I guess there's a few discussions about Western routing issues on here.
This is a fairly recent change though.
I play NHL 18 mainly, and in the past I would get connected (properly) to their Western servers.
Recently (within maybe the last 2-3 months) I've been getting connected to their Eastern servers instead. Living in Alberta this causes a huge latency discrepancy which makes the game almost unplayable online. I did a trace route and it shows me getting routed to Chicago, which is in the East - which is probably why EA thinks I'm living in the East.
Is there any way to fix this?
