Ping/Route issues to Achaea last 24 hours or so

AmranuAmranu Member Posts: 735 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
Looks like routing to Achaea is messed up for some of us. My average ping has skyrocketed 5x over the last 24 hours, and a traceroute seems to suggest that my traffic is being routed to Europe and back. I know I've seen at least one other player that this is happening to. Any idea on if this can be fixed?

    Depending on where the issue is, you might need to talk to your ISP or they might need to talk to their intermediate/backbone ISP. In the past I've found issues like this are usually resolved within a couple of days when enough people complain and/or the offending node is addressed

    Yeah, I'm in Canada and this issue is also happening for @Atalkez (or was earlier today) and he's nowhere near me geographically, so just thought it would be worthwhile to bring attention to on this end. Also routes are broadcast from downstream from my understanding so this is definitely something that IRE should bug their provider about.

    Makes sense. I haven't touched anything networking related in years so I'm a bit hazy on the details

    Confirmed that this routing issue exists independently of my connection. See the same thing using digitalocean servers in New York and San Francisco. @Ictinus dunno if this is your thing or not, but figured I'd tag you.

    From a server in San Francisco:

    99 problems and the ping is one.

    100ms is pretty high for me, actually. I usually chill around 60-80ms.

    From NZ. Never actually tracert'd Achaea before, oddly.
    Anywhere from ~150-195ms or so is what I've gotten for as long as I can remember.

    For the record, nobody's being routed through Europe (who shouldn't be). You're looking at cached location data. The IPs that people are calling European have been reallocated in the past few days, and are to a few North American data centers. At a quick glance, nothing looks out of the ordinary on any of these tracerts (nor any of the ones sent in privately).

    We've had some reports of intermittent bursts of network lag (which I'll pass along to the right folks), but bursts of network lag that aren't gamewide (or at least simultaneously affecting several players) are very likely intermittent ISP issues, and out of our hands.

    I diagnosed my problem, and it’s because I live in effin’ Australia. 😆

    I wonder if people are, say, checking inventory with, say, 250 individual tarot cards in them. Not that I know that would cause lag @Phaestus .....
  • AmranuAmranu Member Posts: 735 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    @Phaestus one thing we noticed yesterday in discussions on Discord is that a lot of players are seeing 3-5x the ping to Achaea than to any other IRE game. This is a pretty recent change and has been consistent since I posted this (I personally see 17ms to Aetolia and 84ms to Achaea, whereas I used to see something closer to 17ms to Achaea)

    There's definitely _something_ up.

    I'm going to go ahead and document this here. This is from a vps I have been using in Chicago to proxy in recently (it reduces my ping time to Achaea by ~30ms which is nice). Since it's in Chicago it's extremely close to IRE's servers, but you can see the route and ping times are wildly different between games. In this case I'm comparing Aetolia ping/route to Achaea:

    Latency on Achaea is going to be somewhat higher than other IRE games (around 20-40ms extra for most players). It's entirely expected, and it's not something we can change or fix.

    Why is this?
