View Full Version : X1 latency - new players

The free game has a new wave of WiFi players that must have their router wrapped in foil. I couldnít even get guaranteed heavies off last game.

People always complain that 400ms lights are too fast. No they are not. Itís latency that makes them even faster that you canít react to.

The real enemy of this game are peoples internet connections.

I see people that have so much WiFi jitter it makes the game probably 15fps.

Iím seeing players avg 100ms latency that jumps between 60-150ms.

It's just how it is. Blame Microsoft and Sony for making machines with in built WiFi. Consoles are aimed at casual gamers. That's not intended as an insult. By casual gamers I mean people who don't particularly want to cable their house with Cat 6 just so they can play video games, which is most people tbh. Crappy WiFi connections are here to stay so best to try to get used to it until WiFi tech improves enough to reduce latency to acceptable levels. Just be thankful you weren't trying to play 16 player Quake on 33600 dial up.
