Hard to visit from Oversea!
« on: 11:21:58 - 06/02/09 »
As the topic described, the site is sometimes hard to visit (I live in Mainland China). Where are your servers located? I wonder if there're some way to improve my experience.

the server is located in france (paris). by "hard", you mean timeout or lags?
we have some chinese players as well, dunno if they are having the same problem.

I've been playing the game from both Taiwan and Hawaii, and both without any problem. It is highly likely that your issue lies with your internet service provider in mainland China.

Maybe I shall say it was timeout. Probably caused by my ISP. Will a proxy server improve my visit speed?

Your ISP may block your connection to the server.

You will probably have a better time trying a proxy.

I enjoyed playing Estiah in London, Paris, Athens, and Rome while touring Europe recently with no problems!  Woo.  I live in Edinburgh.  Just had to get used to the damn fluctuating reset times.   :P

I've noticed most of the ISP issues seem to originate either in mainland China, or in Southeast Asia.
As said, it could be timeout issues (really, it does happen) or as has been indicated, traffic/blocking on the ISP side.

A proxy will alleviate the connection issues, but speed may be impacted.

Well, I play from Indonesia and recently I'm having this problem, too ...
I'm experiencing lags and/or delays when playing Estiah ...
And it just happens after the last patch, if I'm not wrong ...

Or maybe it's just my ISP problems?

It's because it's China.

During the Beijing Olympics, many internet sites that feature chatting, forums, and group discussions, were banned by the government.  I don't know the reason why (probably something to do with conspiracy), but on another game that I play, a few players that live in China were not allowed on, and were inactive for a few months.

I was able to play Estiah fine when I was in HK these two months in the summer, however.

When I was in Hong Kong for renew my HKID, I was able to play Estiah as well.

It's most likely ISP issue.
