I'm an australian player, and ive noticed recently that i lag far, far more in australian servers than american/UK ones.

Its near constant spikes, constant lag, and im not exaggerating, its at least once every minute or so, it just doesnt make sense unless these servers suck somehow.

By comparison, i go to an american server. and its all well and dandy (aside from bag ping, but that comes with the territory).
O.O

That's kind of odd; I can't say I've experienced it though, as I don't play anymore, and even when I did, I only played on UK/American servers.

Well the thing is, when your competing against enemy miners, ping matters.

I can almost always steal peoples iron if im in an australian server, and kick them out of the spot, but in an american one i almost always lose. So i generally prefer australian servers, if it werent for the crazy epic annoying LAG!!!

And its not only me, others on the world are getting it as well.

I have no idea because all I did was DG in world 117 in the past few days, and that world lags for everyone.

It seems to me that runescape has been lagging for weeks.

If you click on them they hatch or grow up faster and look awesomer!!!
87.5% of all statistics are made up on the spot. If you're one of the 42% of statistics that doesn't, copy and paste this into your sig. In addition, 126.324% of the previous statement does not make sense.

Yep theres definately a trend here.

Less ping = More spikes.

More ping = less spikes.

Seems like a bit of an oxymoron but i swear thats what happening.

I thought that any lag to do with dungeoneering was only in demonhelm.

I'm in the Netherlands and all servers in Europe have around a 16-18 ping for me.
American servers get about 180-200 ping.
And Australian/New Zealand servers 300-340 ping.

Everything like it should be to be honest. The further away the higher ping.
Also I'm not experiencing lag on European servers.

Yes, i do realize.

I also realize that the less ping i have, the more responsive the game is in general, but it also means i have more spikes. (Though, thats probably cause australian servers blow)

You know what a spike is, right?
O.O
