Unbearable Lag

This is frustrating..
Greetings,




I stopped playing AVA a few months before the switch between IJJI and Aeria
duo to me trying to focus on my studies. Now that it's summer, I'm here to
enjoy some AVA... but hey, you gotta do this to me and ruin this game by
this POS lag.


Excuse my frustration, but ever since I got back, this game has become
laggy. And not just 'laggy', it's weird lag.


By weird, I mean.. some maps are only playable on EU server, and the rest
are only playable on NA server. Weird, huh? For example, I could play India
only on the NA server, and if I try to play it on the EU server, I get lag.
Not that '200 ping' lag. I mean lag where you can't even move from the
spawn spot for a min, and when you spawn, your weapon is stuck for 30
secs.. and when you finally pull out your weapon and move, you go back to
the same spot! I mean, WHAT THE ****?


I was able to grind some games by switching between EU and NA server. I had
literally over 150 leaves on my record in the past few weeks.. because when
I enter a match I gotta hope that I don't lag, and if I do I have to leave.
But finally, I could not even play a single game right now. E.g, before I'd
be able to play FFA Fox Hunting on NA server and not on EU server, but now
I can't play it on neither.


I don't actually recall changing anything about this PC, as I have not used
it since I stopped playing AVA on it. I only took my laptop to the campus
with me.


I tried reinstalling the game multiple times, I have no firewall or
antivirus on my PC. I tried installing the game on my Laptop. I port
forwarded the old ports used by IJJI. Nothing worked.


This is an example of PLAYABLE lag. It's pretty Brilliant, but I find it a
little bit playable (and funny when you shoot people and they die a few
secs later and call you a hacker). But the lag I'm experiencing right now
is NOT PLAYABLE AT ALL.

My apologies, It seems I wrote more than I intended to, it's a bad habit of
mine. I wanted to make it short, but short wouldn't be enough to describe
my issue. I hope you went through the trouble of reading it to possibly
understand my issue for the sake of helping me play my favorite game.

Hey m90ali,

Like the above poster said, your country location might have a great deal of effect on your lag but it should not be that much. I know many people who play from UAE without that much trouble.

Take a look at this thread. It consists of a list of helpful programs that may help you lower your ping and decrease you lag. They will also help you increase the over all performance of your computer and help you play AVA.

http://www.aeriagames.com/forums/en/viewtopic.php?t=1809523

The program that I would recommend to fix your lag is CCleaner. This program clears out your internet cache as well as your registry and also cleans up your browser cache all helping you decrease and lower your ping which will help you stop lagging.

Any questions let me know.

Hope that helps

It seems you guys are missing something. I've been playing this game for 2 years.. I only experienced this problem after I got back from a long break and downloaded Aeria's version.


My PC has always been the same, I didn't even change anything about it since I stopped playing AVA as I was studying abroad. My internet isn't 'bad', it's 16 mbps download and 4 mbps upload and it's a fiber optic. My net has always been the same, so why am I only getting this issue after downloading Aeria's AVA?

Hey there m90! Smile

When we merged, the Servers got changed.

For example on IJJI, the North American Server was located in USA and now, after A.V.A. gets transfered to Aeria the North American Server was moved to Canada so this can be the reason on why you have Higher Ping.

Now, regarding the EU Server...I don't really know and what you said is really weird:

 
some maps are only playable on EU server, and the rest
are only playable on NA server. Weird, huh? For example, I could play India
only on the NA server, and if I try to play it on the EU server, I get lag.
Not that '200 ping' lag.  


But yeah regarding the NA Server that's probably be the main reason, since the NA Server was moved to Canada your connection will be weaker.
