High Ping Spikes

★★★★ Novice

Product: Titanfall 2
Platform:PC
Summarize your bug Located in Canada, Connecting to Oregon Data Center. Ping normally in the 50-57 ms at start menu. In game averaging around 120-144 ms, with spikes almost every second or two into the 240-500ms range.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I have read all the issue's on both Respawn and Reddit in regards to this issue. I understand there is no real fix for this issue. It has become so bad that it takes almost all of the fun out of the game.
What happens when the bug occurs? Ping Spikes = lag. We are talking up to half a second difference from a player who isn't experiencing this issue. I shoot, they aren't even there.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see admission that it is on the Data Center's end. Is this a netcode issue or a hardware issue? Hey at least give me a page for TF2 port forwarding. It wasn't an issue at launch, and the fact post update there is no response from anyone in regards to this issue is kind of a big deal. ‌

I have the same problem and posted this on : https://forums.titanfall.com/en-us/discussion/7321/report-high-ping-here#latest

 

 

""I've tried to capture some of my problems.
As stated before my specs are:
I7 6700K @ 4ghz, 16G RAM, GTX1070, Samsung 250SSD. Win10, Norway.

I use Logitech G602 mouse and Logitech Extreme 3d pro joystick when i play. Also running is "xpadder" (Key mapping software for the joystick) Keyboard is Logitech 510s W/lcd and cpu/ram monitoring (Usually shows about 20-45% cpu usage and 15-55% ram when playing)

My internet connection is 30Mb up and 15Mb Down.

I use Amsterdam ( 29-31 ping in lobby) 42-315 in game and i tried London (34 ping in lobby) same result

I have tried:
-Wtfast,
-Adjusted settings down to "Low" from "Insane" back to "Low" and waiting 6-7 sec,
-"gpu_vram_size_mb .....",
-Minimizing origin,
-Closing Origin ingame
-Closing nvidia experience,
-Doing a restart often.
-My motherboard has only pci Exp.3 for the GPU (Someone wrote that it helpt them when they change from a pci ex2 to 3
-Repair game
-Unparking CPU
-Uninstall xbox app. via "PowerShell"
-Only one network adapter(Wired)
-Virus prog deactivated
-Changes adaptive resolution to 0
-Uninstalled Visual C++ and reinstaled


Here are some examples:


"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLZiGS858hs"

-Server said 31 ping (Amsterdam)
-Ingame ping from 42-315
-Ping goes to 185 (02:09)
-Ping goes to 315 (07:25)

Rubberband?? at 01:57
And from 02:10 to 02:43

 

 

 

"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhRfKG0kJRs"

 

-Freezes a few times between 05:56-06:22 (Tried to bring up the scoreboard with ping during stop-and-go)

 

 

 

"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4ETU3JreUI"

 

-Ping from 33-179. Game freezes alot from 09:04 and out. Had to activate boost twice 08:15-08:19. The hole round feelt "off"

 


"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhmgteHboC4"
-Ping goes from 44-156 (This is the next game after the one "above" It felt better, but not 100% ok Things are still a "little off"

 


The last 2 happend today.(Time/date stamp is Norwegian time zone)


My biggest problem is "small stutters" when jumps, firing my gun, walking etc are "off" ( Not happening when they are supposed to) I'm having problems locating it in my videos but i do feel them when i'm playing.

Hope this information helps.""  

 

It seems like the problem is worse when the ping is "Erratic" (Rapid up and down)  Hope this will be fixed( or the reason is located if its on my end)  :-)
