League of Legends ping/latency spikes

Hello there:

Over to course of the last two months I have been getting server internet ping spikes when playing online games over my ethernet cable:

 

Ping usually goes from 30 to 200+ and happens on a variety of games including League of Legends, and Overwatch.

Another issue which causes high ping is when I am watching a youtube video when playing my games, but the ping still spikes even when there is no video running at all.

Re: League of Legends ping/latency spikes

Hi Kresterz,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

I'm sorry to read that you are experiencing high pings and latency during online gaming.

 

Looking at your connection, the line and hub have come back as fine. There are no faults reported and the network segment is running stable.

 

Do you get these ping spikes at all times of the day?

Have you tried gaming whilst the Hub 3 is in modem mode?

Are you able to post some ping/trace route results for us to take a look at please?

 

Let us know how you get on

Sam

Re: League of Legends ping/latency spikes

Hello Sam: 

It occurs during almost all hours of the day particularly worse during peak hours without fail. The ping tests to ping 104.160.141.3 (the League of Legends server) result in this, however it often becomes a lot worse. The best ping I've seen for a stable amount of time is 31 ping which is acceptable since the servers are in Amsterdam however it never stays at 31 ping and always fluctuates throughout the day. Even after midnight in the early morning there is high ping when you'd expect to see less people playing.

Re: League of Legends ping/latency spikes

Hiya Kresterz,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I appreciate the ping test that you posted, was that completed through modem mode?

 

Can you also post a trace route please to the same server?

 

I've taken another look at your connection for any issues, and everything has come back as fine.

 

Speak soon

Sam

Re: League of Legends ping/latency spikes

So for about a month my ping was holding stable at 30 but recently, actually on New Years day my ping began to do the same old high fluctuating ping again...

 

 

I am not in modem mode, however here are the traceroute settings

Re: League of Legends ping/latency spikes

Hello Kresterz,

 

Thanks for getting back in touch, hope you're well Smiley Happy

 

How has your connection been since we last spoke with you? I know this is fluctuating so it makes it difficult for us to see the issue by the time we get to your post.

 

Please drop me a PM (purple envelope, top right) if you still need help.

 

Take care.
