    Hello all,

    Let me first say that some of you will like this change and some of you definitley won't but our new L.A. server is online and we decided to move scenario and custom coop there as well. We think this is the ideal centric location for players from Asia, US, EU and LATAM. Some of you will see their ping increase, others decrease. It's the way it is, if it doesn't work well... we'll see by then.

    This is a pretty big deal for us anyway since this is the first time we're moving away from OVH and use Voxility for our DDoS protection needs, so we'll probably see how that pans out later on. We're pretty excited about this though!

    For the new IPs take a look at Sourcebans or stats, but here they are anyway:

    5.254.38.20:27015 Points Reloaded COOP US (mgftw.com)
    5.254.38.19:27015 Points Reloaded Custom COOP (mgftw.com)
    5.254.38.19:27016 Points Reloaded Scenario (mgftw.com)


    Have fun and any feedback is appriciated!

    I'm going to see a drastic increase in terms of ping yet excited to see how things turn out :)

    Looking good Marvel! LA servers seemed to give me average ping of around 240ms so it does make somethings a bit easier to do. ^^

    Who knows if other server changes will be needed in the future, but only time will tell with the player base. Thanks again!

    Speak for yourself
    Routing sucks from Mongolia.
    On TF2 i would get 180ms ping on LA servers while on on these servers i get 245ms.

    Do you have the IP of that TF2 server so I can check?

    Thanks.

    It is a community run server from Skial.

    Yeah NFO servers. We used that once but they couldn't provide us with adequate protection for DDoS attacks. It went down like the Titanic when it got attacked.

    When I ping that TF2 IP from Singapore and our IP from Singapore as well I get almost the same result though, but it can vary for each player and each connection as all providers have different peering contracts.

    So it's never possible to give every player the best possible routing.

    Code:
    [email protected]:~# ping 162.248.93.216
    PING 162.248.93.216 (162.248.93.216) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from 162.248.93.216: icmp_seq=1 ttl=53 time=239 ms
    64 bytes from 162.248.93.216: icmp_seq=2 ttl=53 time=239 ms
    
    [email protected]:~# ping 5.254.38.18
    PING 5.254.38.18 (5.254.38.18) 56(84) bytes of data.

    Before the change (EU), PH, INDO, MY, SG all getting overflows and 2 seconds delay without donor VPN, played 5 scenarios on new LA server, with my SEAsian peeps, all stable. Except for Thailand ips, Ivan said that his ping is around the 300 plus range. But this is a mega big QOL change for us, the main issue was the overflow tbh, usually without VPN, we have to reconnect many times during a scenario.

    Btw to make my point read here:
    If you can provide me with MTRs of the higher pings I can ask Voxility to take a look at it.

    See here: https://mgftw.com/threads/we-need-your-help-improving-ovh-asia-routing-peering.6621/

    Use: la.mgftw.com instead of asia.

    APAC players can you please post MTRs from your location to la.mgftw.com?

    And can you also do another MTR to 162.248.93.216 (Which is a TF2 NFO server).

    This is for me to compare, and to proof Voxility the difference is too big.

    Thx!

    Connecting from Australia

    Pathing is almost exactly the same, except the worst ping received is more volatile to changes when it comes to the TF2 NFO server.

    I'll be sure to let the rest of the APAC players know to see if they want to send in their MTR's here too later on.

    (Ignore that white link)

    Can't say this will be of much help, but if that's their ping, then they have an extremely already good ping for the LA servers ^^
