TERA PC - General Discussion: LATAM? Eme don't give a [filtered]
It's 2018 Tera has 6 YO on EnMasse and the lag spikes only increase. The amount of LATAM players is pretty Significant and we play at 220ms in empty hours... That's complitely dumb. We do not stand a chance against people with low ping on PvP and the PvE, i play as lancer and i have bad moments trying to defend some mechanincs, sometimes i need to predict what the boss gonna do next. There's must be a way to fix this lag. EME must look for everyone. This game could be MUCH BIGGER... Optimizing graphics and lower the LATAM ping. You guys can do it, but actualy you just don't want, cuz ur already earning Money from this so just don't give a really [filtered] about LATAMs

There's someone in my guild who plays Valk Pvp at 260ms avg. And get's several kills per FWC/CS game. Sometimes double digits.

Legit git gud

Well we have 2 options here
1: Gear carryed and spamming [filtered] around
2: Proxy
im in latam (chile) and i have 140ms (200 prime time) without proxy obviously.
There are people from the UK, Sweden, and Germany in my guild. They have anywhere from 200-300 ms ping.

They all have +7-9 stormcry and and clear RKHM and RRHM regularly, and Harrowhold every week.

Maybe you're just bad.

eu people can't have ping that high
At my highest ping was at 160 when I had terrible internet. Right now it's 120 and I'm east-south eu. I know players from the uk that had sub 100 ping because of fiber, usually UK has like 110-130 ping.
Also, those guildies are probably using proxy if their dps is in the competitive range.

Telling others to get good because they have bad ping is incredibly rude and ignorant. Playing with bad ping in tera is sluggish and feels cancerous and you can in no way perform as well as low ping players can. Hell, at 50+ ping some ping dependent classes start to break. At 150+ main chains will have troubles canceling and linking. Telling high ping people "just git gud xd" is just... yikes.

Everyone i remember from these places have like 140-150 ping.

@CornishRex Some classes can deal with certain ping, not 300 like he said ofc lol
You don't know much about how the internet works if you think they can do anything that will make significant changes to your ping

Well, EME caters to NA players. Their servers are located in NA, so obviously when you play OUTSIDE of NA you'll be getting higher ping.
I mean, yeah it sucks, but unless they open up server in LATAM you won't experience lower ping.

As for the ping spikes, they do have to fix those.
Expecting EME to "fix the lag" when you're halfway across the world is like expecting a Pizza Hut in Chicago to maintain every single road from Chile to Illinois.

Best-case, they can alert backbone providers of routing issues, but there's just so many potential issues along the way that are completely out of their control.

Really, outside of some new no latency technology that hasn't been invented yet, you simply can't completely overcome distance.

My advice to you is Get a better ISP CAUSE i live way further than you from the servers and my ping fluctuates between 80 100ms stop blame EME .
And this is going to get worse becuase the end of net neutrality.

Let's see what will happen.
TERA PC - General Discussion#14 Zoknahal06/14/2018, 03:57 PM
RIP net neutrality. Literally one of the worse things that will happen on 2018.

Viva America....

The problem is also that most Latam. players don't really spend money directly on the game, they buy EMP from others, mainly from US players, or simply buy stuff from the broker; there are tons of latinamerican players, that's for sure, but I can almost bet the income from those players isn't big enough to justify a server hosted in latinamerican territory, the fact that no company has tried to host Tera for Central and Southamerica might be a indicator of it not being viable right now, I can remember a few MMOs hosted in Latam. that ended closing their servers at some point.

However, many things can affect your ping, someone playing from Mexico can get under 100 ping in some areas, but having a ping over 200 means you're having problems with your ISP or you're way too far from the servers.

shut up you dont have any idea of what you're talking about. its impossible to 'git gud' when the game is [filtered] frozen and everything is delayed. your friend probably uses proxy or some [filtered]. its not possible to play tera atm at 260ms with jitter and latency going crazy. so honestly, shove your low ping privilege up your [filtered] and shut the [filtered] up

maybe they use 3rd party programs
try to play having their ping and then tell people they're bad xd
TERA PC - General Discussion#18 tisnotme06/15/2018, 01:18 AM
I play from Australia with ping higher than 300 with no 3rd party or proxy and i cope ....
TERA PC - General Discussion#19 kubitoid06/15/2018, 06:35 AM
i played from russia w/o any 3rd pt soft and always had 160-180ms ping. but packets loss and thus random ping spikes with zayo was very significant and annoying

i'm spanish and i know South America have the worst internet service plus people don't want to pay,and on top of that they complain.Many told me they steal wifi from neighbors.So figures...ignore this people because this cancer with them is not gonna end.Thanks god i live in Canada.

Strange.. my current house is in the west coast of the states and my average is 110-120 and normal server lag brings it to a good 150. I'm pretty jealous if you are located in EU and get 120ms XD (I pay 60 bucks a month for actual fast down/upload speeds as well)
