VALORANT North America Game(playing from SLC)
Thank you for sending this packet dump. However do you know which location of the game server you're connecting? Frankly I didn't play VALORANT yet so no idea how the game client picks a game server.
RIOT Games did not provide any specific IP's for their servers but I know they have a Las Vegas and California server. I have had the best luck so far with the Enzu Los Angeles Server. I was wondering if there's a way to track packet sending addresses based on the Dump provided above? Because I don't know exactly where the game server is or where the packets need to be sent.
When I checked the game packet dump properly, it looks that they're anycast technology to reach the game server. For example based on your game dump file, it points that the game server IP is 126.96.36.199 but this IP is anycase IP so it's not easy that how your packet does pass-through.
If you're familiar with traceroute, I think you can test against to this IP which routers are used to reach there.
