A couple of days ago my internet supposedly got reset or something (im not too sure what actually happened), and it wouldnt let me get on the internet, so i called AT@T and i was able to get on the internet again.
so before all of this happened my ping would stay around 36ms and there would be no in-game problems, but now my ping has usually been staying around 70 to 100.
Assuming you didn't change anything in your local configuration, there's not really much you can do about it. The ping is a function of internet response time, which can vary, sometimes by a lot. It all has to do w/ the routing determined by the internet, of which you have ZERO control. It's entirely possible your routing changed between then and now (could be lots of reasons; one of the internet routers has goes down for maintenance (so traffic has to be rerouted/detoured), you're using the same internet routers but they're more heavily loaded today (like the highway, some days are worse than others), etc.
I understand that to a gamer, a change from 36 to 70-100 seems significant, perhaps the difference between “virtual” life and death, but to the internet, it’s no big deal. It’s designed w/ latency in mind, which gives it tremendous flexibility. But gamers suffer for that very same reason. What the internet giveth (easy, ubiquitous access), the internet also taketh away (performance).
