Ever since Gameforge purchased the userbase from NCsoft for Europe, my ping has been horrible, due to their poor quality service. I used to have ~150 at most with NC, look what that has become, this is in Kaisinel’s Acedemy at night time with not so many users online:
Using battleping brings that down a lot, sometimes as low as 80-90 but averaging 100-120. Still not really good but at least playable. BP seems to at least be a lot more consistent keeping the same ping, with no spikes whatsoever.
