How is latency in servers closest to you?

Just curious to see how things work for you in general. Mention your connection speed and where you/the server is so we know.

closest servers give me 80+ ping, but lag depends on the amount of players in the server, rarely I have had less than 100-120 on 64 ppl server. 20 mbps connection.

Even on tripwire official servers in UK I can't get less than 112 with 64 ppl.

Closest servers to me give me about 70-80 as long as there are only around 40 or less players in the server.
Once the number of players gets up to 45+ every server I have been on starts lagging big time and pings go to 150-200 and up for everyone.

DuckSoup in Seattle (170 miles away from Portland) pings 23ms in Steam server list, and 50ms in-game. That's pretty damn good considering I used to ping UT servers across the street at 40 ms with DSL.

I have a wireless router and use the commandlet:
Code:
ping 192.168.1.1 -n 50 -l 65500
to make sure lag is not on my end (sometimes the transmission is FUBAR). 50ms is the best value I've had so far, but whatever the value, it's about the same as the latency with the nearest server.

I can play on some servers in Dallas with latency around 80ms.

From what I've seen so far, the latency in this game is equivalent to other games with respect to geographical distance. BFBC2 servers in the same cities give me the same pings as RO2.

the closest and most likely the only populated server in asia is a japanese server which its ping could range from 100-200. the overseas bandwidth from my ISP is alledgelly 20Mbps max

100Mbps broadband, closest server is 20ms, but it is too early now for any of them to be full enough to check ingame latency

Been better servers come out for Aus/NZ players since RO2 came out. Far better servers than with RO1. Most ping on servers near me are between 50-100. Lowest ping server near me in RO1 was about 150-200.

The closest server from where I am (in Manila) is in Japan and I get 150-160ms and sometimes even 90, way before the previous patch (the one before this new one). Now I get like 260-300ms on any server, including all the Asian ones.

Best ping servers for me are the tripwire ones, but no one plays on them. So I am stuck playing on 150+ping servers if I don't want to play with 1-2 people

Ping ping 60. Ingame about 100. Which is very good for me since I'm using 3G :(
But mostly I play on servers which have about 120-200 ping ingame (closest server is rarely the most attractive).
