The lag on both EU servers is unplayable at the moment - when there is the lowest load.

 

Every 2-3 seconds the connection with the server will go and you will be left driving at full speed, unable to turn, unable to move at all or just unable to fire completely randomly. Its happening to all three of my platoon but seemingly not to the other team who are able to kill us even when we cannot do anything at all.

 

We are all from west Europe while players in eastern Europe seem to not be suffering the lag at all... 

 

it makes it virtually impossible to have a good game

Sometimes the turret suddenly turns automatically. Especially after the last update.

I've only had this since yesterday evening but the turret twitches while the connection is down and you cannot control the vehicle at all

Having exactly the same issue here, the game is barely playable. Others reported the same issues several days ago, so hopefully they're fixing it. 

 

Nothing better than seeing that your tank is approaching the edge of a cliff so you hit that "S" to slow down... but f*** you, get disconnected from the servers for 4 second.

 

Londonistan is not that far away from servers in EU, so I am certain it's nothing on my side.

i have never had this before but when i'm driving or stationery, my tank gets a mind of its own and i have no control of it, the tank isn't even moving, its just makes noises and the barrel is spazzes - but then 3 seconds later the tank 'teleports' to wherever i was driving. and i can continue for about 1 minute when it happens again. because of this i have been destroyed by many opponents and lost a hell load of credits.

Hi, this problem for me started a few days ago, sometimes the game would lag just slightly when going forward or backwards, now today the game locks up for 4 seconds randomly and the tank is uncontrollable and the MS jumps to 400MS and then freezes too, the turret of my tank is flicking left and right, I have checked with my service provider Virgin and they said there are no known faults they also asked me to check other games like Counter strike source and wow and they all work perfectly,so I feel perhaps Wargaming could help me or others out with this major problrm, the game isn't playable. please thanks.

46.18.174.130 or host-46-18-174-130.in-addr.ixreach.com <- doing a ping trace the dc's happen at this node for me at least which is hosted by ixreach in the united kingdom. This would explain why only a portion of players are affected in the game but I don't know if others not routing through here are also affected

 

Playing on EU2

So that's obviously a problem with the servers then. Run pingplotter and report back your results.

I just downloaded a Modpack for the first time so i assumed it was the mods affecting the game. 
I am experiencing all the problems stated above. 
I am also in the UK.

So I restarted my game and instead reconnected to EU1, still routing through the same ixreach node but its stable and there are no issues strangely enough

We all havent bought enough premium packets recently so WG had to downgrade their servers for cost reasons.

tinfoil hat on.

Little experiment I've been running these last few weeks

 

 

 

 

Not using premium or reserves = server and connection is fine, MM is fine

Not using premium but using reserves = server and connection fine, MM is against you

Using premium but not reserves = server and connection fine, MM is against you

Using premium and reserves = server and connection is terrible, no clue about MM because of disconnects.
