Asia-Pacific SWTOR Players: Post Your Ping

The local servers are live and from hanging out in general chat on the PvE server Dalborra, the bulk of people are more than happy with their ping times compared to US servers.

Although ping times can be impacted by dozens of different things, I thought it’d still be interesting to get people to post their ping times, particularly those outside of NSW/Victoria in Australia.

We’d particularly love to hear from any Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesian, Japanese or Malaysian players on whether the Asia-Pacific servers are any better for you. Please post your ping and geographical location in comments!


  1. 45ms in coffs harbour and loving it, 280 on US I can’t wait for Xfers

  2. Brisbane – ~55ms on all 3 servers through Internode

  3. 30-50 range, Canberra

  4. 30 ping  100KM north of Brisbane

  5. 25-30ms (Brisbane – Iinet)

  6. 19 from Sydney

  7. 78ms, Perth (iiNet)

  8. 7ms-20ms. Sydney (Telstra Cable)

  9. Tim Buchalka says

    30-44 ms, Telstra cable-Adelaide

  10. Rick Duff says

    120ms Perth, Vivid Wireless.

    It appears if you are on the Telstra Backbone, you will be getting the fastest pings due to the minimum amount of Hops.


  11. 34 optus cable ipswich qld

  12. 97 – 118 ms , Christchurch NZ

  13. usually ms has been cut to 1/4 of what we had
    from my guild we had ms as low as 10 but other were up to 80
    still a massive difference compared to the US based ms we were getting

    its nice seeing the animation hit that little quicker esp in pvp

  14. 50 – 78 ms.
    The server is great but in some ways that heightens the pain of their newest kicker.
    Coupled with the server launch we were informed that an email would be sent to qualifying people a few days later outlining server transfer information. I took this as meaning that when we got the email we could then get the process started.
    The sad part is now I’ve just noticed the info about the new server launch on the SWTOR website has one of the most discouraging sentences I have seen so far:

    “Qualified players in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, or Singapore, will be offered one-time free character transfers to Asia Pacific servers for a limited time period in late April. No specific date has been confirmed at this time.”

    Late April! I don’t want to play on the US servers now after experiencing the response from the Oceanic Server so now will be forced to either keep playing as I did or start some new alts as I don’t really consider re-rolling to be an acceptable and viable option.

  15. 10 – 30 ms – Telstra Cable, Sydney

  16. ~60 ms – ADSL Portland VIC

  17. 10-20 ms Sydney

  18. 48-60ms – Adelaide with Adam Internet

  19. I get about 200-250ms from Tokyo

  20. Just tried Dalborra… getting 230-330ms to Hobart (Netspace). 🙁

  21. 99-120ms Perth iinet.

  22. It’s bouncing around a bit, but anywhere from 40-80ms from Hobart (Internode)

  23. Shanghai 180ms

  24. 60-440ms random spiking from Hobart 🙁
    Telstra ADSL2

  25. 40ms. ADSL2+ in Brisbane

  26. Nathaniel says

    From Christchurch and on Vodafone, haven’t tried it yet(forgot it was launching today >.<) but my 2 brothers, who are on Taiwan and Philippines respectively, they were getting an average of 400+ms and 700+ms, respectively. They both have good connections, so not sure why this is. On average, we get about an average of 200ms on the shadowlands server, an East Coast(that's from NZ, Taiwan and the Philippine) server. Are Aussies the ones getting good MS? There's only one other from Southeast Asia I think that's posted their MS here, and it's in the 100's wait, Shanghai is in North East…still, Asia Pacific, Asia Pacific…

    • South East Asian ISP’s are routing to LA>Sydney almost doubling the ping response time. You need to contact their network admins to reroute traffic for SWTOR via the Sydney>Perth international link which should reduce the latency by quite a lot. Probably looking at 100-200ms from SEA.

  27. i haventhad the time to play yet but howmany people are on the server Dalborra and isthere a waitin time?

  28. Kate DiBella says

    I was getting ~30-60ms last night on Internode ADSL2+ from Melbourne (on poor ‘light’ Gav Daragon).  Never got below around 120ms on US West servers (Vrook Lamar), so I am very happy.  Didn’t realise just how bad it was, until I got to see the cutscenes right after talking to the relevant NPCs…and not missing any bits!  Dalborra seems the only one to have a waiting time, both last night and right now.  Nowhere near as long as some of the early-access ones back in December, though (<5mins instead of 30+ mins).

  29. 10-30ms Sydney – ISP is TPG

  30. Roonerspism says

    20-30 ms.
    Melbourne, Telstra 100 Mbps cable.
    Typcailly get about 180 to 200 on Wound in the Force US West Coast server.

  31. Sitting comfortably on 80ms on an ADSL1 connection south of Perth, WA.

  32. Average of 30ms, Western Sydney (via a Telstra exchange)

  33. 38-46ms in Boronia (Melbourne)

  34. between 40-60 Rocklea (Brisbane) QLD with Internode.

  35. between 40-60 Rocklea (Brisbane) QLD with Internode.

  36. Mike Conway says

    60-85 IInet ADSL2+ Perth WA

  37. 40-60 Wollongong, NSW (TPG)

  38. 30-50 – Sydney

  39. What ”
    Rob1003″ said

  40. Marceline says

    30-70 ms in Malvern, Melbourne.

    Anyone know what effect the NBN will have on the ping in other locations around Australia?

  41. 350-500 ms Singapore.

    For US west coast servers i am getting 140 – 249

  42. Danielwinoto says

    Indonesia 390-450

  43. I usually sit at 72-120 on dalborra…….tried harbinger last night….wasnt impressed with the 330-400 ping i was getting.
