To our Champions, Regarding Servers

    anyway I honestly don't have any lag for now, just some yesterday but might have been my internet or something

    You haven't played the game after the server issues appeared, when you first posted in this thread. You only played 3 matches (which isn't a number that is a viable sample) after saying following things:

    works on my pc, works on 20 of my friends pc
    then maybe change your internet, I live in the mountains and got no problems
    I'd even say most people don't have problems

    Smells like rotten liar in here.

    What is with these forum names with U followed by a bunch of numbers? We are supposed to remember these people?

    You know some people have more than one account and the forum name doesn't have to match the name in the game. I should know since I have three Paladins accounts and my forum name isn't one of them. You should know too, just look at your name here. On top of that, the guru website is notorious for not updating in a timely manner and doesn't show those with private profiles.

    I have been playing - mostly training lately (which don't show on guru ever). I played a bunch of real matches yesterday and Saturday though (NA server). By some miracle the account I played on yesterday updated today.
    https://paladins.guru/profile/716846564-PlayBlind/matches
    I did NOT experience any noticeable issues during any matches yesterday or Saturday but other players on both teams had complaints here and there.

    Seems to me it's affecting some players and not others. Calling someone a liar over this is ridiculous.

    PS: Your stupid argument about his rank is just as unfounded. I know for a fact he has been in masters multiple times.



  • Did anyone have laggy issued?
    event my ping is 16 but play like a robot???

    @darkkiss21993 That's some messed up crap right there... If I experienced anything like that I wouldn't bother playing.



  • @Vaporized Training matches seem to have no lag, and are largely irrelevant. Profile was updated just fine, and it's not private. Are you telling me he stopped playing on his account as soon as server issues appeared, and started playing on a smurf? He was playing a dozen matches every day before that on that account. And the 3 matches that he played were TDM and Onslaught, even though they account for less than 4% of his games normally, and before them are pages after pages of Siege and Ranked. Oof, that's really suspicious.
    But I'm sure he's not at all lying and can prove that he really was smurfing. :^)

    I did NOT experience any noticeable issues during any matches yesterday

    That is some very valuable information. Maybe HiRez can develop a vaccine to server issues from your account that is miraculously unaffected amidst all us victims.



  • @darkkiss21993 that's a similar issue to what I am experiencing. Its almost like HiRez moved all their server hosting to the AWS cloud.

    Actually you're wrong about that. Prior to this latest mess I did have lags and other problems in bot matches.

    Guru sometimes drops matches altogether even when it appears it has updated to the latest stuff - lost info forever. I'm not telling you what he did and did not do. I'm simply saying you don't know either and have no right to call anyone a liar over a troublesome website.

    Actually it is useful for them to know that not everyone is having problems. Maybe it's an internet routing issue and not the servers at all. But hey, you must know how all this stuff works and that everyone must be a liar if it doesn't go along with your thinking.

    Yes, go ahead and give them an excuse to not roll back to a previous stable build. They'll spin it as "some players have issues after the latest update and we're looking into potential network issues", instead of fixing the problem overnight. EU and SEA servers started lagging months ago after "optimizations". NA started lagging 3 days ago after "optimization". Latam server had no "optimization" and has no lag currently. It's clear that they are systematically updating every server to a shitty build that is supposed to improve crossplay or some Epic compatibility. If this trend goes on, all the servers will be unplayable for the majority of players, for who knows how long. Maybe they are forced to implement some trash because of a contract with console manufacturers or Epic Games, but I want this to be fixed right now. It's not ok to be unable to jump almost every game, or be unable to consistently use abilities every other game. Don't make any excuses for Evil Mojo, this is inexcusable.

    dude I played dozens of matches since then
    I can't say it enough
    guru doesn't update properly -.-

    just stfu already you just a dummy with trash internet


  • PC

    @U1322272759 Where did I make any excuses? I want everyone to have the best possible experience so matches aren't won/lost due to game issues. A bunch of clueless forum users making conjectures doesn't do anything. (including myself here since IDK what was done or why)

    You can either wait it out or try to help by providing them with the info they requested. Your choice.

