    Apparently according to this thread on BL the Euro servers have been moved to America.
    http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654348420733201/1/


    After doing some checking myself it seems to be true, euro servers according to their IP locations are located in Redwood City, California :eek:

    Example:
    This Euro server http://bf3stats.com/server/360_2069383e-e4a3-4c18-9026-9ea87a9cc78c

    After putting its IP (159.153.80.141) into this tracker site http://www.iplocation.net/index.php [TABLE="width: 670"]
    [TR]
    [TD="width: 80"]159.153.80.141[/TD]
    [TD]United States[/TD]
    [TD]California[/TD]
    [TD]Redwood City[/TD]
    [TD]Electronic Arts Inc. :troll:[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]



    Euro server list use to find servers & their IP (check the server you rent or play on)

    http://www.iplocation.net/index.php
    or
    http://www.ip-tracker.org/lookup/whois-lookup.php

    Enter IP into one of the above links.

    Oh! If this is correct, them ping bars you see on the server browser are just a fucking fabrication.


    Could a mod change the (360) in the title to consoles please..................Thanks mod.

    All console players need to know about this & need to stop renting servers.

    Tested this on another server. Rented as European, based in Redwood now pinging it with 80 ms tracing through the Czech Republic and Poland into the US.

    No more Money into server rentals from my side now.

    No need to be sorry! After all it is a fucking disgrace! All European console players are getting shafted more so the ones that rent servers.

    If checked a load of "Euro servers" for both 360 & ps3 they are all in cali, even a official DICE[NL] server is there :troll:

    I think the last server down time (maintenance) was to move the server farm.

    The Satan caused all this mess.

    I was playing with 80-120 ping to EU servers my whole life (PC)
    If I had a console, I'd have over 250 ping, that would be horrible.

    Request timed out x4
    lol

    I'm no network guru but a 114ms ping from a trace route is prolly gonna translate into a much higher ping in game I'd guess approximately double.

    If you are player A, shooting at player B (both players from same geo location)
    Player A, has to send data to server> server sends data to player B> player B has to send data back to server that is then sent back to you, thus doubling the ping.

    Now that's not taking into account, network traffic/congestion that the servers have, or the quality of internet/connection the other players have to the server.
    Putting all the factors together could well push that trace-route ping past double in game.

    Now I'm just theorizing so if I'm wrong? Please feel free to correct me.

    PlanetSide 2 server locations o_O

    I don't understand that website.

    [​IMG]

    The server address for Connery is 64.37.174.142 and I get a average ping of 162ms. That's what I would expect to get from the UK to US west coast.

    [​IMG]

    Now the server address for Briggs is 69.174.220.24 and I get a average ping of 337ms. That's what I would expect to get from the UK to Australia.

    So according to iplocaton.net both of the servers are in San Diego yet I get vastly different pings.

    Dafuq :confused:

    LOL

    This is like, a MASSIVE issue

    This is the sorta thing that should lead to Firings and resignations within EA/DICE
    Will make the game defeacto unplayable for EU players,and make people who rented servers look like even bigger mugs than be4 :troll:

    If it's anything like BC2, EA started using a gateway arrangement, whereby you connect into their network like a VPN. So you can never actually find the real IP address of the server.

    Either way you can rest assured EA will spend the least amount on servers as possible.

    I'm glad I no longer have a rented server but i feel for those who do.

    needless to say won't be renting another one from here on out.

    I get a average ping of 25ms to the IP address the OP posted.

    [​IMG]

    I also get a average ping of 28ms to the IP address woes posted.

    [​IMG]

    I get a average ping of 102ms to this IP address (Google Inc, CA)

    I think the servers are in the same place and the website is just wrong.

    FYI just because the IP is registered as being in the US does not mean that it is.
