[DIS] Move the server to France or stay in Canada?

Post by gumi » 20 Jul 2016, 18:59

The TMW server is currently physically located in Beauharnois (Greater Montreal, Quebec, Canada) and some players experience very bad lags. It is possible for us to move the server to France if more players would benefit from it.

Canada
  • Lower ping (less lag) for players in the Americas
  • Higher ping (more lag) for players in Europe and Asia
France
  • Higher ping (more lag) for players in the Americas
  • Lower ping (less lag) for players in Europe and Asia

In my opinion moving the server would only move the problem elsewhere instead of solve it. Players in America would now be the ones experiencing lag. If TMW has more European players than American players moving might still be a good thing

Canada: big pings for all except Canada and USA.
Frace: very good ping for europe and not too bad ping for everyone else. For Asia for example this is better than Canada

Is there a better location else than in France that could bring a better average ping? Brexit Kingdom or Germany are better than France?

I don't think this is of public competence. This should be an internal decision. Voted France nevertheless.

Well, at least if we move and some players experience more lag we can tell them it's their fault
