Thanks for your feedback!

I found something that may or may not be related to yalls server. Several times while playing I have chosen my side and then got taken to a screen where I could see the players and the map but couldn't go to the character select screen at all. Only solution to this that I have found tha works is to force a shutdown of the game. None of the buttoms would work at all, but when I come back everything is fine.
  I ahven't really seen this on any other servers seeing as I play here 90% of the time, so not sure if it is limited to here or if it is a known glitch.

Type "spectate" in the console, that should fix it. That's a common bug that happens.

Myself and a few of my friends have been noticing times of increased ping (usually 30 or 40 higher then our normal ping). I'll try to get a time and a traceroute next time it happens.

Was the lag noticeable when playing?

For my friend it was a very big problem as he mains sniper. Last night he didn't even bother playing due to his ping being 150.

I only have high ping when I first connect, then after it's done loading and syncing, it stays normal.

Re: High Pings

This week, my ping has tripled.  Went from 32 to 96, steady.

No idea why, but really annoying.

I have checked in on Steam chat with some other Victoria regulars, we all have 84-112 on various providers.  Jean-Luc lives 10 minutes from me and we both are rocking 94 and 96 pings.  I called my ISP and asked if anything was going on in the greater victoria area, they said no and no scheduled maintenance.

I demand answers.

I just had to log off the server because its behaving like the last time i made a comment about it.  I'm seeing lost packets but ping remains stable at around 20ms for me.  Its around 3:20pm Pacific time.  Its been good for the last few days but its acting up again.

Thank you.

Thanks for the follow up.

I believe we've fixed the problem. Let me know if it's still happening.
