Why does it lag every single night, or as people say, "it's nodewar time, normal to be laggy". This has never been the issue when I played a year ago, doesn't matter if it's nodewar time, it never lag. 
Why is this issue isn't being addressed by PA team at all? I have submitted report before and they brushed off as if it's my PC, my ISP, my dogs and cats, my neighbours fault, and it's never the BDO server's fault. I even showed you my Pingplotter and recording of how my internet works fine on anything else besides the BDO server's IP where it showed massive packet loss on Pingplotter. This issue has been getting worse for the past few days and I am sick of this. K1 server usually free from the "node war lag" but that doesn't seems to be the case anymore. What did PA do this time? 

Additionally tag: Packet Loss, Night Time, Node War, Lag, Black Desert Online, Pearl Abyss, Mr J. 

Update on 20 February 2024, the fix is to disable IPV6 on your ethernet properties (Internet Protocol Version 6). 
1. My speculation is IPV6 is not stable at night even or during the day time sometimes. 
2. Public IP vs Private IP, Public IP can resolve the issue due to lesser "filters" and more direct connection to relevant servers. 

These were the 2 factors helped me in resolving my high packet loss and high ping issue at night time. 

Second day, 21 February 2024, there packet loss is stil there, but it is bearable with IPV4 instead of IPV6. It seems to be randomly occur, sometimes the lag/packet loss disappeared after changing character, another time it will come back. 
So is the problem with ISP? or BDO server itself? Or both? 69 wonder of the world

Update on 23 February 2024. The problem still persist, only that it happens randomly, sometimes when I switch server and character, it's bearable, but sometimes not playable at all as in PVE. I have send message to Unifi about this and see what kind of solution they will come up with. Or none at all.

everytime there an maint, the ISP fak dap. happen everytime. dont play the game let go DOTA or Rust

even at fishing it suddenly reconnecting for 30-180sec after success reconected this loading turn into this and the rest is same as the 1st picture...every1 a dummy modal with class name and infinity number.


The most obvious thing is when you ping other game or site it has 0 loses or time-out, when you type ping at BDO SEA it turn out 4loses/time-out = i think this is server ISP spike, or known as D-DOS issue when a bug appear at server.

The connection problem started today for me.

Yes it is the ISP having massive packet loss connecting to bdo's server. Of course the connection is working fine on every other thing. Just be playing something else other than bdo now lol.

Btw, vpn like mudfish works fine for me but I'm bored of playing the game with constant 150-200 RTT. The delay is unplayable so ima just stay off till it gets fixed.
