I've got a cheap contract with a good provider and I get 120 - 160 ping to US servers from western Germany (I believe EU summoners get connected to NY servers exclusively) not to mention godlike 16 ping to EU servers wherever they may be. A friend of mine has high ping slow download speed and constantly breaking down connection cause he lives in a small village where they got old phone lines and all of their data has to be send to the next bigger city before it can travel on.

So if you want to improve your ping go and talk to your provider first.
Exactly!

And with all these comments I'm surprised not one person has mentioned port forwarding!

I personally live in cali and I was still getting ping spikes upwards 1.3k - 4.4k ping which is virtually unplayable lol But with a little bit of web sleuthing, I was able to change my port forwarding settings on my router and have a consistent 27 ping since

These are the ports I managed to dig up, hope it helps!
TCP: 8393-8400, 2099, 5223, 5222
UDP: 5000-5500

I was wondering if you could perhaps make a server on www.speedtest.net so that i can check my ping before I start a game to see if my ping is well enough to even play. Its really simple, all you have to do is click the "Become a Host" button at the bottom of the page and then fill in the required. I hope you take this into consideration and others feel free to use this website to test your ping. Its really helpful and easy!!!

But what can they (Australians, for example) do? There are no servers close. The closest server is in the phillapines, is run by Garena, and from what I can tell has AU IP blocked. The only other one available seems to be in China, and the ping to that one is even worse than to the US.

Are you saying they simply shouldn't play?

The issue is that Australia doesnt actually have direct routing to the Phillipines, so we end up getting routed across the world and its actually worse than the US servers.

Edit: oops sorry for the horrible old bump guys, didnt realise.

well its not that easy to move the entire server to a different state. They could maybe MAKE a new server around the east, but then i dont think the whole lol community would all be playing at the same time
