Hi all,

I noticed some rubberbanding while in the game. When I started /netgraph I noticed a strange behavior:

I have a ping between 150 and 300, which is kinda slow but since it goes over the Atlantic, I guess I have to live with it. But every now and then, (between 5 and 10 seconds) the green graph is spiking to the top and you notice a significant lag or rubberband effect. I was curious about this and did a traceroute to the server. Looks like there is a small hiccup in the network:

Trace complete.

Two interesting points:
Between 3 and 4 is the transatlantic line, so that increase is expected.
But the jump between 5 and 6 looks like a problem between my provider and their peering partner in the states. 6 and 7 are router which don't answer to the ICMP requests thats why there are stars, the remaining path looks good.

Just wanted to document this in case you get more of these reports. Maybe others with this problem can post their traceroute too.

Kind regards
