It is a hub that is owned by Godaddy. Is there anyway to avoid my traffic going through there?

You may want to flush your DNS:

Cheers I should have done this. I have not seen any latency issues today. It very much looks like Godaddy has a hardware issue, which may now be resolved. I will ofc do a dns cache flush.

Not resolved

Still not resolved.

Still ongoing. UK player, Vodafone ISP - see https://www.reddit.com/r/classicwow/comments/1aw8t6g/people_still_having_disconnect_issues/ - not just lag spikes but complete disconnects, BNet client failing to load properly, WoW/Hearthstone failing to work/login at all.

I had issues with this, but I am not seeing it anymore. Virgin here.

However, I had to show a mate how to run WinMTR and he was seeing 4k spikes. He is also on Vodaphone. The server that showed up the spikes was also owned by Goddaddy. This is not a Blizzard issue per se. You should also put pressure on your ISP.

I had my ISP’s rep at my house when they were replacing the cabling, and when I showed him winmtr and pingsplitter results, he said that the faulty node is PAST blizzardonline/com and is therefore entirely out of their jurisdiction, and I should write to Blizzard support as it’s happening on the node between their servers / data centers. They also tried routing my connection through different settings, but there’s no issue on the way up to the ae1-br01 so it hasn’t helped.

Bumping the thread up. The issue hasn’t been resolved.

Im sorry, but how is a Blizzard (owned by Microsoft) not responsible for the tracing that goes globally for their games, but your regional ISP provider, is? (Im just messing with you, I know the great answer, Im just surprised there are even defenders among the people who contribute into spreading false information regarding this ongoing issue ehehe :rofl: )

Last 2 days no issue for me, anyone else still with the problem ?

It was better today, but spikes still happen - just every hour instead of every quarter… the cause of the issue remains the same:
