When I play on my own, my ping is between 250-300ms and was playable, but as soon as I join a pub game or open my game to the public my ping goes up to between 350-500ms with spikes of 10-15sec at 600-800ms. But (2-3 hours ago) now when i play alone my ping is as high as pub games. There were instances late last night and earlier today when I played a pub game with no ping problems. But 95% of the time it's unplayable.
Me and my roommate has played Battlefield 3 together and have no problems (on local servers, meaning it's not our router/line, I think).
Also which ISP as stated above? Me and my roommate are with Afrihost and I know MTN and Afrihost merged 2-3 days ago...so it might be that if you are with either Afrihost or MTN.
I just hope this resolves itself somehow. What can we exactly do? I'm sure Blizz won't do anything since we're the minority. Do you have other RSA friends that play D3? I have a couple, but they stopped playing like 4-5 months ago. I'm gonna ask them if they can just play/test the game for like 15min and see if they also get these rediculous pings.
Note that those results was from the weekend and have done a scaled down version of them right now again:
- I've just done a pingtest on pingtest.com to Germany (worst case scenario) and got a ping 285ms. (+ 50ms)
- Just played a game in Battlefield 3 on a German server and got a ping between 234-239ms.
- Just played Diablo 3 and got a ping of 400ms+ with fluctuations up to 800ms with insane lagging/rubberbanding.
I really don't know what to do anymore -_-
Before patch my latency was 50-60ms, now I am getting 60-70 in perfect case scenario, but it not last long untill it jumps at 300-400 then 1500+. I never know when it will jump. HC is imposible to play, I died i SC sveral times, fighting mobs in one room (at least I thought so :P) then suddenly dead in room before that.
I even called my ISP and ask them to check if everything is ok on my side (they tested all, from router to my connection in central), and they confirmed I am fine. On speedtest net my speed is also as it should be. Aslo any other game have no problems with ping/latency.
