    I was the last couple days getting to Lake Austin from Kentucky, but in that case I know it was alter.net (as usual) at fault as my traceroutes were hitting a router with about 10% packet loss as it was being routed through Chicago on its way to LA.

    Of course, many (if not most) of the times I heard people complaining about east coast lag, it turned out to be alter.net going into DC having issues.

    Are they really that much worse on maintenance and redundancy compared to the other network services?

    Everything is fine until Alternet, same as every other time I've had unplayable lag.

    Yes, Move about 5 steps stop and jump back 2, Move over corpses to loot and then get pushed back one or two spaces off the corpse. While moving run about 5 steps, stop, run 5 steps , stop. Great when you are fighting Paragons. Move to position, jump back, paragon targets, OOOOO!

    Been this way ever since last patch.

    Imagine this on a constant, widespread basis...interspersed with random downtime and frequent reverts.

    Welcome to 1997-1999.

    Hope it's fixed for everyone though.

    Sounds like a bad hop at a NOC, perhaps a switch has gone out. :( I looked at my pings and they are all the same as always.

    Every time they fix one thing they break 5 others its job security i guess but having wicked lag on game made for dial up is infuriating to say the least and to make matters worse the trouble ticket asked for a ton of info which is fine but the thank you for playing dark age of camelot wasn't funny. Still lagging like crazy hopefully they will get it fixed soon. On another note my internet connection downloaded 14 gig from guild wars 2 in Texas in a amazing 1 hour 12 mins

    Traceroutes please? One is nice, but more is better.

    Confirming - at Chicago, I'm hitting something that's running outrageous packet loss on alter.net.

    This is going from the Ohio Valley region to the West Coast shards.

    0.ae3.XL3.CHI13.ALTER.NET 152.63.66.73

    Varies from minimum of 3% packet loss, with short spasms up to 20%+

    I tried connecting to Atlantic, and the path goes through the SAME BAD IP.

    So I can't vouch for anything closer to Fairfax causing issues, because of the bad IP being in the way.

    Hmmm.... that ALTER.NET seems to show up a lot in threads.
    Last time we had a big lag problem several people mentioned it and I remember it from my own traceroutes.
