I have been running BF2042 since it came out. TBH i also did the BETA.
Anyway in that time, I have had NO Issues with LAG or DISCONNECTIONS.
I run in on my PC via Wired connection, to an ASUS router, with my SH4 in Modem mode. This helps alot. Maybe i am just lucky on VM.
All i can say is Well done VM.
-- Red (VM SH2 AC Beta tester) Running on 1Gbps VM service with SH4 in Modem Mode, with a ASUS GT-AX6000 router. With this setup I get Fantastic WIRED and WIRELESS Signals in my home. I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech. My advice is at your own risk. If you are happy with my answers please press Kudo ?
I think it might depend on the area you're living in and the time of day/night you're gaming. For me it's near impossible to game online now, I get huge jitter spikes every few minutes that completely ruins it. For the price I'm paying I've finally given up and going over to somewhere cheaper.
