[OK] Gaming Packet loss

Battlefield 4 just introduced a visual packet loss indicator. I just ran this test and its showing loss at a Cox location. Is this a problem?

That just looks like ICMP deprioritization with that one particular router/switch which may not even be part of a tracert to a gaming server. What really matters with that test is that none of packets were lost trying to reach your system.

If you're having problems with a game, then you need to get the IP address of the game server you are playing on and run a tracert to it and possibly a pathping test.
