How to fix a high ping issue and have a lag-free game
Everyone hates lag, right? Sure. Lag is the biggest enemy of gamers around the world. All online games suffer from latency issues, whether it’s games like MMORPGss, MOBAs, or competitive team games. League of Legends: Savage Rift is no exception to this. Wild Rift players may encounter lagging issues due to various reasons, depending on region, server status, Wi-Fi, mobile data, etc. In this article, we’ll look at a few methods that can help reduce connection issues and fix in-game lag in Wild Rift.
How to fix in-game lag in League of Legends: Wild Rift
1. Lags due to internet connectivity
Sometimes our Wireless may experience connectivity issues, which in turn affects connectivity in Wild Rift. Try switching your connection to 4G/mobile data then log back into Wild Rift. If that doesn’t work, try changing your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
2. Nearest Server
It is very important to make sure that you have chosen the server closest to you geographically. For example. if you are in Europe, always choose EU servers only. It is the same N / A (North America), IEC (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Uzbekistan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Georgia), SEA (Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam), Oceania (Australia and surrounding areas), Japan and MENA (Middle East and North Africa). If your region is locked to another server, contact Wild Rift Support here.
3. In-game dual connectivity mode to reduce lag
If you are having latency issues due to your mobile data or Wi-Fi failing at random times, this feature is a godsend for you. Dual channel communication was introduced in Wild Rift to ensure that if one fails, the other will balance it. It also automatically connects to the faster of the two modes so you don’t have to worry about checking which mode is faster all the time. Here’s how you can start using the feature:
- To connect to Wild Rift
- Open your Settings tab
- Press the other button
- There you will see the dual channel communication function and you can activate it.
- You are now ready to use dual channel communication to ensure a smoother gaming experience.
4. Avoid using a VPN
We understand that gamers all over the world want to get their hands on Wild Rift because it’s such an awesome game. But it’s still in the Beta phase, so it is only available in certain regions. Players in whose region the game is not available try to circumvent this problem by downloading it and connecting to it via VPN (Virtual Private Network).
But that only makes the game worse for everyone involved in the game. The player using the VPN faces high ping issues, while the players not using the VPN in the same match also face lag. To reduce it, it is recommended to wait until Wild Rift is released in your region so that you can play with the lowest possible ping and with minimal, if any, lag.
5. Check your Wi-Fi connectivity
The majority of the Wild Rift player base uses Wi-Fi services to play the game. However, these services can be very unreliable at times. Additionally, poor Wi-Fi leads to an even worse connection. Therefore, before playing a match, always make sure your Wi-Fi is working properly. If not, try restarting the router, and if that doesn’t work, the last resort is to replace it with a better router.
6. Regularly clean your RAM and background apps
Sometimes lag can also be caused by a large number of internet-enabled applications being used at the same time. Make sure to clean up your phone’s RAM and also close your background apps. This ensures that no other application is using your internet connection other than Wild Rift.
