Crazy delay in the States

Anyone playing in the states getting stupid delay in WL today? It’s horrible right now. Players won’t touch the ball properly, shots don’t get taken quick enough, passes don’t go where they’re supposed to be. Is it just me?

    That was yesterday for me. Never happened before ...but I figured it was because of the blizzard/tornado near my area.

    Recommend not playing at night time in the states. That’s when the Mexicans in Mexico play. They are the most meta players out there.

    That’s the only time some people can play though.

    Yeap the delay was insane... always matching up against Latin Americans..4 bars always..never got a 5 bar latency.. I believe they dont get delay, most North Americans suffer delays

  • I played WL for about two hours on Sunday night and I had no lag at all in any of the games, for whatever that's worth. I'm in Virginia.

    Just so you European players can know what we’re going through. If someone from Seattle plays someone in Mexico City that’s the same as someone from the UK playing someone in Saudi Arabia. Sure, Ive heard it happens once in awhile but imagine if that was who you matched up with 50-75% of the time

    I can feel immediately the lag when the game start. check the name and most of the times it's Latin american name or flags. but when I play against people from NA )you can tell by the name most of the times). the game is really smooth

    I've found that you can get into a stretch where EA is connecting you to servers in London instead of the servers stateside. Assuming they use some sort of algorithm and it isn't just blind luck, I imagine it is due to the servers over there have very little load in the middle of the night, but then the network latency gets you and leads to laggy game play.

    I had a stretch last week where it was unplayable for a few days and it was because I was connecting to UK based servers. This weekend I played Friday night, Saturday Night, Sunday Daytime and ha no issues with lag.

  • I had two 4 game losing streaks on Saturday where the lag was unbearable
  • I played WL for about two hours on Sunday night and I had no lag at all in any of the games, for whatever that's worth. I'm in Virginia.

    What time?

    10pm to midnight (eastern time)

    That's why I've stopped playing the game. I live in Virginia, 95% of games have been horrible unless I play closer to midnight.

    Do not think that it's fine in Europe. I'm in italy and it's horrible over here too, it is smooth only after midnight.

    I play i two locations: Los Angeles and Pittsburgh. Playing in PIT is HORRIFIC because I am so close to the servers in N. Virginia that I am severely lagged. I imagine Philly is about the same, maybe worse.

    The game has a general sluggish feel due to the crappy Frostbite engine I believe. If you add delay to the mix the game becomes unplayable anywhere in the world. I like to dribble and skill a bit but that becomes completely impossible once you have additional delay. It changes the game completely to me. Losing to people who can barely hold a controller... SIGH :s :s :s

    Hey Guys, I created a thread over on EA Answers (Dev Forum) in hopes of getting enough attention to have someone look at it. If you have a second please comment or 1up the discussion.
