    I'll quote my little guide to detect cause and get rid of lag spikes from some posts ago:

    the problem is jitter related (variance of the ping).

    1. Ping your router for a significant amount of time (find your gateway with ipconfig from cmd, it may look as, I'll assume it actually is cmd>ping -t, 5 min will be enough)
    Check for ping spikes and try to get if they are periodical.
    If they are strongly periodical the following may dramatically help you, try those anyway:

    i) OPTIONAL: Disable Nagle Algorithm, you can find a guide here. Reboot.
    ii) Download wlan optimizer, disable autoconfig and background scan, run it.

    Give it another test. Are your lag spikes there again? If the answer is yes go to 2. If not go to 3

    2. Disable wifi, connect via ethernet. Retest your router ping.
    Most likely you will not have lag spikes.
    If you have not lag spikes your problem is caused by wifi connection.

    Try to change your router communication channel: there will be 13 channels avaible, choose one avoiding 6th and 11th. They are the most frequented.

    Reconnect on wifi to give your router another test. If you have no lag spikes go to 3.
    If you have lag spikes we have bad news, you have to play on eth0.
    Connect to eth0,proceed to 3.

    3. Final test.
    Ping for some times (cmd>ping -t, 5 min) and assure yourself you have no terrible lag spikes more.
    Try a game, in the most of cases you wont experience lag anymore.

    No one give a single fuck of your game advice there. Stop whining and carry the team out of shit yourself.

    how about this? I checked my ping, my router, I even ping and no lag spikes coming up but whenever I'm in the game, it returns 300 ping or even higher

    103.28.x.x servers are fucked. if u see this ip in your console, dc. wait till you get a game in 103.10.x.x server.

    I've noticed this a lot lately too. Outside dota I get an average of 29ms on

    Inside dota it's well over 100... Typically in the 300 range.

    so, I guess there's no fix for this?

    i hope they will come up a solution on this. i always check my ping on and i always have good connection but when i play dota2 my ping is always high. i am forced to use some trial version of wtfast just to lower the ping alittle bit. it is not like this before. even when i am playing left for dead 2. my ping is 250+ even with good internet connection. valve problem? sea?

    Guys,the problem here is, we're getting routed to somewhere in the US rather than the direct X>SEA server path because of the way they advertise their routes.

    There is NO real solution for it unless the routes are optimised from either sides.Its a wait-game.
