Lag all of the sudden

Anyone else notice this? Suddenly my usual 20 ping is at 32 now and was even flatlining at 120 for a game. We were all experiencing it last night. Something must have happened with the new update? Get your crap together EA.
The 6 to 13 is just showing the true ping. The 6 was always 13, it just displayed half its value.
The 80 is probably playing on the server furthest from you, or if it's VS, just someone further away. It would have been. 40 for you previously(visually only).
The servers have been sluggish the past few days, but I'll bet 6 to 40 was your old range.and would be identical to 13 to 80 you now see.
Funny I called my isp yesterday and it’s the biggest in western Canada! And the first question outta the techs mouth was “Are you playing NHL by chance?”
Apparently this game has caused a lot of aggravation for many customers and they are well aware of the problems at EA due to an extreme amount of complaints directed at them!
I have fully confirmed with my isp this is absolutely EAs problem yet they still won’t acknowledge this on the forums or give us any update as to why this is going on! Thanks EA SPORTS!
Just because you talked to the script reader at the call center, doesn't mean anything lol.
And Canada's (I'm in Alberta) internet infrastructure is awful. Gets worse out east. Quebec gets good internet because they don't have to worry about funding (that's on us to worry about lol), but outside of them, the roc has trash infrastructure.
What you are seeing and feeling are 2 different things.
Zombie is right. Your 16-18 ping was a visual bug and was only displaying half of what it really was. So that means your true ping numbers were and now display 32-36.
Now you are also getting lag, which has nothing to do with the ping numbers you see (if we take the info EA gave us, they are not related).
So you are just seeing what your true numbers should be, but from what I can see a ton of us are now also getting lag. Looks to be 2 separate things to me.
For the record, today everything feels normal. I guess my IP got their $#%× together. Yaaaaay!
Been flawless all year before that.
Holy emotional wreck batman. Breath dude. Breath.
BTW, the ping was a visual bug. Period. How do I know? Because it's been known a long time that the shown ping was a one way number. When I did speed tests to areas close to where the servers are supposed to be, my ping showed about double of what it showed in nhl. Which is now the same as the current ping times I get in game.
Take the tin foil hat off, calm down, and use more logic and less emotion.
