ping times jumping erratically while moving in game.

Recommended Posts

I've been gaming online since the beginning of time so I have strong feelings for a nice low ping.

I know plenty about the reasons for increased pings due to variations in routing (distance travelled) and traffic . This is not related to other traffic on my network, it only occurs in squad and even unplugging or disabling all other connections to my router it still occurs.

 

In squad I see about 60 in the server browser and while dead but while moving around I have a varying ping which jumps from 80 to over 200 on most servers I play.

This erratic response is effecting my enjoyment, a lot.

 

I gather many of the servers I frequent are in Europe, generally Germany/Netherlands. I play from the UK and a ping between 40 and 60 is normal for me for most games in servers in the UK/Western Europe area.

 

Is there a port number or some information about the network traffic for squad which I can take to my ISP and request priority?

Any other suggestions? I am willing to take herbal remedies or lick the toes of a 120 year old rasta if it will make a difference.

I can ping and trace routing with very little variation. 

Is it possible to use ping commands to ping a squad game server if I can find out the IP?

Turns out you can ping squad servers, this is TLR server.
