High latency to Cali game server

High latency to Cali game server

Ever since the game servers for FF14 were moved to Cali, I've had extreme connection issues heading thru ntt networks. Is there a way to fix this since Comcast sets up where my connection goes thru?

With the BGP routing protocol it is the host that advertises the route. Contact NTT.

Attempts to contact them are a failure. They say they won't help you if you are not a customer. So, if the game company changed data centers months back, that would mean that the new data center would dictate where traffic goes to connect to the game server which would mean this isn't an issue on Comcast side. Is this an accurate statement?

Yes.
