    lol, after I explained in details the situation, giving the guy the infos I got, the only thing he did tell me is "are you using a router?". Yeah dummy, I just fkn tell you that the problem happens at hop X and that I do ping around 15 all around NY, and you ask me about my router? I don't use a router anyway :p

    Andrew ive used battleping for dfo and it decreased my ping by 20-30ish so i went from 150 to 115 sometimes belowish 110. And yeah i felt the difference. Can for sure recommend this one. Also there is 15 min free trial for to test it out. Many options in configuration.

    Got to be honest, none of these things ever helped me... But that's just me.

    They do work in some cases, you just happen to be lucky with the route the signals take from your isp's server to the game's server. Most of the time it does nothing tho, you are right. Just look at it as a fix for some people who are not as lucky as you.

    UK has one of the most efficient routes to the States so it wouldn't be as useful in your case.

    Totally believe that, so often do I join a server some where in the North East from Texas, and my European friends get nearly identical ping. (alittle bit higher)

    Yet anytime I would join a EU game and when I complain about the terrible delay, they act as if I'm just complaining about something they "deal with" daily.

    You will probably get the same ping to the NY server as people living in London. In our ping tests they've been getting around 70-75ms

    From Dallas Texas using Time Warner I get 45 MS.. (I was mostly commenting on how the effectiveness of the European routes to America are vs American routes to Europe)
