What is Lag, and how does it affect my gameplay?
In computing, "latency" describes some type of delay. It typically refers to delays in transmitting or processing data, which can be caused by a wide variety of reasons. Latency in your network traffic can cause interruptions while you game, making them feel unresponsive or choppy. Most gamers call this lag!
In games where timing is critical, such as first-person shooters and real-time strategy games, a stable low latency connection is always desirable. These connections will come with less lag, which provides a smoother gaming experience.
