    For awhile now it's been EAST vs WEST. Is location as important as skill?

    Many I have talked to who are west agree they play on anywhere from around 5-15ms on west and 40+ms on east. Those who are east, just vice versa.

    CENTRAL is a different story. I'm pretty sure not many in the community are central. I am central and have never played a game under 22ms. My ping also seems to have a higher chance of increasing against west. Those who are central have never played on home ice advantage. Has anyone who is central played on ping lower than 20ms? Is there a central disadvantage, due to playing on ping in the middle ground and possibly higher, never lower?

    To
    Conclude: it's a shame so many live their lives in the SB and have egos for a game that provides an uneven playing field for its players. I agree with what one member had said in an EA forum "limited fan base equates to a limited server infrastructure". Let's hope EA can supply the loyal players in its community with a decent game for 19 and give back to it's players (although presenting nothing at E3 doesn't give us much hope) Those with any additional info on NHL, connectivity, or what you'd like to see in the upcoming months, feel free to comment or correct me if I'm wrong.

    Pray to the hockey gods boys

    The east server is in DC. Closer you are with the faster the speeds will be the better the ping

    Hard to “adjust” when no matter what ping I have no two games feel alike.

    One game I have 9 ping but it feels like 100, the next I have 20 and it feels like 9....then I’m playing on 40 west and it feels like 20 east.

    How do I adjust when the game is constantly inconsistent.

    The real answer is you don’t, its a myth. Your brain is accustomed and used to whatever feels good naturally.

    I play Rocket League, used to a shit on, even on west its barely noticeable. Servers and players deserve better.

    Just hope this goes to PC so I could play at a much higher FPS one day which also would help with the smoothness.

    I’m central and usually between 20-24 east. West is usually mid 30’s.

    Connection on East: Ass (40+)
    Connection on West: Ass (55+)

    Internet is pretty good though so I don't understand it. Used to be like 15-25 on either host.

    Connection is also a lot worse in club challenge. Add like 20 ping on each host.

    East coast players have never teamed up and only played home games in order to take advantage of forcing west players onto bad connection.

    Central 22-35 here. Quite nice in general, but I'm sure a nice 5 ping game would be fun from time to time.

    I have yet to play an LG game with less than 88ping this season. I played averaging 180ping in my 2nd game last week. No. I don't know why I signed up, either.

    85% of the community is from the east coast. By default the community teams up and plays mostly east games. I played 26 of my 27 games on east connection. My team wouldn't let me host because I was west. Get over it and adjust. Or please bring your concerns to ea so something can be done. The more they are aware, the better for the community.
