-230, not impossible to play but certainly hard and unfair, even the Latinoamerica server, which its host it's located in Brazil have 230 ping.

What i can do?

 :-\ sorry, you can't do a lot.

What you can do :
- play with bots
- find a lan party and ask them to play fh2
- rent a server and launch a round with bots, hoping a real person to join

Sad but true. I will ask to my Argentinian buddies if they can create a second server with a host located more in the north.

Looks like all the servers are from Europe, right? An American server would be my salvation.

The bfewaw servers are on the US east coast. But i don't think they are populated at all anymore. Used to at least be some people once a week on there.

Even the Latin American server gives you a high ping? I thought the Latin server was in Argentina which would explain your ping better. If it's in Brazil and your ping is still 200+ it's gotta be your ISP.

You should also be getting a better internet connection to anything in SA compared to 762 which is located in Germany.

762 ping = 180-230
Latin server = 180-230

My internet speed is 5 mbps. I think the problem is with my ISP.

With tweaked internet settings I can play with 245ms ping on latin server. Its not the best but it works
my internet speed is around 50mbps
