The whole thing is that server ping isn't relevant.

Your ping time to the server is not related to games, only your connection to other players matters... the server isn't part of the game.

If I am on Mars playing 1's with another guy on Mars we both have like 20 minute server ping times, but we could play each other with no lag. It  would take 20 minutes to /m each other though, because that goes via the server.


Moral: Server ping time != lag ...... BUT it can show up issues (like if a player is on Mars).

So I've thought about this a little bit. I figure the delay is the internal delay given by warcraft 2 netcode itself(low latency). I've had this delay happen on starcraft 1 on patch 1.16 and below as well.

I figure if warcraft 2 had a turnrate configuration like sc does, then I wouldn't be having delay issues.

Also, is there something similar to chaoslauncher for warcraft2? It had the option to play on LAN setting(better than low latency) for online play.

I just registered to the forum because I just found this topic that is also my problem about.

As Szwagier mentioned, the lag Im having during games is huge and I feel like I dont have any control on my units at all. About 1 seconds delay, makes this unplayable for me at all. Setting for lan latency often doesnt change anything for better. But from time to time it's ok, units are responding to my commands very fast and game is running very smooth, I can feel it, since I got 144 hz monitor (dont know if this matters in war2 :D). Sooo, its;s not like its impossible for me to play war2 without this huge delay. But i cant find the problem what is causing it. I am from Europe, servers are in Europe (?), so everything should be ok. I have 3 Internet connections, tried all of them, and the problem is with every of them. Just pinged server.war2.ru and here are the results :

This is not CPU for sure since on single player game works great. I have just read whole thread and found Lambchops posts very interesting.

I could guess, and will do shortly, but as you sound a bit sceptical, first try this:

1) Start a server game with just you and AI players.
2) Turn off your router


Yeah I did this test, and lag was still there. I guess it's problem with my computer then. I tried this solution:

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/398115-possible-fix-for-a-lot-of-users-lag-updated-tcp-affects-udp-packet-loss/

but seems it doesnt help at all :D Maybe problem is that I have about 250 active TCP connections? Lambchops do you have any ideas? :P

Also, VPN doesnt help for lag, even make it bigger, but only allows you to play without any conflicts with other players (which happens to me when I play on my mobile internet)
