Really appreciate everything guys, game is awesome, any word on a fix for the issue where some people seem to have higher ping no matter what?

I have the same internet provider and speed as my friend who plays and his ping is always low. My ping is always much higher and this hasn't been an issue in any other game. This makes me feel like the issue could be on my end, as if there is something I need to change in game settings with regard to my processor? I seen a post on here that said something about how ping on here isn't just connection related, but also has something to do with processing? I'm not a super knowledgeable computer guy, but I have an AMD Ryzen 2700X so I really don't see my processor speed being the issue. I'm the only person using my internet connection, and as I said, my friends ping is fine and his internet is the exact same as mine and we live 15 minutes away from each other.

There are numerous other people having this issue and you can usually spot them when you join a server full of 60 ping players and they're chilling at 120. I've seen post on here and Reddit about the topic. Not trying to sound whiney, love the game, just hoping someone on here might know a fix! Thanks.

I have the exact same issue, literally exact same issue, but i'm in the USA. Can't find anyone on here willing to give an answer. Please let me know if either of you figure it out.

Marox just explained why the ping seems higher than other games and it looks like no one read or acknowledged it. It's a little frustrating.

So is there nothing we can do to troubleshoot. I seen what he said, but that comment was old so i thought this was a new issue. I don't really get what he meant. Is there essentially nothing we can do?

I also keep getting consistently higher ping than what I should have. I live in Norway. When the official EU servers on the server browser display 50-80 ping, I go into them, and instead I fluctuate between 80 and 180 ping. On the worst occasions, I basically get crippled into 1000+ ping. Sometimes the game also reports packet loss. There is no reason why it would be like that, and other multiplayer games work perfectly fine.

I have the same problem just not that extreme, i get 80-120 ping and i'm located in Prague. Other games are also fine.

It seems to be fixed now.

did you change anything that you know of?

I have this exact issue. I'm playing in Eastern US. Ping is fine on all other games. Please help :(

Lag is definitely better, but ping continues to be a big issue. We did a group yesterday with some people from Greece and Cyprus and we continue to play in all servers with more than 90 ping when the servers have over 30 people. Is there something we can do for this? For south european zone in general, the ping is extremely high. This only happens on Mordhau, I have asked others aswell and it is the same for them.

In other games, which server locations work for your region?

Specific locations are not known to me, but I can tell you countries at least. German servers usually end up with 60 ping for me. France servers 60-65. Specifically I played mount and blade last week on a 200-man server (located in Germany) and had 62 ping maximum with 150 people on it. I have posted before the servers and games that I tested (1-2 weeks before Mordhau release) and I quote:

''Mount and Blade - Mount and Siege server located in Germany, 200 slot server. It had about 160 people on. 63 ping
Mercenaries mod server (mount and blade) central europe - 100 slot server, 50 people. 62 ping
Battlefield 1 - official Frankfurt server, 64 players slot - full server, 59 ping
Overwatch - Official EU - 54 ping
CSGO competitive matchmaking on a friend's account (EU) - 48 ping''

All of these tests were done because of the strange pings I get in Mordhau. I thought it might be me in the end, but apparently all greek players play on the range of 80-100, and Cyprus players have it the worst, playing with 120 red ping constantly. All of the people I asked said the same thing, Mordhau is the only game that this happens.

I think its selfish to ask for specific south european servers considering the fact that you are a small company and not Steam that can afford servers everywhere, but I dont think that is a solution. The problem clearly only happens in Mordhau so it has to be either a server provider issue or a netcode/networking issue. Regardless, the game is pretty unplayable if you want to improve. I mean, we can play it, but obviously the hits that go through parries despite correct aiming is there, also the clunkiness that ping brings is very evident.

I played with a dude from Cyprus before a few minutes who port forwarded Mordhau ports aswell, he still gets 120 ping which is a 40-50 number higher than his normal in other games.

I understand that your resources are limited and you have a 9-man power, but if you could look at it, it would be great. Its really hard to enjoy frontlines at the moment and most of the official servers for us down here.

Lastly, I think the issue is with your server provider because the jumps in ping depending on server population is what changes the most. With 30 people in a frontline server, I get 75 ping. With 48 people, I get about 88. With 64, I get 96 with jumps to 110. The servers are being overloaded with traffic they cannot keep while being stable. Someone who plays normally with 20 ping will play with 40-50 on a 64p server while full. While 50 ping is ok, after 60 the changes are very crucial and affecting. For me 60 ping is normal and I can enjoy the game. With 90, I cannot, at all. At least not if I want to be somewhat competitive in the match. Which explains how a server from mount and blade can keep me with 60 ping with twice the people your servers have while my latency suffers in Mordhau. The problem is the server capacity and what the server can do, if its not networking/netcode.

Hi, I just wanted to say this is not just happening for Euro servers. I have this exact issue and I live in Eastern US. My friends who have the exact same internet provider and speed as me will join a server and have 40-70 ping. I join and have 90-150. It is only with Mordhau.Ping in Chivalry and every other steam game is fine. Have seen multiple people from multiple areas of the world posting with this exact same issue. If anyone knows a fix please let me know.
