Extreme lag/session lost/rubber-banding makes the game unplayable
Closed, ResolvedPublic


With a dsync of 0 and a ping of 80 at the most, the game is literally unplayable. It will take a good 2 minutes to open a door, getting hit by zombies that aren't there, trying to run and character is teleporting all over the field. Also trying to equip something like the flashlight in your hands takes like 2 minutes.This happens on every server I join. If that's not enough, after about 10 minutes max of lag and yellow chain, the game will give me "Session Lost" and kick me from the server. Its NOT antivirus, computer specs are way beyond what this game requires, can play so many other online games with literally no lag for hours on end. Even the old WarZ: Survivor Stories runs great. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can't say much other than that I so far only experienced rubber-banding when the server was getting restarted.

I do get the red chain symbol and connection loss message every now and then, but these occasions are really rare and yellow chain symbol is even more rare.

Have you ever tried to play on a server with less than 80 ping?

Maybe posting your computer specs as well as your connection specs would help others to get a better grip on your problem.

I ALWAYS get the yellow chain. And yes I've played even on a 35 ping server. Again, dsyncy is 0 (don't quite know what it is, but buddy told me it impacts lag if its high or something).
Computer specs are as follow: Core i5 3570K, MSI GeForce 680 Lightning, 8 GB of 2133 MHz RAM and that's all I think would matter in terms of gaming, but if you need anything else let me know. As for connection, I'm on WiFi, 16 Mbps, so at most i have a 1.6 megabyte download rate and I think about half of that for upload. I'm not very good with networking, so i don't know if what I gave you is enough.

Either way, thank you so much for the reply. I really appreciate any help I can get. Can't play this game and I spent money on it so that kinda sucks.
