My ping sits at 82-84. Been playing only a couple weeks, but I play other games (even today), with no lag issues. Until now. SWTOR is running for like 2 minutes then spikes from 82 to 3600, 4600, etc until 1660 and then d/c. No internet problems on my end, all other games running fine. Anyone else have this? i'm on Harbringer if it helps.

Same here, on the European servers.
Connection changes between 80ms and 10000+ and d/c.
Had the same a week ago.

I just logged in to find server lag jumping between 100 and 26k ms. Da*** is going on?

Server: Red Eclipse
Everything else internet-wise is going fine.#

Edit: Server lag spikes beyond 70k now, effectively d/cing

Yes It Seems Like a Problem with Routing or so.

Itīs Like 2012.

Same thing on Van Chain (German RP-Server). Can't even chat for rp. It spiked up to 280k lag bevor the prog freezed. EA guys are you serious? It's not my eNet, can play without lags GW2 and Aion.

It is a problem of European servers , I tried creating a character in an American server and everything works perfectly .
With my characters on the European server gives me 100k + lag when connecting

Hey everyone,

We need a bit more information for our investigation into this. If you would, please let us know the following so we can track down the issue:

- What planet are you on?
- Does it occur on multiple characters or specific ones?
- Does it occur on multiple planets/areas or specific ones?
- What server are you on?
- What region/country are you connecting from?

Thanks in advance for the information!

I've also had lag problems the last week or two.
Not sure if I am part of the current lag issues or if it is just my Internet connection, but here goes:
The lag usually starts happening at around 7pm and lasts until midnight local time, so it must be a load issue because it only happens during primetime.

Planet: Mostly warzones, but also inside my strongholds or on republic fleet
Occurs on all characters in all areas
Server: T3-M4
Region/country: Germany. I get a lot of packet losses / timeouts, with the ping increasing to up to 15-30 seconds every few minutes until the game catches up again.
Tracert shows that I connect to the game server via Telia. Also, I tried connecting via a VPN (which routed through Level3) and I did not get any packet losses there.

If there's anything you can do to fix these issues, I'd appreciate it.

Edit: Here's my traceroute (ignore the ping, now that primetime is over, my connection is fine again, but it shows you the routing):

Code:

My "Server Lag" reported in game is usually 30-35ms. Tonight it's fluctuating between 60-1600ms

Edit - more info for Tait:

- What planet are you on? -- Doesn't make a difference. Tried fleet, dromund kaas, nar shaddaa, quesh, ilum
- Does it occur on multiple characters or specific ones? -- all
- Does it occur on multiple planets/areas or specific ones? -- multiple
- What server are you on? -- The Red Eclipse
- What region/country are you connecting from? -- Southwest UK

Seeing a noticeable increase in latency and packet loss once traversing telia.net:
