Hmm, we filtered the JINX router earlier today, and it should now be going via Napafrica

What server are you tracing to ?

If everyone has the issue, it sounds central. Could just be equipment needing an upgrade (or faulty). Better than upgrading a backhaul, I guess :D

Eish, I don't know what to do I'm trying to play BFV on local servers using my PS4 and the ping seems similar to an international server, 160ish the last few days .

Did they not remove local servers a couple months ago due to them being so low populated ?

Blizzard seems to have fixed their routing, ping back to normal again

So, the issue is that i3d has pulled that server back to a location somewhere far away, or they have some strange return routing, but they are still advertising the IP at local exchanges, such as JINX.

We hand over traffic to them from our network at JINX, and from there we are not entirely in control from that point further on.

They made a change, and we didn't, so it's worse now, but it's not our fault, if that makes sense ?
I would appreciate if you can PM me your IP address, so I can just check the source as well.

However it seems from the Afrihost trace that the NAPAfrica path is better, which probably means i3d is neglecting their JINX peering, so I will chat to our BGP engineers to rather prefer the NAP route, which brings me to my next point...

I'm really starting to dislike JINX (not specifically for this reason), and think that as a future policy we're just going to generally weight JINX lower. It just seems like in general peers care more about their NAP activities, than JINX.

We will fix this for you.
@TheRoDent thanks really appreciate it that you are trying to help. I didn't have time to test this earlier today but the high Rocket League ping on local servers is still an issue.
PM'ing you now with my details

PUBG not blizzard are they?
My comment is more in line that it's good that blizzard sorted out their servers / routings and it would be nice that it was the same for playing PUBG on the EU servers on AWS.

Seems like @ThatGuy_ZA might be in the same boat...

Goes back to the AWS using the east coast cables for certain Europe destinations.
