    Is it just me? I am based on the west and have always connected to Broadswords amazon based west coast servers with a very low ping (average 18-22) over the last 3 or 4 days my ping has been exceed 200 and in some cases exceeding 300 when trying to enter dungeons etc. To verify it was not my connection I pinged the server from 3 different ISPs (Fibre & Cable) and both were averaging 190-220. I then pinged the east coast shards and was average 80-100. I did contact Broadsword earlier in the week.

    This was the list i was basing my info from;
    US West Coast [@ Amazon Web Services N. California, 54.241.0.0/16]

    54.241.143.216 Pacific
    54.241.139.41 Baja
    54.241.138.28 Napa Valley
    54.241.130.239 Sonoma
    54.241.143.226 Lake Austin
    54.241.143.221 Origin

    Do you have Comcast?

    I noticed every few weeks I get a day or two that comcast seems to just be over throttled. The last time I experienced this was the middle of last week, if that is when you experienced it as well it might be the server and not comcast as I originally thought...

    Where did you find those addresses? Can you link me or paste Atl, LS and GL as well

    I am about 30 miles north of the servers/EA Corp and right now I am doing 15ms to all West Coast come about 5PM PST it will drop down and depending on the weather (hot days like we been having) more people are on the internet than norm. Check your time and look at the weather to see if people are staying indoors and running ACs. So far no rolling brown outs but they are coming. I also turn on the TV to see how good cable TV is doing, if it is glitching bad I start getting a little lag on my cable internet also.

    Thanks for the tips, as of this morning I am still at 200-220ms. I contacted my ISP and they are looking into any causes that may be on my/their end. So strange I have never had an issue in the past.
