I'm rubber-banding all over the place today. Normal ping is 15ish ms... Today it's 60 or higher. WG, please fix your servers.

I NEVER experience lag playing WOTs.  Until a couple of weeks ago.  Now a routine thing.  Playing on a fiber network connection with a pretty good gaming machine.  No issues except on WOTs.

I never have lag and am experiencing the same thing.  How do you do a trace route?  I used to know how but have forgotten.

WOT support is going to suggest you use a product called PingPlotter to trace the route. It gives you a nice graph of the values also. You can get it from PingPlotter.com.

I'll save everyone the time of using PingPlotter (PP).  PP indicates the problem is at the WOT end.

 

He is a good tutorial on using traceroute or tracert.

Thanks. I did ping test and it was consistently normal

Even logging on and posting to this WOT is bad.

I use PingPlotter. I logged in for a game and was teleporting all over the place.

Me too and this is a rarity.  Today's lag reminds me of when the servers were crashing frequently a couple of months ago. 

My FPS >130, ping around 100ms... both should be fine.

Time for some wild speculation... I'm going to guess that someone who got banned had enough extra money to pay for a DDoS attack.

I guess RNG affects connections now too...

Really getting tired of WG's BS.  All of it.

 

Spending my coin somewhere else.  That's all they'll understand.

This packet loss makes it unplayable... Tanks poke, shoot and pull back before I see them.  Its like trying to play via slide show.

 

I hope they extend ranked battles and premium time by a day for each day this goes on.

My ping is bouncing all over the place and making gameplay not enjoyable at all.

Look at the digital attack map, lots of activity going on right now, this may not be WoTs fault at all.

Googled that... never seen it before.  That IS a lot of activity... crazy stuff.  Still hope they extend ranked (partially because I hope it delays the update - forever)
