Latency Issues

Through out all of my beta testing (4 months of it) and up until just about 30 minutes ago, I have average 64 ms Latency with no noticeable server lag at all. All of a sudden, 30 minutes ago, that latency jumped to well over 20k and I was DC'ed. Since then, this has been very unstable. I just watched it jump to 11k and has not dropped below 157.

This is making it near unplayable due to the extreme lag. I do not know if this is planet related or not but I am currently on Alderaan. I did see that some others in general chat (the few of us there as it is) are also seeing the same issues.

Not sure if this is being seen on BW's side or if they are even aware of it. Hopefully it gets smoothed back out though.

Thanks.

I am having the exact same problem.

Out of curiosity, do you have comcast?

None of my guild mates are experiencing the lag and my connection to other things is fine, so it may be some sort of routing issue.

I saw this happen in beta, it usually means the servers need a restart which they should be getting before the 20th anyway.

I do indeed have comcast. I have yet to test those speeds but get 31 mbps download. (just to give a reference point of the speeds I get)

I am in the Nashville area and have never seen latency like this before. With any game or anything I do for that matter.

Same exact problem here.

Started a couple of hours ago.

I also use Comcast as my IP.

If you speed test your service it doesn't register any issues, so it wouldn't surprise me if Comcast is purposely reducing bandwidth.

Hopefully we can get an official response some time soon.
