  • Something seems wrong today many of us 160 pings and laggy like every game so hmmmmm?

    Completely turn off your console, meaning, don't put it in rest mode.

    You should also try rebooting your router, especially if you haven't done it in a few months.

    From there you will be sure it isn't you.

    here is an example of what i had to play with over the weekend. been like this since HUT moved to dedicated servers but this weekend (Feb 9 & 10) was by far the worse i ever had and i'm done with this game. it's one thing to force HUT player online to complete the daily objectives but to ask to win a game in the event objectives is a joke.

    even when i've had a good connection it won't last a minute and the controller delay makes it impossible to play anyway. i enjoy playing the CPU but play afk on most online games just to complete it and get the objective. but expecting us to win a game is a joke and i'm cashing out.

    North America is large, where would central NA be? In Canada? or in the USA?

    Although this can't hurt, but for a decade I've been complaining about input delay/latency because I live in Southern USA not too far from the Gulf of Mexico.

    Will this new server help me? or not really?

    The "Central" server is near Columbus, Ohio.
  • EA, I just want to say thank you very much for the new European servers! I'm in Finland, and whenever we get a game on the new nearest server (which is in Sweden I think?), the game is more responsive than ever and EASHL is more fun than before. My only gripe is that we're not on the nearest server in every game so sometimes we'll have those sweet ultra-low pings and sometimes not. Maybe this is some kind of capacity issue.
  • Yes it's odd that some games go old server in Ireland even with games between two Finnish teams. But most games are on the Swedish server as they should.
  • thank you EA - I'm now completely done with this game. Since several days now constant input lag, makes no fun any longer playing only guys from Scandinavia with zero ping.

    It's an absolute shame how a once working game was completely destroyed by not properly working dedicated servers, roll-back of tuner and whatelse. Used to play this game until summer on a daily basis, now I'm done already mid February thanks to constant frustration. What a waste of money!
  • Allegedly Swedish servers that is, EA hasn't confirmed it's there have they?

    Decent EASHL club games today in terms of lag, but we had two games not counting: in the first one we all had number 19 on our backs from our perspective, other players showed right numbers. Couldn't see my player name, and the end screen was just one page. In the next game only one of us had the same issue, but the game didn't count either. So we stopped playing for today.
  • We had same thing, one player said his player had reverted to default(face, number etc). But everyone else saw him with correct number, face ... That game ended up not counting. At the end menu there was no "next game" option, only "quit game", which returned us to main menu instead of dressing room. Next game was against same opponent and that worked correctly and was counted to stats.
  • Yeah, that's the one. I recall encountering this before - not sure if it was during NHL18 though?
  • Anyone been having ping problems lately? On east i used to always get 9-10 or 11 ping but lately i've been getting 14-15 ping and game feels really delayed. Also, anyone knows why game felt perfect on 9 and 10 ping and delayed when i had 11 ping? Almost felt like it was a west game when i had 11 ping.
  • I think you broke the servers EA SPORTS

    Sorry if I sound frustrated but come on @WainGretSki you honestly think I’d post this before doing all of that first bro... come on bud ..... been online gaming for over 20 years now
  • I live in Texas and haven't noticed a difference. I just wish the Central server was a bit more... Central.

    Maybe we need a Southern server?

    What part of Texas are you in?

    I'm in the panhandle
  • Anthem early access on the same servers? Thats my best guess. Also had drop in games not counting for a while this weekend.

    I understand, but it's not like I know what you have been doing for 20 years.

    It was just a suggestion and takes all of 4 seconds to read. Sorry if I offended you, wasn't my intention.

    Not at all dude no worries didn’t mean to come across in a harmful wayjust frustrating cause it was working so good for about a week and now so many people I know dropping out of games and it’s making it hard to enjoy clubs right now! Everyone’s getting those spikes and it drops them! One guy was spiking 1800ms throughout a whole game finally hit 2300 and it dropped him. Have had some of us order new Ethernet cables and we all have hardwired connections with great isp’s. My tests to the PS4 network are amazing download and upload speeds so it’s not my end! No other game is doing this to us. Just NHL.. so I know it’s EA’s end!
