I can see BF Vietnam is in the recognised list, but I get in of 130ms + all the time. I never used to get it, and it's not as if BFV is a new game, I'm not struggling to run it.

My download speeds are great, and on speedtest.net my ping comes out as sub 100ms all the time.

Any ideas?

Hi Andy.

If you could post up a tracert to the gaming server that would give us a pretty good idea where the slowdown is occuring.

Once we have that we'll take it from there.

Hi there.

Sorry for making a daft assumption.

Rather than reinvent the wheel I'll point you to our good friend Kitz's site, http://www.kitz.co.uk/tech/tracert.htm
where you'll find a very handy tutorial on running a tracert.

Have a read at that and then once your ready post up the results.

Any questions just shout. Smiley

OK, thanks for that.

I did a tracert to 2 of the servers I usually use, but I haves similar issues on all to be honest.

Hi,

it looks like you are connecting to a server in the US. If you use a UK one assuming everything else is OK you will get a much better connection.

Hope that helps,
