[Cable] Latency from Level3.

Click for full size
I was trying to check up what is up with the game I am playing experiencing massive lag.

The traceroute it for the GuildWars 2 server and it looks like Level3 is being horrid at the moment 175ms+ latency. Everything I do in game is delayed for 2 seconds and everyone is popping everywhere.

What can I do?

i'm not sure if that traceroute is accurate in showing where the issues are. doing an mtr myself i see the Level3 routers have high latency too but the hops after go back down like on yours (54ms) which indicates it's just the Level3 routers de-prioritizing ICMP.

you can see by simply pinging 4.59.197.34 directly. ~50ms to Dallas isn't bad, if there's an issue it's likely after that and directly with GW2 servers.

I'm using VPN to test something going around from MidWest server.

The connection from Toronto to Chicago is having some congestion while from Above.net to Chicago has none.

what happens if you simply ping 4.59.197.34?

so it seems to indicate there's simply some ICMP de-prioritization then and not actual performance issues going through Level3.
