Overwatch american server extreme packet loss

Hello.

Since yesterday i've been experiencing huge packet loss while playing on american servers. Not all their IPs are affected, but every other server i'd connect to would be unplayable because of the packet loss. I am sure the problem has to be somewhere in the routing to those servers. A bad node or something. i performed a tracert and here are the resutls:

Tracing route to 24.105.40.72 over a maximum of 30 hops

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms routerlogin.net [192.168.0.1]
2 9 ms 11 ms 6 ms cpc2-pres18-2-0-gw.18-3.cable.virginm.net [92.232.6.1]
3 7 ms 10 ms 7 ms pres-core-2b-xe-723-0.network.virginmedia.net [62.255.6.17]

9 19 ms 20 ms 19 ms m674-mp2.cvx1-b.lis.dial.ntli.net [62.254.42.162]
10 18 ms 19 ms 18 ms ae-11.r24.londen12.uk.bb.gin.ntt.net [195.66.224.138]
11 108 ms 106 ms 111 ms ae-5.r24.nycmny01.us.bb.gin.ntt.net [129.250.2.18]
12 108 ms 107 ms 107 ms ae-1.r07.nycmny01.us.bb.gin.ntt.net [129.250.3.181]
13 * * * Request timed out.
14 * xe-0-7-0-27.r07.nycmny01.us.ce.gin.ntt.net [129.250.201.222] reports: Destination net unreachable.

I wonder why do tracert stops at Colorado, because the target IP address is located in California?

Here's the screenshot of ingame graph when it happens (if im connected to the bad server, it stays bad throughout the game).

Also having the same issue but with League of Legends. My gameplay is fine from EU - EU servers, but my EU - NA server gameplay (what i usually do) has a ridiculous amount of lag due to packet loss.

Here's a screenshot of a good, stable american server that i connected to same night. I really dont know why one would have such horrible packet loss and the other would be perfectly fine

Re: Overwatch american server extreme packet loss

Just wanted to let you guys know that problem has been solved. It was probably a faulty node somewhere in US that they have fixed on tuesday.
