Default What causes high ping?

Hey there everybody!

I've just recently gotten BFV and whenever I play online my ping is sort of high (anywhere from 100 to 350 on the servers I've been on). I never had this problem with BF42 where I usually had a ping around 25 and 60 at the max on the servers I used to play. I got a pretty slow connection (64k) but this was yet not a problem with BF42, only with BFV. It doesn't really affect my gaming experience too much, its just bothersome whenever I have too much ping on certain servers.

Any/all help is appreciated!

depends where the servers are that you are connecting to.
Ping is just a matter of time it takes to travel from your pc to server and back.
Also do a traceroute to the server and see how many hops it is taking.

Look for servers closer to you.
Thats why I use the All Seeing Eye, great tool.

Seems like the UK has way more servers with BFV. I guess it'll take awhile (and more US sales) before EA matches the amount of servers they have running BF 42' in the States.

Look for low ping servers.....and don't always go by your pre-game ping. Most servers I connect into show me as hitting with a 70-100, but when I get in I'm actually running at 40 or lower.

I know this is probably not the solution to your problem but have you adjusted your audio/video settings? Defaults to pretty high audio quality. Lowering it may help but sounds like you have more than that wrong.

You can see pings using all seeing eye.
Or if you know the servers IP, just ping it from the command line.

Thanx for all the tips guys, I've found some servers that are working allright for me now, Its just a couple but they seem sufficient. I forgot to say in my original post that the servers I refer to are for 32 players or more. I tend to not go for any servers that have less than 40. That way I know I'm not the suckiest player on there, hehe. Well anyway thanx for all the help.
