Chinese players will choose San Jose or Seattle.Dallas seems ok as well.Washington DC is the worst one.If servers move to San jose or Seattle,our network latency will decrease 50-100ms.It wont make a big difference though.Our ping will still be above 200 even 300ms.However,being able to play on hybrid or demise with a ping around 300,for many of us ,is very attractive and encouraging.
An offtopic question for Ryan.How many chinese players,i mean players from China,Hongkong and Taiwan,are active on hybrid and demise now? I play on demise.According to my feeling,every night(Beijing time) i log in,at least 15+ chinese players i am famliar with are online.Someone among us says the number should be beyond 40.Ryan,would you please give me an exact number to fufill my curiosity?;)
 
I'm not going to try to start an argument with you Sirkah, but many of us on the west coast had Texas with an ok ping then had to deal with 125 ping on the east coast and we just manned up and dealt with it FOR YEARS. I think imo it's about time we got the low ping instead of it always being the east coast who have lower numbers apparently. If you can't deal with a 20 ping difference or whatever it is, then it means you were only good because you had a significant advantage in ping.

I've only been around couple weeks and working skills/dying but thought I'd put in what I got, if it matters, lol

I'm on west coast and have tried command prompt ping couple times, prior results were all in range of 150-175 (prob cause kid streaming tv show):
(first couple times I did this, got 25% packet loss with Texas and Dallas and got 100% packet loss with Houston)

latest results:

Texas: 64.39.8.163 > 117
Dallas: 74.86.116.210 > 117
Houston: 173.193.70.98 > 121
San Jose: 50.23.64.58 > 71
Washington DC: 208.43.102.250 > 128
Seattle: 67.228.112.250 > 48

I like what you did here Ryan, we do need to consider all parties on this decision. I am willing to lose 20-30 ping if it means my Korean and Aussie friends will gain 20-30 or even 100 ping.. They are a LARGE part of the field pvp on this server. To be honest several of them can compete 1v1 as well, No way in hell I could compete 1v1 with 250-350 ping. I can only imagine how much their skill level could possibly increase with 100 ping decrease. No matter where you put the servers us as Americans are still going to Ping better than they (Asians and Aussies Europeans) do. So people who are voting, consider what is best for the server and not just yourself.

I would really like to see the server stay in Ohio, but DC would be best for me

This shards lag is what caused me stop playing as much. Would this new server get rid of the lag a lot of us have been experiencing?

Why are there 5 west coast choices and only 1 east coast choice? The majority of people in the USA live on the east side, same with Canada.

Texas=53
Dallas=50
Houston=63
San Jose=87
WashingtonDC=35 <-- winner (no surprise there)
Seattle=79

I knew some players from China [guild CN] years ago. They liked this game. But, what were they doing in the game? Mainly poker. Why? The connection was too bad and could not pvp or even pvm at all. The only thing they could do is poker and wait for the better connection. Each time, I had 300-400ms ping, they might have 400-700ms ping.

For the Taiwanese [guild HoT], I didn't chat with them much. So, not sure about their ping.

For the Hongkonger [guild HKGamers. @[email protected]], they are no longer active. So it is hard to estimate how many are still active.

Hi guys. I live in Europe so i pinged all of them. Maybe that will give you a clue how to help out foreign guys to play on hybrid. Washington has the most stable ping about 99-100. Rest is about 130 plus up to 190 in San Jose. So if you want to help us out to still play on hybrid i would be greateful if we can pick Washington DC. And that is my vote as well

Ryan what will be coming of the hybrid server? Are you going to look into making uo fun again or looking into making it better for the people here?

dude, can u not see how idiotic these "questions" are? I'm sure not all 8100 of ur posts are so fucking stupid. If they are, that's a shit-ton of bullshit. Please accept my assessment as devoid of bias and let it be known that I have a delete button too ;)
