There have been a couple of threads over the last month about how it's been taking people longer to log in to the game. It was taking me about 45 seconds to log in. After patch 11.0 dropped, it's now taking me two minutes to log in to the game. Is anyone else experiencing this?
1:13 to get to the daily rewards screen - I also need to mention I do use some mods.
First game tonight was rough - machine acting as if I had low amounts of available ram (I had over 4 gigs out of 16 gigs free - so that was not the issue). Looked at Resource Monitor and saw no latency issues or packetloss but I fired up tracert for the IP address in Resource Monitor and saw that RR back bone (Spectrum cable) had increasing latency till it got to about 102-105 ms. The ping counter in the game was fluctuating but never got into the 50 ms. We also had a late loading DD and I would bet that was from latency as well.
I shut the game down and then restarted the game. Time to get to the port was 1:24.70. Did another tracert (different IP address) got a different route but do have latency. Resource Monitor also saw latency of over 100 ms.
and another trace:
7:40 PM EST not any better:
So YES - there is latency out there BEFORE the WG servers. And yes - it decidedly CAN affect login time as well and as to be expected.
