    A few people, not only me, have problems with high ms since May 2023. Will this ever be fixed?
    Normally my ms was 70 now I have to play with 170-200+.

    I just start to play again yestesrday and only trying to enter to a city had 200 ping when my ping allways was 20-40ms.

    They prolly changed server provider...a cheaper one ^^ I figure I live pretty close to it, since it was 5-10ms and even my ping increased a little to 17-20ms. Allot less drastic than yours, but I doubt it ever gets fixed for you and others with this problem.

    What is the impact of that ping range? I'm in the US, but playing on Grimmag ... 170-200 is my normal ping range, and I don't experience lag at that rate.

    When the server is busy or otherwise compromised, and my ping rises to 275 or higher, then I do see lag, map loading problems, etc. But not at 200ms or below.

    I don’t deny that playing at up to 200ms is possible, but after playing at 70ms it’s unpleasant. And it’s funny that your ping from the US is the +- same as mine on the same server. I believe this was a mistake by the devs when they tried to fix error 36 last year.

    I'm not sure what my ping rate is, but lately I'll hit a huge lag spike where the game will freeze up for 20-30 seconds. It seems random from what I can tell. I'm on the East Coast, USA & playing on Agathon.

    You can go into Settings and turn on the "Latency indicator". It will give you your ping on the lower right, under the essences.
