Crazy routing to get to et server from melbourne/telstra


Well-Known Member
i ran a netanalyzer tool that has geo-ip over the traceroute. to my surprise i'm getting routed from melbourne to sydney, sydney to japan, japan to nsw data centre, and then et server.
whilst this is a ha ha funny lol...it may explain some of the lag i experience.
is this because whoever the game server company contracts with doesnt have a telstra connection and instead routes via some cheaper mob who route wherever?
i (maybe more than just me) might have a better gaming experience if hosted in japan instead..would be fewer hops.
any ideas?
