    How's your ping?

    So it seems (as we guessed they might) the NA servers have headed to the West Coast (Sacramento).

    From here https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comme...d_517/dhnylsy/

    neolobby02.ffxiv.com
    neolobby04.ffxiv.com
    Those are the lobby servers for the 2 NA data centers (Aether and Primal). Now that the game is live, you can also find the IP for your specific server and ping that if you want. However the results should not vary if you do this.
    UK player here - gone from 90-160ish.

    So playable but not fantastic. East coast Canadian friend went up to 87 ish. From what I'm reading there are considerable jumps from South America to the extent that the EU datacenter is pinging lower for several https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comme...d_517/dho0vbk/

    I'm up to 90 from 30s and can no longer double weave OGCDs.

    I'm about as lucky as can be, I went from 110-120ms ping to 15ms, the servers are about 45 minutes away from me. The difference is absolutely night and day, mudras register perfectly, ogcd use is super smooth, and I can actually double weave now. I can wait until an enemy cast bar is practically full to dodge and still make it, whereas before I'd need to be out of the aoe/turned by a bit over halfway or I'd get hit. It feels like this is the amount of latency the game was actually designed for, which makes sense as it's probably a fairly average number for a player in Japan.

    That said, as happy as I want to be about it, a lot of my friends that live on the east coast are now in the same situation I was before. I really feel like they should have gone with somewhere like Colorado or Texas. Going from Quebec to California did nothing but change who has the ping issues, not address them like they said they planned. The only difference I can see is that routing may be better so there might be less issues like the level3 router going into Montreal.

    BT fiber. A couple of friends from Birmingham (UK) have pings of around 180 on Virgin.

    assuming the
    neolobby02.ffxiv.com/ neolobby04.ffxiv.com thing is correct, hovering around the 200 mark from Norway on Fiber.

    100+ to 30ish, Washington state. I wasn't able to double-weave if I had any amount of haste, and I've been preemptively running out of telegraphs since forever. Can't wait to see how it runs after work.

    Basically the opposite situation for me was about 30 now about 110-130 (eastern PA). Tested it this morning and I'm pretty frustrated tbh.

    Are there servers or were the people in Europe just playing on North American servers? If there weren't servers in Europe it seems really annoying for people over there that they moved the servers to the west coast of the United States, farther away from Europe. This benefits me but I never really had issues on the servers in their previous location.

    The actual EU servers came during early 3.x

    Many players on NA had established communities by that point.

    Went from 50-150ms (depending on level3's mood) to 100-150ms, with the odd hit at 200-250ms.
    Compared to say, WoW's Centralized American server (24.105.62.129 as per their support site), 40-60ms.

    Why SE went from one extreme to the other is fucking beyond me.

    Initially all servers in NA and EU were based in Montreal.
