I live in Canada (near Detroit, Mi USA) and play chinese WOW with my brother (who teaches in China) and various friends. My average latency was a tolerable 500ish ms.

Recently however; (soon after China repaired that earthquake damaged oceanic fibre optic line) it jumped to a mean latency of 900-1200ms. The suddeness and consistency of this new (and intolerable) latency makes me think that something significant (read: hardware or software as opposd to a sharp increase in traffic) has changed.

While lag issues are typically unresolvable, I`m hoping there is something to at least explain this difference...

My thoughts are that the new splitting of Hong Kong?`s connection to China to a basic connection and a premium $$$ connection is the culprit.

Tracert of service 6 at 8am China time this date:

Tracing route to cn6.grunt.wowchina.com [61.135.184.115]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 ***
2 ***

5 15 ms 14 ms 13 ms GE2-0.PEERA-CHCGIL.IP.GROUPTELECOM.NET [66.59.19

6 13 ms 14 ms 40 ms 66.59.191.150
7 14 ms 22 ms 16 ms 62.159.61.253
8 253 ms 249 ms 251 ms 62.154.5.205
9 298 ms 301 ms 301 ms 62.153.202.166
10 410 ms 412 ms 406 ms 202.96.12.61
11 306 ms 307 ms 296 ms 202.96.12.62
12 407 ms 396 ms 395 ms 61.148.3.58
13 202.106.48.157 reports: Destination net unreachable.

Trace complete. ---------------------------

I will add one from peak China time to see if it shows the difference.

Anyone knowledgable on the WWW, networking, and particularly overseas internet infrastructure please weigh in here.

Also, where are you and what is your mean latency? Am I offbase with unreasonable expectations here?

Thanks in advance for all your considered input.

I play in France and my latency is usually 2 000 or 1 000 for the good days ^^ but the problem isn't the latency, the problem the LAG. I mean when your character just freez and nothing moves for a few seconds or more...

I think there's two main things causing this:

1. China is very far and you have to go through many many many many ... routers (which are maybe not really fast or very new) or interconnected network equipements to get to wowchina servers and sometimes like you can see on your tracert the paquet that you send can't reach it's destination because of multiples reasons (TTL, Routing protocol problem, link down...). So sometimes your computer waits for a long time for the responses from the server because of multiples reasons which are very difficult to explain because depending on your ISP, line, DSLAM and some other things....


2. I am not sure about that one but EVERY communication which goes from inside China to outside China especially electronical data are watched and filtred by the Chinese governement. That would explain why you can't for example go on some website from inside china like some blog website or other sites like that... So it takes some time to analyze every data and that times slow down a lot more your connections to the wow servers and any other servers in China..You can see for example that when you try to access chinese website it's really slow....

And also one last thing, some months ago a backbone cable which was handling a lot of communications towards China was broken by some boat which sank into the sea....I am not sure of that one either but since that accident my ping was awwwwwfulll and it's now almost impossible for me to play....


I thing all of this should explain our problems to connect to chinese wow servers and our ENORMOUS latency....

Thanks for the input guys.

I didn't get around to posting a busy-time tracert (work called)...

All those issues I understand and I expect the poor lag/latency. I just wondered if there was an additional reason that had happened recently.

It's just I see a lot of PVP talk in here and there's no way I can pvp with this kind of connection. As a ZS it's like I'm fighting blind.

I was worried that I had a problem that you guys didn't :\
