    I know its definitely my own problem, I have to play on satellite internet due to no other options being available in my area. I play with around 2k ping on any game I play and it is really awful.

    Can't do dan tests unless I go to my friends house. Then they are easy peasy! But here, yeah I will say they are all impossible. Would be up for a nerf.

    @Hardmuscle
    My friend lives a town over. They have mediacom. They don't have connection issues. We can't get anything other than satellite cause we live on the edge of town and live (unfortunately) 600 feet out of service range.

    edit: Btw, am not mad at anyone. I got a lot of patience dealing with my internet. Just thought I would share my situation and agree I would like a nerf too. Admitted that its entirely on me and my cruddy internet also!

    Got an intel i7 8700k with 64 gb of ddr4 ram with 2 GTX Titans and i have google fiber connection.

    Nope, must be my problem.

    you clearly aren't using the correct titans, i bet it will solve when you upgrade to a titan Xp, you're probably using a titan X pascal which isnt the same thing because nvidia sucks, would also advise against getting a titan V because nvidia forgot to add the sli thingy to those and what kinda uncultured swine doesnt run quad gpu setups :^)

    also i dont think the 8700k has enough cores for mabinogi

    Ouch @ satellite being your only option. We live like 1/4 of a mile out of service range of cable, but we at least get DSL. :(

    @Hardmuscle: What is the "latency" and "jitter" at the bottom of the speed test results from that website? My numbers were 95ms and 4ms... Is that relevant to any of this ping thing? (Sorry for my ignorance, lol. :# )

    Also on Satellite. Unless a better ISP can expand into my area my situation is incurable. :(

    Kinda neat results to share, my internet is being (subjectively) really great right now!

    CMD revealed to me, my ms connecting to speedguide.net and nexon.net (I tried both) were 600-2.7k ms. A super varied result! After a few lines however, it was just a bunch of connection timed out.

    But yea, anyone with normal internet should definitely try all the solutions Hardmuscle suggested. Every little bit helps, when it comes to latency, I say.

    so for the last year (almost) i been pretending the advancement tests do not exist.... for the simple reason that they are not friendly to those of us with high ping..... i just spent 5 minutes in chain slasher advancement test pinned against the wall by 30 bats.... i tried to kill them one at a time but NOOOO... they all agro at the same time and take turns hitting u so no skills for u! u cant even normal attack or even counterwm... this is ridiculous. as of now i only have dan1 skills only cause at higher ranks the lag is so much that skills don't load in time... anyways... I'm done with Dan tests until they decide to nerf them for our sake... i mean the advancements test should be about us being able to complete a task using the skills provided... not to pray to rngesus and pinGOD for the lucky break to do it when the stars align!

    please nexon nerf these tests! if not... then -removed- (Please do not dodge the language filter.)Dan tests.

    Who said Dan tests were supposed to be easy to complete? You think Phantasm doesn't have multi-aggro? If it means so much to you, go to your school or library just to do the Dan test (most schools and libraries have wicked fast internet).

    Bruh.. the main problem isn't that the Dan itself is really hard.. I mean of course you have to depend on RNG but beside of that.. our connection lags is what makes it really bad.
    Im using fiber connection with 100mbps+ and it's still hard because I have 220+ ping (EU).
    Obviously there are times where I (luckily) pass these tests but most of the time its 10x harder than people who have less than 50 ping.

    The tests were made and tested with nearly no lag in mind because Kr is much smaller than the Us, thus the test is a bit more difficult for us since we basically copy/paste content from Kr.

    The tests aren't impossible, unless you hover above 100 ms all the time. Seriously if it's not lag then you are probably missing something or just have a bit of bad luck, these tests are for proving your mastery with the skill. Not everything in this game should be cleared on the first try with mistakes made at every turn.

    Some suggestions seem possible, this is not one of them.

    GMNkeona ~ Look at these people being mad at me for offering them a solution to combat lag. Do you see denial of lag here, or simple replies offering information to enable these people to play the game in their painful situation?
    Report Post. It's a button. Use it instead of calling out GM staff to do what the VFMs do.
    On another note, you came into this thread in pretty much the exact same mindset as the last one where you brought this up. Learn from past mistakes from all parties there and maybe you wouldn't be needing to call for help like that.

    This is the reality of the situation. This is a South Korean made game built around South Korean grade internet, and this one in particular is heavily delay-dependent when it comes to the 'challenging' stuff. You'll just need to learn how to work around it, or opt out of content entirely until someone over there decides to listen to their international audience.

    @Buffalos - I already spoke with Katherz about this and was told it would be looked at on Monday (when they return to work), this and the episode ShouK tried to cause by answering a post made to me in another thread. I also already reported it to the so-called VFM we apparently don't have or is off for the weekend. (You are not one so why are you addressing me?) If you'd like to go down with it, be my guest. Otherwise, it would be best for you to buy a new calendar and to mind your own business. The reply being argued about in this thread is the farthest thing from a denial of lag anyone can possibly get, and if Liyeta's problem had already been solved they would not have come here to moan about it again. Trolling me doesn't change what happened in this thread nor the clarity of it.

    The reality of the situation is those people who live in other countries need to stop complaining about it. This is NA not EU - lag is imminent.
