You can get a game server ip to check with /cl_currentserveraddress in the game console.

I did a tracert to one of the swedish servers here. I have attached a screenshot in this post.
I'm a little curious why the tracert go through both Denmark and Germany when this should be a swedish server?
I had stable 25-30 ping before the latest update and now it's between 80-90.. http://imgupload.eu/viewer.php?id=5668.jpeg
After "Telenor.se" it jumps to Denmark, Germany and then back to sweden again, but now it has 80ms.
And FYI. I live in sweden.

Have a think before you post next time. How in gods name can the quakelive devs "fix the ping". The location of players to srvers in something beyond their control. *huge doh!*
During the beta - constant 20-30 ms delay to Frankfurt and Maindenhead. Right after the update, my delay is all over the place 100-200 ms. Nothing changed on my link side and I connect to the same servers. Before, I haven't seen that many people with high pings playing the game (probably just leaving because their link is not good enough).

Will post my game ping / network path in a bit.
Or I won't... in one last try, I removed both the plugin and everything in my ~/.quakelive/quakelive/home
Reverted my settings to what was there before... and everything works. I'm back to ~30ms pings. So yes - the upgrade from beta was an issue, but I won't restore from backups just to see which part caused the actual problems.
Any answer to my previous post? Q3 is by far one of the best FPS games to play multiplayer on but it's not fun when i ping 80-90 on a server that should be located in sweden where I also live.
I got the same problem as drakfanskapetfu and xAjo*. I normally have 6-7 ping at Swedish server and after the update i have to play with 60-70. I got better ping in mosqow, frankfurt, paris then i got on the Swedish server..
And i live in Stockholm and have 100mbit and the server is placed in Stockholm!? how is this possible?
The server locations have not changed, your ISP's ended up on a different route to them, the problem is nothing to do with id / QuakeLive.
Your only recourse is to complain about routing issues to your isp, send them tracerouts, and hope they investigate and fix the problem, or change ISP.
I asked a friend with another ISP to do a tracert to the same ip and his routing went only through sweden so it seems like the ISP that I have (bredbandsbolaget) have some routing problems to these servers
