League of Legends ping spikes

Whenever I play league I'm getting pings spiking to 150-170 every minute or so. It's been happening for weeks now. This is the only game it happens on. Super frustrating. Unplayable. Anyone having issues?

Re: League of Legends ping spikes

Hi Carthy_93, 

Sorry to hear you're having this issue. 

Can I ask how you're playing the game? Via WiFi or a wired connection?

Also what device are you using?

Re: League of Legends ping spikes

Suprised you've not been effected by the constant lack fo broadband for last week. Virgin been having a lot of issues. Check downdetector website when your ping spikes, might be related

Re: League of Legends ping spikes

Hi Carthy_93,

 

Thanks for getting back to us. Are you having any general connection issues, such as when browsing the internet, or is this only affecting League of Legends (LoL)?

 

It would be great if you could try running a trace route to the LoL servers in both router and modem mode and posting the results here so we can have a look at these. 

 

Thanks

Emma_C

Re: League of Legends ping spikes

Thanks Carthy_93.

 

As you've advised that this issue only occurs on League have you been able to approach their support team or check out their support pages to see what they would also recommend in this instance?

 

Thanks,

Tom_S

Re: League of Legends ping spikes

I have contacted League support and they advised me that the problem lies with my ISP. I remember a few years back VM had bad routing problems with the League servers but they got resolved. I'm wondering if its the same issue cropping up again.

Re: League of Legends ping spikes

The hub in router mode will not help you try it in modem mode and your game play will be better then think about get your own router with 1Gb ports.
