Sometimes hops on my internet connection to EU severs bottom down and it's nearly never an issue on my ISP's side. It's always a busy hop on the european end before it reaches servers which in the end screw me over. So when I try to get a different hop by using VPN, the game doesn't let me connect. I don't know what your policy against VPN is but I'd appreciate it if you could find a solution so I don't get screwed over by companies in between, managing the hops that I can't complain to.

Just throwing first thing that came to my mind: are you sure your VPN connection supports all the ports game is using?

nope. I just tested it on pingplotter and it gave me an error about port. Oh well, so much for playing when I want to instead of when hops are okay.

There are VPN providers that seem to dedicate themselves to gaming, and many others seem to offer (limited) free trials. Might have to try a few. Bandwidth isn't really important for WoT, so any service with some hundred megabytes should last a while. Windows should have some setting meant for data control if you're worried Windows Update will go haywire and mess up your quota.

Not hugely helpful I know but my VPN connects without a problem.

 

Maybe worth asking your VPN helpdesk for a solution?

VyprVPN seems to provide 3 day trial but they want credit card information up-front and I find that a little greedy. If you know any low latency VPN I'd be happy to check out.

I use Express VPN which is well reviewed though is one of the more expensive ones but if you want to try they do offer a 30 day money back trial (i.e. need to pay first).  I haven't found any latency issues personally and the speeds are pretty similar to what I get through my normal ISP. They show these protocols supported on their website OpenVPN (TCP, UDP), L2TP-IPsec, SSTP, and PPTP
