Wondered if anyone could help. I am having some issues when playing call of duty on line. At quiet times everything works well and I get paired up with people from the uk and the game runs well. At peak times it is completely different and I get paired up with people from other countries and the game gets really laggy. I hapened to run a traceroute at peak time to various uk websites including my own IP and noticed that I seem to be routed through Germany? Wondered if this was related?
I'm going to guess you ran that traceroute on ping.eu. They are based in Germany I believe, that is why the initial part runs through German hops. If you are trying to test your connection, you would need to run the traceroute through command prompt/terminal.
