I'm trying to play Overwatch and Starcraft and my ping has been stuck at 135ms. But I take ping tests online and they show it being normal at around 14. Any idea what's going on here? Just started happening today.

Probably issues between you and their servers.
Even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality

I get that a lot with blizzard. I'll be in vent with friends while playing heroes of the Storm. Heroes of the Storm stutters and lags but vent is completely fine.

Looked for suggestions on Blizzard's site. Did a DNS flush. Tried going into SC again and had my normal ping. But then I went to OW and still had a ping that was locked at 137. Went back to SC again and had fluctuations of 900-200 ping again. Tried switching to a wired connection, same issue. Everything else online works fine. I'd like to think the issue was on Blizzard's end, but I don't see anyone else mentioning issues. So it looks like it's just going to be a fun game of trouble shooting.

Can't believe I didn't know about this site. Apparently it is a widespread issue in my area. Glad it's not just me.

Check in battle.net if you have the region set to the correct region. I am in Europe but can also use "Americas" but obviously it gives me a worse ping.

You can always try Haste out to reroute your traffic to the game server.
