THIS IS BS EA!
They probably changed the coding in the criteria for what equals five bars now....ping 160 and less = 5 bars etc.



Thats some pish poor criteria then!

Is this true?
We take the IP adress of THIS EUROPE SERVER [bf3stats.com] , (xbox)
Take the IP adress ( 159.153.80.210 ) and put it in this website : http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm [geobytes.com]
I played on that europe server yesterday. well.....they call it a europe server. its east coast USA now, with a europe tag in the server information.

That's messed up, but did all European servers switch?

I heard the rumors for days and I did some ip traceroutes and stuff today and it is actualy true,

The battlefield europe servers , previously located in The Netherlands , all got migrated to the USA server park, Probably to reduce costs.
In my opinion it is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS , that the servers WE PAY FOR , as server renters and as normal bf3 customer, get moved to a place that adds another 100 m/s ping to the already high ping we have !

WTF EA ....at least we finally know what the reason is for not having our ping in the scoreboard : it will contain EXTREME numbers because of the geographical distance !

What used to be EU servers now end up in either California or Virginia! (Richmond?).

/ End of rant.

Its very sad that we have been fighting our case for ping in the scoreboard for such a long time and then we find this out today.

At least now we know why our voices were going unanswered.

i bet this is why the aussie servers were crashing before christmas, they would have tested it on us first, shameful behaviour indeed.

Maybe, but even now I join a euro server & get 5 bars, I join an east US server & get 4 bars, But in theory they're the same location = ping meter is fabricated to deceive us Euro players.

Judging by this i might as well just play on all USA servers and lag the hell out of them, because that is what it amounts to

Okay, I gotcha now. Didn't know you could see East servers as 4 bars. I was just thinking of a way they could pull something like that off.

I measured the ping on another server that was supposed be in the US from my PC.
I got an average ping of 72 ms.
That's not good but it's not exactly US, right?

Nope, since they got the Porsche license locked to any other dev or publisher.
You wouldn't steal a handbag. You wouldn't steal a car. You wouldn't steal a baby. You wouldn't shoot a policeman. And then steal his helmet. You wouldn't go to the toilet in his helmet. And then send it to the policeman's grieving widow. And then steal it again!

Hey, you know what ?

Go to pingtest.net , zoom out, and do a pingtest on the San Fransisco server, California, US. it is on the west-coast.

post the result here okay ? if you get 72 ms ping you will get a cookie.

Ok, I opened CMD, did a ping on the address that you posted and got a 67 ms ping. Not too bad (from Romania, East Europe).

Pingtest.net however, shows a 197 ms ping to a LA based location.
San Francisco shows 207 ms.
