World of Warcraft High Ping

Hi, there currently seems to be a problem with Virgin connections to the World of Warcraft (battlenet) servers.

High latency and ping spikes. Seems I am not alone in having this issue as discussed here: https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17614572828?page=1

My internet speed and non battlenet latency is fine. This seems to be affecting mostly VM customers and some ISP's in Belgium.

This problem began at roughly 17:00gmt today (16/12/16)

Anyone else having this issue?

Re: World of Warcraft High Ping

Path of Exile the same thing, double the MS than normal and spiking heavy.

I bet they do nothing and to get the good ping you have the get the gamer package, just my tin foil head going nuts.

Please fix this

Not really, i have the same **bleep** in  Path of exile and also guardian of ember, I think it's related to relay that connects every ISP with europe main land. But still something VM needs to chase up.

Re: World of Warcraft High Ping

it depends on were its route if it goes out of virgin media servers there side its out of there hands it goes to a other isp does World of Warcraft go though other gamers as well to the main battlenet servers and go though the players back to you bt had this issue before and its still ongoing with them do you think this relay.
WoW use players and more players connections i think this is the issue to battle net thats why i don't play on WoW i never had this issue with final fantasy xiv online usa server
