World of Warcraft Pings

my wow gaming experience has been awful lately.

i regularly get disconnected, have lag spikes, high latency and yet when i ask in guild if anyone else is suffering from similar problems, they're not.

i know blizzard isn't (always) blameless. i'm looking on these forums to see how anyone else is fairing with wow and if it looks bad, i'll probably be leaving plusnet very shortly.

Yeah same for me guyz, mainly for the last week or two its been up and down, but now its constantly high. Pings between 300 ish when im in a low populated area, but once i go do something like molten core with 40 ppl my ping (like last night) was averaging 1300ms+

A trace route isnt clear though in this situation as it comes up with low pings:

Its feeling like that problem Plus.net had back in january where alot of people had high latency in the evenings (although this is 24/7), i'm guessing some sort of filtering port on plus.net is causing the problem.

i'm on the terenas server. nothing at my end has changed hardware or software and it used to play just fine.

i know blizzard patched recently and it was awful the day after that, but guildies are all fine now.

my tracert shows 25ms all 9 hops right up to what i'm assuming is blizzards boundary firewall/screening router (whatever it is) but i'm guessing if traffic is shaped, this probably wouldn't show up in echo requests? i say that because no-one else complains of latency and when i do, tracert still shows 25-30ms all the way to hop 10.

I started getting this yesterday. It went up to almost 9k ms at one point! I don't think it's PlusNet, I can ping websites etc just fine, the problem is only with WoW. I've tried rebooting my router which doesn't seem to help. On the whole I usually get very few problems with latency - this is very frustrating!

Here are some screenshots of a Tracert they asked me to run, and at the same time the ingane latency

Just out of interest does anyone get random disconnects that arent actually disconnects? (connection definately not going down and not losing sync)

It appears that the connection just freezes up while in game? you get disconnected then before you know it you can just connect again straight away without issue, this happening say 3 or 4 times an night only in the evening?

I've had a similar problem since yesterday morning - high latency with even higher spikes, plus a lot of random disconnects. It was perfectly fine on Friday evening, and every other net service including other games still functions as normal. All the time, my net connection stays up and other things such as streaming radio aren't interrupted - it's just the game I disconnect from. I can reconnect again, but straight into the lag again.

It's just WoW that's suddenly become afflicted, and I'm not clued up enough to tell if it's ISP or Blizzard related. A colleague suggests it may be some P2P tech that the game uses which is suddenly being blocked, but again I can't say if this is right.

I've been getting disconnected but from the entire internet, while remaining sync'd.

Yes, I used to accept this as part of online gaming but recently it happens every other night.

It usaly happens around my raiding time. 6pm ish till 9pm ish - 11pm.
