Extremely high ping on rust?

Hello, i don't know if this is the correct place to ask but i get extremely high ping on rust (400-1000) on rust but ONLY on rust . my computer is definitely good enough to run the game as i played 2 months ago with a different ISP. However, ever since i changed my ISP to plusnet its been acting this way and i don't know what to do. On every other game i get between 30-40 ping so i don't know why its happening, i talked to the server admins but its not a server side issue.

Re: Extremely high ping on rust?

Btw this is the best place to ask for anything gaming related Tongue You might need to have this checked, i get around 20-25 on rust altho i stopped playing it 1 month ago as it become boring.

Thos pings you talk about are very high even for non eu servers, id have it checked over

i did ask in live chat and did a traceroute but they didn't find anything wrong on their side, agent said it was most likely server related even though i get this sort of lag on all rust servers, whether they are official or community servers.

Re: Extremely high ping on rust?

 

Actully when i think on 2 weeks ago i was in rust and i was rubberbanding like hell, when i asked the other players in game they said they were fine.. my ping at the time was not high but i was getting some rubberbanding maybe our issues are related ? i never actully thought too much of it because i dont really play it much .. found it boring tbh. Are you on the new network by any chance ? is it worth plusnet giving you a static ip to see if it changes anything ?

Re: Extremely high ping on rust?

You are maybe more affected than me by network issues then, ive just tried rust and my ping is normal 18 - 25 on eu servers.

Plusnet put me on a static ip so maybe if i was on shared again i may have same pings as you, since being on static ip ive not had as much rubberbanding in games.. theres work being done tomorrow so hopefully a fix will come from it otherwise many customers are going to be pished off.

Re: Extremely high ping on rust?

Re: Extremely high ping on rust?

Hey i've looked into this quite a bit myself. here is a post that i've made on steam community to try and get some solutions but still no answers.

 


Okay i have played this game for a while now, however as of late i have been struck with a huge problem. I can play on any server and not get any ping issues although if i am near anyone or on a highly populated server my ping will spike up to over 12k and leave me with a 2 minute delay period: as you can imagine it is impossible to play a survival game with that kind of delayed response.
I don'r have this issue with any other games nor have i suffered with this form of network error before. I have reinstalled the game, validated cache, changed firewall settings and even tried port forwarding to solve the issue. I have connected to the servers via cmd "tracert" with no ping issues at all, i will put my computer spec below and if anyone has any idea how to fix this please could you let me know.
Thank you

I hope this can help, and i hope that some plus.net rep views this. The issue appears to be when connecting to other users, a recent update in rust causes you to only load other players on the server when they get to a certain distance and this is what causes the issue. However the only ISP that seems to have issues with this are plus.net.
