You need to run a trace-route to server.
Best way to do it is download this: http://www.r1ch.net/stuff/ftrace/wftrace.exe
In the command line type in acmectf.com and hit Start.
Then you can just copy the results and paste them here in a reply.
I would suggest that you run a trace when your ping is normal and another when your ping is higher.
I also suggest you remove/change the IP shown in the first hop like this:
1  3ms    0ms    0ms    0.0.0.0

You were not alone. I am usually a low pinger but I was at 140 for a while which settled down to the 50's but the connection was still rough.
 Alka - your the best, thanks for the trace link and all the other help you give here. I am not good with computers so your simple solutions really help me.

Hey no problem YOWZA, my pleasure to be of assistance.  smiley

That trace looks pretty good beaver, try and get a trace when your ping is in the pooper and paste it here as well.

If it doesn't come down, we should probably get a sub.  Last night I was missing video and sounds the whole time, really not fair to my team.  I ended up just walking around trying to get in the other teams way.

I'm not sure, maybe WORM or someone else can shed some light.
I actually go through the same hop as you (ae0.bbr01.eq01.wdc02.networklayer.com [173.192.18.152]).. and mine is fine there.

its always in the late afternoon when my ping spikes to 120 130 is it because there are lots of activity on acme server... or is it that on specific hop at that paticular time of day.... no one is playing on any acme server right now... my ping is great at 40... but its 3am..

There is no problem shown in that.

Your previous posts of traces show some overloaded switches on a couple of hops at different times. Usually these are transient in nature and routing should adjust to balance them. You can contact your ISP and see if they will work with you on the issue but good luck with that.

You haven't given any data to show packet loss...is there any? At command prompt, ping -n 100 173.192.216.18 and post results if there is any loss.

Ping isn't everything...we have a number of European players with high pings that do very, very well on the L-Fire servers. Complain to them and you'll be laughed off the server.  laugh

<xterm> The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
