Server Migration (New York)

Recommended Posts

The game server has been moved from MIAMI to NEW YORK.

This means 20-30ms lower pings for everyone in Europe.

Enjoy.





 

Only read below this point if you are a nerd.

If you want to measure exactly how your ping has changed, try this:

  • In windows, run cmd.exe. You can find it if you search in your start menu.
  • Enter 'ping miami.nanotrasen.se'. See what average it gives.
  • Enter 'ping newyork.nanotrasen.se'. See what average it gives.
  • The difference between the first and second average is how your ping has changed.

 

An example of doing this:

C:\Windows\System32> ping miami.nanotrasen.se

Pinging miami.nanotrasen.se [199.127.60.40] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 199.127.60.40: bytes=32 time=112ms TTL=116

C:\Windows\System32> ping 185.150.190.156

Pinging 185.150.190.156 with 32 bytes of data:

More performance improvements have been made to the new server. This should resolve issues with movement/etc being slow, as well as prevent server-side cache issues. If you notice any remaining problems with the new server, please contact me about them.

Thanks for your feedback thus far, it helped me troubleshoot and make these performance upgrades
