Anyone else getting bad latency starting about a week ago?
It's not all the time, but when I started playing NS2 with TG, I was averaging 60ms most of the time.
Lately, my latency hangs out in the 130-150ms range, but usually only when the server is more full; or perhaps more accurately, peak traffic times.
I ran speedtests and such, but my connection doesnt' seem to have changed, and I try to ensure no other bandwith hog apps are running.
It's not 100% but my tracert makes it look like the hosting company may have some 'splainin to do:

I sometimes see other players on the scoreboard will spike simultaneously, but generally don't seem to seem to have prolonged issues.
****ing Level 3. Thank goodness for forum language filters, I guess. I typically don't need them, but.... ****ing Level 3!
The disdain I feel just seeing that screenshot is all Level 3's fault. Level 3 years ago destroyed my gaming situation for months. Packet loss everywhere. My ISP and our game server provider tried to help at the time, but they were powerless.
Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
