US East and West server locations - any traceroutes?

For those that are able to get into the game, can ya’ll confirm the assumed location of the AWS data center that each server is hosted on via a traceroute, or matching your ping to the ping you get from cloudping?


Also interested in knowing what IPs that I can traceroute to. Having occasional high ping from my location.

This is going to be different for everyone, and (probably) each time you connect - there’s going to be some virtual edge devices (ALB/NLB), with an assortment of EIP’s.

That being said, if you’re curious as to what you’re connected to, you can check Resource Monitor in Windows, expand the Network tab, sort by Total (B/sec), and find the LOSTARK.exe process.

Mind you, most “production” AWS EIP’s will not respond to ping and probably not a traceroute either - ICMP packets will be dropped to keep congestion down.

However, the DNS names will have the IP encoded in them ( so you can then look up what region those EIP’s are assigned to (e.g., us-east-1, us-west-2, blah blah).
