High latency from Adelaide to SEA on DOTA2 and Discord

hey guys ive been noticing an increase of ping from Adelaide to SEA servers on Dota 2 and Discord ( from 100ms -> 200ms ). im just wondering if there is any faults with routing or cables because sometimes im even having a lower ping to Japan server on the said applications which have never occured to me before.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: High latency from Adelaide to SEA on DOTA2 and Discord

I am experiencing the same issue starting about a month ago. I live in Adelaide as well,  Traceroute shows dota2 is not connected directly to SEA server locates in Singapore, instead, it connects to a telstra server in HK first and I have no idea why.

The only solution I found for now is using mudfish and set the node to 'AU Oceania (Perth - RansomIT)', my ping dropped from 175 to about 80(+-10). $5 for 35gb traffic, not too bad.
