Since the last event, I noticed as the number of players shown is 11K+, my ping goes up for about 30%. And there's an obvious lag. Game becomes choppy.

 

WoT Blitz, can you please do something about your NA infrastructure?

 

Thank you

As a smart guy, you know that internet speed is not at all a reflection on latency, or ping, so what is the point of posting your providers advertised connection speed?

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

The suggestion was to use Ethernet which I confirmed. Do you have anything useful or spam as usual?

My best guess is you're getting throttled or the servers are being overloaded :P

 

As for fixing NA, why in the ever living hell would they bother? It's not like this is the second least populated server next to EU and is only populated by poor noobaloids who only get sh*t using mami's wallet.

 

oh wait it is

It's partly the server location, they need to move it to the same location as the PC Central server, because the farther a person is from it, it doesn't matter how good your interweb is.

People on the west coast suffer a 100+ ping which does affect game play.

 

I have noticed though, that when users are up, the lag and vanishing teams gets a lot worse, regardless of the ping, which makes me suspicious the server, or server farms in between, do indeed sometimes get overloaded during peak hours in the evening and late afternoons.

where is the server ?
Panzerwaffe, later also Panzertruppe (German for "Armoured Force", "Armoured Arm" or "Tank Force". Waffe[combat] "arm") refers to a command within the Heer of the GermanWehrmacht, responsible for the affairs of panzer (tank) and motorized forces shortly before and during the Second World War

Have you ran ping plotter during this time of lag?

Ashburn, VA.  Equinix is the hosting datacenter.  This location is often bad for ping since there's a lot of internet choke points for players connecting in from the west.

 

WG has said the server is built for 50k.  I don't know what they do in RU where their server count is several times the NA server count - methinks if we had that many players here the server would really gag on that.  I also think WG should have Blitz connect into a more central location like they've done with PC WoT.

There was some last night on Pingplotter.  Some at the Equinix hops and some on my ISP's hops.

Thanks and please listen/read!

This happens only when number of players is high like 11k last night. It is not a coincidence to have some router point being bad if it happens only when the number of players is this high.

 

I do remember though that last year my ping permanently went up from 60-ish to 80-ish (in September, I was away over the summer) and it never came back. That's another thing to add. But games were still fine.
 

And running traceroute tool, ping is better now than last night (obviously). But the highest is constantly on last 3 nodes named *.fe.core.pw

 

My ISP is like below 1ms, then the exit from the city is 12ms, then the rest of HE routers go up to 70-ish, EQIX router is the same 70, and the final 3 are slightly over 80 - this is NOW, I don't have it from last night, but remember those PWs were over 130ms.


If you don't know what to do, listen and follow.
