      Re: Very High Ping in games, particularly WoW

      Okay, I had a call with a member of the CST, and they reduced my max delays down to 8 for me. This combined with the upgrade of my package to max has reduced my ping times in dos / most games right down to a normal level.

      However, WoW is still notably high, very rarely dropping below 200 still, a friend who lives in the next street and plays on the same server as me hovers at 60.

      A little weird, not unbearable and by all means only a slight issue, i'm completely happy with what Sky have done for me, but thought i'd mention the WoW issue still incase anyone has any gems of information.

      could you both do a traceroute to see where the problem lies ?

      Yeah thats my plan, not sure exactly what to ping though, since I don't know the IP of the server or where it is etc! Just its name!

      you don't need to know the IP you can traceroute a server or website, eg traceroute bbc.co.uk

      I am sure than somewhere on the official forums or WoW help pages there was information on exactly what to traceroute.
