CENTRAL IS THE BEST
6 ping on east
40-50 on west
Im fine with playing on west connection, I mean it’s not like I only sign up for home games so I can purposely ruin the connection for 80% of players because “west coast best coast”. I dont have a problem with west coast players, but the people who actually make “west lines” and only play them home games I do have a problem with, because they are purposely doing this as a way to gain an advantage in a game they otherwise wouldnt have one in.
25 - 30 on west, 35 - 50 on East from what I remember, though I haven't played club in a couple months so I'm not sure if thats accurate
Is it like that in club games too or mainly challenge dr?
whats everyone's upload/download? perhaps if we're collecting data, that may be useful for standardizing with controlled variables.
Avs won a cup on that
From new york and get 9-12 east and about 35-42 on west. It makes a big difference. Not enough west players in the league for teams to match west lines up against each other, so until then people will always take advantage.
Just seeing what peoples thoughts are Chieff God. Connection dictates much of this game. If you're going into the corner for the puck and it's a 50/50 battle with someone and they have the better ping, they're most likely going to win that battle. Hard to adjust when the pucks at your feet, but you don't pick it up. We've all seen fucked up shit in this game lol The game rewards good ping. It's a limitation on players. Not a matter of whos good or not, but if we really want to showcase skill, then this is what needs to be improved. I guess I am complaining, but I think we'd all like a game where we play under the same conditions. Just my opinion.
Old gen never had this problem.
See, I'd actually prefer that. For me, the issue isn't necessarily the high ping for a west game - it's that I'm not used to played with that ping. Every game at 25-35, regardless of west or east, would be awesome.
I usually get 13-15 on east and 45-50 on west, and there is definitely a noticeable difference. If you aren't used to it, it takes you a period (maybe more) just to adjust.
Ping is mostly determined by distance from the server unless you have a download below 25. Spikes are more or less determined by how strong your internet is.
I have played on 40+ for 99% of my LG games and sure ill voice my frustration but then I have people telling me that "I'm used to it" and that I have to "battle through it" so I just want to let everyone know and this may come as a surprise but I would actually like to enjoy the game instead of "battling through it". Why are teams receiving hate for making a west line? are we supposed to play with a disadvantage just because of where we live? East coast players have had an advantage over the West players for a long time but there is nothing wrong that, right? but when West players have an advantage over East players, it turns into a huge fucking deal like we have this unfair advantage and should all be killed on the spot. Should I start saying "you will get used to it" and "just have to battle through it" like I have been told a million times?
Enjoy the game by purposefully making it unenjoyable for anybody you play? Its alot different when west players have a consistent 40 ping on east, because the majority of LG games are played on east. There are simply many more players in the east. That 40 ping is NORMAL for you guys, as you said, you have played 99% of your games on it.
Flip it over to the east side where we play on 10-20 on east (I personally play on 6). That is NORMAL for us. You can consider it an advantage if you wish, but we cannot help the game is made this way. We cannot help that there are more east players. The difference between west and east is that we aren’t purposefully giving ourselves an advantage, its just the way the game is.
My problem isnt with “west lines”, its with “west lines” playing 20-something home games on west against east opponents, so as to create a situation where there NORMAL ping of 40 is elevated, and our NORMAL ping of 10-20 is blown the fuck up to astronimcal heights.
TL;DR is that like 90% of games are played on east servers, therefore whatever ping you get on east is what you are used to, what you have been playing on for a majority of your time. Switching it to west is just a way to fuck east players, and give west players a little boost in ping, while thats not what we east players are doing at all.
I dont expect to change anyones mind but this is just my thinking behind it
Thats an essay my fault pals
So what you are saying is that I should just accept the shit connection to allow below average east players like yourself to have a chance?
No, and the personal shot shows how immature you are that you cannot accept that I just hit you with alot of facts, and you dont know how to respond other than a personal shot lol
It goes both ways. Blame the game not the players. You are telling us to accept playing on east just because. I bought this game just as you have and I will play on a good ping just like you have for 8 seasons. I am not looking for an advantage. I just don't want to play a slow game. There are still more east lines than west lines. Thats fair. If you can't adjust you will lose. I am open to playing other west lines or even a west coast league.
What im saying is that you should accept the ping that you play 99% of your games on (just like us east players). Instead of trying to make yourself look better and inflate the ego you so desperately cling to by making it even harder on the players you play, because you need better ping than whats normal for 90% of NHL players, including yourself.
