WoT: High Ping Value Issues

After the release of Update 1.14, you may have noticed an increased ping value in the game client during battle.

Why did it happen? With the release of Update 1.14, we performed technical maintenance aimed at improving the quality of the game. At the same time, in addition to network delays, additional time for server processing was added in the ping calculation system (this time wasn’t previously taken into account). As a result of maintenance, the actual connection quality for players remained the same or improved, but the new ping values could cause confusion.

What’s Next?

Players are used to determining the connection quality by the already established ping ranges, and we want to keep the comfort they are used to. Therefore, we will bring the visual display of ping back to the previous system in the next server update, while keeping the new optimization mechanisms.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

  1. I noticed some rubbery movement and other too. 20 felt like 120…
    But it was only occasionally and scattered over weeks…. No big deal
    Odd. But stopped a while ago. Shrug.

    At least now I know it’s not imagination or Packet loss

  2. Imagine being so incompetent that it took more than 10 years to report correctly the ping in the game.

  3. Sure thing there WG. So the dropped packets are a feature, you should become politicians if you want to blow that kind of smoke.

  4. Yup, actual connection quality was improved, which is why my tank merrily kept on driving today when I tried to stop. Repeatedly. All because I was confused by a faulty ping calculation system, of course. Silly me.

  5. Since 1.14 I don’t need to drink alocohol and smoke cannabis any longer to experience delay-like effects of my crew. Finally it’s built-into game. I bet there were thousands of posts wishing for such functionality, so WG delivered. They are known for carefully listening to their player base. It will save me also lot of money for illegal substances and my health. Last evening I was like so high (the game was) that it was almost impossible for me to play with anything but arty. So I ended up playing only arty. Perhaps this was a goal. Or was it direct order from Viktor K so that players can feel like him most time of the day? My 800-900ms was perhaps like his cocaine? Now his world can be closer with us
