EU Central Ping since Patch

I have noticed that since the patch on 21/04 I’ve had significantly increased pings, with the red ping notifications popping up far more frequently than before the update.

All other games and online services are unaffected, including another multiplayer game I play with servers in Germany, so I don’t think it’s a connection issue on my end.

I’m playing on EU Central Procyon.

Has anyone else had similar issues?
