Ways to Improve Latency?

  • Howdy,

    As of the last update my connection to the servers seems to have gotten worse. I used to consistently get 5 bars and now I bounce between 1 and 2 bars. It's mayhem when I'm trying to play the one gamemode that is most enjoyable to me, and it's the gamemode that punishes you the most (S&D).


    So my question is what I can do to help improve my connection with the game server. I also dislike how one person with bad ping will drag down the rest of the server because of latency.

    :!:Currently looking for a team to play with and get better with.:!:

    Ping value is determined by how far you are from the server you are currently accessing. For example, if you are playing from South-east asia, You are likely to get a high ping from both EU and NA servers.


    If this problem of yours is new, then there is something wrong with your routing of data (i.e. its taking a longer path than it should). Try restarting your router or switch to a dedicated line connection. Contact your ISP and check if they're having any problems. Sometimes, a VPN works, but not always


    If the problem is server sided, the there is nothing really you could do about it.

    Is this a signature?
