Guide: A guide how to check your ping

Recommended Posts

The servers are flooded with questions how to check ping and since there's no in-game method to check it, here's how to do it properly:

 

1. Download PsTools from Microsoft TechNet it includes a utility called PsPing, direct link here.

2. Extract the zip file somewhere and navigate to it and hold Shift and right click somewhere in the folder, click "Open command window here".

3. For the Soha EU server type psping 206.127.149.3:10100 (for other servers check below) in the window that popped up and press Enter.

 

IP 206.127.149.3 is Soha (EU) server.

IP 64.25.37.238 is Mushin (NA) server.

 

Don't forget the port 10100 (psping.exe IP:port) after specifying server IP.

The other EU/NA servers are located in the same respective data center so it shouldn't matter.

 

Have fun! =)

I suspect there's an anti DDoS protection system that blocks IP's that are either not whitelisted or don't have some kind of ID key that gets sent when logging in through the game. Have you tried the CMD while logged in?

 

I'm not a networking guy so really these are just guesses.

Maybe a stupid question but when I paste the IP of the EU server '206.127.149.3'. I get that the server is located in Austin - Texas. 

Is this correct?

wtf, so we dont really a server located in EU? The one they said located in germany is bullshjt?

You know what do WTFast do ?

They locate a server for you to connect you indirect with fast way to the game server

That what EU serve plan do, Just indirect way to connect you to Austin Server with fast ping using EU server 

But the real Serve located in USA, They just connect you trough EU server which not helping at all

did they just straight up lied to us then? xD

I understand it will reduce the ping to their US server drastically but you can never get the ping as if the server were in germany.

That psping thingy says i'll hit max 68ms while resource monitor shows +300ms.

So which one is our little liar ? I didn't play on asian servers before so i don't know how it feels on three digit latencies.

I just made a topic about this too (https://forums.bladeandsoul.com/forums/index.php?/topic/142660-eu-servers-still-connecting-to-ips-in-usa-causing-massive-lag/)

It was the same last CBT weekend and other german players were reporting the same issue.

I'd really like to hear some official statement from NCSoft on this!

 

my guess is Eu launch servers will be in Germany  these close beta servers are for testing nothing more wouldn't surpirse me if they stop existing  after the last beta.

after all we have fraction of people  that will be logging into the game on jan 19

Or you could forget about downloading extracting and port forwarding, and just do this: https://imgur.com/a/OvHdw

 

Or even better, a ping meter could be added to the GUI in order to save everyone the trouble.

I have like 4-5 pings, which one is saying my actual ping?

Port 10241 is actual game server.

 

EU gameplay and chat servers are in the EU (Community Managers have said this before several times), except for the web services, e.g. Character Info and Marketplace, which for some reason are still in the US (Dallas, Texas).

You know that Character information and Marketplace suppose to be located into Database ? So Eu database located into Texas ?

Network study xD

And beside just look at what they said before, Character info and marketplace located into Texas mean Database located into Texas
