Alberta connection getting routed to Eastern EA Servers

Discussion created by stevenwong on Mar 10, 2018

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?
