This ping is really too much. AMZgame, do you have any plans about this?
Or you don't just care as long as you receive money?

The ping is simply the amount of time it takes from data to be sent from the players device to the server and return again.... the most common cause is heavy traffic / congestion on the route the connection is taking or a bad connection.


Think of it this way..... you are driving to the next town, no traffic = low ping.... heavy traffic = high ping.... 


Players use the argument that high ping means that the next town is responsible for heavy traffic and therefore the next town should fix the issue.........


Now some countries like the Philippines, india and china will experience a high ping at times because of their networks are not able to handle the traffic and connections can get congested...... 


Now use the argument that if you go to a different site, it loads faster without many issues, and you are correct, because that site uses a different route to ROG... so your answer is use a VPN to reroute the connection to ROG

That may give you a better, less congested connection and lower ping rate.........


We can not change the route your connection takes to the server and back to you without moving the servers to different parts of the world and even then, it may not fix the issue of your country having connections on heavy traffic routes.

any suggestion on how to setup this VPN to ROG ? I am not sure and haven't used it before. I was in NZ until now so never needed it but somehow feel the need to have it now. Any document or specific VPN that helps smooth out the ping with ROG server ?

VPN reroute your connection.... so if you were in asia, you would set a VPN to reroute the connection along a different route.....


I live in NZ, I use a 15 MB connection running multiple servers without lagging.... but I know that a high speed connection is not always the best connection for gaming as it depends on the route my connection uses.....

its why I have not got fibre optic yet......


Do a google search for a VPN program, there are some out there that you can just turn on, select the route for the connection to take and you should be good to go...... unfortunately a lot of programs do require payment.....

Unfortunately and this is a big problem, VPN are only as good as your connection.....which means if you have a 15 mb connection like me, its not going to give you a 100 gig connection......

so while rerouting the connection may work.... if you are in the phillippines with a 2-5 mb shared connection, you are still going to have a bad connection
