Ping

Has anyone else noticed that since last Friday night Dec 12 that their ping or download speed has been seriously curtailed. My ping for game play online went from 30-60 to over 2300. Just wondering if anyone else in the North American catch basin was having the same problem?

Here's a thought,most of the New England grid was shut down due to ice storm damage last Friday,perhaps servers were overloaded due to rerouting the bandwidth.I'm in the middle of it up here and have had no ill effects from it.I downloaded about 20GB since Friday.That's a little above average for me.

Your ping is the time it takes for a signal to get from your computer to the game server and back. If it gets to high (long) you get lag. This is like walking and acting in slow motion, not good if you are playing a shooter game like Battlefield 2. Everyone else is OK but you move too slow and keep getting your a## shot off. Just wanted to know if anyone else played this game on here and if they were having the same problems.
