So are the servers on the East coast of NA just garbage or what?

Every time I try to play a game I immediately get bombarded by ping spikes of 150 or more. I mean I know it happens but it has literally made me unable to play the game and I really can’t see myself even wanting to until something is done about it.

Since there are no reported server issues, please refer to these threads for troubleshooting (they are at the top of this forum). They request network test data so people can help you figure out the problem.
