This is on a case by case basis, upload your results from the tool provided and create a post. I'll do my best to help.

The only info I need is your location (helps track data centers) and the resulting file from the tool.

Here's an example fix for the windows firewall.

Go into Windows Firewall (I did this on Windows 7 x64)

Create an outbound rule.

Click "Custom"

Click "All Programs"

Leave Protocol type to "Any"

Under the remote IP addresses section of the next page, add the following IP addresses:

50.203.115.149
68.86.85.141
68.86.86.101
68.86.95.114
68.86.86.214
68.86.83.6
68.86.89.209
68.87.218.242
50.203.115.150
68.86.86.97
68.86.95.118
68.87.218.242
50.203.115.150
68.86.88.230
68.86.87.37
68.86.89.217
68.86.95.118
68.87.218.242
64.7.194.1

After adding that list of IPs, on the next page, click "Block Connection".

The rule applies to all 3 network zones.

Name it whatever you want.

Launch a custom game and check your ping! This should help fix latency issues to the server.
This fix blocks the hops that cause high latency and packet loss.

Good luck to everyone on the Rift!

If you found this helpful, thumb up and share on other topics so that we can get this fixed without Riot's help! XD

Welp, so far I've tried around 4 custom games and stayed in there for a while. Went from stable 120~125 ping to a stable 80~90 ping. Kudos to you sir! You fixed a problem I've been having for months and trying to find a solution all this time.
Once again, thank you sooooooooo much!

Upload your network tool results to here and I'll take a look at it and see if there are any changes that need to be made.

By blocking random Comcast addresses, you try to accomplish what exactly?

They aren't random, as they are primary data centers for Comcast and frequently cause this issue.

I've seen similar issues with Netflix streaming.

As I couldn't find the tool Riot gives on their official thread anymore, I attached it to the OP.

Download the tool, run it, then upload the result file for me to look at. The method I posted seems to work for Fios users, but may cause issues for others, so if someone from Cox, Comcast, AT&T, etc. upload a result file, I can further improve this guide for each ISP.

Here you go. I deleted the outband again because I can't bear the 30 second lag as Im missing some teamfights as such. However this 120 ping again is dreadful after playing on a smooth no lag 80 ping
