Xbox Live: Why is it harder to get a match/ Online Game session after 10pm???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Between 10pm-11pm i notice a huge drop off of playable games online.
Anyone know what the cause is? The game only picks up again the following day
IS it Xbox Live?
Maybe the 2ksports games servers?
OR is my Internet Service Provider?

After 10pm England UK time zone should get tons of matches as by then the Americans should be coming home from school/ work.
east coast 5pm.
Then after that even if i were to play as late as 3am, the west coast of CANADA and USA would only be 7pm.
Can anyone figure out why alot of people (including me) finds in harder to play WWe13 Wrestling online game after 11pm?

Yeah, we need to know what games you are trying to play. If it's a sport game, then my guess is there just isn't a ton of people playing. If it's CoD, then there is something wrong.

He clearly stated he was trying to play WWE13, but unfortunately I have no answer for him.

The best case scenario ping for you, from England to NYC, is like 90ms. It's borderline unplayable in some games, WWE might just refuse to set up a match under those conditions.

Unfortunately, its just physics working against you, nothing you can do about it. frown.gif

Hi sorry for any confusion. The name of the 360 games i am trying to play late at night/early morning is WWE 13 Wrestling
I did a ping test here are my results:

https://secure.dslreports.com/pingtest/4a38aa757979/3029920?r=294

i also tried http://www.pingtest.net/
I did a test at 5:25am to san franscisco the results say :ping 182ms. jitter 1ms
Los angeles, ping 165ms, jitter 3ms

If i do my own country i get better result Milton keynes, UK Ping 12 ms , jitter 1ms
Its very confusing as the 2 previous years playing WWE 11 & WWE 12 i had not much problems with playing USA late at night.

What would be the best solution?
Should i complain to my ISP provider? i have the basic cable modem package. Speed tests say it is a 20mb modem, but reality is i can download maximum at 2.4mb per sec. Upload speed is 1mb p/s
If i was to get upgrade my broadband package would i see better results when playing this game? or should i hassle my isp to look at my current package. thxs any feedback would be welcome