    Not sure whether that's a satisfactory explanation or an excuse. I'm leaning towards excuse though.



  • I see. It's not HiRez's fault guys. Fix your internet. Where did I hear that already ? Oh, right, 10 months ago when Delay was a thing.
    I understand the situation is currently quite complicated, however there are a few things that don't check out:

    • I play CSGO - How amazing ? No packet loss, no lags.. Hmm one new data point.
    • What about Valorant, a game that is still in beta - No packet loss, no lags... That's weird.
    • Let's try a third game, Overwatch - Same situation. No lags, no packet loss.
    • I quickly browsed r/Rainbow6, no issue on the horizon, either.

    It still amazes me, after so many years, how Paladins, HiRez, is not able to recognize problems. It is simply not possible that they are the only game developers facing such an issue and can't fix it.

    LOL - someone down thumbed my link to reddit. I guess someone thinks they shouldn't post on the official forum?

    I agree that many lag issues existed prior to the Corona virus stuff. I mean was bitching about rampant AFKs well into last year. Assuming it really is internet issues then maybe they need to look at how network communication is being handled because packet loss and packet delays are never going away.

    @YouSmeIlNice

    you know that these 4 games are from massive companies? with way way way more funds than hirez
    paladins isn't the only game having issues since covid19, far from it, that had to happen, more people on the internet overall means more issues
    so surely huge companies might have spent quite a bit on additional servers or whatever to prevent these issues

    if you guys don't like paladins, if you can't handle the issues that come along with playing a game not as big as games from power houses, then gtfo and go play OW or whatever
    stop saying hirez don't care and stuff like that, it's simply not true and they are surely trying their best for their community

    honestly this community isn't helping at all, did you ever, for one second, tried to think about how hirez employees can feel when thousands of people are saying this kind of stuff while they are freakin trying their best, they are freakin humans, and they ain't hundreds working on a single game unlike in bigger companies
    imagine trying to compare paladins or any game in beta from hirez with valorant a game coming from one of the most successful video game company, that is developing what, 2games? they must be way more working on that game and have way more money to develop it properly



  • @TangAce

    "paladins isn't the only game having issues since covid19, far from it, that had to happen"
    What other games? Are you sure it is player count related? How do you know? Hires hasn't posted anything about it. They're talking about ping spikes in England and server backups. Nothing about player count and server load. Which is a strange problem to have when AWS and other hosting providers can scale your server needs dynamically, on the fly. Who has server capacity issues in 2020? Do you think they have servers in their basement and need to go out and buy a couple more?

    But you are right. There has been an increase in players march and april. New players new revenues. But they're not staying. Last 30 days have seen a sharp decline.

    "game in beta" You don't get to hide behind that label when you have monetised your game for over 3 years.
    But ok. It's beta. How about some minimum of communication. Nope. They're not even acknowledging the problem.
    If they did, it would make it easier to wait for a fix. But they don't. They talk about lag spikes and how they fixed it. Which I'm sure they did. But that wasn't the problem. The problem persists.

    "then gtfo and go play OW or whatever" Yes. That is what people will do. Not because you told them to, but because the game is unplayable. Until the game has to few players to be financially viable for hires and it shuts down. Which means you want have a place to fanboy anymore. Do you want this? I don't.

    @YouSmellNice

    TangAce says almost nothing i can agree with but this post is spot on. If the game sucks so bad just go play something else.

    • Either its got you hooked so badly that you cant leave it even when its running like trash

    • Or you just like to cry and blame all the lost games on bad lag

    Either way its not a job and you do not have to show up to play. I would like some of the things fixed and i agree that there are some issues, however crying post about Hi Rez not giving a shit is not going to help any one.

    Then there is the fact that i play the game with no issues. How can it be laggy for someone in my match and not for me if its Hi Rez servers issue as we are both in the same match on the same server?
