European English realm list

What a morning! First my ISP decided to do some form of maintenance which took 3+ hours, and now Quel’Thalas is down (easily confirmed by trying to connect to 80.239.149.29 on TCP port 3724 — no answer), despite what the Realm Status page says. Or, well, it was down — and it wasn’t just me who noticed, either…

This, along with a post from a Blizzard rep. about server location, got me wondering: what exactly are the IPs of the servers, and where are they geographically situated? Well that’s somewhat of a pain to figure out… but I bust out Wireshark this morning, spent some time analysing packets, and then hand-editing the results to get server names, their IPs and TCP port numbers, and where they’re located geographically.

Keep in mind these IPs could change at any time. The locations I figured out on my own, except for the Hamburg servers, which could also be in Stockholm (see WoWWiki for what I mean).

And here’s the network/peering provider associated with each location. As you can tell, Blizzard definitely has some ties with TeliaSonera:

Location               Carrier/Provider
---------------------  ----------------
Paris, France          TeliaSonera
Frankfurt, Germany     TeliaSonera (packets commonly go through Paris)
Dusseldorf, Germany    Level3
Hamburg, Germany       TeliaSonera
---------------------  ----------------

I’d be interested to know if there are any people on the Dusseldorf servers which are experiencing the latency/lag problem the rest of us experience, since Telia (at least for me) isn’t involved in the network path at all — purely Level3 all the way.

Also, there’s an absurd amount of focus on Paris in general. I’m willing to bet Paris network congestion is the cause for many of the latency/lag problems as of late, especially now that I can see just how many servers are at that POP…
