Shiwah ... in other word Shiva. Meaning: Creating out of nothing. (literally, that's what Shiva means/represents in Hindu mythology)

Really? Then why is the Game Client communicating with this IP ???

: As I dont see a spam of posts of other Irish players complaining about the same issue (which usually happens when such a rather big change goes through), I would think it doesn't have anything to do with Riot or you playing from Ireland. Your ping would be over 100 if you were actually using the LA servers physically located in California, USA, period- I know that because I play other online games that sometimes require me to use US servers and the ping is guarantueed to be over 100, because that is just the physical reality of network traffic over large distances. Speed of light is not infinite. So now that your ping is ~50 and not over 100, we know you are NOT using the actual Riot LA servers, so Riot has nothing to do with it. I would advice you to contact your ISP via telephone and demand a network check of your traffic to track down what might influence the longer way your packages now have to take and how the hell LA now appears in that route when you are just accessing an EU server. I hope you have nice and helpful ppl to contact as I did when I had to track down why the hell I cant use spectator client with the ISP I had.
Everyone just assumes. Nobody seems to have the answers. Anyway, thanks for your contribution.

Ahh, yes.... that's what I experienced. Now we on same page. Also, did you notice PING freeze ? Like it's stuck at 48ms ... But we can tell it's worst then 48ms? And we get sudden spike of 600ms.. that slowly counts down to 48ms again in 5 - 8 seconds ?
: If you were actually playing on or over California servers, your ping would be over 100, not 50. I am by no means versed in the technicalities of networks, but I'd think there is a proxy or something like that physically located in EU (if someone has the better technical term) between you and the EU server PRETENDING to be LA.
Yes, may be it would double the PING, etc. Maybe, RIOT decided to make Irish players play on NA servers. Maybe, this... Maybe, that... I've transferred my account to NA, EU Nordic, Russia in past. I understand that more hop is required, and hence the added time on PING. What I am asking is, why LA servers being used recently? Was fine just about 2 weeks ago at around 29ms.
: Good point.Sorry to hear then, hopefully Riot gets a more reliable server for you to connect on. Godspeed
For last 6 years, I always had had 30ms PING. Why the hell you all being so negative? All I am asking is in the main POST. If you don't have answer, don't answer with psychological bull crap. It was fine just 2 weeks ago. WTF changed??? You don't know??? Then stop supposing ....

Show some proof, enough with your fairy tales.

Where is your stats to prove "ping would have doubled" theory? Don't talk from your arse. And stop replying to my thread as your information is out of topic. Stop bull **** me.
: Well, I meant fine as in stilll playable.It's not optimal, that's for sure, but it won't take long to get used to , trust me, only when the ping is like 70 + will you start to feel some sort of REAL delay, at least in my experience. I wish you luck in any case ^^
Well, if my game-server were in UK or in Germany (like 2 weeks ago), I wouldn't be here. Someone decided to move my traffic to LA, California without notice. I get ping spikes, and high ping times then I used to. It's like someone decided to TAX me more than everyone else without my consent. I feel being robbed.
: 50 ms? C'mon that's fineee, trust me
How is it fine when just few weeks ago it was 29ms?? Why am i getting this extra 15ms for?

Please do not use psychological tactics to address a network/game issue. I submitted my findings, if you have better or counter findings based on my location (Dublin, Ireland) then please present it here. I never played on 50ms. Always 28-35 ms. Bye
