Packet loss

Hey there

I've been suffering from crazy amount of packet loss recently, the symptoms only appeared recently in the past 2 days, yesterday is wasn't too bad it was playable, but today (21st) it's become unplayable

I'm currently in the process of elimination by running ping -n 50 78.129.153.14 to the London server and asking multiple of my friends to do the same, to single out if its my ISP, the game servers or just my network.

I've posted the ping test results over 50 times down below.

Has anyone else been having packet loss recently?

My results:

Ping statistics for 78.129.153.14:
Packets: Sent = 50, Received = 41, Lost = 9 (18% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 27ms, Maximum = 44ms, Average = 28ms

My friends result (also in the UK):

Ping statistics for 78.129.153.14:
Packets: Sent = 50, Received = 43, Lost = 7 (14% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 13ms, Maximum = 102ms, Average = 23ms

I also ran this on my mobile network and the result was something similar

Packets: Sent = 50, Received = 45, Lost = 5 (10% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

Please use WinMTR (here's a guide) for this.

Unlike Ping, this will display the route and where packet loss begins.
I would do, but it seems like the website refuses to connect
Oh. Here's an alternative download location.
Looks like it's mostly at the game server where the drops are happening?

Could you please run the test until ~500 echo requests are sent to each hop?

On this one the most that was sent to a single hop was 101.
Sure thing I'll have to do it after i get back from work.

Check back in about 5 hours or so
Hey there

I just got back and ran the test as requested.

The results are posted below.

It seems as if the issue as of off-peak time (22:23) seems to have resolved itself, maybe its an off-peak thing and there has been a high volume of players as of recent?
