    depends on where you play from, and if you got a good connection or not.

    I think 400+ ping can get a bit laggy, so i advice you to stay on a server closer to your location.

    pretty much what sasuke said


    my ping is usually 100-150 in FH and 80ish all elsewhere

    that being said when the server flinches the ping will skyrocket to 10k-20k so "normal" ping is hard to say lol

    400ms is only 4/10ths of a second..so it would be only barely noticeable.the bad lag is when your ping is upwards of 700...then you really start to feel it and it becomes rather annoying.

    Pings doesn't matter as much in MMORPG's, but it gets annoying. I suggest you try every server, like i get better pings in FR server than in EU server, even though i'm a londoner.

    I get 80+ in FH, and 20 in random places.

    I'm living in Europe myself (in The Netherlands to be more specific), but I joined Eyrda because a friend played in this server too.
    My ping is around 300-400 during normal gameplay. However, when im in a PK fight I do notice that things get laggy x_x"

    I read somewhere that the server from EU is located in Amsterdam (capital city of The Netherlands) so I really am interested in changing servers. xD

    But oh well.
    During non-PK/PVP times the ping is really not such a bother.

    My ping ranges from 200 to almost 500 on Lionheart and I LIVE HERE. -_- It's never interfered with my gaming, except in Freedom Harbor, but why can't Asians play the Asian version?

    Sorry necro :D
    high ping matters in PVP's.. lets see uptill that lvl..

    Reason why i didn't play pvp server..
    but why can't Asians play the Asian version?

    Because asian using various language and not just one ? English is said to be international language, that's why there bigger chance for asian to play here. Than on asian server with language they didn't know.

    I choose Eyrda due to the reason stated on posts above -lower ping on closer location- and the fact of it being the nearest timezone to Brazil, so my gameplay don't get screwed much.

    PING here usually stays bout 200~500, but it isn't really noticeable so whatever.

    It wasn't a nechro really, the last post barely 11 days ago XD

    High ping makes nightmare carnival into real nightmare, because you can't even go pass the first stage without someone helping you.

    @mirrai : that's the first REAL response I've ever heard to the question. Thank you. Usually I just hear "**** you guai lo, har har har".

    I would think though that since all forms of Chinese use the same writing system (?) that it wouldn't be a problem at least for them though. :confused:

    Hahahahaha!
    Aww xD

    The chinese writing system is indeed roughly the same for Mandarin (Mainland China) and Cantonese (Hong Kong). But not every chinese can/wants to read chinese characters all the time.

    As for me, there are so many different characters and specific chinese gaming terms that I don't know... I prefer to play in the english client. Not to mention that if you don't read chinese on a daily basis you have to actually decipher each word one by one xD

    tl;dr - Those who have no problems reading Chinese are probably already playing on the chinese client.

    I want to add one more why people want to play here.. :)
    PWE international server is very good on preventing or handling bots
    Any other games made by pwe but published by different company or in china server = lots bot
