As every serious MMOFPS player already knows, most of the multiplayer lag, ping and latency issues are caused by the performance of your computer, operating system and Internet connection speed followed by Internet Service Provider issues and game server problems.
XBOX, Wii U OR PALYSTATION & Lag in MOH Multiplayer mode
If you play on XBOX, Wii U or PlayStation 3 the best bet is to check your extended memory stick, verify that all wires are plugged in correctly and your wireless antenna is fully functional! You can also check here for a solution on how to connect your XBOX to your computer to share its tuned & tweaked internet connection for performance increase!
Computer hardware causes lag, latency and ping issues
As already mentioned, when your computer doesn't meet the Medal of Honor Warfighter system requirements or has malfunctioning internal or external parts (like USB or router, modem so on) MOH lags. In order to fix lag issues caused by hardware malfunction you need to replace the malfunctioning part(s) or upgrade them based on the system requirements!
Note that commonly mouse lag is caused rather by your processor, RAM or Graphic Card and not by your mouse!
Operating System causes lag, latency and ping issues
A slow performing operating system doesn't only cause graphics flickering, audio issues or overall game performance issues; it also slows down the sending and receiving of data packages (which contain game information) over the Internet. A slow performing operating system can for example cause a high ping, even if you have a high speed internet connection. The delay of sending and receiving data packages can cause graphics flickering, sound delays, action lag, disconnections and login issues as well!
To be on the safe side, download or buy Latency Optimizer and maintain your operating system periodically! Also keep in mind that you need a clean system (no infections) as well.
Internet connection causes lag, latency and ping issues
Your local internet connection settings and related peripherals also depend on how fast your internet speed performs and how high the ping is. It is not allays your ISP that causes issues. Consult with the manual or manufacturer of your router or modem on how to change active filters, port forward or how to make custom game settings. You can use the 45 tweaks and tunes of Latency Optimizer to speed up your internet connection performance, lower your ping and reduce latency!
Internet Service Provider - causes lag, latency and ping issues
If your ISP has technical issues or just doesn't provide you with the speed and quality of your internet connection, you can do a speed and ping test with Latency Optimizer or download our free speed test application Speedtest4free here. You can save, compare and analyze the results of your tests and use this data to troubleshoot the issues with your ISP!
If your ISP has gateway issues you might want to sign up with a tunnel or game proxy service. But note that that only makes sense for gateway issues and you still depend on the service of your ISP. In the case of the main service lagging, no tunnel or proxy service can help you!!!
Game Server causing lag, latency and ping issues
If lag is caused by game server latency and ping issues there is nothing you can do from your end! Only the Medal of Honor server admins can solve the issues!
