Lag in Final Fantasy XIV? It is common for players to experience problems related to high ping. With the release of the Shadowbringers expansion this Friday, have a better experience on your raids following tips:
TIP 1: CLOSE PROGRAMS THAT ARE CONSUMING RAM MEMORY
If there are too many open programs on your computer, this can lead to poor game performance. Take a look at the Task Manager and review the applications that are consuming your computer’s RAM. Close any programs that are running unnecessarily.
TIP 2: DO A PING TEST
1. Open the Windows Start menu and type “cmd”
2. Type “ipconfig” and then press enter.
3. Then save the IP number
4. Then type in the next cmd “ping” + your IP number
TIP 3: BE ATTENTIVE TO YOUR ETHERNET CONNECTION
