Thread: South Asia Server (Pakistan, India, Sri lanka and others)

    In fact it does, when the Malaysian server is not messing around its ping is about ~120'ish & I feel the delay has reduced, game feels more responsive. What we need is either the route be fixed to Singapore (SG servers are stable) or addition of Middle East servers.

    So, it looks the packets go to starhub's US servers first and then it goes to Singapore. It is weird packet routing. But perhaps explains well, why ping is most of the time same to US and Singapore from India. Can valve do anything for this?

    Pretty sure valve can't do anything, which was my point. This route optimization is done by ISPs (i beleive) and valve as such cannot do anything.

    Awight! But Neither does ISP monitors it by its own(Customer having the servers have to request them). The valve Can't exactly do by itself but can definitely ask its Internet Service Provider to Reroute as they would be a big Corporate Customer for them. So we still demand the Valve people to consider taking some practical steps on it.

    India & Pakistan are both linked to the world via Singapore (Mainly). So any that has to go out ...has to go through it Cuz they are what you call tier 1 ISPs.

    @Valve & ALL
    So in generaly this process is started when the corporate customer demands for it. And It goes from the Users(GAMER) Side to the Server(VALVE) Side. Each Router/hop is statically told to route and not but automatic route exports by EBGP. This adds processing to the routers over the world. And thus charged a bit from the requester! But that shouldn't be and issue with Valve being a responsible Business oriented Company!
