Returning after a long time, ping is INSANE

Recommended Posts

My husband and I decided to give Aion another go, and the ridiculously high ping/rubber banding is proving really discouraging. We've never had an mmo lag this bad for us. Our net is good enough that we can -regularly- play online games with no lag while also streaming on a second monitor with no problem at all. I can't get Aion (Katalam, playing from USA, NC Ping enabled, -nothing else- running on our network) to run at any less than 400-700+ ping.

My question is, is this worth persevering through? Like, is this likely the result of covid traffic and not the norm, or is this just how things are now? I don't wanna keep beating my head against this wall if this is just how the game is now, but in researching the issue I haven't found any recent discussion on the topic.

I think it's your area internet services provider, everyone stay home due to Covid-19 and everyone source of communication, entertainment are now online.

I played on Katalam too and my ping is 40ms (I'm using FO), the only problem I'm getting from Aion is getting log into the game is a pain for somedays, lol. It's just decide to crashed for no reason but when it's on it's stay on until the server forced disconnect me because I stay in game for too long!

My Pc is pretty basic for nowadays standard, keep in mind that this game is 10+ years old so you will do fine with any top of the line PC from 5 to 10 years old PC

Also for current play ability I suggest lots of Memory (Ram) and a Solid State HD

My Current Specs are:

16 GB Ram
Solid State 256 GB for Windows and Game
HD 2 TB (storage mostly music and movies)
Video Card GTX 1060ti Gigabyte
Mother Board MSI B450 Video Pro
Processor Ryzen 3 2200g

Lower FPS @ Siege (100+ Players @ lowest settings) 24 FPS
Highest FPS in a low player zone @ highest Settings 70-110 FPS
Low video lag Spikes, good reaction @ PvP

My only problem specially with last update is LAGGG!! I have been getting ping spikes from 60-80 to 200- 3k Random...

I don't think they're playing the game or reading the forums anymore.

He probably asked because he has the same issue and wanted to know if they found out about it.

did you ever find out why ?

Back in June 4th the lag was for everyone, the servers lagged, they did something tot heir routing and everyone got insane amount of lag. Ping reduction services helped a lot, but the problem was in the server. They seemed to have it fixed by now, but since you still lag a lot it must still create issues.
