CS:GO Valve Official Luxembourg Servers high ping, BT's fault?

Hi,

 

Its been long time since I haven't posted anything here on the forum but I feel like its the time!

 

Since a while I have been having an issues with CS:GO Valve Official Servers which are located in Luxembourg. I thought it is only a temporary issue but its been enough long time now. I used to get about 25ms on these Luxembourg servers but now I get over 60ms with spikes to 100ms sometimes and the ping is very jumpy as well. This happens only on Luxembourg servers, other official european servers are fine for me. I am wondering if it is BT's routing/peering issues. I am located in North West, Liverpool if that helps.

Tracert to one of the Luxembourg servers shows 44ms but in game its over 60ms which is little annoying as I was getting 25ms before.

 

Here is the screenshot of the program that tells what ping you can expect on the official servers. I remember I had about 20-30ms on Luxembourg one. Now its about 60ms and its very jumpy comparing to others.

It has nothing to do with my PC as I am having normal low pings to another official servers located further away than this. Anyone else having same issue?

Re: CS:GO Valve Official Luxembourg Servers high ping, BT's fault?

I've already done tons of research on this, it's a nationwide issue, Virginmedia, Sky, BT; Fibre/ADSL/Cable you name it, all function like rubbish on CSGO right now for UK players (hence why we connect to EU East with all the russians). The solution realistically would be for Valve to properly implement 128tick (I know, dream on) and bring back the UK servers they once had, which at the time was Pinion White Label.

I remember it was fine for certain time then there was an issue resulting 150ms to that server from UK, then it gets fixed then it happened again and now this. I am really tired playing on Swedish servers with russians most of the time.

 

I dont think that UK servers are needed, they should change the server locations to germany, netherlands instead of stupid luxembourg or vienna where most of people get high pings especially on vienna. Swedish servers are fine tho.

there is nothing wrong with your latency as the only slight increase is on valves own servers

Indeed John, there is nothing wrong with the latency inside bt network, but outside it there clearly is. If it is a fault on valves side, why only people from UK are affected by that? I saw many people getting normal pings.

As another poster on your thread has posted this problem is on a number of providers who all use different routing to the valve servers putting the problem in valves hands Not BT or any other UK ISP
