Sad but true.
Out of curiosity - at what point would you say 'Enough is enough.' and change server provider? Are there major issues with doing something like that? - these aren't meant to be rhetorical questions, I'd honestly like to know.
As unwelcome as trumpeting competing servers may be I am fairly sure Hampshire Heavies hasn't had as many problems as THG has had and they've got quite a lot more to handle on their server.

That's not true, Hampshire Heavies had equal, if not worse issues. click

I no theirs nothing we can do or hasn't been done to try and get #1 stable,im just pointing out that there still seem's to be an issue if not a slightly different one to what we have had in the past ie the 2 second freezers then playable again, no connection time out's and to be honest as much as it's not the smoothest, i don't get lag a such just those freezers which i would most likely say it was my end if it wasn't for everyone else shouting out about it.

  this thread should be kept alive and reported in, in-case the host or such needs to have a look :)


 So this should be kept at a reporting thread not a moaning thread Smile

I stand corrected. Admittedly I've only been on there fairly recently and then only when THG servers have been giving me odd pings. My apologies.

That said - anyone have any idea what could be causing 4-5 random players pings to float quietly up to between 100-150 for all THG servers while leaving other players unaffected?

This is not our server that's giving you a high ping this will be a HOP which is another server your internet is taking you through to reach our server. Simple routing issue some players get it some don't as they use different routing to the IP..

What you need to do is a traceroute/tracert to see what server it is causing the issue and then we can see from that but usually there is not much you can do sux I know but that's London routing for yah :<

Read this link and copy your trace route here ok m8..

The lag hasn't been that bad from what I've seen. It's only the occasional hiccup that lasts a second or two. Sure, it's annoying, especially if it hits at the wrong time (middle of a fight), but at least they aren't happening all that often.

It'd be great if that could be fixed, but still the servers a lot better than it was. And I'd rather have this type of problem than the one servers like Hampshire Heavies have. I tried playing on there a bit recently when we having problems and the server was down, and it was near unplayable with a real persistent lag that made it feel like you were playing with two or three times your actual ping.

I suspect that's not server lag, but a different bug made by valve related to the dynamic model loading thingy implemented last content patch.
What happens is 1 or 2 'new' players (for instance respawned players that changed classes) enter the predefined area for starting the dynamic model loading (i.e 15 meters away, or your visual area), the dynamic loading happens as expected but in doing so causes a temporary resources bottleneck that gives you your hickup.

You will find it happens most after a respawn if you are looking behind you when approaching random corners. Approaching corners behind which action happens while looking around and behind also seems to trigger it sometimes.

No, it's definitely server side (the cries of "LAGGGG" from others gives it away).

just a quick question...once the server is 100% again, would we be willing to re-introduce the replay system?


...please? Very Happy

Yeah, that's the #1 reason I haven't played on THG lately, and I can't imagine I'm the only one.

It shouldn't be a problem on the technical side, hundreds of servers have it running smoothly @ 24 players.

yeah same tbh.

Im really into video making, and the replay thing to me, is like all my christmas's coming at once. I have so much fun on THG, but the lack of replays is very dis-couraging.

Fingers crossed! :D

note:
Although thg doesnt lack players, i sure do hope the replay gets re-introduced.

as far as i recall somebody said, that the provider had trouble with replays on their other servers, too.
too bad, i really like that feature. especially in arena sometimes you'd want a replay ^^
