Server hosting (trace route)

Recommended Posts

So a game I play has a server that says it's hosted in "United States (West Coast)". But when I do a tracert to it, it jumps from the West Coast to the United Kingdom at the last trace, why is this? I know it must be hosted where they say it is because I get a decent ping. But I was always wondering why it jumps back like that.

Does it affect my gameplay when it has to go back overseas like that?

Jagex is based in the UK. :sneaky:

Well aware, but why would it trace back to it at the last one? The ping doesn't go back there does it? Not all the servers do that.
