Lag?

whats with the lag in the servers today? It seems to be happening frequently. When I check my ping its in the 300 - 900 area! Its usually 50! This occurrence happens give or take every 5 - 10 minutes! I wondering if anyone was experiencing this same issue? This is mainly happening on the DOM server.


Thanks

It is happening on all 3 servers -- we bought some new lag recently, it produces nice yellow triangles on the net-graph!

There is an Easter special offer on lag, we got 5 buckets for the price of 3, good value don't you think?

Maybe we should switch this topic to the humor category since you guys don't want to talk serious.

Servers are lagging because 3 COD dedicated are running from dual core. we used to have quad core for this but, lack of donations caused us to downgrade server. a couple hundred dollars in donations could put us back to quad core server. When they all get full u get LAG and messed up timing AIRSTRIKES OFF. So more donations equals less lag. AND I AM NOT JOKING AROUND.

I was wondering if their is a ping limit set on the cod4 servers? If their is it needs to be set lower! People are playing cod4 with a ping of 500-700! I can't even spectate them for cheating b/c they have so much lag and I know it's not because of my computer. Plus it's slows the server down tremendously and it creates unenjoyable gameplay. You can't even shoot the guy b/c he's lagging across the screen, it's funny at first... But then it just gets annoying. It could get some people mad but it could be a wake up call to get a router/Internet service upgrade. Also what's the max amount of people that can play on a given server? I think I heard around 20. Is that right?

COD servers are set to 44 seats per server. I'm not sure if there's a ping restriction, but I've seen restrictions on other servers (even Q3) so it's probably specifiable. I'm not into COD but I'm sure dyn can fill you in more.

I think that the more hacks there are in game, the more lag that is generated.
I've seen after an admin comes in game and cleans up or when there are no hacks the server is fine.

It is when I can't hit them because they lag to much. if their ping is super high doesn't that affect other people trying to kill him?

No, high ping produces no lag on server or with players whatsoever. Connection errors, genuine or artificial -- when packets are dropped on purpose -- can make players jump from one point to another and make them harder to kill. It is a form of cheating, a bit retarded, but some people use it occasionally.

Totally true... Hacks greatly affect how much lag their is in a server. Every time I play theirs always someone complaining about how many cheaters their are in the server and how much lag their is b/c of them. And you guys say you don't need anymore admins.... That's your call...
I mean what do I care if my favorite server gets bogged down with hackers every time I go on... But noooooo you guys have it totally under control... Not to be disrespectful =) .

High pingers are not a problem, really. There was some theory how it may *sometimes* affect low pingers, but this was in Quake 1 days, and Q1 had totally different network code. Later QW (QuakeWorld) resolved those issues, and this was in 1997/1998. Q2 and Q3 use new network code, each client is independent from others, and COD4 is using heavily modified Q3 network code. Only problem can be players dropping packets, which is not related to ping.

There is 888 limit, just to keep really lagged people away.

no actually we have had servers in europe and lag was not really an issue unless you had a poor internet connection. i never noticed a difference.
