Some regulars, living in England, have told me that they had some high ping issues on the server (like permanent 200 instead of 30 or 40), and they did check their connections (pingtest) and everything seems alright but only have issues on the server.

Any pros with ideas of what they could do about it?

It would be a routing issue! "i reckon" a hop down on the way to routing to our ip address, its usually this that causes this issue and its very hard for anyone to get fixed, ie even with tickets with current hosts etc, as the server/hop in question will be owned by someone and have its own maintenance etc etc etc..

It usually sorts it self and only effects some usually..  Wink keep me updated though we can still make the host aware which in turn may make it better faster or not...

I believe Walnut got kicked for high ping yesterday, I think it was? Server browser claimed the latency to be around 40 when he was joining but as he got to the server it went above 200. He didn't seem to have the problem with other servers.

Yeah we've had these types of issues before. I agree with binksy that it's most like a routing type issue that normally sorts itself out after a few days. Unfortunately I don't think we can do anything to help it given it appears to be a server/hop before #1

I had this a little while ago and have it now.  Same to the HH servers which I think are on the same box.

Last time I did run a quick traceroute and see which hop the chokepoint was, I forget now but it was 2 or 3 hops before the server.

It'll fix itself and by itself I mean whenever which overworked support techie gets the ticket assigned to them and either re-routes the traffic or (scarily just reboots the router.


edit

here we go:

Hey Haytch, i think a few people are having this issue now just like you.

Heimerdinger, a THG regular, asked me to post this in hope someone could tell him if it's the same issue as the one you're talking about or if it's more specific to him?

Very similar Kaibz, so similar I would put money on it being the same issue.

There is a spike from a9 into the OVH servers similar to mine.

Interestingly I've just run a tracert now and the response is fine.  We shall see tonight when I fire up steam, it's been pretty unplayable for me on 200 ping.
