Common Symptoms of Lag and Connectivity Issues

  • Character(s) moving randomly or sporadically around the map, also known as rubber banding or warping.
  • Attacks appear to land, but the damage or effects aren’t registering.
  • You and/or other players appear to be stuck or running in place.
  • Sudden, frequent disconnects from the game.
  • Frequent lag or lag spikes

Tip: In online gaming, lag is a noticeable delay between the action of players and the reaction of the server in a video game. We get it, you totally pressed your button before the other guy, and lag is what got you killed.

Quick Fixes

  • Make sure that your computer isn’t downloading Windows updates, other games, etc. Performing tasks that involve downloading updates can drastically decrease your computer’s available bandwidth.
  • Identify if others in your household are running high bandwidth applications like video streaming, or online gaming. Closing high bandwidth applications or turning off high bandwidth devices may reduce latency.
  • Don’t use a VPN or Proxy while playing, they can cause connectivity issues such as high latency.
  • Make sure your system clock is set to the correct time. To learn more about setting your time and time zone, go to Microsoft Support.
