First of all, I truly appreciate that this discussion is still going on. For I believe that a lot of players
are interested in this topic.
Furthermore, I want to thank you all for your insightful criticism and suggestions.Vincenzo
, your input was especially valuable, because I understand the mechanics much better now. UpdatesServer
Some have suggested that the tropical paradise server is not the best data source. I am happy to announce that we have already
started to collect a new data set, featuring observations from the groupfighting server (We aim at 300+ observations).Fluctuations
I was always aware that the measured"Ping" in our data set is only a crude snap-shot. Seeing that fluctuations appear to be
much more important than previously suspected, we already discussed some adjustments. Currently, we try to model ping
as a stochastic process and we are also experimenting with certain probabilistic assumptions that we might impose on the point measurements. Future Outlook
As you can see, we try to conduct a way more comprehensive study on this issue. However, given that the gf server is not as frequented as the
tropical paradise server and the technical difficulties, this might take a very long time.
