It seems to be the game servers 192.64.xxx.xxx that are giving me issues, 64.7.194.xxx.xxx & 66.150.148.xxx & 216.133.234.xxx give me no problems and no lag.

It is not affecting all servers so there is a slight chance that you can get into a game with zero lag on a "good" server.


My Assessment: I believe the game server is not sending the packets of data to the client. I don't believe there is a problem with the client sending packets to the server because when I would click and use different spells, I actually did use them in game. I just I didn't see what was going on until 5~8 secs later. If the client to server was the issue it would respond more like having a higher ping where you don't do what you want.

I'm losing lots of packets on their end. Here are some data from netlog:

[time], [address], [incoming], [outgoing], [app_ctos], [app_stoc], [loss], [sent], [ping], [variance], [reliable delayed], [unreliable delayed], [app update delayed], [Time spent in critical section (frame)]

Everyone who is recently been lagging could you please go to your netlog (/league of legends/logs/network logs) and confirm what I have found.

EDIT: It seems a lot of people are confirming this issue. Hopefully riot will see this now and fix it. Or if it is a problem with Verizon then hopefully the network managers at riot will contact the network mangers at verizon to get this fixed.

Note: This is NOT a latency/ping issue. Reddit has it wrong this is a High Packet Loss problem. Most people including my self don't get a rise in ping when lagging it's because the client is not receiving the information from the server.

UPDATE: Here is a infographic of how traceroute works and why riot needs to worry about performing the traceroute on there end and not ours.

UPDATE 2: The temporary solution where you block the servers that are affected doesn't work because riot doesn't care if you block the servers and it will assign a bad server to you anyways.

UPDATE 3 (11/26/13): High Packet loss seems to be back. I wouldn't play for a while if you had the issue before until riot fixes it again.
