    Consistently pinging horrible to US East in the evening on verizon fios. I'm in the same city as the server and the trace route shows over 200 ping and in game it's 200-3000 ping fluctuating wildly. I used to ping 30 to these servers in dec, slowly gotten to the point where 100 ping is a "good" night. It appears valve's peer to telia sonera has major issues.

    So seems the routing is now done a bit better than it used to, as it is not going to TX anymore... But I still dont understand why it goes to NY after hitting VA, to go back to VA... And also why the ping in-game is so much higher than a regular ping/tracert to the server.

    i was previously playing on 4 mbps when i was receiving 75-120ms on EU servers. Lately i have switched to 10mbps and looks like my ms has increased. Its so full of crap when these ping increase after switching to a new ISP. Anyhow i used different apps to check if the ping goes down and gladly came across the best one (till yet) which is kill ping. It sure has kept me on consistent ping of 70ms and i really hope this stays consistent forever. *cheers*

    yeah I have to say im getting annoyed at this shit. dota's hardly playable on east. i've heard nothign about our situation in particular or what's being done to fix it.

    I guess it does make some sense that the ping is crap though, for some reason it routes from Florida through California, back to Texas, to reach Miami and go to Virginia... Go figure...

    if you type ping into chat you see a much lower value than if you type ping into console.

    the net graph gives u a still different value.

    the ping in your cmd/console gives u a different value from the other ones as well.

    idk do some research don't be a cunt.

    long story short: different ping commands have different methods of calculating your ping and so give different results.

    Yes, we all do.
    And if after 5-6 mins we find one, immediately after battle starts we get 3500+ pings and get disc, followed by safe to leave.
    Retarded as hell, and valve cares less.
