Extreme latency

Technical Support
I have been experiencing extreme latency both in game and also when connecting to the wow website.

Is this a known issue or is this isolated to me and possibly my ISP?

Also is there a domain or IP I can ping to see what type of responses I am getting when pinging ?
Must be all of our ISP.
are you guys on the east coast?
I am and the game is barely playable.
Nope, AZ, but Blizz will still blame it on about 5 different ISPs at this point.
I have had problems with my ISP in the past but all other sites load without issue... though it could be just the node I connect to wow through thats having issues...
Blizzard won't even respond, they let their rabid followers respond and tell you that it's your ISP or somewhere in between and that blizzard can't do anything about it.

My tracert proves the problem is on blizzards end...

I am on the west coust - Pacific Northwest and my game is still trying to connect to the server...been 10 min's. so far

Exactly and I am beyond pissed right now grrrr. I've read through all the latency threads and the only thing we all have in common 100% is Blizzard.

I just joined an old raid guild on an alt and was supposed to get to 60 asap. LOL right! I can't even play now.
I'm on the east coast and i called my internet provider and they said that all battle.net games are having an internet problem, i wonder if they will fix this issue because i can't play with 1000 ms it is impossible
Can they please fix this. I cant even do anything in game but sit there.
mine is Optimun aswell but they said it's the same for verizon and some other internet companies
I live in new york. The game is unplayable at this point with the world latency being high.
AZ/Cox...Like it matters at this point, it's all on Blizz now, obviously. They can tell us all of our ISPs are a problem.
They will not admit fault, the problem will magically be resolved one day, and they will then claim ownership over fixing the issue. Until then, they just make your post tracert's and traceping's to make you feel like they are trying to help you.

In reality, none of our posts are doing anything except letting us vent, they are working on it, and won't admit it, and we have to deal with it. Until they figure it out, you won't hear what they're trying to do or when they think it will be fixed.
