RuneScape high ping issues on all worlds, Jagex is aware and looking into them

RuneScape is one of the oldest MMORPG games available. It has maintained a solid base of active players since its launch in 2001.

As in other similar games, in RuneScape you can explore a vast world filled with dangers, quests, raids, objects and more, alone or with friends.

Having stable servers is one of the basic requirements for an MMO to run smoothly. However, many RuneScape players have faced issues in this regard.

It seems that many have been experiencing high ping issues in RuneScape worlds for quite some time now (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

RuneScape high ping issues on all worlds

Numerous reports related to the issue have emerged in recent days. High ping issues negatively impact command response, affecting gameplay.


Suddenly today I get over 140 pings on all worlds – usually I get between 30 and 40. Anyone else having trouble?

I can barely move in the game sometimes and it randomly freezes for a few seconds at a time. UNPLAYABLE !

Anyone else having trouble today? Tried to reset my router and everything.

There is NO problem with my internet, I get 250 downloads and 250 downloads and my ping shows 3 on speed tests.

According to reports, all West Coast Server worlds seem to be the most affected by the issue in question.

West Coast server connectivity issues

A few days ago my ping to all worlds on the west coast suddenly jumped over 100. In worlds where I previously would have had 35 ping I now have 140. At the time a few other players had posted about it, so I was inclined to believe it wasn’t just me. It’s now several days later, it hasn’t improved and I don’t know what else to do.

My UL/DL speeds are even 172/172 Mbps and no other internet related games, sites or things are working abnormally.

The problem has been present for weeks

Although many reports of the problem have appeared in recent days, the RuneScape high ping issue is not exactly new, as there have been related reports for at least 3 months.


High ping on all worlds

For a few days now my ping has noticeably worsened from 100 to 120, it is now 180 to 200+ on all worlds. Is there a way to lower my ping? A VPN maybe? I really feel the lag, and it’s really quite annoying to deal with the timing of some bosses.
