Excessive lag connecting to servers in the US from Hong Kong

Post by ironclaw » Thu Apr 05, 2007 5:32 am

Hello, I'm a new player from Hong Kong. I have a problem with excessive lag connecting to servers in the US. Are there any other players from Asia who knows a good server, or are there any other ways to solve this problem? I often receive excessive lag warnings from the server and I also have a problem with losing packets (up to 25%!). I have a fast internet connection, and I don't normally get problems from my internet connection. So, any solutions? Thanks in advance.

The reason you have such high lag is that servers around here are rather far from Hong Kong. Longer distance for electricity to travel (among other things).

Yes, your best bet would be to find servers in Asia. There may be some in Australia, too. There was some discussion about this a little while ago, search the forums. Your other option is to move to the US. (I just had to.)

Have fun with BZFlag.
