routing issues PUBG

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 3

I am having issues with my latency on PUBG. I am getting 300ms + , however, when I connect through a VPN, depending on which server I use, I can get it down to 100ms. It appears to be a routing issue. I know my friend with another ISP does not have this issue. Can this be resolved?

The game is now connecting me to the Australian server, so I am now getting a latency of 53 ms. I am not sure why it was connecting me to the sea server, but hopefully will stay on Australia.

Hi @AzDawg ,


Welcome to the community!


We would like to confirm what particular PUBG server you're connected. If you’re in  Australia, but playing on an American or Asian server, your latency will be higher because the geographical distance creates a delay between information being sent from an Australian client-side (player’s) connection before it’s received and relayed from the American server.

Connecting or Playing to a Game server not designated to your area will affect a high latency issue particularly if the Game Developer itself made a specific Server in every location such as SEA / NA Servers etc. If you're having latency issue while playing/connected to the Australian Server please post a screen shot of the latency issue and we'll have it check.
Let us know should you require further assistance.

Hi Shane 

Unfortunately, PUBG does not give you a choice as to which server it connects me to and it automatically connects most Australians to the SEA server. I don't think the distance to the server is the issue because like I said when I connect through a VPN I get a really good ping of about 130ms. Also, my friend gets connected to the same server is also in Australia and his ping is around 90ms. ATM the games seems to be down, but once its back up ill post a screenshot.


We'll wait for the screenshot, @AzDawg. Thank you.

Attached are screenshots. One shows the latency when connected through a VPN (approx 100 ms) and the other without a VPN (approx 300ms). In both cases, I am being automatically connected to South East Asia serves (PUBG does not let players select which server to play on).

Hi @AzDawg,


Thanks for the details. To better understand the situation and to identify if the latency issue is with our network please run a TRACERT and send us the result.

@AzDawg Thank you for the test result. Can you get a trace route through the VPN or your friend's connection? This is so we can compare the difference on the path taken to reach the game server.


Kind regards,

Hi @AzDawg,


Thanks for providing the traceroute results of your friend.
