Since a couple months ago my roblox ping has been spiking. My ping was normal since the past couple years until now. I tried to get a better internet plan, use ethernet, tried different PCs and I'm still having pink spikes. I don't know whats the cause of the problem. It's like it randomly appeared to mess with me. When I'm on a pserver my ping is normal, but as soon as someone else joins and I start pvping them (or an NPC) the ping starts spiking from 80 to 500-600 then back to 80 after like 3 seconds. I already tried contacting Roblox support and they told me it could be because of my ISP or my ports not being open? I don't know anymore I just need some assistance since I can't play anything on Roblox.
Make sure that you are not running any VPNs or any extensions that may slow down your internet. The weirdest part to me is that this happens with NPC too. I would make sure that your PC is not maxed out by opening the task manager and checking that.
It sounds like a Wi-Fi issue to me. If you are running 80 ping on average, it is not great Wi-Fi. If you don't think this is it, answer the following questions:
- Does this happen on all Roblox games? If no, then it is most likely a game issue that everyone suffers.
- Does this happen on other games outside of Roblox? If the answer is no, delete Roblox and redownload.
