Battlefield 3 – Battlelog cannot see ping – Fix

    Categories: Games

Battlefield is another bar raising FPS game from DICE. Battlefield 3 uses Battlelog to enable players to get into multiplayer maps. Sometimes the ping for these servers are not shown by Battlelog. Joining a high ping server will result in the player lagging and getting shot at even though he has moved away. Its important to join servers with the lowest possible ping times.

If you are facing the problem of not seeing ping in Battlelog, it is probably because ICMPv4 is being blocked. We don’t need to go into the technicality of what it is but the blocks are usually in place to prevent hackers from flooding the system with ping requests. There are 2 places where ICMPv4 is usually blocked. The Windows firewall generally keeps it blocked, sometimes your router may also do this but it is uncommon.
